Goofs

Multiple cases are shown to have occurred involving juvenile killers. These cases would likely be adjudicated quickly and the defendant being briefly jailed or even released as such cases are difficult to try and mature adults can not be held in juvenile facilities. See more »

One of the worst
15 September 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

'Cold Case' is indeed in itself a very cold case. It has not produced any remotely exciting episodes since the first season. More often than not the obvious killer is the killer. Every episode basically has the same tiresome plot: A person is killed. The detectives interview a person that leads them to another person, whom leads them to another person, and so on and so forth. Eventually, the detectives have gone through everyone the victim has ever known, and now they discover that one or more is lying. So they question the supposed the liar, who in turn puts the blame on someone else, and so on and so forth. In the end the killer is caught, and the same tiresome montage is played, with switching back and forth between the present and the past, the victim waves goodbye to someone, and this of course is all in slow-motion. And of course accompanied by an acoustic indie song.
