  • So good they made it twice...

    This was a really strong epsiode. It was so good, in fact, that they recycled it in season five as "Justice". Watch these two episodes-they're virtually identical.
  • only the second reviewer??

    The team reopens the 1999 "accidental" drowning of a military school swin coach when the team receives clues that suggest foul play was involved. I have to say that this episode is possibly one of the best episodes of both season 1 and the entire series, both plot and music-wise. The ending and beginning and ending songs were especially great. However, I'm not sure why they choose a 1994 song ("Machinehead") for a 1999 episode, but I then again they used a 1994 song ("Return to Innocence") as the ending song in "Sanctuary", a 1998 case. The ending song was a very haunting and beautful song: "Wise Up (It's Not Going To Stop)" and it fit well for the episode. The only thing I didn't get was "The Giants Are Coming/Returning". I know they mentioned its significance in a previous episode (Volunteers, I think?) but still. The Scotty-Elisa subplot was good though. You could see Scotty struggling with his relationship to Elisa, especially since she struggles with her problems (schizophrenia?). A truely great and classic "Cold Case" episode.

    This is why I watch the show and love it like I do. As an Army swim coach is murdered back in 1999. As it was ruled accidental but then it gets re-opened to a possible homicide. Meanwhile Scotty tries to find his girlfriend who is missing. Very good show and why again I watch!
