Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Oh, how I've missed you! Sasha Alexander & Angie Harmon's Rizzoli & Isles, and Kyra Sedgwick & Co.'s The Closer are back to delight us again tonight!

TV Guide magazine video: Rizzoli & Isles secrets! Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander tell all!

Two of my favorite TV shows, TNT's Rizzoli & Isles and The Closer are FINALLY back tonight after what seems like forever. Or years.
Well, that is, it would seem like years if I didn't habitually watch the repeats, with Rizzoli & Isles having been run on TNT the past few weeks late night to remind people why it was the second-highest ranking cable TV show debut ever when it aired last year.

Watching Sasha Alexander & Angie Harmon's smart and knowing banter and sarcasm, and Kyra Sedgwick's spot-on quirky-meets-savvy-genius leading a team of LAPD detectives to solve an inexplicable mystery is always a treat for me.

They are two of the few TV shows that I never miss or watch while on the computer, since so much of what is conveyed on them is thru facial cues, not unlike some of the best moments of MASH.
You completely miss that element of familiarity if you're on the computer.

Above, a screenshot I took of Season One's finale which was repeated last week on TNT, where Maura (Sasha Alexander, right) has come over to the apt. of Jane (Angie Harmon) to help watch over her, after a perilous situation at the police station where they were held hostage. A few seconds after this scene, where Jane tried to tell Maura how to shoot after Maura has gone over the specs, the following dialogue occurs:
Laura (to Jane) while pointing the gun towards an imaginary miscreant: "Jane, do I look like a bad ass?"

Jane (responding and chuckling while walking to the kitchen):
"Yeah, you look like a bad ass."
How can you not love a show where they say that?

TNT video:Go behind the scenes of an intense sequence on the set of Rizzoli & Isles and see how the cast train to make the action as realistic as possible.

See more interesting videos at the official homepage as Season Two begins tonight at 10 p.m.:

The season premiere of Rizzoli & Isles repeats Tuesday night at 8 p.m.

The seventh year of The Closer begins tonight at 9 p.m. and like everyone else, I'm eager to see what the repercussions are of Brenda's deliberate decision to drop-off a murdering gang-banger back in the 'hood where everyone knows that he robbed and killed someone at a neighborhood store that was off-limits for the warring gangs.
Earlier, he had conned Brenda and her Major Case Squad of detectives back at the station in a case involving three dead soldiers back from the war outside a night club, including his twin brother.
He got a plea deal for his cooperation, but afterwards, he revealed that he was the one who pulled the trigger at the store.
