    omigod, was that rizzoli scoping out isles chest? that was *not* subtext. nothing sub about it.

    I just know I’m going to have to start watching that damn show. I can’t watch any shows that will make me want to read fan fic!! Especially where I can’t count it on the reading challenge!

    Is it available on Netflix yet? I may have to cave…

      I watched the first few episodes and never got back to watching it. I read/still read Tess Gerritson’s series and other than the names and maybe a few other points, the series doesn’t really map to the books.

    Have you read any of the fics associated with it?

  4. MEC / Jul 16 2011 9:50 am

    Nope – I don’t associate the characters with the ones on TV and there isn’t even the slightest hint (even if you look really really hard) of subtext in the books. I love the characters in the book – but I just don’t see them getting together. Rizzoli is married to an FBI agent and Isles has a very messed up romantic life involving a priest. I’d probably find it hard to read fanfic that brings the characters together because I just don’t see them together and I don’t want to see them together. If I watched the show, maybe i’d read the fic. I have read a few Law and Order/SVU fics and had never really watched the show – enjoyed the fics quite a bit.

    You know … now that I think of it, the TV Show is kind of like legal fanfic, where the scriptwriters have taken the established characters (written by Gerritson) and then recreated them to meet their own ideas of who/what they are and bringing them together in a relationship and plots that are not in the originals.

    I do remember seeing a trailer for Season 2, where the two women are at a speed dating … I suspect they writers/network are doing their damnedest to play up the subtext factor.
