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

Fabulous - great loss when cancelled - here's how to view end
31 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

I sent the following message to site ( streaming last episodes: Thanks to your terrific site my wife and I were able to watch all of Kidnapped (just finished day 13).

It is simply unbelievable how stupid the major networks were in cancelling this in N. America. We hope it comes out on DVD the same way Firefly, Boomtown and Wonderfalls did.

Many thanks and happy New Year.

This series felt like, and was as good as Man on Fire. The writing and acting was tight; the full story and denouement were amazing. When viewers chase (on the internet) after episodes promised and not delivered by the networks then the quality was evident. Only most will never know how good the story and series were, and what it potential was.
