After each of the first two hours of "Kidnapped," you're eager to learn what happens next. In any TV series, that's a good sign. In a serialized drama, it's crucial - and "Kidnapped" makes it look easy.
"The Knights of Prosperity" has delivered this season where so many new shows have failed: It introduces a serialized story line with characters and a plot that are different and likable enough to warrant a return visit.
Happily, viewers have less of a challenge in picking up the somewhat complex story line that continues from the "Terminator" movies. Newcomers won't be any more confused than they are by any time-travel adventure.
The rest of the drama, though, suspends disbelief much more successfully. The acting, by both men and women, is quite nuanced and well-observed. After a few episodes, you feel their pain, and hope that it is eased.
Once we've all acknowledged there really was no need to remake "The Wizard of Oz" because the original creators did a pretty good job back in 1939, it's safe to admit that the way it's been handled in Tin Man, a new miniseries, is a lot of fun.
