it might be more interesting if it wasn't only centered in Chicago
6 April 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This first episode was great. Styled in the same format as "The First 48" it simply follows the "Missing Persons" Detectives. If it continues as well as this first episode, this will be a fan favorite.This is good but the lead up to finding someone makes me get mad when after the whole episode of poking around they find the person and the person's just confused doesn't wanna say what happened. its so unsatisfying, I like how in the regular first 48 they usually get a confession

While I would agree that the original First 48 is an all around better show, I find this one is more suspenseful. With the other one, it starts off with the person already dead, but with this one it could really go either way and you're waiting on the edge of your seat to see if they find them alive or dead. I'm hoping it gets a Season 2.
