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

Great Show, too bad NBC killed it
21 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Given the show was canceled after 3 weeks on NBC, I would assume there would be quite a bit of skepticism around the show. That being said, everyone makes mistakes and NBC made a big one here. Kidnapped has the same complex characters, interesting plots and strong acting that makes 24 such an addictive franchise. But apparently NBC lacks patience and would rather create another lame game show for its programming. Anyway,Kidnapped is a great show. If you like 24, you'll like this show as well. Several strong plot lines - some are more relationship driven (father/son, husband/wife, co-workers, etc.) some are more of your typical action drama related (who are the good guys, who's the mole, etc.), but, for the most part, the plot line are well written and not terribly predictable like many shows on the air these days. The acting is superb as well, throughout the cast. Most of the lead characters are complex and are relatively well developed even though NBC decided to cut the number of episodes down from 22 to 13. If it ever comes out on DVD, check it out.
