Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The CSI influence was deeply ingrained in this CBS cop drama starring Kathryn Morris as Detective Lilly Rush. The only female member of the Philadelphia homicide squad, the gorgeous, courageous, and brilliant Lilly dedicated her life to reopening long-unsolved criminal cases, tracking down the original witnesses and utilizing the latest investigative technology to nail the well-hidden perps. The series was distinguished by weekly flashback sequences, showing those involved in the case at hand as they were "then" and "now." (This technique was generously lavished on the opening episode, which was clearly inspired by the Michael Skakel murder case). Also in the cast was John Finn as Lilly's boss and mentor, Lt. Tom Stillman. Cold Case debuted September 28, 2003.
