A damn shame!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kidnapped - Season One [DVD] (DVD)
Look, I watch a lot of TV but I am seriously selective in what I watch. I teach film and television studies for a living, so I guess you could say that I am rather critical about what constitutes a quality TV show. I am not going to go into detail here about what makes Kidnapped so great in terms of its technical and thematic qualities. I simply discovered Kidnapped by accident. But when such a fantastic television program is taken from the air way before its time, it really frustrates me. Kidnapped is entertaining, fast paced action that is well cast and performed. Simple as that. You will love it! It deserved at least a second season.

As someone who teaches film study shouldn't you have been critical of the initial kidnapping scene? The father is told by the kidnappers not to go to the police and yet they stage the 'snatch' in a busy street and shoot two people (killing one) in the process! Won't the police be automatically involved?!!! They obviously didn't dispose of the evidence because the bodyguard ends up in hospital. Presumably the kidnappers didn't take him there in a moment of remorse!
