Storyline

As any detective can tell you, investigating missing property or deaths is comparatively easy compared to elusive missing people. However in New York City, there is a special unit of the FBI that is designed to find them. Using the vast resources of their bureau, the team, lead by Agent Jack Malone, race against time in the tight 72 hour window after a disappearance while hope for a recovery is still typically possible.

Trivia

The original title of the show was "Vanished", but when CBS opted to pick it up the title was changed to "Without a Trace". See more »

Goofs

There are a number of scenes which indicate that the show is actually shot in Los Angeles and not New York, where the show is supposed to take place. There are several supposed one way streets with double yellow lines painted down the middle (which do not exist in New York), large blue street signs (which are used in LA, as opposed to NY, which uses green street signs), and house numbers on each street painted into the sidewalk in front of each house, which is also not done in New York, but instead in Los Angeles.

Ups and downs
18 November 2009 | by alain1707-586-829740See all my reviews

First of all, to all the people who wanted Roselyn Sanchez out of the picture, your wish has been fulfilled. It seems that WAT will not return for an eighth season.

Personally, I thought she wasn't that bad. She even won an award for her acting in this series. Has anyone ever thought that the way she acted was maybe the way her character was supposed to be? Lifeless, cold, emotionless, like a real FBI agent. I had no problem with her accent either. If anyone was mumbling on that show it was rather Anthony Lapaglia! Anyway, the first season was a little shaky with actors finding their characters. The second season was great. The third season had too much emphasis on character personal development and unrealistic involvement with each other. Almost to the point of having the impression of watching a bad soap opera.

And it went downhill from there, until the last seasons where the writing got a bit better, but not as good as the early shows.

Well all this is academic, since we've seen the very last of Jack, Sam, Vivian, Danny, and Martin. Oh, and I almost forgot, Elena.

In my humble opinion, Marianne Jean-Baptiste was the best actress throughout her 159 episodes, even though we didn't see her character's private side as much as the others.

My two cents on it.
