Cagney & Lacey, Quincy M.E and C.S.I, all top quality crime capers in their own right. Mix them together, add in a dash of Xena: Warrior Princess and you’ve got the highest rated cable channel show debut in America — Rizzoli & Isles.TNT have aired two seasons in the US and season two premiers tonight on Alibi (Sky 132) at 10pm. Nestled in their listings amongst popular whodunnits such as Diagnosis Murder, Jonathan Creek and Inspector George Gently you’d be forgiven for skipping past yet another cop show in favour of a Come Dine With Me double bill. But Rizzoli & Isles is a cop show with a not so subtle difference.

@Ang_715 had a delightfully fun thing happen to her the other day that we thought everyone would get a smile to see. It would appear that Sasha Alexander pays closer attention to our profile pictures that we thought. @Ang_715 has had the same profile picture for quite some time (we believe since she joined Twitter; we hope she'll correct us if we're incorrect), and it seems Sasha noticed it the other day.
According to TVGuide.com and SeattlePI.Com:
[Lee Thompson Young] will play Kelvin, a Manhattan accountant who has become successful despite a troubled upbringing in the projects. Although viewed by many in his old neighborhood as a hero, when he becomes the victim of a violent armed robbery, the CSIs will have to dig into his new and old life for answers.

SOPA and PIPA instead target the platform -- that is, the site hosting the unauthorized content.The bills would give the Justice Department the power to go after foreign websites willfully committing or facilitating intellectual property theft -- "rogue" sites like The Pirate Bay. The government would be able to force U.S.-based companies, like Internet service providers, credit card companies and online advertisers, to cut off ties with those sites.[...]The legislation in question targets foreign companies whose primary purpose is to sell stolen or counterfeit goods -- but opponents say domestic companies could still be held liable for linking to their content. While sites like Reddit wouldn't have a legal duty to monitor their sites all the time, "you might have your pants sued off of you" if you don't, said Jayme White, staff director for the Senate Finance Subcommittee on international trade.[Please read the rest of the article here]

There’s a relatively new Fan Fiction Archive out there that’s being produced by the same people responsible for the L-Word.com. Below is a little bit about it. Go check it out when you’ve got a moment!
FemSlash, http://ffslash.fanfic.me, is a multifandom fanfic archive welcoming all fandoms, pairings, ’ships with a “slash” or lesbian focus.
Fandoms and pairings include Jane/Maura (Rizzoli & Isles) and Brittany/Santana (Glee) along with Grey’s Anatomy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Bad Girls. (FemSlash encourages stories based on The L Word to be posted at L-word.com. All other fandoms are welcomed.)
Using new fanfic archiving software, FemSlash “makes fanfic as easy as blogging”. Writers are can easily copy and paste video and photos into their stories. It’s easy to track and respond to comments.
Readers can “favorite” writers and/or stories and opt in or out of email notification for any writer or story.
FemSlash also features news stories and has a forum.
Maybe, but not forever, and she's certainly not leaving Rizzoli & Isles!
Set to air on February 7 on CBS, the special episode will take a look at what could have happened if different decisions were made by the characters over the years.Glasberg said Holly isn’t coming back for the episode, but he smiled and said to watch when a reporter asked if Sasha Alexander (who played Kate) would return for the special. (Check the rest here.)
Much of the installment takes place in large part at a diner, never before seen on NCIS, Gibbs gets his morning coffee - he goes there a lot, obviously. It will also look at existing relationships differently.Tony and Ziva will meet, for instance, but under circumstances that mark a drastic departure from how it went down years ago, as Kate (Sasha Alexander) has never left us in this alternate universe. (Check the rest here.)

According to Rogers' classifications, "Rizzoli & Isles" has all the window dressing of a show about systems. "Rizzoli & Isles is an hour long police drama that almost always begins with a murder. At first glance the format of the show seems to closely mirror 'Law & Order,' the platonic example of a show about systems," according to Rogers. But first glances can be deceiving.

If you follow the RizzlesGirls twitter account or the RizzlesCon twitter account, you'll recall a question a month or so ago that asked if anyone would be interested in buying a shirt that said something like, "Det. Sexy McBadass... Please excuse my swagger".
After some permissions from @diamondgirl774 and many answers of yes from people following the feed, the Rizzles Shirt Collection has happened! An amazing fan has put together four different shirts, two for Jane and two for Maura, that you can have for your very own. What's more, the proceeds go toward funding RizzlesCon, which we think is just wonderful. You can buy them here. Please be sure to read what she says about ordering and wait time.

From Jam! Showbiz:
“Now, to put some icing on the cake and be like, ‘Are they? Aren’t they? Is this the scene where it happens? Is this a dream sequence?’ You know what I mean? It’s fine, we love it.”
