  1. "Vanished" is indeed compelling. And it is without question Fox's best fall offering (though, having seen all its shows, that praise is not as high as you might expect).
  2. 63
    Whatever one thinks of the format, the briskly paced setup is effectively done.
  3. “Vanished” offers suspense and high-society melodrama.
  4. The show teeters at times on incomprehensibility but is brought back each time by its two stars.
  5. 50
    A dumb but powerful serialized mystery that has an equal shot at being the season's biggest cult hit and its most mind-boggling flop.
  6. 50
    The premiere... doesn't inspire an instant commitment the way the premieres of "Prison Break" and "24" did.

    The filming is urgent! The dialogue is obvious! The actors get choked up! It's as if a film school class put together a thriller following all the rules precisely.
