    I only just discovered Rizzoli & Isles and last night got caught up from the pilot. It is definitely a fun/sometimes serious show. Seems to have the perfect amount of everything to keep you interested. Glad to see it still going strong.

    Rats. I totally forgot Rizzoli & Isles was back. I’ll have to catch one of the repeat showings.

    Angie Harmon is one of the most beautiful and talented actresses in Hollywood, whose sole limiting factor has always been she is an unapologetic Republican in a liberal controlled media. Sasha Alexander is equally beautiful and talented and makes a perfect point/counterpoint to Angie.
