    Definitely continuing the trend towards strong, super-competent women in law enforcement roles, with one to check in (Karen Sisco).

    Kathryn Morris plays a Philly homicide detective who gets stuck with a 27 year old case. I liked her approach to investigation, which was kind of like Columbo's approach. Being a good-looking, non-threatening woman, she can coax witnesses to talk. The guilty party will soon learn about her tenacity, however. She keeps coming back with more questions, and eventually smokes out the guilty.

    I think Cold Case is a good addition to the Bruckenheimer police procedural empire.

    Yeah, I liked this one too. Kathryn Morris is really good in it, and even if the mystery wasn't the strongest, it was still a pretty enjoyable watch. Also, how much is shot on location in Philadelphia? It's got the same authentic look as Law & Order.

    I was kind of surprised at some of the content, though - I wasn't aware Standards & Practices were allowing "bitch", "asshole", and flipping the bird during the 8pm hour, on CBS no less.

    I am glad this one starts at 8pm, a good lead in to alias/sopranos type fair. I liked it.

    It was okay. I liked it, but the mystery was so damn obvious and so damn easy to solve that it seems unlikely that it wouldn't have been solved 27 years earlier.

    And did I miss something? What, exactly, did the maid who came forward contribute to the investigation? She said she saw a murder, but what information did she give that they didn't already have?

    I guess that this made it definitive that Jill was killed at the party, meaning there was no way for the influential family to deflect it to someone else or hide. But, yeah, I didn't see any reason why it wasn't solved in 1976.

    Was the episode based on the Skagal/Martha Moxley case? The similarites are uncanny with the names changed, of course.
