    It's a good show you ought to try it. just because two female coworkers are don't mean they have to be lesbians.

    So yeah, that tweet I quoted wasn't serious or anything. Although if they were lesbians I'd be 100% more likely to watch. Can't stand police procedurals.

    Just about the only non-reality/non-sitcom shows making it on TV these days are police procedurals. The only ones I have any interest in are "Castle," "The Mentalist" and "Body of Proof." You can flush the other 800! :guffaw:

    Watched the first few episodes of season 1 this weekened at a friends place and wasn't impressed.. i'm not a huge fan of police shows so it's hard for me to get into one.

    So.. i'll stick with Castle which has far better actors overall, is lightyears ahead in funnieness and to me is just overall better.

    Have fun if this show works for you.

    If someone really wants that angle, the gag reel from season 1 shows the two lead actors joking around in that vein.

    Incidentally, those who like Rizzoli & Isles may want to keep an eye on Scott & Bailey, a British series starring Suranne Jones (who played Idris in Doctor Who last spring), who co-created it. From what I've seen it's similar to R&I, but with more of a Cagney & Lacey feel to it. And no, the two leads don't appear to be gay in this one either; sorry. ;)

    I enjoyed last night's episode. Jaqueline Bisset did a wonderful turn as Isle's mother, but she is good in everything she does.

    I like the show as well. It's one of the few shows that I watch on a regular basis. I, too, am going to track down the books.

    For those tracking down the books, beware. Tess Gerritsen started writing romance before moving into medical thrillers and then into the medical/cop procedural arena.

    The Rizzoli/Isles books are:

    The Surgeon
    The Apprentice (the pilot was loosely based on these two)
    The Sinner
    Body Double
    Vanish
    The Mephisto Club
    The Keepsake (UK version is called Keeping the Dead)
    Ice Cold (UK version is called The Killing Place)
    The Silent Girl

    It's not the season finale, just the summer finale. R&I will be back in November with another 5 episodes.

    I'm glad we saw the return of the Surgeon, third time's a charm. And at least we know this time that he won't be coming back. Rizzoli can finally live again.
