  • Jordan is blatantly set up. Her reporter boyfriend has been killed and she is the only suspect. oh yeah, and the story he was writing is ignored by everyone else...but may just lead to the real killermoreless

    And this is why people stop watching shows...



    you know when writers have an idea about a quirky little show with a tight plot and near fixed set of seasonal variables? and then the writers get worried coz they've lasted two more years than ever expected and suddenly they lose all confidence in their own idea and try to change the show into a generic rip off?



    this is what this episode is. Jordan is blatantly set up. instead of being a coroner, half way decent girlfriend/friend/co-worker, she decides to become wunder-cop



    she starts running around causing trouble and getting herself into lots of stupid scenarios which all seem to reveal her guilt...

    yawn, the rest of the cast barely do anything but discuss how the rational and highly stable Jordan they know would never do such a thing...and how determinded they are to help her.



    Oh, and woody's in it...but we are only meant to see friend/cop woody not potential love interest woody otherwise it looks a bit sleazy.



    honestly, i used to love this show...moreless
  • How many times is Jordan going to get accused of murder?

    6.8
    And how many more times is the office going to be in trouble? This show is getting very very close to jumping the shark. Let's bring in yet another person to screw up the office and cause havoc. This show needs to end this season. No more Jordan, Garrett, and Bud.
  • as jd's murder investigation is on-going, jordan takes matters into her own hands and searches for clues in washington while the gang is doing their best from boston

    this was an awesome season premiere ep b/c the cliff hanger last season was so fantastic and they just pick up where they left off which is fabulous..i loved this ep b/c it had the same amount of drama as the season 5 finale..it was awesome and we get to see jordans character evolve even more and still be the same old jordan at the same time..i love the dedication of the team and how they do stick together..the new girl tho..i dont like her so much..spoiler..the pen thing was clever tho lol..and i was glad woody and lu broke up over this..unfortunately i didnt like lu too much in this ep..but the ep was awesome and when lu took the blame i liked her better and they solved the case and got jordan off free..so everyone is happy..yaymoreless
  • My first on Crossing Jordan

    8.0
    So, this is going to be my first review on this quite good show. I've never watch it in English, just randomly in the German version, so Jordan's original voice kinda irritated me, it's a lit higher over here.

    Anyway, I needed to download this episode, cause I could no longer wait - after season 5's cliffhanger I really needed to know what happened. Although it was fairly predictable that Jordan OF COURSE wasn't guilty, but someone set her up. But I enjoyed watching the others solving the case with her and breaking all imaginable rules for her. I like it when they all stick together - especially when Woody's on board. I feel a new romance arc for them coming, maybe they'll make it this time? Well, I don't know their complete story, but I'll be following it as soon as season 6 comes to Germany.moreless
  • Great, but not QUITE living up to my expectations, until the end, that is.

    9.3
    I don\'t know what I was expecting, but I was left saying \"So that was it?\" after the first 45 minutes.



    That said there were some WONDERFUL scenes. The staging and editing of the traditional game sequence was almost perfect. Each scenario was plausible, yet all were not quite on the money which in my book is a good thing. I would have liked to know what the argument between Jordan and JD was about, but I understand the symbolism of it and can appreciate why it remained a mystery. The lone gunman bothered me a little. It was almost TOO easy. There wasn\'t really any mystery at all. I felt a little ripped off by it. But once again I understand why and appreciate that the writers wanted to closure for this storyline (I wonder if its because the whole plot-line, which could have been amazing, was twisted so poorly that it sunk like the Titanic and they just wanted to put the whole thing in the past and call a Mulligan, but that\'s just MHO).



    Any and all misgivings I had were taken away in the last two minutes of the episode. When Jordan went to view the body I lost it! The picture-booth pictures were...perfect. You could almost picture them out and about, being silly and in love, stopping by a photo booth just for S&Gs and in the end she did the traditional \"sweetheart split\", giving him half and keeping the other. How perfect was that? It reminded my why I love this show in the first place. (I just wish we could have seen some of that chemistry between the LIVE JD and Jordan last season. I might have liked him better)moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Brooke Smith, who plays new character Dr. Kate Switzer, also has a recurring role as Dr. Erica Hahn on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy".

    • Goof: In the first shot of the Judge we are shown after he jumps from his office balcony, he is lying on the caved in police cruiser face down and slightly angled with his left leg bent upwards behind him missing his shoe. The next shot we see of him, he is still face down but now completely straight on top of the cruiser with his legs stretched out flat behind him, with both shoes on.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Dr. Switzer: Looks like you have a virus....Next time you're stealing confidential information on a case you've been barred from, and leaking it to your fugitive friend and AWOL boss, use a firewall.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Lu: You're kidding, right? You sure Pollack hadn't figured out who killed JFK?

      While talking to Woody and Nigel in the interrogation room after having arrested them, Lu sarcastically mentions JFK. She means John F. Kennedy, past president of the United States.
