Rizzoli & Isles enough with the baby theme.

We used to like this show, and it is still good. However I hate it when a show turns into a single theme. Think Red John! Anyway, am I the only one who hopes that they stop with all the "sick because she is pregnant" cliches and comments?

I couldn't disagree more with you about the first two episodes of the season. I thought they were beautifully written to address the death of the actor who played Frost. Tonight's episode dealing with the funeral was especially moving to me. I find the baby side plot to be fun and keep the lightness that this show has always had.

I do not disagree with the funeral, etc. But they seemed to overdo the morning sickness/sensitive to odor stuff.

They're doing the same thing on Royal Pains. Lose the baby. And the brother.

Too many shows lose their original appeal by trying to build a backstory of 'relationships' involving the characters. But then maybe advertiser are more interested in appealing to the idiots that "believe" that sort of nonsense.

Unless a show had a baby or babies as part of its initial premise, the introduction of a new baby virtually always a bad idea.

Usually out-of-the-blue pregnancies on TV shows are the result of the actor's pregnancy. But that doesn't seem to be the case here, which makes the decision to drop in an out-of-the-blue pregnancy seem a little odd.

TNT has the same problem with Major Crimes. I hate child/teen characters in most dramas, especially cop shows.
