Storyline

Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh is a forensic pathologist who lost her job with the Boston medical examiner's office because her passion for solving homicides frequently extended beyond the autopsy table. Years later, an old ally rescues Jordan from court-ordered anger management training in Los Angeles and rehires her to her former job in Boston. Jordan is still feisty and mercurial and a pain in the butt, but management tolerates her because she is good at her job. She and her father, a disgraced former Boston police detective, often solve crimes together by using a role-playing game they've played since Jordan's childhood. It goes: "You be the killer, and I'll be the victim and we'll figure out how this happened." The driving force in Jordan's life and career is the crime she took the longest time to solve -- her mother's murder. Written by A.B. Gilpin

I Love It. . .
28 November 2002 | by (Dallas, TX, USA) – See all my reviews

So I note some mixed reviews here . . .hey, everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. So I guess I'll add mine. The show is good. A nice mix of medical/crime drama and the personal lives of the characters. I've read where some said that the idea of the M.E. solving a crime is ridiculous. I don't see how that can be the case when coroners and M.E.s are often given the evidence to decipher it. Of course it's dramatized . . .IT'S A TV SHOW! If you want pure science and pure fact then flip over to A&E or Discovery and watch a documentary. Not saying that such shows are without merit; I enjoy them immensely. But if you want a good mix of forensics and crime story mixed up with the complexity of some admittedly very quirky characters (we all know some weird ones and you'll probably recognize the traits in a few of your own acquaintances), then check out Crossing Jordan. It's an hour well spent and much better than it's rival CSI: Miami I think.
