  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.

    Fair to poor. Would-be clever scenes tacked together to look like a thrilling TV show, but not making much sense. Characters all over the map but not really going anywhere. Frantically dull. I didn't keep watching when it changed times. The finishing up on a website was good for a laugh, though. Expand

    Someone said that Gale Herold is the only good lead actor on TV now. Hello? Kiefer Sutherland from 24? James Gandolfini from Sopranos? Hugh Laurie on House, Matt Fox on LOST? you think Gale is comparable to these award winning actors? Who ever thinks this, you're insane. He's okay, but he's the only decent actor on this show, and the acting and writing is bad compared to the other shows that I've just listed. Expand

    Why would anyone care about any of the characters on this show?

    Even the production design was terrible. C'mon--what does the network take us for, a bunch of idiots?
