  • After hitting the bottom with last episode, the only way is up. This is not a bad episode, although they could have done better. Ah, spoilers inside!!!!

    Not bad, the story is mostly good and has some interesting turns and twists, but...



    ...but I find hard to believe that the FBI didn't know who the hell the Russian mobster (levchenko?) was and the cold case unit discover that is that lady Boyca just asking a few questions to an ex-prostitute. I know that in cop shows the feds are idiots and viceversa, but... I don't know... the scriptwriters are pushing too far my credibility with this.



    And that Boyca would give up so easily her front... hmmmm... it seems that the motto for Cold Case Squad in the last episodes was "We Ask, People Answer, We Solve it". OK, the people involved in the case maybe feel pity with Lily and all her troubles so make her things easier, so she can go home early and have a melodramatic moment with her mommy, but I want to watch a detective series, not some soap opera with crimes thrown in.



    Anyway, this episode was an improvement.moreless
  • A rich girl who joined the suffragist movement is thrown over the balcony in her mansion. They find out it was an accident. She got pushed by her mother.

    A great episode showing what it was like in 1919. It really depicted how hard it was for women at that time. The actresses who play Frances and Phillipa are gorgeous! I like how they stand out makeup-wise against the other women of the period. The other women are powererd up and white while the two stars are more natural looking. It was a powerful episode. The actreses played it great. It is very cool how the girl who was 7 in 1919 was telling the story in present day. It was just another great episode of cold case!!moreless
  • A longshoreman discovers a container full of children (underaged girls being imported from Eastern Europe to be slave prostitutes) and determines to save one. The case is only from 2005, so the acion is almost cntinuous..but things have changed.moreless

    "Oh yes, it's been going on for over a century!" I've now been told. Here, in the United States. The well-meaning and endearing longshoreman loses his life in attemting to save the girl (but not to the killer you'd think), but after losing all hope in the goodness of people here he told her about, she is finally rescued. Some bad guys are rounded up, but the traffic, one supposes, goes on...



    Excellent show, as one would expect from writer Tom Pettit.moreless
  • Not good but not bad

    A great show but also like one reviewer says that

    It would had given you more clues as well as

    More twists and turns. But the acting saved the show as

    The team tries to find out a 2005 Russian mob killing.

    Lily again must deal with her estranged mother. You gotta

    Love Lily. In how she deals with things.
  • Lots of twists and turns, and well-written.

    8.0
    This episode had a lot of twists and turns and was very well-written because I didn't get lost even with all the twists and turns. The story was missing excitement. It was cleverly written but something was flat and overall just missing the excitement of finding the killer, and although it was a good show, it was kinda lacking in the excitement category, but it was absolutely well-written with one minute you thought the hero was the criminal on more than one occasion. The person you would typically consider more so an insignificant extra in the show turn out to be the leader of a underage prostitute ring and I never suspected them because she resided over a house that helped girls. So overall, the show lacked excitement, but it kept you involve because of the way it was written.moreless
