Les dropkick Murphys

Fiers descendants d’irlandais et d’écossais émigrés à Boston, Dropkick Murphys brasse gaillardement son punk celtique depuis près de 15 ans. Adoubés par Shane Mc Gowan, chanteur des Pogues, le pape du genre, et lancés dans les affaires par Lars Frederiksen et Tim Armstrong de Rancid, les boys chantent la bière, la fête, le monde ouvrier, les difficultés d’insertions des ex-taulards et des camés, sur un punk d’abord franchement oï, puis de plus en plus rock’n’roll, renforcé de cornemuse et de mandoline.

Très actif dans la vie sociale et associative de South Boston, Dropkick Murphys est un groupe qui joint les actes à la parole. Des grands gaillards aux airs bourrus mais qui ont des cœurs gros comme des barriques de whisky.

la nouvelle série sur France 2 , son générique

Rizzoli & Isles.

The series itself is based on the novels by Tess Gerritsen. In fact, it was after I had seen a couple of episodes at my mom’s house that I ran across one of the novels in Walmart and couldn’t resist picking it up. The novels are a bit darker than the series but they’re still a great read. The backstory to the show pulls from the novel “The Surgeon” (which we glimpse in flashbacks in the pilot episode) and the pilot is based on the novel “The Apprentice”. It was actually a rather interesting way to start a show and I really enjoyed the feeling of being thrown in the middle of it.
The two lead actresses are ones that I’ve enjoyed in both Law & Order (Angie Harmon) and NCIS (Sasha Alexander). Much like the show Bones, there’s a good mix of comedy and drama in each episode. Even from the first episode I found myself caring about the supporting characters and wondering about how they’d all end up fitting in.
I’m not finished with the first season yet so I’m definitely curious to see what happens but I’m also planning on picking up the rest of the novels, even if they aren’t made into episodes. I can’t help it, it’s hard to resist a well done series!
If you’re not a crime drama fan, I’d say the series is probably not for you. If you’re like me and enjoy the ones like Bones and NCIS, then you might really enjoy this one. They’re about to start a second season on TNT and if you do happen to start watching, let me know what you think!
