Back to Gayzzoli

And they’re back. Yes, it seems hard to believe but we’re six seasons in and this totally gay, not gay pas de deux between one Det. Jane Rizzoli and one Dr. Maura Isles continues. But here we are, back for a new season. Ready for more gayzzoli. Eager for any eye sex. Still tickled by the Totally Gratuitous, Totally Gay Touching. I’ve always said I was in it for the fun of it all. While it would be nice if they eventually gave in to the undeniable chemistry, I have no illusions that this will happen anytime soon. So for me, it’s about molding the stories into what we really want to see. And, again, it’s another of those rare shows revolving entirely around female leads. Because – as silly as the crimes and stories may seem sometimes – there is just something so indisputably likeable about these women together. Now, if only they’d see it, too.



Plus, it seems like a pretty fun set. Also don’t forget to use #gayzzoli in your live tweets and look for the subtext recaps Thursday on AfterEllen.

Totally agree with you just in it for the fun of it - and for your recaps. Which is the best part of Gayzozoli's return :)

R&I's lesbian showrunner, Jan Nash, told TV Guide what we all knew, but didn't want to hear: No Rizzles - Ever. Since the interview went on line, Nash has said she was misquoted/misattributed and this phrase was cut: "...but that's not something that will be in the cards...".

I'm not surprised that Nash won't take the show where it logically should go: Jane and Maura in love. But I'm disappointed, especially with the timing of her tone-deaf, unnecessary declaration.

Wow. No mention of/anticipation for Proof premiering right after Rizzles' return?! Dorothy, I'm shocked!

Something that's been done on other shows is having the characters look into a mystery from decades earlier and have those earlier people played by those who play
the modern day characters. How hard would it be to do this with Rizzoli & Isles looking into a mystery involving a past lesbian couple? I'm thinking 1940s, Jane rocking the same fedora and skirt suit as Hayley Aywell in AGENT CARTER, and Maura as the smouldering femme fatale/girlfriend. Something like this would be a nice nod to the show's lesbian fans.

It seemed as though in a recent interview Harmon was denying that there was any chemistry with Alexander, talking instead about the other actors on the show. I guess she forgot that the show is called Rizzoli & Isles. But then again, it is less and less about Rizzoli & Isles these days. The recaps are so much better than the show.

I'm not sure why people are blaming Nash over the lack of Rizzles though. Just because she is the showrunner doesn't mean she has control over Rizzles. That's a network decision.

Thank you Dorothy for your wonderful recaps and imagination!

Maybe Nash is jealous of Angie's chemistry with Sasha. I mean her (Nash) seeming obsession with Angie and all...
