“Rizzoli And Isles
In this cop show, Angie Harmon stars as Jane Rizzoli, a don’t-mess-with-me Boston police detective who is pulled into a case involving a serial killer who finds ways to harm and antagonise her. Sasha Alexander stars as Maura Isles, a blunt but attractive medical examiner who sets store by a nice pair of heels. The two are great friends bonded by their dedication to their work.
Why you ought to watch: The premise of this show is so old-school that it’s now new again. If you’re too young to remember the success of Cagney & Lacey, then you’ll appreciate the fact that here is a series that isn’t about a lone dude solving crimes in the cleverest of manners while battling his own demons, but rather, about a duo of BFFs of the fairer sex who are opposites on the personality scale, solving crimes the old-fashioned way by following the clues. Most importantly, the protagonists are likeable, relatable and have good chemistry. In the US, the show’s premiere set a record for being the most-watched ad-supported cable premiere of all time – just one more reason to look forward to it.
Rizzoli and Isles starts Feb 1, Tuesdays at 8pm on Warner TV (StarHub TV Ch 515).”
