There’s something you should know about me, I should’ve been a detective. Seriously, I am the Sherlock Holmes of…well, my house. Friends and family hate watching any suspense shows or movies with me because I ruin it about fifteen minutes in. I know who did it and why and I do not keep my theories quiet. I work the case the whole time. Then I complain about how easy and predictable it was, and basically ruin my own viewing experience. It’s very hard for me to enjoy crime dramas and I love crime dramas! I’m pretty sure I’m famous for this—because TNT reached out and challenge me. ME! They sent me a copy of Rizzoli and Isles new season premier and I took this as not just a “please review our show” I took this as “we’ve heard about you—we know what you can do, we bet you you’ll enjoy this.” They were right, I really enjoyed this show and not just because they openly discuss how they abuse their power by searching DMV records for personal reasons (who wouldn’t do that?!) while holding a human heart in their hands. Symbolism, represent! They used a really interesting way to kill their victim and I loved that when Isles’ would say something medical Rizzoli would give a “huh?” response so when it was explained it made total sense. Not like a certain FBI crime drama where they are explaining the case to each other for the benefit for the viewer but it makes you go, “why are you explaining that to him—he’s with the BAU he understands why a knife was used!” or “She’s the M.E she gets why 37 stab wounds is overkill—she gets it.” I’ll be honest in viewing Rizzoli and Isles season premiere episode, five minutes in I was all “oh please—I know who and I know why. Go here, do this boom! It’s always the (I’m not telling you cause that’s a spoiler)”. But—I will admit I was wrong. I took Rizzoli and Isles as a silly predictable crime drama. In fact I prepared for it to be really “soapy” without emphasis on the “detective”. It wasn’t. It was smart, it was interesting, and the dynamic between the two women was refreshing. So often we seen men in these roles and women are supporting characters but Rizzoli and Isles flipped that on its end. Half way into the show I forgot I was watching a crime drama; I was so enthralled with the personal stories of the characters which can attest to the acting on this show. But then I remembered there was a murder and there are post-its filled with strange notes. Hmmmm, time to change my theory it wasn’t Ms. Scarlet in the bedroom with the gun it was (NOT TELLING YOU) with the (CAN’T SAY) and it happened because (YOU’LL SEE). Then I had to reevaluate again. Twist, after twist, after twist. But third time is a charm and on the final twist I got it. I nailed it—but it took me almost the whole episode. Maybe I’m getting soft in my old age; maybe I’ve worked this beat too long. TNT & ZeldaLily have teamed up to help my ego and your pocket. Now, I’m challenging you. Tuesday, June 25th 9/8c on TNT to see the premiere of Rizzoli & Isles. Check out the episode and leave a comment telling me what you thought, how long it took you to figure it out and you will be entered to win a prize from TNT.
