TNT’s Summer Lineup Will Unleash Your Inner Sleuth + Win a $100 Visa Gift Card!

Add some (crime) drama to your summer with TNT's lineup AND enter for your chance to win a $100 Visa card!

Female DetectiveAs an avid Law and Order: SVU and Criminal Minds fan, I was pleasantly surprised by TNT’s strong lineup of crime dramas. As part of my participation in an Armchair Detective program with TNT, I had the chance to catch the season premiere episodes of Major Crimes, King & Maxwell, Rizzoli & Isles, and Perception. Of course, I watched all four in a row, eating up the juicy plotlines and witty banter. 

Helmed by the smart and stylish Captain Sharon Raydor, Major Crimes started with a bang (literally) and ended with hard-earned justice. When standing up for once-homeless teenager Rusty Beck, Capt. Raydor certainly stood out as both a strong leader and team player. Major Crimes comes back for its second season with all new episodes on TNT starting on June 10th at 9/8c.

Meanwhile, King & Maxwell was a crime drama with a whole lot of charm. The dynamics between former Secret Service agents (and current private investigators) Sean King and Michelle Maxwell didn’t feel forced, which made watching especially pleasurable. King’s charisma and Maxwell’s kickass moves added a dose of charm to the murder-mystery pilot episode. The guy in the beaver suit also helped, but you’ll have to tune in on Monday, June 10th at 10/9c for details on that.

Another daring duo could be found in Rizzoli & Isles. Detective Jane Rizzoli and Dr. Maura Isles team up once again to bring the bad guys to justice. Rizzoli’s rule-bending combined with Dr. Isles smarts solves a mystery involving a murdered actor and a terrifying garage collapse. Though I missed out on the show’s first three seasons, I was able to follow the subplots with relative ease. Dr. Isles’ heated exchange with birth mother Dr. Hope Martin drew me into the storyline seamlessly. Rizzoli & Isles returns to TNT on Tuesday, June 25th at 9/8c.

Last on my list was Perception, which follows paranoid schizophrenic Dr. Daniel Pierce as he connects the dots and causes a bit of trouble along the way. There were a number of plot twists and turns in that one hour-long episode, so I can only imagine what the rest of the season will bring! You can check it out for yourself on Tuesday, June 25th at 10/9c.

  1. I'm already watch Rizzoli & Isles and like it alot. I'm also looking forward to seeing Major Crimes. Sounds like it's going to be really great.

  2. I love all the crime dramas. In fact, I have a hard time fitting all of them in and still make it to work every day. Favorites are Law & Order, Rizzoli & Isles and Major Crimes.

  3. I love the actor, Eric McCormack, and noticed that he is entering his second season of the show "Perception." That is exciting. I don't have TV, so I did not know he had a new show. May check it out online at some point!
