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 »

User Reviews

best TV show for years
14 August 2005 | by bjobreiSee all my reviews

This is brilliant ! In a time where "best shows"are simply physically exhausting to watch-this is a revelation. Each episode leaves you in deep thought-and you get insight in the feelings of both victim and criminal. And indeed others involved. Some wonderful touches, like "then and now" footage adds to the brilliance. I am still young myself (well, ok...31..) but I dislike the mtv-style of filming in many American series. Cold case gives you an opportunity to think for yourself, unlike an other popular show- where a hero with one facial expression saves the world from the bad guys over and over again. I will not name this show-seems I am the only one hating it:) But-cold case-yes, bravo. More of this please !
