Tonight at 9p on TNT, Sasha Alexander directs her first episode of Rizzoli & Isles and the show came up with an interesting way to take her off the case and give her a little less camera time for an episode.
Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) is called out to a murder at a park, but the victim is missing his phone. When they call the guy’s number, the phone leads them to a second victim who is alive. Not only is he alive, but he has a connection to Isles (Alexander) that no ones about. The two of them were married. Shock and awe!
Since she was married to him, she has to excuse herself from the case. But that doesn’t mean she is excused from her past with him and his evil mother.
Will Isles get back together with her college sweetheart? More importantly who tried to kill him? The latter Rizzoli will be working on. Just when you think you figured it, you find out you didn’t.
It is sad that the police procedural is ending because Alexander proved she is just as good in front of the camera as she is behind it. I would like to see her direct more often because she definitely proved herself with tonight’s episode.
Tonight at 9p on TNT, Rizzoli & Isles celebrates its 100th episode with Jane (Angie Harmon) going to jail.
Before you freak out, she is doing so because she is going undercover to solve a crime. In order to be believable, she gets a tattoo and puts her hair in a braid. She really looks the part as she goes from good cop to bad a$$ prisoner, but will the other inmates believe she is really one of them? Will one of them recognize her as their arresting officer? Did Jane get herself into a situation she can’t get out of?
One thing is for certain, the experience will change her forever. That change is setting up for the series finale on September 7th.
Even though Uncle Buck did better in the ratings than some of ABC’s other shows like The Real O’Neals, the network decided to cancel the summer sitcom. The show’s star James Lesure broke the news on Twitter this morning, hours after the season, now series, finale aired.
I think they made a huge mistake because the remake based on the John Hughes’ film, was actually really well done and funny. Much stronger than O’Neals, Black-ish and Modern Family. They would’ve been better off keeping it as a back up for the midseason because they are going to need it when O’Neals and Downward Dog fail.
Maybe Freeform, Aspire, BET or TV One will consider saving this show. I doubt they will, but this fan is hoping they consider it.
UPDATE: While the news is gloomy over at ABC, TNT and TBS had some sunny news for their viewers. TNT renewed Animal Kingdom for a second season, and TBS picked up both of their sitcoms Angela Tribeca and Wrecked. While I still miss Sullivan & Son, Ground Floor and Clipped, I am happy that TBS is is keeping those comedies on their lineup. They are not as good as the other three, but they are definitely entertaining.
Murder in the First is back for its third season tonight at 10p on TNT and it is going to be an interesting season.
Terry English (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) are called in to investigate a shooting at a nightclub, but it is no ordinary murder. Normandy is the Quaterback of today and it is 30th birthday. While his girlfriend Popstar Alicia Barnes (Sara Paxton) is singing Happy Birthday to him, someone shoots and kills him. Now everyone is San Fransisco wants to know who killed him and why. The pressure is growing on them to solve this case yesterday, but there is not enough evidence to arrest anyone. Heck there is not even enough evidence for anyone to be a suspect.
If that is not enough for them to handle, Hildy gets news that will change her life forever.
Finally, Chief Prosecutor Mario Siletti (Currie Graham) is arguing with his wife as they drive home from his birthday party. He takes his eyes off the road to fight with his wife and he hits and kills a woman. He knows the system better than anyone else. Will that knowledge be enough to get him off from the DUI and murder? Will homicide be smarter than him?
We will just have to tune in every week for what looks another great season of Murder in the First.
Angie Tribeca (Rashida Jones) is back for a whole new season tonight at 9p and the premiere is explosive. That’s because after Tribeca and Jay Geils (Hayes MacArthur) have sex, she blows up. She spends the next 9 months in a coma and he has moved on. He is now dating the coroner and had a baby a woman from Canada that no one has met. As soon as Tribeca is awake again, she is ready to get back to work.
Their first case is going to be a ruff one. A man’s body is found in a dog park and they have to find out who killed him. Was it his ex-wife? The dog trainer? Or someone else? Does it really matter? Because you are going to be concentrating on all of the witty jokes.
In fact, you are going to want to record all the episodes, so you can watch them over and over and over again until you get all the jokes. Some are more obvious than others, and some are just so smart, you are like did they just do that?
Especially in the second episode at 9:30p where they try to find out who killed a Michelin Star Sushi Chef. That is only the beginning of the crazy cases they will be investigating during season 2. Did I mention the insane guest stars they have on the show like James Franco, Heather Graham, Maya Rudolph, Joey McIntyre, Aaron Carter and Joe Jonas. The last 3 are going to be on the Boyz II Dead episode, can you guess what it is about? But the craziest episode is next week when Jay Geils goes undercover as a lifeguard.
At first I didn’t like this show, but now I am so hooked I feel like a fish out of water.
Also at 9p but on TNT, Rizzoli & Isles are back for their final few episodes. Tonight’s 2 hour season premiere starts off where the season finale left off. We find out who was shot outside Korsak’s (Bruce McGill) wedding. As the soon as the gun shots stop, Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) and her brother Frank (Jordan Bridges) chase after the shooter. Even though they chased after them immediately, they can’t find them. Now everyone including Isles (Sasha Alexander) are going to work their hardest to find Alice Sands before she strikes again.
As they look for her, they are going to suffer the effects from the shooting. Some will experience it physically and others emotionally. At the end of the two hours, you will begin to see where this show is going to wrap up its run.
Something that still leaves me speechless. I don’t know why TNT cancelled it because it is the best show they have.
