Cold Case S01E04 – Churchgoing People Promo Updates

promo_003 promo_006

I think that ‘Churchgoing People’ really made it clear that Cold Case was not your typical cop show.

It didn’t end with the squad high-fiving and proclaiming ‘we got him’.  Yes, justice was done.  A long standing wrong was righted.  But you weren’t spoon-fed the classic ‘happily ever’ after ending.  The team used their detective skills to find the facts, but Lilly had to use her empathy as well as her powers of observation to get to the heart the case.

Anyway, this is the first in a new series of KM UK Gallery updates of promotional photos and stills from Cold Case.  This time we’re going by the original air date and adding 15 years.  I didn’t have anything new for episodes 1 to 3 so we start here.  There are many more to come.

Above you will see an enlarged image and a new one to the Gallery.

15 Years Old: Cold Case

CC_Titles_16On this date, the 28th of September, Cold Case premièred on CBS in the USA.  Of course, that particular 28th of that specific September was the one in 2003.

A whole 15 years ago.  If you’re not feeling old enough already then that fact will not help.  We must, however, mark the occasion so important in many people’s, including my own, our introduction to Kathryn Morris.  The show is instrumental in the existence of this very site.

We got to enjoy Kathryn and her colleagues across seven seasons of Cold Case but the powers that be didn’t know that in 2003.  As with any new show they put it out there hoping audiences will find it and connect with it sufficiently to return each week.  And they did, in their millions right to the end.

Sadly the show did come to a close in May 2010 after 156 episodes.

Happy Birthday Cold Case.

In the coming months I will be posting new and updated promotional and stills photographs from Cold Case episodes in time with their original airing dates.  Look out for the first set in a few weeks.

Japanese Cold Case Season 2 Due Soon

Cold_Case_Japan_Promo_photo_1600x1190It has been two years but the Kanagawa Prefectural Police’s First Investigative Division squad are returning to Japanese television screens in the autumn.

The WOWOW TV network is airing 10 new episodes of their version of Cold Case starting on the 13th of October.  WOWOW is the Japanese home of the original American version too.

Yo Yoshida returns as the Japanese Lilly Rush.  Her character is called Yuri Ishikawa and, as I noted previously, in a nice touch Yuri is Japanese for Lily.  The rest of the core cast looks to be the same as in season 1 too.

Read all the details on the WOWOW website HERE.

If you know of a localised version of Cold Case in your part of the world then please do let me know.

New US Channel Leads With Female Leads

starttv_logo

The beginning of September, in significant parts of the United States, sees the launch of a new television channel.

Start TV, by the Weigel Broadcasting Co., will be available on many CBS Television Studios local stations across the nation covering around 42% of households.

Many of these smaller channels have a general theme to hang the content on, often targeting a particular demographic.  Start TV’s focus is on procedural shows with strong female leads.  I think you can see where this is going.

The association with CBS continues with some of the content due to be carried.  CBS shows The Good Wife and Cold Case both get mentions in the launch press release.  The relevant section for us here at KM UK:

Cold Case starring Kathryn Morris as a lone female detective who finds her calling by unraveling and re-thinking previously unsolved, older crimes.

They are not limiting their output to the ‘eye network’ though, with other network’s programmes such as The Closer, Medium, Crossing Jordan, and Profiler. featuring initially.  Schedules are due to be follow a fixed pattern across all seven days of the week, so a show will be on at the same time each and every day.

See the Start TV website HERE.

Acht no! Has It Been That Long?

These anniversaries seem to come around so quickly these days.

Yet they are still a surprise and the ever increasing number is still a bit of a shock.  Was it really that long ago?

Here on KM UK we always try and post a quick reminder on key dates and the 2nd of May is one of those dates.

That fateful Sunday in 2010 was day the final ever two episodes of Cold Case aired.  It has now been gone for longer than it ran for.  The show ended on something of a hopeful note for Lilly and co. but there was ending as such.  No doubt the squad continued in some form after we stopped watching.  Gone but not forgotten.

We are still watching the actors continue their careers and you can read about them in our regular monthly catch-ups.
