Without a Trace 2/12

This show never seems to have many threads devoted to it. I hope that's not an indication of folks here not watching.

at any rate, the episode from 2/12 ranks right up there among WaT episodes. Pretty powerful and disturbing stuff.

That was actually the first time I've seen the show... tough ep to watch! Are they all that emotional?

It does not indeed get many threads devoted to it. I watch every episode and man this was crazy. I would hate to have kids going through this in high school.


Poor kid.

I watch it, I just haven't seen last week's ep yet.

Just watched - damn, that was a depressing ep. Jack, Danny and Co. did a great job as always.

I thought that it was one of the most emotional shows that I have seen in a long time. Danny was even crying at the end when they found the kid. It hit me pretty hard as well. After seeing what the kid had gone through, and realizing that kids go through this everyday, it was a very sad yet appropriate ending.

Probably best drama on the air right now.

I've only missed two episodes in the last two season, and I must say that last weeks was in the top 3 ever.

I thought that they were going to be too late, and get there right as he stopped twitching, then bring him back, but I like what happened alot better.

Anthony LaPaglia deserved his Golden Globe... and the many more he'll get in the future.

I would have started a thread about that ep, but like you said, I wasn;t sure who'd wanna talk about it.

I was kind of geeky in school, but I'm glad I a good base of friends and didn't have to go through that.

I started watching it at the end of last season (the finale was amazing), and then I started watching re-runs over the summer (as did the wife). This show is one reason that I now have no problem seeing E.R. end it's run whenever NBC decides to do so.

Not all. But many episodes do have that element in them especially episodes dealing with missing kids.

I started watching this show during Summer repeats last year and am certainly glad I did.

This is one of the more emotional episodes of the show I've seen.

my biggest gripe with this show and shows of its ilk was the scene where they traced the payphone.

Eric made it to the payphone in what 2 mins, and then Jack gets there as well in his car from the office at midtown or wherever it is?

That's what I find the most unbelievable about these shows. The detectives get there before the local police.

aside from that its a good show.
