Rizzoli & Isles
Rizzoli & Isles is a TV series based on Tess Gerritsen's crime thriller series of books. And though evening television is littered with hard boiled cops and coroners dramas, this show distinguishes itself by not being quite as hard boiled. It does contain the usual hard edged dialog, autopsies, and intense stares, but the show moves back and forth between drama and comedy throughout. At first I found this annoying, because it hurt the intensity of the drama. But eventually it won me over, and I started enjoying it for what it is.

I should point out here that I don't watch TV series when they are first broadcast. I watch them on DVD after they are released. I've only watched the first DVD, and I don't know what the newer episodes are like. But I'm enjoying this one now as an alternative to Law & Order, CSI, etc.
Follow up. Well, after a few more episodes I'm not as thrilled as before. But I'm going to watch several more before deciding.
