Summer’s in full swing. My kid is out of the house most days and nights right now, spending the night with a friend across the street, playing Xbox over at his house during the day. Kinda start to miss him after a while! 😉 The heat’s still a problem, but at least my husband has Wednesday off work so we can play cards, catch up on TV, and spend some time together as a family. We’ll just do it all inside! (Except when the hubby goes out to grill hamburgers and sausage for dinner. More power to him outside in the almost hundred degree heat! 😉 ) Now, let’s see what we think you should be watching tonight in the comfort of your AC. 😉
Last week’s Rizzoli & Isles was kind of heartbreaking and really disturbing. I love that they brought up the fact that stuff like domestic abuse was covered up by the police when the abuser was a police officer. You really had to feel for the cop’s son, who had been locked up in a mental institution because his father hadn’t wanted him to spill the beans that he’d murdered his wife. And then, when he shot his son and said he had to do it… I wanted to kick my TV. And then you have to hand it to Maura & Angela. Maura may not known for sure that Angela would do something about it, but she had to have had SOME idea. And Angela…setting Jane & Casey up to meet? I was so glad to see that first step. My heart broke for Jane and Casey both as he left the bar and she watched him go, crying.
I really love this show for a variety of reasons, but the friendship between Jane & Maura, the relationship between Jane & her family…I’m not sure there’s anything else like it on TV, especially with 2 female leads. And I’m really excited about tonight’s episode because we start to learn more about Maura’s birth mother. Excellent.
On tonight’s episode, “Throwing Down the Gauntlet,” Jane looks for a way for Maura to meet her biological mother, Dr. Hope Davis (guest star Sharon Lawrence). Angela gets involved in a political campaign. And a nun from Jane and Frankie Jr.’s past returns. Matthew Del Negro and Jenny O’Hara also guest star.
Check it out tonight on TNT at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Rizzoli & Isles @ Clicker.
