Rizzoli & Isles The Complete Sixth Season

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 6/20/16

I love this show and always have. I'm sorry to see it end soon. It's one of the few female shows on TV and the only one that focuses on two women in particular. The rest are all ensemble shows or are focused on a male-female pairing.

In this 6th season, they have one good arc story where Jane is targeted by a former cop, now a criminal. The woman burns down her home, hacks into her electronic life and kidnaps Maura, just for starters. I thought it was a pretty good story, but I don't really watch for the cop stuff. I watch it for the relationships between Jane, Maura, and their families and co-workers. That's the best thing about this show.

I'm very glad I got this collection because even though I try to catch every new episode, there were a few I had missed for some reason, including one pivotal episode where Jane and Maura go out to California to pursue a lead.

I was very saddened by the episode where Maura's assistant Susie dies. The season finale was also very gripping and a great shocker of an ending.

If you're a fan of the show, you should definitely get this set. There aren't a lot of extras. It just has one short feature "From the Shadows: A Criminal Revealed," where they talk about the season's arc story.






Four-Disc Set Features All 18 Episodes from the Popular Drama’s Sixth Season

Plus Never-Before-Seen Bonus Material

BURBANK, CA (February 10, 2016) – Some of Boston’s most intriguing murder mysteries set the stage for season six of the hit cable series Rizzoli & Isles, which will be released on DVD by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) on June 7, 2016. Join one of television’s hottest crime-solving teams as Angie Harmon (Law & Order) and Sasha Alexander (NCIS) star in 18 gripping episodes of the enormously popular cable TV series’ sixth season. Titled Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete Sixth Season, this must-own DVD release will also feature bonus content.  Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete Sixth Season will retail for $39.99 SRP.  Order due date has been set for May 3, 2016.

Based on the best-selling crime thriller books by Tess Gerritsen, Rizzoli & Isles focuses on tough-as-nails Boston police detective Jane Rizzoli (Harmon), who has an uncompromisingly brash and beautiful bull-in-a-china-shop approach to both cases and life, and the brilliant medical examiner from a privileged background, Dr. Maura Isles (Alexander), who may be the best-dressed science nerd in New England. Together they are close friends and complete opposites who solve some of Boston’s most notorious crimes.

In Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete Sixth Season, Jane and Maura are put in charge of investigating a number of challenging criminal cases. The duo gets wrapped up in the world of competitive bass fishing when a leading champion tournament fisherman is killed. The team must solve the murder of a victim who is found buried in a shallow grave. When a teenage girl’s body is found inside of a cage, the duo sets out to find her killer. Jane and Maura investigate the murder of a college student, who they learn had 32 girlfriends.  The duo’s detective skills are put to the test when they investigate the case of a dog trainer who is found dead at her home and the prime suspect is her champion Rottweiler.  Jane and Maura travel to Los Angeles to investigate a murder that has connections to Boston. Season six is loaded with several more captivating new cases that promise to keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

In its sixth season, Rizzoli & Isles remains a top ratings performer, delivering close to seven million viewers per episode and ranking as the #4 scripted drama on basic cable season to-date among total viewers and as the #1 series on TNT.* Currently, the full sixth season of Rizzoli & Isles is not available to stream via any SVOD service.

“The chemistry between Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander is delightful. As Jane and Maura, they share a friendship most of us would envy. It’s one of the key reasons Rizzoli & Isles is such a hit with viewers,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. She added,   “With its talented cast, compelling storylines and top notch production, Rizzoli & Isles continues to deliver. We’re delighted to release another season of this outstanding show on DVD.”

In addition to Harmon and Alexander, the series stars Jordan Bridges (Rushlights, Mona Lisa Smile) as Frankie Rizzoli Jr., Jane’s younger brother who is now following in her footsteps as a detective; with Bruce McGill (Lincoln, Law Abiding Citizen) as the seasoned and lovable Detective Vince Korsak, Rizzoli’s former partner; and Lorraine Bracco (The Sopranos) as Jane’s nosy but warm-hearted mother, Angela Rizzoli, who moved into Maura’s guesthouse after her recent divorce and works at the coffee shop inside the Boston Police Department.  Also in season six, Idara Victor (TURN: Washington’s Spies) joins the cast as a series regular, continuing her role as crime scene analyst Nina Holiday, and Adam Sinclair (24: Live Another Day) guest stars as Kent Drake, an assistant medical examiner in Maura’s office.

Rizzoli & Isles is produced for TNT by Ostar Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television. Developed by Janet Tamaro (Sleeper Cell), the series is executive produced by Bill Haber (TNT’s Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King) and showrunner Jan Nash (Without a Trace, Unforgettable).
