Colege friends Scott and Amy start an Internet company in a garage which is instantly successful. Investment banker Clinton Coleman puts up the money to take the company public. The IPO makes Scott and Amy millionaires--on paper. Scott buys a Ferrari and commits more than a million for a Super Bowl ad that fizzles, alarming Amy and threatening their business. When the young health-conscious woman is found dead of a heart attack at the oars of a canoe, the autopsy reveals potassium chloride in her blood. Rush, as part of the homicide team, investigates Scott, Coleman and even Coleman's protective secretary Geraldine; they uncover a cold case in the process. Written by jeaneva

Apparently, the cinematographer was trying to make us throw up.

A partner in a start-up company dies of a heart attack in her 20s. Because of a threatening diary entry gleaned off an old computer, there's significant reason to believe the death was NOT accidental.

I am sure that my watching this re-run of "Cold Case" was made much worse by watching it on a 58" TV, but the show seriously made my daughter and me nauseous! That's because the camera-work was insane. Let me explain. In many of the flashback scenes, the camera literally spun around and around and around the folks. While it was a VERY impressive special effect, it was distracting, annoying and barf-inducing! As for the rest of the show, it was a relatively weak episode--mostly because it relied on a few moments when folks divulged information they did NOT need to divulge and if they'd kept their mouths shut, the crime probably wouldn't have been solved. Not a terrible show but one to watch on a small TV and where you should avert your eyes during these scenes. As for the next show, "Honor", it manages to do even worse things with the camera--so also beware.
