Found (NBC) - Missing Person Procedural - S: Shanola Hampton, Mark-Paul Gosselaar




In a riveting new drama, brilliant recovery specialist Gabi Mosely and her team are dedicated to finding America’s missing and forgotten people. They’ll stop at nothing to solve these cases because for them, it’s personal – every member of the team has firsthand experience with a mysterious disappearance. But Gabi has a chilling secret of her own that could unravel everything... she’s got her childhood kidnapper locked up in the basement, helping her crack every case.
I know procedurals don't get much attention here but with the lack of shows coming back this fall, wanted to see if anyone else is watching this. The premise is silly but it checks all the boxes if you enjoy this type of case of the week show. I don't find any of the characters annoying, which is a big plus. That being said, I'd be surprised if it sees a 2nd season.

We are enjoying the Irrational however.

Irrational has been better but also is more generic. Classic Sherlock formula of super smart guy working with the police to solve crimes.

Irrational is just such an easy watch, and so far I am enjoying the core cast (including the dude and dudette who sub-in to teach his classes) interaction with each other. I always watch when it airs on Peacock.

I am also watching this show (I think I have watched the third episode, but not this weeks yet), which is so far just all kinds of odd. I kind-of like that the lead of the show has her own Hannibal Lector type psycho chained up in her basement but it is not very realistic. It does seem that the bit after the first ep that showed what was coming up on the season hinted that at least one member of her team starts to wonder what is behind a locked door when they are in her home, but yeah...this show might spin out of control rather fast.

Iíll watched the first three episodes. Interesting but nothing special. I do like the cast though
so will stick for however long. The locked door bugs me. If you convert your basement laundry room into a dungeon why make the locks so obvious? You need a slide away bookcase or something to cover it up.

I'm watching too, but this has no chance of making to to a second season.

I started to make a post about this show a while back but I figured there would be little to no interest here at dvdtalk considering the crowd.

I was right.

So Sir was her school teacher. Then why the hell did she still call him Sir after she escaped and not just give the cops his name? Why, all these years later where he's now tied up in her basement, does she still refer to him as Sir? Hell, wouldn't she at least call him something different to disrespect him?

Some kind of conditioning or trauma dissociation mechanism or a weird Stockholm Syndrome? People deal with traumatic events differently. He was always an authority figure to her.

I mean, she has him chained up in her basement and often denies him food. That would seem like a contradiction for the character to both be OK enough to find/kidnap/hold him but not OK enough to tell anyone his real name after she escaped.

Oh I'm sure she told the police and everyone else his name. That's why they have the records of when he was spotted following her through life after she escaped. The public has to know his name and what he looks like to have that kind of dossier. I don't find it strange that both she, Lacey and the people in her company call him Sir. The police officer I'll give you. No reason there.

I don't know...the show gives me the impression that all anyone knows of him is "Sir". Like she never told anyone after she escaped that it was her teacher. Otherwise it would have been pretty easy to find him.

I can see that POV but since they are actively looking for him and have spotting him spying on Gabi they must know that he looks like. The police have a file of confirmed sighingst. I doubt they are using a sketch from Gabi's memory. It's more likely that Gabi told them that it was the teacher so they have years of photos.

They are using a sketch. They showed it in an earlier episode when that hotline to find him was set up. The cops don't know who he is outside of that sketch and Sir.

Cool but I'd be very surprised if it's any good. This definitely seems like a show where the writers had a cool idea but have no idea to make it last. We know that next week the guy on her team will know that she has Sir. Unless they plan to just drop MPG and keep it as a procedural with the team finding people, I don't see how it can continue with some absurd explanation.

I don't remember that. I do remember the cop showing Gabi pictures of young her and Sir that they found at his apartment. It was when he tell her Sir was tracking her.
EDIT: Episode - "Missing While Homeless" about three minutes in.
