    It's precisely the lack of traditional stage-managed drama that makes early episodes of the show so fascinating.

    Cold Justice is about simple people in forgotten places, a far cry from the rich New York socialites and corporate villains of an entertainment like "Law & Order." Yet with real pain comes the promise of real closure.

    Cold Justice picks up considerably in its second episode and seems as if it might be a worthy addition to the genre.

    While some of those made-for-TV encounters feel a little stilted, they do tend to pull you along, wanting to see how the drama plays out.

    There isn’t a lot of drama.

    A fantastic behind-the-scenes look at the blood, sweat and tears involved in investigating a cold-case file, sometimes decades after the fact.A fantastic behind-the-scenes look at the blood, sweat and tears involved in investigating a cold-case file, sometimes decades after the fact. Some may be put off by the frequent lack of closure, but not every investigation can lead to an arrest and conviction. This is the sad reality of cold-cases.

    If you enjoyed the 90s Cold Case TV Show and want something a little more gritty and realistic, you will love this show.

They break down the cases and take every nuance and tiny detail to build such an amazing circumstantial case. They have really closed so many cases since their first case. Their dedication to the Law Enforcement world with their specific knowledge - prosecutorial and forensic, helps guide the detectives into getting such amazing results and closure for the families.

    They are a great addition into the real life drama/reality TV, because in their field, they help so many families get justice for their loved ones!
