  • Not my favorite storyline.

    7.5
    Really doesn't seem to be a great storyline. As I usually like the storylines. In the show. But not on this time. Because it really was pretty boring. And that I didn't find the storyline to be entertaining. It talked about a roller skater from a rink that was dead. It isn't what it looks like. When a friend of hers, introduced her to the roller skating thing. But instead, we think that a DJ, who took an interest in her. Killed her and made him a scapegoat. But in fast, it was all an accident. Don't blame the actors or actresses, just not a good storyline.moreless

    A young roller skater was found dead and the case is now reopened. It turned out that she met another girl that got her into the older skate times where she met a DJ... that's who everyone thought had killed her. In fact, it was just an accident between her and one of her close friends. I didn't really like the story in this episode. I don't find roller skating interesting and I thought that it was predictable. However, there were still interesting guest characters in this episode and relatively interesting investigating. Overall, a good episode of Cold Case, but not close to one of their best.moreless
  • Lilly and the team reopen the case of a 15 year-old girl named Missy Gallavan. A wannabe roller disco queen who was found dead in a ravine. Elsewhere, Detective Miller struggles with her personal life.moreless

    This episode is mediocre. I was entertained by it, but there have been better episodes. As odd as it may seem, one of the things that I liked a lot about this episode was the songs played throughout. Music plays a big part in every episode of "Cold Case" as we all know and the producers of the show do a very good job at selecting the music. One negative thing to say about the episdoe was the scenes with Kat Miller going on a blind date Valens acting as Dr. Phil. There was no reason for that bad subplot.moreless
  • It was okay.

    I thought this case was interesting enough but nothing spectactular. You have the death of 15 year old Missy. Some of the people involved had opportunity but its proven that it was pretty much a simple accident. The pain of the decisions made by the people involved at the time changed them. Some for the better, some didn't change at all or continued down their already chosen path. The side aspect of the episode was Kat's blind date and for reasons that have peaked my curiousity she called Scotty. This could be interesting development. I loved all the 70s references they were amusing.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Scotty: (to Rick about staying in jail) Long drive, could take all night. See if we could find a nice big cell mate you can do the Loco-Motion with.
      Lilly: Who's the foxy fish now?

    • Scotty: You saw the guy?
      Dawn Wheeler: No, but I saw the van she was getting in.
      Lilly: In the park?
      Dawn Wheeler: No. Outside the Aurora Rink in Mayfair. It was one of those customized vans, had a picture painted on the side.
      Lilly: What kind of picture?
      Dawn Wheeler: Spaceship.
      Scotty: You see little green men too?

    • Stillman: We locate that other guy from the rink yet?
      Vera: Hugh Mastersen. Grew up in a rural neighborhood - I can't decide whether this kid was creepy or just plain sad. Pulled up his MySpace page: single man in his 40s, never married, still looking for that special connection.

    • Jeffries: So I go down to evidence to pick up Missy's nail clippings. Mr. Happy Meal behind the counter keeps stonewalling, finding reasons why I can't have it.
      Vera: Know that guy, looooves to talk.
      Jeffries: We go in circles for a hour. Finally, he admits the box holding them, get this, four rows back.
      Vera: Man, that's got to be ten, twelve feet?
      Jeffries: He's not going to waddle his fast-food self all that way. Afraid the Hamburglar might grab him.

    • Kat: (after the blind date) I'm not calling him. This was a one-shot deal. One, and done.
      Scotty: Ah, c'mon, Kat. You gotta get back in the game.
      Kat: Got no game, baby. Game over.
      Scotty: Shame. You're still a pretty good catch...
      Kat: Yeah?
      Scotty: Just sayin'. You deserve more.
      Kat: Damn straight.
      Scotty: (teasing) Lousy-ass cop, though.
      Kat: (thumps him on the shoulder) Take me home before I puke all over your car.
