Rizzles drizzles


Hey, Rizzoli & Isles,

Cut that shit out with the dumb Beards of the Week. We watch for the gayzzoli. Or, at very least, the chemistry. So when you put our ladies with dudes they have zero chemistry with, it becomes even more glaringly obvious why this is the gayest, non-gay show on television. Time to trim the beards and let these women do what they do. And, of course, in my mind that is always each other.

Kisses,
Ms. Snarker

p.s. Also, when you make them all boy crazy lovesick whatever else it makes it really, really hard for me to Subtext Recap this shit. So, you know, stop it. Just more of this, please.

Well said, Dorothy. Totally agree with you. Who does the song in the video?

I was wondering how you were going to recap this one without re-writing the entire episode. There was exactly NO subtext in this one.

Yes! Like so...

Maybe it's time to watch a show with actual lesbian content? (There are some on US TV, aren't there?)

lisa said...

You're right, Jane. She doesn't want to SLEEP with you. Nope. Not at all.
Well, maybe. After. A good cuddle is always nice after.

Thank you for saying more succinctly than I ever could exactly how I too felt after watching this weeks episode. It was utterly boring! I can usually put aside the absurdity of the plot/story-line and deal with this show if it gives us what we tuned in for in the first place-the bickering and bantering and yes, the subtexty fun of Rizzoli & Isles interactions... when you take that away from us too, what we are left we is a show that is just not worth tuning in for.

You are my queen, and you speak the truth.

...it's not just their lesbian audience that thinks this either.

Lyn said...

It stunned me, too - this season seems to be different - so different when it comes to the characters (not just rizzles) that it seems forced in the episodes, uncreative and boring. Not even the clothes can make it enjoyable (even if the wardrobe departement seems to know what they are doing) - the show got slightly terrible - the writers got bad (clichée), or maybe just worse than before, regarding the plot. There is not much charm & beauty in this third season till now (which would get me otherwise enthousistic). I don't know.

There was some subtext when Jane said "I will not smell taste hear touch or see you to Maura.I stopped watching shortly after that because it blew chunks.

Fucking Janet Tamaro is to Rizzoli & Isles as Ilene Fucking Chaiken was to L Word. Fuck them both for getting rich on our loyalty and thanking us with shit.

Y'all are so focused on being disappointed with the beards that you missed the best part at the beginning when Jane says to Maura that she is in stage 5 of ignoring her, that she can't "Taste, touch, smell, see, or hear her..." Taste her!?! Hellooooo... I was all excited to read Dorothy's recap take on THAT. But much to my dismay, nada. That's almost worse than having to put up with the beards...almost.

Crumbs aren't enough.

this video was a nice reminder of how things used to be. :)

I was surprised that got missed too. To me that was a perfect example of forced pandering dialogue. No one would ever say that. I'm going to assume Dorothy ignored it on purpose for that very reason ;)

Come on it's a very bad, poorly written, silly tv show. In the beginning it was cute now, not so much.

Mucj ado about nothing....

Dot, I read your recap this week, it was sooo funny.

Thanks for that cute video. I see Maura's flirty dimples again. :) It is virtually true about the poorly manicured beards. If ya got have them, make them a house plant or something. (Suppose the milion and one morality moms have put pressure on the show to stop the gayzzoli cannoli?)

Who is the group, song on the video? I want it for my ipod.

egghead said...

P.S.
Anyway, the chemistry between those TWO is what the show needs to build upon, along with the zany sometimes serious cases they solve. I love all the supporting players too. I thought the beginning of the season was heaven. They are all mad (which connotes love) and then makeup. Be still my heart.

And I want more spooning, damnit!!

Word! Thank you for putting the frustration many of us feel into well-crafted words!

I am so unenthused about this season that I have yet to watch this last episode. And it's Saturday. No interest in a snively Jane nor a hornbot Maura. No interest in a mediocre (at best) crime show that deliberately cuts down on its one major asset: the chemistry between its leads.

This show has become beyond frustrating.

MAURA STUCK A PEN IN THAT HORNDOGS AIRWAY AND THE NEXT DAY HE HAD A F*#KING PLASTER OVER IT AS HE WALKED AROUND!!!! I will never ever ever get over this, like I know this show is stupid, but TOO FAR. SERIOUSLY?!? SERIOUSLY?!? I'm so mad I don't even care about how awful this de-gaying shizz they're doing to it is. The Asian lab tech keeps popping up, boys everywhere, it's like they tricked us because they told us it would all happen but then they waited a season to do it so we were calm and placated before they pressed that lemon so hard the seeds turned to dust! >:'(
