  1. These are weird days. I feel all kinds of irrational guilt, towards Aubrey, Laura and Paula if I like his one. Towards Sasha Alexander who was so kind to tweet to me if I keep talking about the other one until I’m blue in the face which I will. The awesomeness of WMC in general and L/C in particular aside, we should never stop counting the many ways in which ABC screwed up and robbed us of the BEST OTP ever.

    That being said, I read all the Gerritsen books, and I’m thinking they’re being made into a show I’m already enjoying very much. If guiltily.

    I’m saved somewhat by the fact that with Jane and Maura, I can see friendship and that’s it. Which is cool. Also, I can’t see myself spending another 2 years writing 120plus fics. Times change.

    As for the opening scene, it’s interesting. Since we learned about R&I, I’ve been worried that it could to too gory for me (I can have it in books, but I don’t watch any CSI & the likes). When I first saw this, I was actually relieved to realize they’re leaning more on the psychologically dark.

    The point of my rambling – I understand the dilemma. And I wish, too, that Angie had said instead that she hated ABC for screwing over the best job ever.

    Oh, and we do care about your opinion! Very much, so thanks for sharing it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I was a little surprised at how dark it was. I’ll keep watching, but there were just a whole bunch of little things that bothered me about the pilot that sorta added up to general irritation. Off the top of my head:

    -Having to keep reminding myself that Rizzoli is not Lindsay. Maybe it’s just the “Angie Harmon as a cop” visual, but it was jarring every time I saw her and expected Lindsay, but got Rizzoli. It’s a little like reading bad fanfic, when the author has botched the characterization.

    -Rizzoli is not as good as Lindsay, and neither of her partners are as good as Jacobi. Plus, LTY will always be The Famous Jet Jackson in my eyes.

    -Lorraine Bracco’s accent. I mean, if she’s supposed to sound like she’s from NY/NJ, then OK, but even the Texan managed to sneak more Bostonian into her dialogue than her. And I was listening real hard to Angie’s accent.

    -The actor that plays Rizzoli’s brother. He just irks me in every single role I’ve seen him in. Not looking forward to dealing with him.

    -Another annoying FBI guy. *le sigh* Is it indicative of a developing complex that as soon as FBI Guy 2.0 showed up that I suspected him of being the Apprentice?

    -Other inevitable WMC comparisons. So Isles is a very different coroner than Washburne, but she’s kinda got Cindy’s eidetic memory thing with her Wikipedia word-vomit of random trivia. And Rizzoli lives next door to someone studying to become a lawyer. Oy.

    -R/I slashiness right off the bat when we had to work so hard for scraps and glances in WMC.

    I’m sure I’m forgetting other things as well. *shrug* Maybe I’m just cranky.

  3. I’m still processing. Actually, I think I’m gonna need another episode to really know for sure. Especially since in the latest one there was much more Boxer in the Rizzoli.

    You got your Boxer in my Rizzoli!

    You got your Rizzoli in my Boxer!

    (Personally I’d like to see more Boxer in Thomas, or vice versa) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. “Rizzoli is not as good as Lindsay, and neither of her partners are as good as Jacobi.” – Thank you! I keep getting so confused in these interviews where Angie talks like this show is so much better than WMC. Because, well, no.

    “Other inevitable WMC comparisons. So Isles is a very different coroner than Washburne, but sheโ€™s kinda got Cindyโ€™s eidetic memory thing with her Wikipedia word-vomit of random trivia. And Rizzoli lives next door to someone studying to become a lawyer. Oy.” – And don’t forget that Rizzoli’s partner has Jill’s weak stomach.

    Very succinct, Tara ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And holy Hell, Rev! *thump*

  6. I take it the thump is for my second comment?

    And now all I can think about is licking chocolate and/or peanut butter of either Lindsay or Cindy.

    …I’ll be in my bunk.
