Boring. As. Fuck.
Limiting Sasha’s screentime, for whatever reason, is a poor choice by the producers. If they adjusted the script and the shooting schedule because the NEXT episode(s) required more days on-set for Sasha, then someone from the show should tweet about it.
Otherwise, the noticeable absence of a TITLE CHARACTER looks really strange.
This so much! I totally love the fact that Maura had to go to a Medical Examiner’s Convention (let’s be real and awesome), but for the entire episode? That was a tad too much. It’ll be interesting to see how much of Jane we get to see when she ends up in the hospital after 5x09. I think it’ll be a reasonable measure of how the show treats its two title characters.
The show became Rizzoli AND ISLES from Rizzoli for a reason. It’s the chemistry and the friendship that has made the difference. If it was just Rizzoli, I wouldn’t have given it a damn. Even if it was just Isles (with some random man or even a team), I don’t think I would have cared as much. But it’s Rizzoli & Isles, so you better make that AND count!
Giving up beef will reduce carbon footprint more than cars
Study shows red meat dwarfs others for environmental impact, using 28 times more land and 11 times water for pork or chicken
by Damian Carrington
Beef’s environmental impact dwarfs that of other meat including chicken and pork, new research reveals, with one expert saying that eating less red meat would be a better way for people to cut carbon emissions than giving up their cars.
The heavy impact on the environment of meat production was known but the research shows a new scale and scope of damage, particularly for beef. The popular red meat requires 28 times more land to produce than pork or chicken, 11 times more water and results in five times more climate-warming emissions. When compared to staples like potatoes, wheat, and rice, the impact of beef per calorie is even more extreme, requiring 160 times more land and producing 11 times more greenhouse gases…

R&I 5x06: Maura & Jane’s vast knowledge of each other’s best assets.
Headcanon: One day Maura and Jane are about to walk in the crime lab but stop in the doorway. Susie is kneeling with her back to the women. Her arms are propped up on a table and shs’s playing with her Jane and Maura figurines.
"Did you gt those test results, Maura?" Susie says with a deep voice, imitating Jane.
"Oh yes detective!" Answers plastic Maura.
Jane and Maura silently watch in fascination until the point where Susie finally just pushes the two figures together to make them plastic kiss.
Jane and Maura slowly back out and act like nothing happened until the next day when Jane comes down to the morgue. She makes sure Susieis in earshot before saying, “Did you get those test results, Maura?” She looks over at Susie and winks before Maura responds, “Oh yes detective!”
