    The most tautly written of all the new serialized dramas.
  2. 80
    The opener has been smoothly filmed, but the second episode supplies personal angles that deepen Kidnapped and suggest its potential.
  3. 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.
  4. Great cast and intriguing storytelling may get viewers, and, more important, network honchos, hooked.
  5. "Kidnapped" plays out like a point-by-point criticism of everything "Vanished" gets wrong.
  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. For the time being it's a hard slog.

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