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

Love Kidnapped
29 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Kidnapped is a show that will keep you asking questions thats for sure! From the 1st show I couldn't take my eyes off,and I keep coming back for more , Will Leopold get away ? will he make friends with Otto an get help from him ? Does Sully have anything to do with Leopolds kidnapping ? Will Conrads Dad help from a far to close the gap of father an son ? Will the Mom play a bigger role in the family secrets? No wonder it takes a whole season for this all to play out !! Did Knapp get someone killed is that why he's not a agent anymore ? This show gives you a look into the family of the victim, lets you get to know some history of these people and understand how it effects them.Kidnapped does not just jump in and show you whats going on , it lets you get to know others that may have some shady past and dealings with the Cains, it tells you a story if your willing to see the out come of this show for the season you will be pleased and come back for more. I can't wait, I keep coming back for more it's my NBC addiction !
