* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Rizzoli is a thoroughly unlikable secondary character in the first book in the series, while Isles doesn't even exist, and she herself is a minor character in the second book. Jane's mother also completely ignores her while doting on her brother before doing a 180 into a MyBelovedSmother to Jane. In the pilot, (based on the first two books) Jane is a broken character, scarred, traumatized and having flashbacks a year after being kidnapped and tortured by a serial killer. And then he escapes from prison and does it again. But the show soon settles down to quirky VictimOfTheWeek plots.

''Rizzoli & Isles'' is a show on Creator/{{TNT}} set in UsefulNotes/{{Boston}} with two of the department's hardest working women cracking the city's most gruesome murders. These two friends are as different from one another as can be. Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) is a no-nonsense cop with an attitude and tomboy inclinations. Dr. Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) is a brilliant though eccentric medical examiner, much more feminine and mild than Jane. As odd of a pairing as they may be, Jane and Maura are close friends who are always there for one another and have each other's back.

** The books state that Jane is petite and fairly plain, to the point of having an irrational hatred of beautiful women. Angie Harmon, her actress, is a former model.

** There are the yoga scenes. Maura is in a skin-tight workout suit, while Jane is in yoga pants and a training bra, showing off abs that you could balance a quarter on (keep in mind that Angie Harmon has three kids).

* InformedAttribute: Jane describes herself as strong and athletic and Angie Harmon has a lithe, muscular frame. She may not look it at first glance, but the wiry kind counts.
