Start TV Starts CC On TV CC’s Stars Of CC

StartTV_My_Start_Story_part_2_011

The other week Start TV posted a couple of pages, with videos, about Kathryn and Tracie’s starts in the business that is show.  We covered it HERE.

Last week Start TV followed-up those two articles with a piece marking their ‘Investigation Week’, which includes Cold Case being broadcast from the beginning again today (29th July).

The initial focus of the newer feature is a collection of real-life investigators.  An FBI Special Agent, Chief Of Police, marksman, Canine Handler, a coroner, and Coast Guard.  As is the underlying theme of the whole TV channel, all the people being highlighted are women.

It continues with our two favourite ladies talking about what drew them to Cold Case, and Kathryn’s experience learning from Detective Tim Bass to inform her portrayal of Lilly Rush.

Read the full article HERE on the Start TV website.

Kathryn’s Start Story

StartTV_My_Start_Story_part_1_010

Sit down children, and then I’ll begin…

Remember the surprise selfies (selfi?) posted by Tracie back in March?  Well in case you don’t you can view that post HERE.  It was clear the photos had something to do with the new female-centric US television network Start TV, currently broadcasting Cold Case daily, and I hoped we would hear about it later.  That time has finally arrived.

Start TV has published Kathryn’s My Start Story article.  It details Kathryn’s early life performing in her family’s gospel group, The Morris Code, through her introduction to movies and getting the role of Lilly Rush in Cold Case.  There are quotes from Kathryn throughout and a couple of short video clips as companion items.

I urge you to read the full article HERE on the Start TV website.

Of course Tracie was there too and you can read her My Start Story HERE.

It wouldn’t be KM UK without some images and in this case we have some nice HD (720p) screencaps from the two video clips in the Gallery, and we have small versions of the videos for completeness.

Have a good weekend.

Cold Case S01E20 – Greed Promo Update

s01e20_promo_001s01e20_promo_002

This is an interesting follow-up to the previous outing of our Cold Case season 1 promo photo updates.  We’ve been looking back to the same date Cold Case episodes aired 15 years ago.

It’s another pair of couples images, but this time it is Lilly and ADA Kite (Josh Hopkins) ending the episode in a bar with their colleagues.  The show started with them meeting in Kite’s office with a witness in the 1985 murder of a stockbroker involved in a Ponzi scheme (basically a pyramid scheme where new investor’s money profits those that were there before them).

A notable guest star in this episode was T.J. Thyne (Bones), who the next year went on to be on the main actors in the behemoth that was Bones, with Emily Deschanel (Bones) and David Boreanaz (Bones).  2004 was real purple patch for T.J. with him appearing in over a dozen different TV shows, many some of the biggest of their era.

The two photos we’re adding this week are not great quality but they are now in the KM UK the Gallery for you to peruse.

As things stand these are the last promo photos I will be bringing to you from Cold Case season 1.  Come back later in the year for the next season’s set.  There are lots more.

Cold Case S01E19 – Late Returns Promo Update

s01e19_promo_001s01e19_promo_002

Despite appearances, the two rather awkward looking photos above are not from a couples counselling session for Lilly and Scotty.  The scene towards the end of this episode could have been the thing under discussion.  Away you go shippers!

The 4th of April 2004 was when ‘Late Returns’ first aired, which is why we are posting some new promo photos today.  It’s part of our ‘the same day plus 15 years’ series of Cold Case image updates.

‘Late Returns’, episode 19 of Cold Case season 1, revolved around the murder of a political campaign worker during the 1992 U.S. Presidential election.  Politics play a part in the rather unsatisfying conclusion to the story.  The powers that be step in protect the chief suspect.  The squad are less that happy.  Fortunately for us all the days of scandals such as the real one this story is based on are far in the past…

The full-sized version of the two images you see above are now in the KM UK the Gallery.  Where else would they be?

Cold Case S01E17 – The Lost Soul Of Herman Lester Promo Update

s01e17_promo_001As episode titles go ‘The Lost Soul Of Herman Lester’ is, well, not exactly the catchiest.  It doesn’t exactly trip of the tongue and gives you few clues as the nature of the plot.

We continue are look back at Cold Case season 1, posting new promo photos on the same day as the original episode transmission.  Albeit with 15 years added on.

Sunday the 14th of March 2004 was the date episode 17, ‘The Lost Soul Of Herman Lester’, first aired.  The plot was featured the 1987 murder of a promising high-school basketball player, the titular Herman Lester, as played by Mehcad Brooks.  This was one of Mehcad Brooks’ early TV roles.  He has since gone on to feature in Desperate Housewives, True Blood and most recently in Supergirl.

One of the features of the Cold Case flashbacks was to invoke the time period with the a soundtrack of music heard in that era.  The show was very good at getting to use significant songs by big artists, though it is often said that the rights issues it caused prevented a DVD release.  Seemingly, the deals were not done with that in mind, or they were deliberately excluded to cut costs.

‘The Lost Soul Of Herman Lester’ is no exception with a very strong line up of songs across the duration.  In the order they are heard in the episode the tracks are:

  • ‘Walk this Way” by Aerosmith with RUN-D.M.C.
  • ‘Word Up” by Cameo
  • ‘Big Time” by Peter Gabriel
  • ‘Niggaz Wanna Act” by Mase
  • ‘Push It” by Salt-N-Pepa
  • ‘Don’t Give Up’ by Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush
  • ‘Walk Like a Man’ by Bruce Springsteen

That’s the basis of a good compilation album right there.  Something for everyone into the popular music of the time.  For those of us of a certain age…  A real ‘Now That’s What I Call Music ’86-’87’.  Some really great songs.  Peter Gabriel’s album ‘So’ gets a double outing with ‘Big Time’ and ‘Don’t Give Up’.  Two very different songs are from a brilliant album.  If you want spend a worthwhile few minutes check out the various music videos on YouTube, some of which showcase the ground-breaking work of Aardman Animations (of Wallace & Gromitt fame).

With his obvious connections to Philadelphia it is no surprise that Bruce Springsteen turned up on Cold Case several times over the seasons.  Memorably, ‘8 Years’ (season 2, episode 11) was one of a handful of episodes that only featured a single artist.

Where was I, oh yes, images. The episode title might be long but, sadly, the number of new promo photos I have to bring to you today is not.  Just the one you can see above.  It is now in the the Gallery in it’s glorious full size.
