Review - Rizzoli & Isles Season 1 Episode 1 See One, Do One, Teach One

For a show called Rizzoli & Isles, I was expecting some light, buddy-cop action with the two female leads fluidly bantering all the way through. Instead, Rizzoli and Isles--or more aptly, Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander--don't have any chemistry, not that the writing ever tries to alleviate the problem.

The case was actually decent, something I'd expect on Criminal Minds, but fitting with the title of the show and intent? Certainly not.

And that pretty much sums up Rizzoli & Isles, a tonally dissonant show, going back and forth between disturbing and chirpy without much success on either end or in the middle.

Score: 7.3/10
