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.
