Rizzoli and Isles

Critics Consensus

Based on Tess Gerritsen's novels, Rizzoli & Isles is about as dog-eared as a paperback mystery, filled with standard characters and clichés.

Critic Reviews for Rizzoli and Isles: Season 1

Audience Reviews for Rizzoli and Isles: Season 1

  • Jun 25, 2020
    Based on the Tess Gerritsen book series, Rizzoli & Isles is an exciting, female lead police drama from TNT. The show follows a Boston homicide detective and a medical examiner who work together to solve crimes. Angie Harmon (Rizzoli) and Sasha Alexander (Isles) lead the cast and have good chemistry together; however the Isles character seems a bit like a Dr. Brennan knockoff from Bones (being over literal and socially awkward). Also, there's a bit of gender politics being played, though nothing too heavy handed. Still, the writers do a pretty good job at creating interesting cases-of-the-week and at mixing in a little comedy to lighten the tone. There are also some impressive guest stars featured, including Michael Massee, Billy Burke, Donnie Wahlberg, and Brian Dennehy. It's not the most original police drama, but Rizzoli & Isles delivers a solid first season that shows a lot of promise.

    Rizzoli & Isles is terribly unfaithful to forensic methods and science, but unbearably faithful to cliches and unoriginal standards.
