Cold Case Season 1

An old-school crime procedural drama dating back to the days of Without a Trace and CSI that I actually hadn’t tried out until now! Love the use of flashbacks and the way that characters merge with their younger-selves. The best thing about the show is its use of music ……. : β™« Boston – More […]

Criminal Minds: 12×22 – Red Light

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Derek Morgan brings the BAU a lead in the case against serial killer and escaped convict Mr. Scratch.

It […]
