My avatar? I changed it in honor of the Rizzoli & Isles convention on the 20th.
And here I thought it was Rizzoli for CONgress!

Where's the con?
It's in Anaheim, CA in a week. www.rizzlescon.net

Not too shabby, but really a good place to meet up with other fans, and Tess will be there, which is just great. I love her, I really do. She's an awesome person and very gracious with her fanbase.
Awesome! Have fun.

Although the first (Trek) convention I ever attended was on the west coast, I have trouble justifying the time/expense to fly out there now a days. (yeah, I know, that rules out any X:WP cons in my future. Too bad they haven't come east since [?] 2007.)

Can't find a rizzles con on youtube... but I did come across a great 30 min Q&A with our ladies.

Re: RIZZOLI & ISLES tv series and book series disscusions and comment

I'm more involved in the R&I fandom than I probably should be...

...I watched that Q&A live. :-)

There's no footage for an R&I convention because this is the first one. (I'm actually an organizer for it.) This may also be the last one. *shakes head* It's just too much...

Anywho, I'm VERY excited for this week's episode. Jane + handcuffs + Bed = fun time ;-)

Speaking of too much, I listened to a talkshow comparing X:WP & R&I's that promised you (or at least "an" Adm H) were going to be one of the panelists... but alas that was not to be. Maybe your life will slow down after the con, and you can "just" enjoy the show.

Or enjoy those parts of the show that strike your fancy...

those parts with handcuffs...

and kidnappers...

and...

ETA:

(what happens when You tube editors go wild)

Could be considered NSFW if you need to worry about that kind of thing.

Oh, not any where near the level of fandom that you are used to seeing from me, my dear timothy.

It's almost the case of having to settle for something while waiting for this to improve or something else comes along.

The same thing happened to me after Voy ended, and I started watching JAG. (Which became a very guilty pleasure in time)

Yes, that was me. I was going to be on, but I had a family emergency pop up on me, and I had to cancel. The hosts were very understanding, and I felt really bad for not being able to show.

I'll likely be on the show again after the convention to talk about the convention and then again to be with the XWP ladies to chat in round two of their discussion.

Meanwhile, last night's episode was pretty okay. The Texan made me want to shoot someone. We don't wear cowboy hats INSIDE. It's rude. However, there was plenty of Rizzles action, so I'm good today.

Thank God, too, because the convention would have been full of not happy ladies if it'd been another episode full of "Janie's got a boyfriend".

Re: Rizzles... yeah, I THOUGHT that final scene on the couch with the blanket would find approval on your side of the TV set.

Sorry to hear about the family emergency, we all seem to be having those kind of things lately. Hope things have smoothed over, in the interim.

Don't forget to give a heads up Re: round two of XWP vs R&I (I don't remember where I found it in the first place.)

Speaking about this week... I REALLY hated those pink high heels... even more than Jane!

One question Re: Tommy... I thought his dalliance with Lydia was BEFORE Dad came into the picture. Seems like any "non-Daddy" induced pregnancy was spawned from someone OTHER than a Rizzoli.

I got to say... as much as I hated that silly vacuum of Dr Pike's... I did love his drunken profession of love to Maura (She playes horrified well, don't you think?) As for the cowboy, I actually thought they were setting him up to be the evil texter/soon to be kidnapper, especially after I saw his "invention" brought into the crime lab.

And finally, re: the cowboy's hat... maybe he just has awful "hathead" and didn't have a comb/brush to fluff it back up?

Re: RIZZOLI & ISLES tv series and book series disscusions and comment

So, I keep up with the show, but not this thread. Last night's episode though, was shit. We have caricature medical examiners that would look cartoonish in a cartoon. The cowboy just felt really forced and silly. It didn't fit the tone of the show.

Next, the murder case is tied to Rizzoli, again. Come on, that's beyond forced. The writers couldn't invest the viewers in the case without something so trite? Maybe they should take some lessons from Angie Harmon's previous show, Law and Order. Don't get me wrong, I generally like how the characters are written on the show, I just don't enjoy the "small world" syndrome of making every other case related to the main characters.

If I were Boston PD I would be tempted at this point to force them out of town. It would be the quickest way to lower crime.

I think Cabot Cove thought the same thing about Jessica Fletcher!

This series could be so much better, and yet I still watch it for fun and catch it on the repeats or internet if I miss it. I see potential, and will continue to follow it in hopes TPTB will rise to the occasion.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5ARP_TXnB4



I love the banter.

Jane: "Listen to all swag units, we have swag distribution IN progress..."

Jane: "where I wax is my business!"

and of course...

Maura: "Pike declared his love for me."
Jane: "WHAT!"

Rizzoli & Isles episode "Cuts Like a Knife"

Hmmm.

Missed the middle of the ep, and just caught up.

Somehow I can't see our macho Jane refusing to muscle her mattress into the bedroom, with or without Maura's help, but it did provide another titillating visual at the end.

Do we really think Riley is a drug dealer, or an undercover cop?

And will we EVER find out who gained final possession of the bundt pan???

Yeah, I've seen porno start like that episode ended. Two women innocently drinking wine while lying on a mattress. Not a great ending.

Hometown Glory:

Hmmm...

I was confused by what Angela knew and didn't know about the father of Lydia's baby up until the part where she went ballistic.

Guess she didn't know.

At least Mama Rizzoli didn't try to off her 2 kids & 1 adopted kid because they were protecting her from the truth. I did like it when Angela protested that such protection made her feel less than adult.

I know we have to deal with the "grandchild vs child of my rat ex husband" story line quickly in a 15 (?) ep season, but I would have preferred more Frankie/Frost or Frankie/Jane interaction, showing how close he was to the dead man.

Did we find out why the manager was in the dead girl's room? Just to give her the bad news about Shane and the crack to off herself???

Did she off herself???

Do we care???

I guess i was confused about more than just Angela this week.

Looks like we get a break next week before the midseason finale.

Mid season finale: Melt your Heart to Stone:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIQq-OgkY_U



Decent ep, even if it was obvious who the bad guy was going to be.

We got great Rizzles banter, we got some closure (?) to the Ludia/Baby storyline, we discovered our suspicions about one bad lady proved to be right (undercover all the way!)

All in all, it was ok. Just didn't like it when Maura's backbone turned to mush so easily, early in the ep.

They must not have that big of a budget because the killer always turns out to be the main and nearly only guest star. Most procedural shows have several main guest stars which makes it a little harder to figure out whodunnit.
