WHOAH! What an INTENSE first episode! I expected some coolness but this was a bit more than I expected. Within the first several minutes you can feel the comradery between the team of Rizzoli & Isles. Most of the episode was focused on Jane Rizzoli, her connection to the serial killer, and how the team go about “nailing the sonsofbitches”, as Rizzoli would put it. The humor was onbeat with the closeness of the relationships and I found myself laughing a few times!
First thing that cracked me up?! When Rizzoli opens the door only to find her mother standing there with a huge grin on her face holding a pillow! Moms….hahaha!
As mom takes over Rizzoli’s flat, Rizzoli becomes overwhelmed and whose house does she go to? Isles!! Ooohhh….la la
Then there is a scene where they are lying in bed together and there is a tad bit of flirting!
Would be nice if something happened between these two later in the episodes but that’s just yuri-ful thinking because they are both straight according to the books. This show seems like it has a lot of potential! Rizzoli is intelligent, she admits her vulnerabilities but remains strong enough to fight them, she’s attractive, plays basketball, and she has a fab sense of humor! Isles on the other hand is the complete opposite. We don’t know too much about her yet except that she is a walking encyclopedia, has a pet tortoise, and dresses to kill. One thing they both have in common aside from being two strong intelligent women? They have GORGEOUS HAIR! Seriously! It always looks amazing!
I’m looking forward to watching Episode 2!
