I cannot begin to express my admiration for the vision, talent and skill that went into the production of this episode.
This is my favorite non-emotionally-involving episode of Cold Case. Whoever arranged the sound score for this episode worked hand in glove with the film editor for the perfection that was the timing of this show. Others have talked about the blending of the movie soundtrack and the scenes. But, they also were very specific about what was happenening on the movie screen during scenes that were set in the movie theatre...utterly brilliant.
Then there's the direction. The flashbacks were directed in the exact cheesy style of Rocky Horror Picture Show, especially the actor who played Mike. It was without a doubt the absolutely best ever.
This episode ranks up in my top 5 favorite television episodes ever.
