Rizzoli and Isles

The new TNT series Rizzoli and Isles is bases on a series of novels by Tess Gerritsen.  I watched the first episode mainly because I like Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander and was interested in seeing them in something new.  Unfortunately the show isn't that original.  In many ways it's just another buddy cop show, this one starring two female leads.  There's a few bright spots, mainly the two characters and their relationship.  Hopefully they'll continue to improve the show and it will get better.

The show did make me pick up one of the books and let me tell you how much I enjoyed the book.  Enough that I went out and bought five more volumes in the series.  I think I"m only missing two of the books right now.  I've already read three of them.  These are really good.  Where the tv show lacks in originality the books more than make up for them.  The two characters are so strong in the book, I really hope the tv shows ends up showing more of that.

I'll keep reading the books and I'll watch the show for awhile longer, hoping it gets bettter.
