Goofs

McGarrett informs Dr Southmore that his wife was killed with a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson pistol. Ballistics will tell you the caliber of the pistol, but not the brand. Not unless it is a highly unusual type of bullet, which the .38 fired by the Smith & Wesson and many others is not. See more »

Pretty average...
23 March 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The plot of "The Burning Ice" is pretty good--the story has originality and a few nice twists. However, in one way the episode was a disappointment to me--Jackie Cooper's guest appearance. I was happy see this ex-child star in the show and yet his performance seemed amazingly muted and a bit dull. How this could be is beyond me--as his character should have been much more interesting and less passive.

The film begins with a doctor and his emotionally estranged wife talking. It's obvious there is a lot of tension in the marriage and the husband (Cooper) is incredibly distant. Only moments later, we see the wife killed--and her jewelry is stolen. However, who did this is uncertain. Cooper tells the police that some stranger did this and at this point the authorities have no reason to think otherwise.

Later, when the police catch a man with the jewels from the dead woman, it appears as if they've got the assailant. At first, the man denies involvement but eventually he admits to the killing. However, it also turns out the man is dying from leukemia and it seems pretty doubtful that he committed the crime. Tune in to see what really happened.

Overall, as interesting plot but like I already said, the character played by Cooper is a bit dull.
