Sasha’s listing in the playbill for 24 Hour Plays Broadway 2013 (lol, Blasha: the Serbian-speaking astronaut assassin) and her One Line Bio. (as an aside, I’m judging you Jessica Bauman, I’m judging you! ;) )
Oh Chemistree, oh chemistree,
How lovely are your beakers.
You wish your chem lab was as cool as mine.
Because the BBC made this gif, I like to imagine that this is the answer to all BBC-related questions from now on.
How did Sherlock survive the Fall? DRAMATIC KANGAROO.
What will the Doctor find on the plains of Trenzalore? DRAMATIC KANGAROO.
And so on and so forth until the end of time…

A quantitative analysis of changes in the Jane/Maura dynamic over the 3 seasons of Rizzoli & Isles
All data obtained from episodes of Rizzoli & Isles
Possibility of a narrow margin of error exists (mostly manual or otherwise induced by distraction-due-to-Sasha)
Why this analysis and what questions does it answer:
Admit it - it’s always been there at the back of your mind. Has the physical time spent between these two characters/actresses really been reduced or is it just my shipper-heart? Have they really started putting pretty much everything in between the two of them (and not just adorable turtles and pups) to make sure that the sparks don’t fly that easily?
Well, at least we have some answers here:
1] The total time allotted to the two characters (together) didn’t scale from S1 to S2 (3 hrs/10 eps should have scaled to 4.5 hrs/15 eps). In fact it dropped further in S3.
2] Likewise, for the time spent on just Jane and Maura, the percentage has reduced conspicuously (not going into statistical significance). And if you are an optimist who prefers calling talking about loved-ones and extended family as ‘character development’, well, even then, overall, there has been a drop. Between the two of them, they spent 32% of the total time in S1 whereas it has been (16+7) = 23% and (14+11) =25% in Seasons 2 and 3 respectively.
3] As a side-note, most of the Jane/Maura time is now spent on the couch, in the kitchen or at work. The fairy that lets friends catch up outside work and have uninhibited fun has apparently disappeared.

This is, hands down with no exaggeration, one of the most inspiring and heartfelt collections of advice I have read.
That moment I find myself jealous of two fictional characters’ made-up Thanksgiving Day plans…. ;)
