Not too terrible
Verified purchase
The male actors are direly bad. The women carry this. The setting, Vancouver, is lovely. It was crated in 1998 so it looks a bit dated. Came out long before CSI and Cold Case so pretty good for its time. Each story kept me interested, especially Elston, and Taggert family. The female lead is believable without being a byotch and the profiler is also interesting. Don't see buckets of gore, though they do talk about the deaths in detail. If you fancy tightly-written bare-bones TV with no frills at all, this Canadian show will help you pass the time.

This great series mystically appeared on Sunday Late Night (actually Monday early morning) TV on our Minneapolis CBS affiliate. My initial reaction was "Who are these crazy Canadians and what are they doing?" because Mpls local started it mid-series. I have grown to love it - great characters, absorbing story lines, better but darker than the US copycat Cold Case - and I wish I could find the whole series, to see what we missed. Somehow? Somewhere?

Slow, ordinary, nothing about it grabs you
Verified purchase
I bought this show based on the great reviews I read on Amazon and my fondness for BBC/CBC crime shows. And I gave rave reviews for another Canadian TV cop show I recently bought called "The Border". But I didn't like this show much at all. The pacing was slow, the acting no better than a weak cop show you'd see late at night on cable, and the characters and cases just had no 'sizzle' in my view. The premise of this show is identical to the series that ran for 8 years on CBS, also called "Cold Case", starring Kethryn Morris. That is a great show but unfortunately not available on DVD and probably never will be. So I would not recommend this show to anyone who loves cop shows. Its not 'terrible', its just that their are SO many good cop series out there (The Wire, The Shield, Law & Order, to name a few)that I wouldn't waste my time watching it. I stopped after 3 episodes.

the beginning
Verified purchase
I recently read an article about this series which contradicted my belief that this idea began with Waking the Dead. I was fascinated by the obvious connections with Waking the Dead and, of course, Cold Case, each following parts of this original in their own way - Waking the Dead with a profiler and Cold Case with a female lead. Cold Squad does not spend much time on flashbacks during the story, and there is a lot more discussion of and work with paper. I have found it absorbing, not always easy to follow, it requires some concentration to follow the plot. But those fans of Waking the Dead and the great Cold Case, try it and see.

I like this show

I like this show. I especially like the way Julie Stewart's character holds her own without getting into conflicts with the other characters, which is kind of a common, but tiresome theme in other cop shows. It's got a lot of humanity. I hope some of the later seasons become available on Amazon Prime.

An excellent alternative to "reality" junk TV.

I love this show. We decided not to get cable or satellite at our 2nd home in Idaho and I found that PBS had pretty much the only intelligent viewing available. This series is one of my favorites. Good stories, well acted with good characters. I highly recommend it.

I enjoyed this show very much. I wish some things hadn't been left in the air, but for the most part, each show took care of itself. Very intelligent and excellent acting!
