    The felt that the premise of this show had great promise until I saw the show and realized just how lazy it is. An ex-prosecutor and an ex-CSI type band together to solve cold cases. This could work if that was really happening. In one of the two shows I watched before quitting we had a murder case with known suspects but no prosecutable evidence.

In one of the two shows I watched before quitting we had a murder case with known suspects but no prosecutable evidence. The two cold case experts brought in their ex-homicide detective who is supposed to be a fantastic suspect interrogator. He seems to say to the suspects, "Come on, you did, didn't you?" and they confess. Just about that complicated. The show is really insulting to viewers and pretty much to the police too. Expand

    Kelly and Yolanda seem to be sincere in their quest for justice. My frustration is there is no closure. It would be nice to know the extent of that justice.... Conviction? Penalty? You follow their sleuthing, only to be left hanging about the final legal outcome.

    There isn’t a lot of drama.

    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.

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