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.

Wings Of Gold Comes Of Age

pwog_promo_006Pensacola: Wings Of Gold, the CBS network action series revolving around a team of elite soldiers, is 21 today.  Happy Birthday P:WOG!

The show débuted on the 15th of September 1997 and went on to have 3 seasons with a total of 66 episodes.  Kathryn was only the first of those annual runs as much of the cast was changed for season 2.

Last year’s celebratory post here on KM UK went down the route of the materials used to mark wedding anniversaries.  In the modern list 21 years is nickel or brass.  Nickel clearly has links to the US.  Throw the word ‘top’ in front of ‘brass’ and you’ve got a military hierarchy reference.  This stuff writes itself!

For more details on the series and Kathryn’s role in it, see that article from last year. and other P:WOG posts.

To mark this significant event I’ve added a load of new P:WOG content to the KM UK Gallery.  We’ve got promo stills and photos, various miscellaneous images (DVD covers, signed photo etc.), and a few small videos.  Check them all out in the Pensacola: Wings Of Gold section of the Gallery.

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – August 2018

tracie_thoms_001_430x180

July’s CCCC-up promised little due to the quiet summer months.  Despite that, I think we put together a reasonable amount of information.  August is also slim pickings for looking at the news of the Cold Case cast’s on-going careers.

Last time we mentioned her (almost) last so it is only fair that this month we let her go first… with The FirstJuly’s CCCC-up finished talking about a new drama series coming to the streaming service Hulu.  It is called The First and stars Sean Penn (Dead Man Walking) and Natascha McElhone (The Truman Show) and Melissa George (Hunted), and Tracie Thoms (Kat Miller in CC).  The 8 episode drama about the first manned (and womaned) mission to Mars is due to for launch all at once on the 14th of September (a Friday, in case you’re interested).  Previously I posted a link to a teaser trailer that had been out a week.  Now we have a proper trailer only a couple of days old.  See it HERE on YouTube.  Tracie features, very briefly, around 55 seconds in.  Expect to see Tracie in two episodes.

On that very same day in September the horror movie The Basement, which also sees Tracie in a small supporting role, gets its limited cinematic release.  There is a trailer but I’m not going to link to it (you don’t need to see it) and Tracie is not in it anyway.

As there is just a few days to go now there has been quite a lot of press activity regarding Mayans MC, the FX network drama spin-off from Sons Of Anarchy.  The new show which stars Danny Pino (Scotty Valens in CC)  starts next Tuesday, the 4th of September.  We’ve covered Mayans MC here on KM UK quite a lot already for those looking for a bit more info.

Let’s sneak in a quick mention of one of our less frequent fliers (because she sort of doesn’t fit these posts really): Veena Sud (producer & writer on CC).  It was back in April’s CCCC-up that we mentioned Veena was re-uniting with her The Killing star Mireille Enos for a new film called Between Earth And Sky.  It has been renamed to The Lie and has featured in a list of projects recognised for being gender balanced.  Women in Film, the Sundance Institute, and IMDbPro have formed a group called ReFrame to do just that.  Veena wrote and directed The Lie.

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.

Happy 5th Birthday Boys
