What is it about Angie Harmon that makes you want to watch her ensure that justice is done? Is it the cheekbones? The pre-Brazilian-blowout hair? That she has that great voice and the same sort of angularity as a firearm? Whether she's playing a hard-as-nails assistant district attorney on "Law and Order" or a homicide detective on "Women's Murder Club," there's something about Harmon that undeniably captures the archetypal image of the tough but lovely enforcer. Her appeal was not enough to save ABC's "Women's Murder Club" but it might just make TNT's "Rizzoli & Isles," based on the books by Tess Gerritsen, a light, bright addition to the network's cadre of female cops.

Sasha Alexander had suspicions about her character from the start. But it wasn't until Maura Isles obsessed over a date's skin condition that Alexander got it: She was playing a geek. "She held his hand and said, 'You have very dry hands.' And she couldn't get it out of her head," recalls Alexander, whose Isles character is a medical examiner on TNT's "Rizzoli & Isles. " "He was so weirded out, he left dinner. That moment solidified it for me. That's when I realized she was a geek — she can't control herself around the things she knows so much about.

"All Over the Guy" is a romantic comedy of wit and substance that actor-writer Dan Bucatinsky and director Julie Davis have moved gracefully from stage to screen with a change of title and sexual orientation. Bucatinsky starred in his play "I Know You Are, but What Am I?" with Nicole Tocantins. In the screen version he's paired with Richard Ruccolo.
