    Bummer! Like that show. At least let them go out with a full, 200 episode season... ;)

    Peace,
    Tom

    One of our favorites also. We'll miss it. (I was always irked about "NCIS" killing off Sasha Alexander's character after three seasons.)

    Certainly one of my favorites as well. I always felt bummed that they only had ten episodes per season.

    My wife is not a happy camper. It's one of her favorites.

    It's one of my faves as well. If nothing else just for the eye candy. :)

    This show ended for me sometime during the first season. It was almost a direct knock off of Crossing Jordan with some roles switched around. And the Mother .... That's probably what really killed it for me. That horrible, meddling Mother.

    This morning's paper had a brief article from AP about the show not being renewed after Season 7. It stated that there is new management at Turner Networks and new boss Kevin Reilly favors edgier fare. Sounds like an opportunity for Netflix to pick up another popular program!

    What's with these channels trying to have all their programs with the exact same look and feel (particularly edgier?) While I see the sense in building a brand to a degree, why cancel something that currently works? Sigh...

    Like the Netflix idea! :)

    Peace,
    Tom

    My guess is that "edgier" appeals more to the younger demographic that programmers are trying to attract. Old farts like me may watch some of those shows too, but more character-driven stuff like Longmire that some of us appreciate just doesn't resonate as much with the 18-49 crowd.

    Hey I like Longmire and I'm a member of the 18-49 crowd. At least for 5 more months. :D

    It's funny. when I turned 70 I thought I should vary my choices. So I tried, really tried, to watch scripted shows that appeal to the younger crowd.

    What i ran into was the theme "sex, drugs, rock & roll" (the 1970's variation on "wine, women, and song", a phrase from around 1800) not infrequently combined with poorly acted shallow characters.

    What actually resulted from my exploration is that I'm streaming more and more content which is not focused on appealing to the age 16-29 American male demo and a greater portion of which does not originate in the U.S.

    The end of "Rizzoli & Isles" doesn't mean I'll not watch TNT content. The upcoming new TNT series "Animal Kingdom" starring Ellen Barkin, age 61, and "Good Behavior" starring Michelle Dockery who played Lady Mary Crawley in "Downton Abbey" seem to have possibilities. I doubt there will be poor acting or shallow characters in either, though sex, drugs, rock & roll, could appear.

    What I'm waiting for is Time Warner Inc. subsidiary Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. to figure out how they are going to stream their content from TNT, TBS, etc. Right now the only source is Sling TV with commercials or buy some shows at Amazon Video.

    My Dad used have a saying "There's too much wine, women, and song around here. Looks like we're to have to cut back on the singin'."

    Anyone who wants to see more of Sasha Alexander should be watching Shameless...

    Wow, good looking woman at 42 for sure. I won't look at Dr Isles the same for the upcoming Rizzoli and Isles season. Glad I added the extended time to the boxing.
