Storyline

13 episodes of this syndicated show were produced in 1994 and 1995 and first aired in January 1995. Jian-Wa comes to America from Beijing with his brother Wago to find freedom. Wago, who is hot-headed, falls in with a gang and he and two federal agents are murdered. Jian-Wa is determined to find the culprits who are lead by the mysterious "The General" a Vietnamese who is making millions of dollars. Compounding the problem, Federal Agent Sandler is pursuing Jian-Wa because he thinks Jian-Wa killed the agents; Agent Phillips, who works for Sandler, is keeping an open mind about Jian-Wa's guilt or innocence.

My feelings on the show
15 April 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Vanishing Son is a show I actually miss. It had its downfalls, like the fact the plot was the usual 'being chased by the police' story, but I thought the actors did a good job. Sadly, it was cancelled some years back. I wish I had thought to tape it before it was gone. It had original moments despite the cliche.
