Goofs
Frequently, in various episodes, the detectives say that a gun is registered to someone (or that someone has no registered guns, or the like). There is no gun registration in Pennsylvania; it's prohibited by state law.

Q
But it wouldn't make sense for the copyright owners to not license these songs for a DVD release, would it? When the songs are heard on the DVD release, wouldn't many people be inspired to purchase the CD or pay for a download?
A
Yes, they would. The more exposure the music gets, the greater the sales will be. Common sense would dictate that the copyright holders would have a huge incentive to make sure a DVD is released, even if they have to sell the rights at a fairly low price (or even for free). But unfortunetely, the music business is not run by common sense but by egos. The people involved would be too afraid of looking bad if they don't receive a high licensing fee. They would rather look tough by not agreeing to a deal even if it does not serve their interests in this case.
Q
Is Cold Case coming to DVD?
A
Cold Case is being stalled on its release on DVD because of copyright issues having to do with the music in the show. It will cost millions of dollars in royalties that would have to be paid to the record companies and the artists for use of their songs on the DVDs.
Q
In Season 1, Episode 12 "Glued", Lt. Stillman mentions that his daughter was born while he was working the Tim Barnes case in 1980, putting her in her mid 20's, yet in Season 2, Episode 16 "Revenge" his daughter, Janie, mentions being 18 nearly 20 years ago, putting her in her late 30's. Is this a goof, or does he have more than one daughter?
A
No, it was established many times that Stillman only has one daughter, and we know it is intended to be the same daughter because she was a few months pregnant in "Glued", and had her baby baptized in "Revenge". This is one of the biggest and most noticeable goofs in the series.
