    I would love to see this series continue for a long time. I wish that each new season would include more than a half dozen or so episodes though. They no sooner start the new season and it’s over with a long wait for the next one.

    This show is brilliant and it cant stop now we know Jane is pregnant. Bring Cassy back and let Jane have some happiness. She is always worrying about everyone else around here and it is time she had some happiness herself. Keep it running guys,…

    The worst thing about tv is the best shows are taken off for boring reality shows that are mostly scripted. Keep Rizzoli and Isles on and I will watch for as long as it is on. The writers have created many interesting characters that make me want to see what happens next.

    I’ll keep watching it as long as they keep making it.I enjoy the fact that the characters are not stoic clich├ęs like some cop shows.They have real issues and good humor.The people seem more real than some shows.

    I love the show because I love the books written by Tess Gerritson who created these characters. The actresses do a very good job and I love all the family dynamics of Jane Rizzoli. It’s a funny in many respects, and I love the crime element as well, because I love crime dramas. I have to agree with one of the above comments on not making them lesbians, they are not in the books, and I am getting tired of all the PC of not hurting the gay community’s feelings. It’s not all about them, and this story line is not about lesbian cops. Sorry, read the books if you disagree. I hope it runs a good long time.

    I love this show and the chemistry between Angie and Sasha. I don’t wish for them to have a relationship that seems to be what some folks want. In saying that I think there is a need for new happenings in the show, and maybe Maura and Jane characters to be lucky in love (but not with each other). Just sayin!

    I would love to see it stay on as long as possible, this is my favorite show on TV, and always look forward to the next episode, Jane &Maura are great! So sad about losing Lee Young, he was great on the show.

    I would like to see it continue longer than NCIS has…
    I really enjoy the long lasting best friends female characters of Jane & Maura..
    And that they have each others backs and would do whatever they could for each other because they are best friends for life..(and not lesbian lovers, just best friends forever ) I mean come on people there is such a thing..stop trying to ruin a tv show that actually started with being normal and was excellent because it was normal and had strong female lead characters that became best friends and trusted and respected each other. I ask Janet Tamaro to keep it normal. I mean why because all of the gay & lesbian e-mails and chats do writers, producers have to write shows leaning to that direction just because you don’t want to offend them. I don’t want to offend them either but what about offending me because you lean the show there way.
    I think Angie Harmon & Sasha Alexander have a wonderful chemistry and have since day day one done a wonderful job playing best friend’s that would take care of each other & be there for each other. (I would like this fowarded to Janet Tamaro, Angie Harmon & Sasha Alexander.. I have enjoyed watching Angie &Sasha in anything I have seen them in.)
    Also all of the cast members make a wonderful team. My condolences on the death of Lee Thompson Young to Family, friends & co-workers it was very sad and I will miss his character.
    God Bless

    Just surprised it took this long. Nevertheless, it’s an excellent show, and I hope it’s around for a long time. Sasha and Angie have great chemistry, and it’s close to taking down Leverage as being the best show from the network. Still can’t believe they axed Leverage.
