  • a dancing comp comes to a deadly end

    this is a great one. we go back to the 70s. there is a dance off. and the man is shot in the head. we go back to see who had killed him. at one point it looks like the father had killed him because they had words before he died. then they look at his girlfriend who was burned in the fire. at the end it was a one a be dancers who killed him trying to fix the dance comp by a former dancer. the best part is at the end when you see the cold case team dancing/ vase is dancing with the district attorney, the others are dancing at work its a great sent off...moreless
  • disco episode

    The team reopens a the 1978 case of disco that burnt down when the body of the final victim is discovered with a bullet hole in his head, indicted the fire may have been caused to cover up his murder.

    I really enjoyed this episode. You really got to know and sympathize with the victim, Benny/Benji. Also, the list of suspects and their reasons for wanting him dead where more realistic than other episodes: the jealous girlfriend, the wannabee (son of the disco owner), the father (who disliked his son from going against his Jewish-heritage). Plus, the final scene of Lilly dancing (with Kite) and pausing to watch the main victim and his girlfriend dancing was great.

    Two thumbs up.moreless
  • What struck me was what Stillman said to Jeffries about him hanging around the Disco scene in the 70's. Yet, you look at the club, there were only ethnic white people there.moreless

    I thought it was a good show about hypocrisy about father and son. Father was trying to get his son to follow the religious order but the son saw the bull of his father and his fellow dancers. You could see he had a religious dogma to his dance concerning his dedication while the dancers were on coke filled with rage. His father talked about Disco being a fad and that religion lasts forever but the son saw that you are dependent on outsiders for everything you do like reinforcing your beliefs. He wasn't fazed. He got the girl is what counts. Guys got jealous of him including his own followers. Sounds like a crucifiction.moreless
  • Disco era involving burning inferro!

    Construction workers find the school of a young jewish teen

    As there are, get this, not just one cold case but twenty-three of them! No you are not blind my friends! Twenty-three people were burned in a building as the team tries to find the culprit or culprits but also bring justice to the dead and to their families!
