I've loved this show for awhile now and usually watch it on the A&E Channel. Now some of the episodes are out on DVD. The majority of these cases were interesting. Some of my favorites are ''A Map to Murder'',The Zodiac Killer and The Green River Killer.

Heres a overview of all the cases contained on both disks.
Disk One-
1.One Night On The Bayou- Alligators point the way to murder in Louisiana's swampland where police find their victims throat slashed and stabbed. The file sits cold for years, until a thief decides to squeel about evening of fishing, drinking, and deadly revenge.
2.Killer In the Country- Ten years after the murder of three women, a detective extracts a DNA sample from saliva left on a cup to put a serial killer on death row.
3.Frozen In Time- A 23 yr old young woman pulls over to the side of the freeway in california to fix a flat tire and then disapears without a trace. Three years later police find her remains in the freezer of a rental truck which leads them down a forensic path to the cold case killer.
4.A Map To Murder- After a newspaper reporter pens a story about one of six slain prostitutes, the murderer sends a computer generated map marking another victims location. Police trace the map to a middle class suburban home and discover a dungeon of torture and murder.
5.The Zodiac Killer- The mystery of The Zodiac Killer. After 37 murders and 30 years later San Francisco Investigators see if DNA testing can reveal his identity.

Disk two-
1.The Green River Killer- Tells the story of the King County detectives who in the 80s chased a serial killer with a body count into the high 40's. After two decades DNA links four of the murders to a truck painter. Soon the secrets previously buried for 20 years are finally exposed.

I watch "Cold Case Files" each week, and it never ceases to amaze me how crimes that were committed many years before are still able to be solved.

The cases that are highlighted on this show are those that were never able to solved when the crimes were actually committed - usually due to lack of technology, or the fear that witnesses had of being killed themselves. Some of these cases are over 25 years old when they are finally solved!

Many times, there is at least 1 investigator who just couldn't let the case go, and they swore that some day the perpetrator would be caught. These men & women deserve a lot of credit, as it is usually their tenaciousness that gets the case re-opened to begin with - and many times, they are invited to help in solving the case now, as they are quite familiar with the in's & out's involved.

For me, the best thing about this program is that it shows that eventually most people will have to pay for the crimes they've committed. They can no longer assume that if they weren't caught within the first year or so that they're off the hook. I imagine quite a few criminals are starting to shake in their boots, wondering if their case will be the next to be re-opened!

Overall, I would highly recommend this DVD to anyone who enjoys learning how crimes, especially those from the long ago past, can still be solved using the technology of today, and the doggedness of law enforcement. It's a real eye opener!

I love this show, and this DVD was amazing. It was great having over eight different cold cases to view. It's amazing how these are real things that happened, and how people that sick are actually out there; what's even better is how most of them are finally caught. If crime cases interest you in any way BUY THIS DVD.

I brought this on a whim...have never seen the show as I live in Australia. Great value for money! Quite a few episodes (2 disc set) and each one goes for 15 mins or so...well worth watching and there is a completed ending unlike other unsolved shows.

I bought this DVD set 3 years ago and to be honest I was disappointed by most episodes. Cold Case Files is a great show and I can't believe that this is the best list they could came up with.

The best episodes are by far The Zodiac Killer and The Green River Killer, both of them are 45 minutes long and are very interesting, very well done. Other cases like "Killer in the County" and "The Weepy-Voiced Killer" are also very interesting. If you are a real fan of documentaries about True Crimes/Real life mysteries then go ahead, buy this DVD, for less than 20$ it's a good buy, but this could have been so much better. Good, but Disappointing.

This show is phenomenal. First, it bears recognizing that all cold cases, by definition, are rather hard cases to crack. And hard cases are very interesting cases. Each story is usually rife with incomplete clues, smart suspects and interesting twists. The show provides a thoughtful lens into the work of really good detectives and many of their techniques (some new, some old). But what draws me to this show the most is its intimacy. The stories paint a dense portrait of the subtleties of human character. It's not just about the how,when,where. No, much more developed is the why and who.

This will fit in well with your collection (if you have the others) of " Court TV: Forensic Files" and "Dominick Dunne's Power, Privilege and Justice". The Cold Case files DVD discusses forensic methods as well as psychological methods of catching crimes over a certain number of years old.
