Great to see the re-runs on Sky's Vibe Channel. Seeing it all again you realise just how "naughty" and determined Jordan's character actually is - forever pushing the boundaries to get to the truth despite her Team's & Woody's rising blood pressures. But you gotta love the way they stick together like family, especially when everything hits the fan - and you can always guarantee that's a moment never too far away.
You feel for the guys who fall hard for her: Woody, Pollock ... painful once they really put their hearts out there for her, ouch. Another reason why you have to keep watching the series - you wanna see how it all turns out for them all.
I watched almost all of the episodes of Crossing Jordan on Netflix! This was a show that I actually avoided watching the final episode because I knew that I was going to cry because this show always ended by pulling at the heart strings! I loved the actors/actresses in this show! They were all relatable. I wish this show would be picked up again by some tv station and have the same cast!! that would be amazing! GREAT SHOW!
I have a question. Does anyone have a list of episodes that directly tie into the story-line of Jordan's mothers murder? I am trying to re-watch all of that plot line but cannot find certain episodes. Thanks for all your help :)
There is nothing but mindless reality show garbage on tv anymore...Crossing Jordan had a great story line, excellent cast and left you wanting more every season. Loosing this show is equal to loosing the REAL music of the past. Nothing new, nothing interesting just more of the same unoriginal junk that has already been done.....
I don't know why they decided to stop this show I though do believe their decision to be a complete mistake. This show paved the way for shows such as: CSI, CSI Maimi, NCIS, etc. I just can't believe that they could remove this show with all the different things that still could have been done. Jordan's love affairs, Bug and his new girl... I believe that it was a true mistake but, if they wanted to help end some curiosity of what happens perhaps they could produce a movie to end it all. I think that would at least get me and everyone else who watched the show, off the backs of whoever took the show off the air.
I loved this episode! The way Nigel interacted with that vampiress in the club was brilliant! Alastiar Dark was mysterious and alluring, but I loved the way that Woody broke through the demonic shell to find the normal person underneath. Woody seems apprehensive at first, but over time adjusts to the idea. Even though I watched the entire episode, I couldn't help but focus only on the parts that have Nigel in them. When he said "B Positive, Darilng" I cracked up, but then became contemplative about whether that was his real blood type or not. Nigel is such an intriguing, sometimes nutty character, but he has a soft side which shows with Lilly. He's my favorite character on the show, and I wish that they had done an episode just about him.
i love it..i watched it years ago when it was first on and i dont know what happened but i know i stopped watching it for some reason..i think it was on too late or something..but now that its on at a decent time i love it...i watch it like all the time..jordan is so awesome..she is so temperamental and everything but she gets things done and you got to admire her method..i just dont like how she pushes people away..thats the only thing..i love it tho..the cases are always amazing and they finally got some romance things in a little later which totally rock..loved it so much
From season 3 on I never missed an episode, this show was the reason I purchased a dvd recorder :) so proudly I have every episode on dvd with my own menu setups. Easily every episode, or at least every other episode could have been described as a series classic. Its not that each show was better than the next, it was that each show was just as great as the previous. The twists and turns were classic, and this show made it possible for Women to have the lead in dramas, made it possible for shows like Bones, Medium, Veronica Mars and Ghost Whisperer to exist. Sadly it doesn't get the recognition for all it did, and the ability for the writing staff to keep such a major plot alive for so long without making the fans feel they'd forgotten about it was nothing short of spectacular. The writers have my highest praise.
This show is about a tough as nails M.E. Jordan Cavanaugh who proves time and time again that she can hang with the big boys. Dr. Macy is in charge of keeping her in check no mattern where her exploits take her.
This show shows the other side of murder investigations the side that the M.E.'s office handles and how the M.E.s can be just as much a part of solving the crime as the detectives assigned to the case. Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh is a loose cannon M.E. who together with her constant companion Detective Woody Hoyt solves all the impossible cases she is like House with Estrogen. The show also has a romantic side that leaves you left wondering if Jordan and Wooody will ever finally get to be together. All of the team members in the M.E.'s office have a job and Dr. Macy has by far the toughest job of all keeping Jordan in line. The show leaves you with the burning question who killed Jordan's mom?
This show was a good show, I only started watching it about 3 months ago but from what I saw I really like it and it holds my attention, not many shows like that. Jordan is the best one. I don't see many of them but she is very connected to her job, she wont do anything else till its done, and it reminds me of me! I'm like that but she sticks to it more then me. She is devoted to her Job and what's a shame is that from what I saw she let it ruin good relationships with men, that not like me. I haven't seen the end of it yet but im sure I will soon. Give this show a chance!
I can't believe you took Crossing Jordan off the air. That was one of the best shows on TV. My Mother and I are very dissapointed in the network. Maybe before you start canceling shows, because your not making millions at it, you should find out what the viewers think!!!!! All the stupid reality shows don't even come close to shows like Crossing Jordan, Law & Order Criminal Intent, CSI, CSI Miami, CSI New York, Bionic Woman, Law & Order SVU- those are some quality shows with excellant story lines. Its a shame you all are to naive to figure that out.
Crossing Jordan is my favorite TV show. I never knew I would become so addicted by watching just one episode but now I am one of many dedicated fans of the legacy which is Crossing Jordan. There was something about Crossing Jordan that I can't describe but I loved. It was brilliantly done and deserved a proper ending that tied up all the loose ends. Crash was a good episode, but CJ could have gone for at least another season. I will never understand why NBC canceled Jordan but I will have to live with their decision. I will always miss Crossing Jordan. Crossing Jordan Forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I cant believe another good show gone without a proper conclusion. The way the last episode ended I thought for sure it would be back for another season. What happened? I dont really know who decides whether shows go or stay, but this has happened alot lately. this was an absoulutley fantastic show. If it had to be cancelled for whatever reason,is there at least a way to bring it back for one more round up finale. Tie up loose ends. Does bug and lily get married? are jordan and woody getting together for good this time? So much left unsaid.
I never thought I'd be fond of a show like I was while watching CJ... This show is just wonderful. The stories were written logically, while the characters took us along with them, in the Boston ME Office...
I wish, a bit more every day, that the show's not cancelled. I wish we'd be able to see it back, and more certainly since I'm sure fans WILL be there if it does happens. This is just a dream now, while the show keeps giving me the most satisfaction sensation when I see it, again and again, never bored :)
I'm sure I'm not the only one to think that, all around the world there are fans who just wait to see their ME gang again... We need CJ back!! There are so much shows these days, and none of them gives me the thrill CJ gave me. Just wonder why. The characters are amazing, the relationship too. More than that, it's nearly like they have a particular relationship with us (to take an example: the Nigel blog has been made real by the production and it kept us even more in touch with the CJ world...)
I miss the show, I wish there could be a 7th season...
I'm not sure I made myself clear here... I'm sorry if I didn't, and if I made any mistakes ;)
As far as "bringing back" Crossing Jordan; Not gonna happen. Not on NBC or any other "TV" network. It is not coming back to television. (Other than re-runs.) No question.
But, no worries: It is not over!! A great team of fan-fiction writers picked up where the series ended on TV. These talented women are going to give the series the finale it deserved. Their virtual season is going to be 31 episodes long. The first episode, "Hold That Thought" premiered Sunday, September 30, 2007. This virtual season 7 (VS7) is hosted in the crossingjordanencyclopedia.com web site. You can catch each episode every Sunday until April 27, 2008. Each will remain available for viewing anytime in the crossingjordanencyclopedia.com site after each of the Sunday's episode's air date. The premiere picked up after the rescue from the mountainside. It was/is fabulously written, presented with graphics and music. It was as if you are watching it on TV.
VS7 is getting a lot of attention already, just days after the premiere. You can find it already added to the Wikipedia.com/Crossing Jordan site. Other articles are being found in Canadian news as well as various media here in the States. Please don't worry anymore. We, the fans, are being taken care of by VS7.
Please check it out. You will be so glad that you did.
Jill Hennessey's portrayal of Jordan was so real and intense. I was hoping to see her resolve her issues and develop a real relationship with Woody or someone. To end it now without resolving any of those issues is sad. I hope the netword will reconsider and bring it back. I hope the characters have not all relocated to other jobs by now. I'm also curious as to why this series has not been released on DVD. I have sent several emails to NBC inquiring about this with no response. Maybe someone who knows will respond to this review. All of the characters on the show, especially Bug and Nigel, made watching the show so entertaining. I hope to see more of the actors in another series if this one is finally kaput.
I started to watch this show about a year ago.. and i found it very well-done. I like all forencics shows, but this is my favourite one because it has something more than all others. In this show there are a lot of romance relationship: between Woody and Jordan, Lily and bug.. just to name a few.. I think this kind of relationships between the carachters made the show a looooot more interesting. it makes you wait for the next episode just to see if there are some news.
by the way, there are a good actors and(expecially O'Connell!!), good stories too.. everything's great..
Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh is a sexy, smart and fearless medical examiner. Her habit of going way beyond the call of duty to investigate crimes gets her in trouble with authorities but gets her great respect from the victim's family.
Crossing Jordan is medical investigation crime drama.
Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh is a sexy, smart and fearless medical examiner that is working under the guidance of Dr. Garret Macy. Her unorthodox methods constantly test her professional and personal relationship with Detective "Woody" Hoyt, the coroners rely on to put in the legwork to hunt down the perpetrators of the crimes they investigate. Her habit of going way beyond the call of duty to investigate crimes gets her always in trouble with authorities but gets her great respect from the victim's family.
The great thing about the show is the team interaction. The unusual way of Jordan to investigate a crime brings a very dramatic and personal touch to the show. You always wonder what she's up to do next and in what kind of trouble she is getting into this time. The other great thing about the show are the relationships. It's so much fun to watch the team's interaction and their personal feelings. They bring so much passion into solving a crime that they often end up struggling with their personal view's and their professional analysis.
I watched it from the beginning and was totally caught up with that show. Unfortunately NBC decided to kill the show which makes me very sad because I think that there aren't enough crime show's that bring their personal feelings into the crime solving process. Hopefully NBC will release a DVD collection soon so we can watch the episodes again and again.
Crossing Jordan is one of the best shows on television!! The connection with the characters along with their individual personalities really makes the show unique, interesting, and fun. The constant changing love/hate relationships also keep the viewer attached to the screen. This is absolutely one of my favorite shows, right up there with Psych, Monk, Burnt Notice, House, CSI and Law & Order. This show needs to stay!! Enough already with the reality shows. We want more Crossing Jordan.
This show is amazing; the script, the actors, the dimensions, the art directing, the timing, the locations, the emotion... everything. I simply cannot fault this show. When a program impacts you so incredibley that you almost feel inspired by it, you know it's definitely a hit. Not only does it bring a consistent string of drama, humor, emotion, humility, suspense and impemding punctuality, it almost feels real, as though it's happening in your general life. In reality, I think it's the executive producers, the script writers and the (strangely!) the wardrobe department that bring the combintion of rehearsability and realism to the camera, projecting a staged yet accurate perception of life to our TV screens. Should be made into a motion movie! And then add a sequel...
Many were glad to see the reemergence of Jill Henessy of Law and Order fame. She did not disappoint with the strong and highly flawed character of Jordan Cavenaugh. Flanked by a great supporting cast Crossing Jordan was breath of fresh air and only those
Many were glad to see the reemergence of Jill Henessy of Law and Order fame. She did not disappoint with the strong and highly flawed character of Jordan Cavenaugh. Flanked by a great supporting cast Crossing Jordan was breath of fresh air and only those who never gave the show a chance. Dismissed it with CSI or just another cop show labels. The show started strong with Jill in pursuit of the truth about her mother death. During this time period she became closer to her father and acted out the signature crime scene walk throughs. In which her and her dad would alternate between victim and criminal. The show lost it's way toward the end with some meandering story lines and focus on inter-office love affairs. Although despite a change in direction the show was still fun to watch pretty much every week. Jordan and her team stepped out of their roles as morgue attendants and became crime fighters. A great role with Jill being a strong independent Heroine. The show ending with everyone coming to terms with their years together ready to face the future as it began. Hopefully a dvd will come out so more can experience this great show.
the first few seasons were so much better, and I believe the interaction between Jordan and her father was the best. Ken Howard added to Jordan, they complimented each other. Now it seems as though she is going nowhere and has no one. I don't necessarily think Ken Howard has to be in every show but he does add to Jordan's character. He was a essential part of the show. I find I don't have to see it every week anymore, because it is more about Woody and the silliness that goes on there. The story line between Woody and Jordan does not even make any sense and you can't keep up with it, one time it's there and the next you are wondering what happened and trying to figure out if you missed something along the way. The one thing I miss the most is Ken Howard on the show, he gave Jordan a base.
Another message to "The Parents Television Council". RE: Crossing Jordan When I started writing this column, it wasn’t to be an anti "Parents Television Council" forum, but as I said in my Pre-ramble "I live in Hollywood, California and am tired of members of my community being described as amoral and trying to undermine the fabric of the American family". In fact I sincerely hope that some day we will find ourselves on the same side. In your mission statement you state, "The PTC's primary mission is to promote and restore responsibility and decency to the entertainment industry in answer to America's demand for positive, family-oriented television programming. The PTC does this by fostering changes in TV programming to make the early hours of prime time family-friendly and suitable for viewers of all ages. We serve as the conscience of the entertainment industry and corporate advertisers who sponsor broadcast content." FAQs About the Parents Television Council. In my opinion, your intentions are noble, but your execution is flawed.
A few weeks ago I was on the Parents Television Council web site researching for another article and I saw that an episode of the medical drama "Crossing Jordan" titled "Murder in the Rue Morge" was voted the "Worst TV Show of the Week". Crossing Jordan - Worst Family TV Shows of the Week. I had seen that episode and enjoyed it. I had to read further.
Aubree Bowling mentions, on your site, the name of the show, the episode title, the date the episode aired (January 9), the network the show aired on (NBC) and even some of the stars. What was not mentioned was it’s TV rating (TV-14) or it’s time slot (10pm-9pm central) not "the early hours of prime time" that’s mentioned in your mission statement. If you look at the shows listings on the NBC web site NBC.com > > Episode Guide you will see the show's ratings, it's time slot and a synopsis that gives enough detail on the episode with out revealing the mystery that is playing out. In my opinion, parents were sufficiently warned as to what they were about to see. If you are a parent who lets your small child see this show (on a "School Night"), then shame on you. In my opinion, the PTC won’t admonish parents for watching inappropriate programs because that could cause them to loose members and support.
Aubree Bowling also wrote, "But to involve innocent child actors in the dramatic process not only creates an extra-disturbing episode; it also can negatively affect the young actors and actresses." I didn't know that the PTC was also a child actor advocacy group. I did not see any mention of the show on the "A Minor Consideration" web site A Minor Consideration Website. Many times when you see children in "an extra-disturbing episode" it's really a baby faced adult (kind of like the cops on "21 Jump Street"). Casting breakdowns will read, "18 to play younger". Also looking out for the child's interest on the set are Social Workers, Network Standards and Practices Representatives, Studio Teachers (The studio teacher may refuse to allow the engagement of a minor on a set or location and may remove the minor therefrom, if in the studio teacher's judgment, conditions are such as to present a danger to the health, safety and morals of the minor.) SAG 24/7: Screen Actors Guild - YoungPerformersDB and the child's parents.
In my opinion there are bigger threats to children than a TV show. The Internet for example exposes children to imagery that they would never see even on cable. Sexual predators use the Internet to prey on children as depicted in many TV crime dramas. NBC (the network that brings you Crossing Jordan) does a series of public service announcements "The More You Know" where they discuss a variety of issues including Internet safety NBC.com > The More You Know In my opinion the PTC does want to address Internet related issues because that may force parents to confess their computer illiteracy. The same way parents have to admit that their kids mastered the V chip before they could. CHILD OF TELEVISION: "V" is for Chip. That admission could cause them to loose members and support.
In my opinion the PTC would rather ride the wave of a popular TV show thus being able to condemn the show while hitting the talk show circuit. I find this behavior similar to a serial killer that goes after celebrities in order to take their fame. This whorish behavior is no better than someone who is willing to eat an animal part that the butcher would normally throw out, just to be on TV. In my opinion the Parents Television Council lacks the moral high ground to judge people who work in television. On the bright side, being The Parents Television Council’s "Worst TV Show of the Week" may be the new "Banned in Boston", and be the best free publicity for the show.
