Much speculation has been offered on the web about this being the last season of "Cold Case," the CBS crime procedural that has been a Sunday night favorite in our household for its entire 7 seasons. As one TV reviewer put it:

It's not that the show has shown a big decline in quality of late. It remains what it always has been — a pretty good crime drama.

It's not that the ratings are that bad. They're down this season, but the show's numbers are still better than those of a lot of shows that will be back in the fall.

This is more about money than anything else. As are most decisions when it comes to network television.

If you've been watch recent episodes, many of the characters' story lines seem to be in a "wrapping up" mode. And in what was a curious thing, Detective Lilly Rush, the primary character played by Kathryn Morris, was offered a job with the FBI handling cold cases. I could see a spin off or maybe some CBS movies because Morris has an almost cult-like fan base.

Being a fan from episode 1 I hope it stays around as long as they can maintain the quality. But I agree we're beginning to see things kind of come together for the characters and more back stories are coming out also.

Well, I wouldn't say these exactly wrapped the series. Not that that has ever bothered the bean counters in charge of what's kept and what's dropped. I did enjoy the assistant police commissioner or whatever he was losing his job. He's been a right royal pain in the other end.

I'm a huge tv series fan. :)
The humor presented on the Frasier dvds is intelligent unlike some TV shows that have humor that is stupid and immature and predictable. I like how Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde Pierce showcase their musical talents on the show(and I can tell that isn't fake piano playing) quite often.
24 is an immensely innovative show, that has its primary hook in the fact that events occur in real time for a period of 24 hours (with each episode representing one hour), and in the constant suspense and twists it pours out of every subplot. The show on the 24 dvds is held together by the strength of Sutherland's performance – Bauer is a fascinating individual.
Without any doubt, Mash is the best show ever made. On the Mash dvds the scenario writing is incredible, and the plots are very relevant to any society. Showing the worst of man to the very best of man, this show very well described the human condition.Yet, even with the anti-war message, they refrain from bashing on soldiers (as most anti-war people tend to do) and they express pride in the bravery of them, while hating the need to fight.

But my all time favorite tv series is Cold case :D. The Cold case dvds feature fictional cases that have been unsolved for years. The stories are touching, even though we know these situations are not real. Somehow it seeps under your skin because you know thousands of people in the real world live with the things that go on in the episodes.
