Storyline

When the son of a wealthy man is kidnapped, the parents are called and told not to involve the police. The mother wants some kind of assurance that they will get their son back, so the family lawyer tells them of a man who specializes in bringing back kidnap victims. He comes and he's not exactly people friendly but will do whatever he has to to bring their son back. The boy's bodyguard, who is shot and placed in a hospital, is found by his brother-in-law, an FBI agent, who is thereby told about the boy's kidnapping. He goes to the family and, knowing the specialist they've hired, tries working together to bring the boy back, but they learn that there's a lot more going on. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Praise Kidnapped!
19 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was too great of a show to be canceled! Nbc made a BAD decision to cancel it without giving enough time for people to discover this excellent drama. Even though it is now canceled and they even stopped showing the episodes online at nbc.com, there have been tons of newcomers who join the Kidnapped board on nbc.com. Please join us if you would like to see Kidnapped return for a new season =). The characters are ALL well thought out and played really well by the actors. Especially Will Denton, for a "child" actor, he REALLY can act! GOOD JOB!!!! He really has a great future in acting. This was a much better show than Heroes! BRING KIDNAPPED BACK NBC!!!
