A potential client named Bishop (Danny Pino) who wants to learn self defense requests Kick provide him with a private lesson. Although the teacher versus new student defense class does not go as planned for either the teacher Kick, nor her new student Bishop, in walks the FBI agent Frank Booth, who rescued Kick all those years ago with an offer. I thought the fight scene was more than over the top. Ouchhhhh!
Frank asks Kick and another kidnapping survivor named James Finley (Andy Mientus) to join a special kidnap/rescue forces team that he is just forming whose job is to investigate recent child kidnappings. The special kidnapping task force team includes three former actors who all starred in previous successful television crime series. Chris Noth (Law & Order), Danny Pino (Cold Case, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), and Tracie Thoms (Cold Case).
The pilot episode provides the TV viewers with some insights into what each member of the task force brings to the team. Kick is obviously still harboring some demons from her childhood days held in captivity but she knows the ins and outs of these child predators fro first hand knowledge as to how they cultivate their victims and keep them as hostages for years (as she was).
My Pet Peeve: Whenever I see a member of TV's law enforcement who looks like (s)he is still in high school sitting in front of a computer monitor and frantically typing aimlessly on the keyboard in front of them, and within five (5) seconds of air time they have discovered the perpetrators hideout I grow disappointed quickly in the quality of the program as it is a very cheap and lazy screenwriter who cannot build a storyline that captures the audiences attention.
I give the pilot episode a decent enough 8 out of 10 rating and time will tell how this series progresses. I just hope the series Gone loses the phony keyboard typing detective that is so prevalent in so many mediocre TV crime series.
