    "Love Conquers Al" is the first episode of Cold Case I ever saw and it is the reason why I am a fan of the show. The acting and writing for this episode is very good and all of the actors, regulars and guests, do an excellent job in their parts. What also makes this episdoe stand out is the great music that is used from beginning to end. There are quite a few reasons why I enjoyed "Love Conquers Al" and I hope you will enjoy it too.moreless
  • A very interesting episode

    This was the first episode I ever saw of Cold Case. I thought it was really cool the way they flashed back to the past & I particularly liked the way they'd intertwine the actor portraying the person of the past with the actor portraying the person in the present form. It was sad that the young couple felt they needed to kill the victim in order to erase the boyfriend's infidelity but hey, stranger things have happened.



    (The music was great but "Who Can It Be Now?" by Men At Work didn't come out till the following year so it was a little off but you definitely got the early 80s feeling it was going for.)moreless

    so corny it was wonderful. after all the years, after separation, the murderer and his former love, get together again to atone for their sins. destiny formed a bond, which will never divided. normally i hate such stories, but this

    was so overpowering, that i had to admit, that deep inside

    me, i must be a woman.

    A petty crook who hopes to get a reduced sentence

    Sees his athlete girlfriend or supposedly girlfriend get killed and the original boyfriend is charged with the murder but did he really do it.

    The petty crook more and more keeps looking guilty as he waves to the cops a bunch of lies.

    Very guilty pleasure show and I love the show a lot!
