Never really understood why this show was cancelled..always missed.

One of the best police procedurals ever made. Solid acting, wonderful storytelling, very creative, some of the best music ever to be on television! I agree with many who have commented. I wish this show was never canceled!

avatar

Really good shows. One of the best crime shows

avatar

Great show CBS should never took it off.

I'm only on the first season but loving it so far. Maybe it's the oldies music that plays during flashbacks and endings (which I LOVE because I'm an old soul). Maybe it's the brilliance at which they show endings (an interplay between the past and present). It also leaves me feeling sad (not in a bad way) when I think about "what could have been". Lives lost so long ago, and how those involved feel about it decades later. Going to continue it.

Love this show, it's good although it's of 2003 I really recommend it. Very good show

I wasn´t much into cop shows at the time the show aired. My wife watched it and I went along. After a couple episodes it grew on me. I liked the past/present take which was kind of different to other police dramas. And I loved the period music. Sadly, the same music is the reason this show hasn`t made a DVD release yet. And there was something about Kathryn Morris. No - not the hair. I actually always liked that.

I hate that I can't get these series on DVD!!

I really enjoyed this show. The way they laid out the story made you feel for the characters and the victim's families. The music was always spot on as well. Not sure why it was canceled but it was a bad decision.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
