Interesting episode
8 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

This episode of "Without a Trace" deals with racism. It was good, as usual, and quite a powerful episode, but I found it a bit...cold. I don't know how to explain it but it seemed sort of emotionally detached. In this episode, a white teenager and a black teenager go missing at exactly same time, and there is a lot more attention given to the white teenager, both in the media and eventually the office. It was a catch-22 as the more media attention was given to the missing white teen, the more leads came into the office, so the more agents had to be placed on that case. I felt, though, that it wasn't as simple as it was portrayed - as though more attention was giving to the white teen because she was also a girl, and from a better area, so not just because of her race. Maybe that was part of it, but to me it seemed as though something was missing. Also it was kinda funny seeing Scout Taylor-Compton's face up in on missing posters. The stand-out acting in this episode was by the ladies playing the mothers of the teens (Viola Davis and Marin Mazzie, I believe), and the had some awesome scenes together. The ending...was very sad. But it didn't quite go anywhere, not like some others endings that really make you think.
