"Best Friends" Cold Case TV Episode...
« on: February 01, 2012, 07:35:28 PM »
I just happened to flip the remote and caught the last 10 minutes of
this episode on the ION cable channel last night. It is a story of an interracial lesbian couple and violent hateful incidents they endured in the 1930s.

I have to say that the episode hit me emotionally like a ton of bricks.  Especially the presentation of ghosts from the distant past visiting the present.

You can see Marla Gibbs (The Jeffersons/227 sitcoms) near the end of the episode.  I understand the original broadcast was around 2005 or 2006.

Yeah, I remember this episode. It was one of my favorites, the way that they recreated the whole Prohibition era (and the music that they used).

I also remember the one called "It's Raining Men", which focused on the early days of the AIDS.  It was kinda stereotypical, but fairly decent nonetheless.

"I have tried hard--but life is difficult, and I am a very useless person. I can hardly be said to have an independent existence. I was just a screw or a cog in the great machine I called life, and when I dropped out of it I found I was of no use anywhere else."

I really enjoyed that series.  I remember those episodes also.  There were quite a few that dealth with homosexuality.

Being honest is not wronging others, continuing the dishonesty is.
