Rizzoli & Isles

"Rizzoli & Isles" review by Suzanne
Returns Tuesday, June 25 at 9/8c on TNT

I always love this show. It reminds me of "Cagney and Lacey", but it's got a lot more humor. The relationship between the two characters, and Jane's relationship with her family, is hilarious but also very heartfelt and warm.

TNT sent me 2 episodes to review.  In the first episode, "We Are Family", Dr. Isles is recovering this season from giving her kidney to the sister she didn't know she had, and she's a bit put out that the sister and her mom have not contacted her or thanked her much. Jane finds out that her old boyfriend is doing much better, but she gets some bad news as well.

This episode's murder mystery is a politician's daughter that gets shot during a public gathering. David Selby (from "Dark Shadows" and "Falcon Crest" among many other shows) has a small part as her dad.

In the second episode, "In Over Your Head", which airs July 2, we learn some more about Maura's family. Sharon Lawrence returns as her mother. The feds are investigating and following her and Maura, and we find out why. There is a big family secret!  It shows some more great background about Maura's family.

The show is the same, which is good. I hate when they make too many changes. I am enjoying it a lot so far this season! Make sure you watch.

-Rizzoli & Isles Ė Season 4 Ė Premiere: Tuesday, June 25, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)

One of cableís Top 3 shows for three consecutive years, Rizzoli & Isles will return this summer with Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander as Bostonís top crime-solving duo. Harmon is Jane Rizzoli, a tough-as-nails Boston police detective, and Alexander is Maura Isles, a smart, impeccably dressed medical examiner from a privileged background. Despite being complete opposites, the two women share an offbeat chemistry, an authentic and deep friendship and a unique working relationship that together, helps them to solve the most complex murder mysteries in the city of Boston. Rizzoli & Isles also stars Lorraine Bracco, Lee Thompson Young, Bruce McGill, Jordan Bridges and Brian Goodman. Developed for television by executive producer Janet Tamaro and developed characters created by best-selling crime novelist Tess Gerritsen, Rizzoli & Isles is produced for TNT by Warner Horizon Television, Janet Tamaroís Hurdler Productions and Bill Haberís Ostar Productions. Tamaro and Haber serve as executive producers.
