We’re cutting it a bit fine this month!
A week after our CCCC-up for April 2013 the US TV network NBC announced that Law & Order: Special Victims Unit would be renewed for a 15th season. Danny Pino (Scotty Valens in Cold Case) will be continuing in his post-Cold Case role of Det. Nick Amaro. The order is a for a full 22 episode season. Last year the same thing happened and two more episodes were added later. The pick-up for L&O:SVU‘s 14th season was much in doubt with lead actress Mariska Hargitay and the studio playing chicken in a chicken-and-egg situation to see who jumped first. Without Mariska’s signature would the network agree to a new season? But unless there was the promise of a new season why would Mariska sign? That was sorted out but this time things were different. The show was renewed while negotiations continued with Mariska. On Monday (27th May 2013) it was announced that she would be returning. Good news for all her and the show’s many fans.

Prison Break, Cold Case-style.
Bones found just outside the walls of an old jail point to an inmate that tried to escape. Or do they? And is there is long standing deception at the heart of this 1968 case? That would be “no” and “yes”, obviously
Music is brought to the fore in this episode with the clever tying together of the case and the single artist used throughout the episode. The crime is set on the day (13th January 1968) that Johnny Cash recorded his live album At Fulsom Prison, performing in front of inmates at the jail. Half the tracks used in The House were in the set list of the concert.
Future Castle star Seamus Dever made one of his earlier TV appearances in this episode.
This, the latest entry in the KM UK Summer Of HD 2013 brings 259 Full HD (1080p) Lilly screencaps to the Gallery.
Prompted by a question raised by site regular Kathy we’ve delved back into the archives for a very timely update.
It was on this day (23rd May 2006) seven years ago that Kathryn attended the Academy Of Country Music Awards. The ACMAs are not to be confused with other country music awards with similar acronyms such as the Country Music Awards. What ever happened to the “western” part anyway? Don’t they do both types of music any more?
It looks like it was quite a full evening for Kathryn. It started with arriving in an American sub-compact… OK, that’s clearly a lie. It started many hours earlier with her getting ready for the event (as women are wont to do) and involved a ridiculously long, gold painted stretched limo. Like Kathryn needed such a “look at me” vehicle when she stepped out of the car looking like that! Yowza! Extra points if you can leave a comment naming the make of dress and monkey-logoed purse.
Getting out of a limo has a nasty habit of leading to a red carpet and sure enough it happened here. After that you can’t avoid having a portrait photo session, attending a music awards ceremony, going on stage to give an award and being photographed some more but this time with various products. Tough day. Do you think Kathryn was supposed to be putting on the clothes and walking off with them?
So, 26 new(ish) photos have now been added to the Gallery to help further illustrate the points made above. Ten in the arrivals section. One update (it’s bigger of course) to photo number 6 in the press room set. And, a bakers dozen (that’s 13) in the new Distinctive Assets At The ACMA sub-album.
Plus, we have a very, very short video of Kathryn presenting the Best Album award to… you’ll have to watch to find out
An abused wife brings in film footage from an old home video camera that possibly shows her husband committing a murder.
This leads Lilly and the squad to look back at a 1979 case in which no body was found. Was it murder? And is there more to the victim than first thought?
247 HD (720p) Lilly screencaps from the episode can now be found in the Gallery.
Happy Birthday to us! Happy Birthday to us! Happy Birthday to us!
It only feels like 365 days since we last posted the above photo
Yes, we’ve reached the 4 year milestone and it only took… errr… about 4 years
