I had an opportunity to take an early look at the pilot episode for TNT's new original series, RIZZOLI & ISLES, which premieres on Monday, July 12, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) and I wanted to share an early review on the show.
Well after watching Rizzoli & Isles' pilot episode, I have to say that this official description is a bit misleading. I was expecting to watch an engaging duo of crack investigators taking on tough and complex cases and solving them in an original way. What I got instead was one of the most unoriginal and boring procedural episode that TNT has ever greenlighted.
The story in the pilot episode was extremely predictable as we are treated to a gruesome yet very unoriginal crime that is masterminded by some evil clown who has had a previous encounter with Rizzoli. This storyline has been done so many times in so many other procedurals that I am surprised it made it in the pilot episode. This came off more as a filler episode that you find in a seasoned show and not in a new show that hasn't found its audience yet.
