Rizzoli & Isles—Review

March 21, 2015 22:03 – 22:03

If you’re looking for a good TV series with warmth, humor, and strong female characters, this is the show for you. It is one of the best shows I’ve ever had the pleasure to watch. I just finished the 5th season series finale, and a 6th season has been ordered, to begin in June, 2015.

The series is based on novels by Tess Gerritsen—which are also wonderful. There were 11 in the series as of 2014. I hope there are going to be more.

My favorite character in the show is Maura Isles, wonderfully played by Sasha Alexander. She is a brilliant medical examiner, who is somewhat socially clumsy and a nerd’s nerd. Think Dr. Temperance Brennan, but less abrasive and conceited, and with more warmth. Jane Rizzoli is played by Angie Harmon. She is the exact opposite of Maura Isles. They are wonderfully paired, and the banter between them is hilarious.
