Review by Suzanne 8/26/06
This is a good drama on FOX. It takes the premise of a
show like "Without a Trace" (where FBI agents look for missing persons) and goes
further with it. First of all, one case is the focus for the whole season,
much like "24" or "Reunion" (two other FOX shows). A senator's wife was
kidnapped, so the FBI are called in to find her. The FBI agents' lives are
part of the show, but so far it doesn't seem to be a soap opera, which is good.
I like soaps, but that format doesn't always work with primetime crime dramas.
The main FBI person (played by Gale Harold, one of my favorite actors), has
demons. He was just on leave because in his last case, a kidnapped little
boy blew up in front of him (and of course he blames himself). He suspects
everyone in the kidnap case, including the loving husband, and he doesn't mince
words. The other actors/characters in the show seem very good as well. It has a
large ensemble cast.
Expect this show to take many twists and turns and have lots of
action. Just from the first episode, it seems that the senator's wife has
a past--she went by another name and disappeared years ago. Also, the
senator's daughter is dating a man that may be mixed up in her step-mother's
kidnapping, as she discovers when she finds bloody laundry and a satchel full of
cash. Yet, she still wants to run off with him.
The show also has an ambitious reporter (played by actress
Rebecca Gayheart), who helps to uncover leads on the case as well, and we see
things through her viewpoint as well as that of the FBI and the family of the
missing woman. There is very little that is black and white about this
show. It really keeps you interested and wondering what will happen next.
I look forward to seeing how it develops over the season. I hope they give it a
chance, unlike "Reunion".
