Rizzoli & Isles Review: When In Doubt, Cuddle a Puppy

" No One Mourns the Wicked " was a wickedly dark episode of Rizzoli & Isles that centered around the psychology of serial killers. There were so many fascinating facts thrown out during the hour. 70% of serial killers were abused as children. 60% have some sort of brain damage. Most are of average intelligence. They are often substance abusers and female serial killers usually work in teams.   Read More... //

Rizzoli & Isles Season 4 Review “Cold as Ice”

The latest episode of  “Rizzoli & Isles”  was the type of procedural drama I really like- the kind that keeps you guessing until the very end. In the aptly-titled  “Cold as Ice,”  a poor lady by the name of Carla Dalton first got into it with a “hockey mom,” getting her nose broken in the process, then, as if that weren’t bad enough, ended up getting her throat cut  in the parking lot  for good measure. Talk about adding insult to injury! Read More... //

Rizzoli & Isles Review: Don't Mess With Hockey Moms

Talk about a very bad day. Carla Dalton's couldn't have gone worse. On the verge of finding her nephew after a 12 year investigation, she ended up getting punched in the nose by an bad tempered hockey mom…and then she had her throat slashed with a skate hook.  " Cold as Ice " was the perfect way to describe her killer. At first I questioned why we needed to see quite so much blood during the murder scene but then it made more sense as we watched Frost grow queasy over the body. That's got to be quite a detriment for a homicide detective.   Read More... //

Rizzoli & Isles 4.07 "All For One"

een a teenage girl myself I have the right to say this: teen girls are creepy and weird. The clicks that happ en, how cruel they can be, the whole “BFF” thing; teen girls are a special breed all their own. I don’t miss high school. At. All. Of all the “issue” episodes that I’ve talked about this one hit me the hardest. As a female who was never part of the “it” crowd, but also as a parent. My seven year old will be in high school in a few years and I hate to think what the world  might be at that time. Episodes like this also make me glad I have a boy. Read more at  //  

Rizzoli & Isles Season 4 Review “All for One”

In the latest episode of  “Rizzoli & Isles,”  we had an episode that lived up to its title in  “All for One.” The plotline revolved around the death of a respected teacher that was killed in a hit-and-run. But was it an accident, or was it murder? A little bit of both, in fact. Turns out the teacher in question might have been teacher-of-the-year on several occasions, but that he was accused of some decidedly non-teacher-like behavior by more than a few of his students. Understandably, these girls were not-so-hot for teacher, under the  circumstances , which involved trading sexual favors for good grades. Somewhat ironically, though, none of the girls in question were actually in need of good grades, as they were all exceedingly smart. Read More... //

'Rizzoli & Isles' Recap: 'All For One'

Rizzoli & Isles has always been a show primarily about relationships – be they romantic, friendly, family or otherwise. This weeks episode, “All For One,” had me wanting to add the “and one for all... //

Rizzoli & Isles Review: Best Friends Forever

When the term " All for One " was coined, I'm not sure anyone thought of taking it to the extreme that Rizzoli & Isles did tonight. If anything it was a cautionary tale for anyone who thought about messing with smart, nerdy teenage girls. For all of his supposed intelligence, I couldn't help but shake my head when Mr. Sutton jumped out into the road when he heard someone gun the car engine.  As Maura mentioned in this Rizzoli & Isles quote … Maura:  That's a cruel irony. Drivers Ed teacher dies in a hit and run. Maura: That's a cruel irony. Drivers Ed teacher dies in a hit and run. | permalink Perhaps not cruel enough. When everyone was touting the dead man as a hero of a teacher I knew the opposite was bound to be revealed. And when Maura discovered Viagra in his system it was obvious he wasn't currently using it at home. Not to mention that given his physical appearance, his story about being out jogging every night was downright laughable.  Read More... //

Rizzoli & Isles Season 3 Review “Somebody’s Watching Me”

On the latest episode of  “Rizzoli & Isles,”  we got a much-needed “fun” episode after a few heavily dramatic ones over the last few weeks. Of course, this being the show it is, there was still a murder, but that happened in the beginning of the aptly-titled  “Somebody’s Watching Me,”  and from there on out it was pretty much all in good humor. The main plotline revolved around a murder in the home of a crazy old hoarder/conspiracy theorist by the name of Leroy, who thought someone was out to get him, possibly aliens. However, he insists he didn’t kill his friend Daniel, a  maintenance worker  with the misfortune to be  trolling  around in Leroy’s basement at the wrong time. Read More... //

Rizzoli & Isles Review: Jane's Very Bad Day

Anyone can have a bad day. At least that's what Angela wrote on the donation cans in the hopes of collecting for Jane's legal defense fund. How many quarters does it take to reach the $25,000 to pay the retainer for Maura's high priced attorney? " Somebody's Watching Me " had a lot of depressing undertones and if it weren't for the wonderful characters involved in the story it could have left me feeling as bad as Jane without her coffee. First off, no day starts well when you watch the people who ordered behind you get their coffees first. Been there, done that and it's always irritating, especially when you haven't had your first caffeine hit of the day. I wondered what was worse. Jane being hit with a police brutality suit for spilling coffee or having to deal with a frivolous lawsuit without the legal backup from the city of Boston.   Read More... //
