What I learned watching “Rizzoli and Isles”
Did you know that frakking pumps thousands of chemicals — I know, right? chemicals! — into the virgin earth, resulting in massive water pollution and, if the show is to be believed, the murders of concerned and goodly environmentalists who, in a selfless effort to save the planet (and at great personal risk, so deeply runs both their convictions and their obvious selfless goodliness), uncover charlatans on private land engaging in the act of earth rape and water rape and the audacious use of thousands of chemicals?
I know, right? Chemicals!
Thousands of them.
In the earth.
That’s why I watch that show. For the subtle lessons in social justice. And definitely not because I’m hoping Maura and Jane eventually go undercover together in a women’s prison, or are forced by some crazy plot necessity to shower together, naked, together, in a shower. With no curtains.
Just so’s you know.
