    The opener has been smoothly filmed, but the second episode supplies personal angles that deepen Kidnapped and suggest its potential.
  2. 80
    The most tautly written of all the new serialized dramas.
  3. Tonight's pilot has a film quality to it and the narrative flow is both intriguing and unexpected.
  4. "Kidnapped" plays out like a point-by-point criticism of everything "Vanished" gets wrong.
  5. Sleek, action-packed and heavy on the acting talent.
  6. In a TV landscape bloated with serialized, surprise-a-minute thrillers, it'll take more than a sparkly thespian roster to keep viewers interested. [22 Sep 2006, p.89]
  7. 50
    You can easily imagine yourself settling in with Kidnapped for six, eight, maybe even 13 episodes. But 22? Sorry, no.

    Great debut. Very good actors. Vanished should vanish, and Kidnapped is great.

    Loved this show. I think Timothy Hutton is very good. I think they are all very good! Hope it continues on as good as it has begun!
