Set in Philadelphia (my old stomping grounds), Cold Case is about a police detective solving old crimes.
It opens with ehr on the site of a new crime, one that looks far more interesting than the case that the episode is about. It’s hard to make an old crime something we care about. It’s even harder when you’re trying to push some bloated class-struggle plot into it. The solving of the crime was simply a procedural lacking in particularly interesting procedures.
No reason for me to return to CBS Sundays for this one.
