Question:  Does anyone know if Tess Gerritsen's Rizzoli and Isles series was made into the TV show from TNT that was run over this last summer?

I DVR'd it.  I have all 10 episodes on the DVR.  I have been reading to MUCH to watch them!!!  Since it is the same name, I am wondering if they turned Tess Gerritsen's books into this TV series.  Anyone know?

I am going to start 1 show and read all the credits and see if I can figure it out from the TV show.

If so, it will be like Kathy Reichs, and her books were turned into the TV show Bones, which I LOVE!!!!!  I think it is the sexual tension between Booth and Brennan!!!  But, since so far I have only read Deja Dead, the future books, which I have collected from here, at PBS, THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!, it looks like Brennan and Ryan have a similar 'pull' like Booth and Brennan!  I won't know till I read the ALL!  But, the The Bone Garden was SCREAMING MY NAME FIRST!!!

I have to admit - I used to be into ALL Christianity/Growth/Spritiual books.  But now, my tastes have changed just by reading Deja Dead!!!  Heck, ALL the TV showsm the GOOD ONES, seem to be based upon Mystery/Thrillers!!  I am SO into them!  Which is why I think my reading tastes have changed!  In "1" hour, you CANNOT squeeze EVERYTHING into a TV show, which goes to show you the books are ALWAYS SO MUCH BETTER THAN TV OR THE MOVIES!!!

Yes, the TV show is from the books by Tess Gerritsen, and the show is really good.  The cast of actors that they picked to play Jane and Maura are really good.  I really enjoyed the show and can't wait until it returns.  It was a big hit for TNT and it followed The Closer which is a GREAT show.  The episodes that you have taped should definitely be watched.  Enjoy!  Lynn

I agree with Laurie... the show is really good and definitely worth watching.  I'm hopeful it will be back for a second season.
