Rizzoli & Isles

TNT Crime Drama Giveaway

Fan of crime dramas or TNT shows? This week’s giveaway is for you, my friend. We’ve got two fantastic TV shows on DVD ($50 value) to give to one lucky winner.

We’re all about TNT (Home of the Crime Drama!) on Reel Life With Jane this week. For another giveaway pegged to the brand new TNT show “King & Maxwell” starring Rebecca Romijn and Jon Tenney, head over to this post and enter to win a $100 Visa Gift Card.


Rizzoli & Isles1. RIZZOLI & ISLES, SEASON 3. I LOVE this show, because it takes the buddy cop genre and twists it into Extreme Girl Power. In season 3 of the TNT show, an explosive misstep (cop shoots medical examiner’s mob boss father!) drives a painful wedge between Boston’s finest crime-solving colleagues Jane (Angie Harmon) and Maura (Sasha Alexander). So the two must set aside their issues in order to keep on top of the city’s most heinous murder cases.

But analyzing corpses and tracking killers is child’s play compared to the complications that arise from both friends’ respective parental units: Angela falls for Jane’s new boss, Maura meets her biological mother, and Jane’s infant nephew is the son of either her brother or her father. Includes all 15 episodes of season 3.

This DVD will be released June 11, 2013; season four premieres June 25, 2013 on TNT.

Special Features: 

  • Crafting the Shifting Worlds of “Rizzoli & Isles”
  • Personnel Files
  • Team Players
  • The Detective and the Doctor
  • The Rizzoli Clan
  • Maura’s Journey
  • Gag Reel
  • Unaired Scenes

Major Crimes2. MAJOR CRIMES, SEASON 1. This TNT show picks up where “The Closer” left off. Literally. The detectives in the Los Angeles Police Department’s Major Crimes division are still reeling from the departure of Brenda Leigh Johnson and the realization that Captain Raydor (the fabulous Mary McDonnell) is now in charge. Unlike their previous chief, Raydor (more girl power!) is determined to lead the department with a more team-oriented approach, sharing the credit with the people with whom she works.

Raydor’s hardest job, however, will be gaining the full trust and confidence of her detectives, who aren’t quick to forget her long history of internal investigations targeting them and their previous boss. Awkward! Especially troublesome is Provenza (G.W. Bailey), who has a difficult time taking orders from someone he doesn’t think knows as much as he does. Includes all ten episodes of season one.

This DVD will be released June 11, 2013; season two premieres June 10, 2013.

Special Features: 

  • Crossing the Tape – Inside the Major Crimes Squad: Chat with star Mary McDonnell and other familiar faces from “Major Crimes” as the cast discusses life on the set — now and on “The Closer.”
  • Major Crimes – Major Challenge: Sit down with Creator/Writer and Executive Producer James Duff, Executive Producer Michael Robin and the cast as they discuss moving on from “The Closer” and widening the breadth of the show.
  • Raydor’s Rookie: Introducing Kearran Giovanni
  • A New Home: A Chat with Graham Patrick Martin
  • Gag Reel
  • Deleted Scenes

  1. OMG I love Major Crimes. I was an addict for The Closer, so all of the characters are my favorite. Best cop shows since NYPD Blue.

  2. By far, my favorite show is Major Crimes. The lead character, Sharon Raydor, is my all time favorite. She brings a sense of balance to the hectic Major Crimes division and does it with finesse.

  3. My favorite TNT show is Major Crimes & my favorite character is Sharon Raydor (duh!) – I’ve loved the character since her first appearance on The Closer & think her relationship with Rusty is really the heart of Major Crimes.

  4. Love Rizzoli & Isles! Love the chemistry between the two lead characters. I like the character of Jane Rizzoli played by Angie Harmon.

  5. […] Reel Life with Jane is running a contest that ends on the 9th of this month where you could win Season 3 of Rizzoli & Isles and Season 1 of Major Crimes. It’s pretty simple to enter, and, if you win, look at the cool swag! […]

  6. My favorite TNT show is Rizzoli & Isles and my favorite character is Jane Rizzoli. Angie Harmon brilliantly portrays Jane Rizzoli, a tough, no nonsense female cop in a male dominant field. Jane is a strong female lead character, while having moments of vulnerability. She’s real, and she’s believable.

  7. I love Rizzoli & Isles and I have to say that Maura is my favorite character. Her awkwardness and social disabilities make her more adorable and likable 😀

  8. I love love love Rizzoli and Isles. I’m Team Maura all the way. The lady has brains, style and she’s almost got the sense of humor thing down. I can’t wait for season 4 to start!

  9. I love Rizzoli & Isles! The way Jane’s family has taken in Maura and the entire group is just so sweet and funny 😀

  10. Rizzoli & Isles is my favorite TNT show! My favorite character, though it’s VERY hard to choose is, Dr. Isles.

  11. Rizzoli and Isles is simply the best! Dr. Maura Isles, Chief ME of Massachusetts is an amazingly well developed, quirky, and adorable character.

  12. I love Rizzoli & Isles..I find both a mix of thrill, friendship, love, fun and much more..the chemistry and friendship between the main characters (Jane & Maura) has an incredible power .. my favorite character is Maura Isles: super smart and beautiful, a genius, very curious, fond of novelty..we see her grow from the first episode onwards..I think it’s an incredible character and full of be reckoned with!

  13. My favorite show is Rizzoli and Isles. I love how the team is one big family. They support each other, make fun of each other and love each other. I love how Jane and Maura are such a great team despite being such opposites. They compliment each other so well. The show has a great mix of drama and comedy which makes each episode fun.

  14. My favorite show by far is Rizzoli & Isles, and my favorite character is Maura Isles. I love the interaction and relationship between Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles, and I can’t wait to see where season 4 takes us.

  15. My, TNT SHOW is, favorite Rizzoli and Isles. because this show had me from the first episode. and has drama, action, comedy and more, and my favorite character, for me all are favorites, but Jane and Maura are the characters that I identify more. And their friendship is very beautiful and true.
    and one more thing I’m from Brazil and here the DVD has not arrived yet, and my English is getting better just from watching the show.


    *******forgive some mistakes, English is not my native language and I’m using google translator, and sometimes he makes mistakes.*******

  16. Fan of quite a few on this network but my Favorite TNT show is Rizzoli & Isles because of the chemistry and banter not only between the two leads but among the whole cast. It keeps me coming back each week, thinking (obsessing) about it in between episodes and missing it terribly during hiatus. Also helps that it’s set in Boston 🙂 (yay for hometown!)
    Favorite character: Maura Isles because there is no one like her on tv and she’s multi dimensional with so much potential for character growth. Can’t wait to see what season 4 brings.

  17. It was Brenda from the Closer and another favorite was Leverage but now my favorite show on TNT is Rizzoli and Isles

  18. My favorite show on TNT is Rizzoli and Isles. I just love the dynamic between two strong female leads, you don’t see that much on TV, and I enjoy it. My favorite character is Maura, because she has shown me that being smart isn’t bad, no matter how you may get picked on for it.

  19. My favorite was The Closer and I loved Brenda Johnson. She was so smart and funny without having to try. I have started liking Major Crimes…it is much better than I thought it would be.

  20. My favorite TNT’ show is Rizzoli & Isles and my favorite character, not only on it but actually my favorite character ever, is Maura Isles. The amazing and brilliant medical examiner played by the most wonderful actress – Sasha Alexander.
    This character is the kind of person I would love to meet in real life and be friends with. I love Maura Isles not only because it’s played by my favorite actress and the person who inspires me the most, but because it presents the kind of person who’s close to perfection – not only because she has an amazing brain, she’s incredibly smart, but because of her huge and pure heart.

  21. Rizzoli & Isles is my fave TNT show and Maura Isles is my fave character. She is uber-smart and is a character that girls can look up to. She embodies the notion that women can be both beautiful AND successful in the scientific fields.

  22. Favorite show on TNT definitely has to be Major Crimes! My favorite character is Sharon Raydor, I like how she does things within the rules of the law and how she is tough. I love that we saw a different side of her with Rusty from what we saw from her in the Closer.

  23. My Favorite TNT show is MAJOR CRIMES! The majority of the 5X SAG nominated cast for Best Ensemble from The Closer has transitioned wonderfully to Major Crimes. The ensemble cast is my favorite!
    Provenza ~ the gruff senior Lt. is loyal to his team, but adorable with his failed dating attempts. Flynn – Provenza’s sidekick and delivers great one liners!
    Raydor ~ showing us layers of her complex by the book persona. Tao ~ the former med student turned detective and tech savvy talks with ease and matter of fact on all that fancy jargon! Sanchez ~ the detective that never smiles, yet smolders 😉 Taylor ~ back to being his hard ass self! (you kind of felt sorry for him last Season of Closer with no office). Buzz ~ the guy that is there behind the scenes recording the crimes area and treated like a member of MC. Sykes ~ military tough & sharp when needed yet eager to please and want to fit in with the guys. Rusty ~ the Philip Stroh witness who has found a home with Raydor & the squad. Fritz ~ yummy eye candy (oh and yes, he can act & direct too!) Morales ~ coroner with awesome snarky comments but really a softie. Kendall ~ coroner’s assistant who provides key facts about the body and some lighthearded moments too.

  24. I love Rizzoli & Isles! Love the relationship between them and how they are portrayed as strong and independent women. Maura is my favorite because she can be smart and sexy at the same time. Also because she is not afraid to be her awkward and quirky self even if she gets made fun of at times.

  25. My favorite TNT show is Rizzoli and Isles and my all time Favorite Character is Dr Maura Isles Sasha plays her with such warmth and humor

  26. My daughter and I both love Major Crimes and Rizzoli & Isles. Before that The Closer was a “can’t miss” in our house! Their characters and story lines are so good!

  27. I like Major Crimes the best, I think. Mary McDonnell and GW Bailey just play off each other the whole time as Raydor and Provenza. It’s funny, especially when Provenza gets ticked off. I think I’d say Raydor is my favorite, though, since it’s a nice change to see women in charge, rather than just men.

  28. I love Rizzoli and Isles. Both are great characters and story lines are entertaining.

  29. I really, REALLY loved Southland! Sad that it just recently ended. One other show I like that will be coming back soon for another season, is Franklin and Bash 🙂

  30. June 9th is my birthday & receiving DVD of Major Crimes S1 and Rizzoli & Isles would be the icing on the cake! TNT knows Drama ~ Major Crimes is my favorite & it is hard to chose one character because they all work off of each other. I do LOVE G.W. Bailey’s Provenza! Great lines and delivery and he has heart of gold with his work with The Sunshine Kids Foundation (kids with cancer).

  31. My all time favorite show is hands down Rizzoli & Isles. It’s entertaining on a whole different level. Of course the amazing Dr. Isles heels with that!

  32. My favorite TNT show is Major Crimes. I am so excited for the second season to begin. My favorite character is Captain Raydor. Love her interaction with Flynn and Provenza.

  33. Rizzoli & Isles and my favorite character is Jane, of course!
    Why? Has so many whys … because she is wonderful, dedicated in what you do, love what you do! It’s smart, clever, courageous, persistent, turrona, warmed, sarcastic (love!), affectionate, adorable and sometimes sweet.
    And one thing I love about her: She ends everything what starts!
    The World needs more cop like her.

  34. Big congrats to Dee Dee Roe, winner of the Major Crimes / Rizzoli & Isles DVD giveaway. I’ve emailed you for your mailing address. 🙂
