TNT video: Rizzoli & Isles, Season Two Rewind
We all know from all the TNT promos and teasers that Jane and Maura are on the outs after Jane changed her mind and might've shot Maura's criminal father, Paddy in the Season 2 finale, leading Maura to get all primal on Jane.
My own intuition -and knowledge of how TV dramas like to resolve things- tells me that as the first few episodes develop and the facts emerge, it'll become clear that that it wasn't bullets from Jane's gun that did the deed but rather bullets from the gun of Jane's love-interest on the DL, FBI Agent Dean.
Which will be how and why the Internal Affairs folks come into the picture and "out" their relationship.
Did I mention yet that a few months ago, I was part of TNT's focus group that -theoretically at least - helped shape the direction of the print ads for Rizzoli & Isles this season?
There were some really good ones and some ones that seemed, well, not quite so inspired.
In any case, when they start showing-up in the usual media sources, I'll comment here from time-to-time on the news ones, since I kept notes on what I originally thought of the various renderings we were given to examine, and how they ranked among the ones I graded.
While every show always likes to add viewers, at this point, since they have a winning formula and are getting very good ratings and have advertisers very interested in being associated with the show, I think their priority ought to stay on making the show more consistent and on keeping their present viewers happy and properly motivated, not expending energy trying to get new viewers by portraying the show as something it's not.

Given what I've written here in the past about how much I like the stars and the show, it probably won't surprise you to learn that I'd watch this even if it were a silent film...
Above, beautiful and talented -and like me, Texas-born- Angie on the cover of the September 2000 Texas Monthly, which I bought when I still lived in Arlington County, VA -and was flying pretty frequently. The particulars are that I bought it in August of 2000 while I was at a Walmart located on the drive from DFW Airport to Sulphur Spings, halfway between Dallas and Texarkana on I-30, for a fabulous-but-hot weekend that featured the wedding of my dear friend, Shannon.
