I'm just hooked.
13 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While flipping through channels one day, I came across the previews for this show and decided to give it a shot. Turns out I ended up liking it even more as things progressed in the first episode with ample character development and a plot with many twists and turns that keeps you on the edge of your seat at a steady pace. The key aspect that clicked with me was the dynamics of this amateur group of detectives that have their reasons for joining in the fight for justice for those that have become "forgotten" by deadly circumstances beyond their control and with sheer determination and will, they become personally and emotionally involved in the case. With all the other crime shows out now, I would say that "The Forgotten" is nicely ranked up there with the likes of "CSI", Criminal Minds, and of course Cold Case. Lets hope ABC rests their laurels on this one. One of the best crime shows on the air.
