I cannot believe there is not an existing thread on MISSING. I guess nobody watched this show, including myself.

I have all the episodes on the DVR, and will watch them over the summer if the main plot is resolved. Since this show was cancelled, you never know. I have been burned too many times in the past.

The FINAL episode is tonight, and I would appreciate a post as to whether the plot is resolved or not (assuming there is somebody watching).

I watched Missing from the beginning and liked the show - the foreign locales, spy intrigue and the cast - Sean Bean, Ashley Judd and Keith Carradine.

Sorry to see this one go. I really thought it had a chance.

I like the concept. I loved the foreign locales. I liked Ashley Judd. I think Sean Bean is wooden and find it hard to believe they are married.

That aside the execution seems too much like a cliche 24 clone. You will see this once you watch it. I still feel it had renewal potential with a different show runner but it got canceled so much for that.

I watched the first few episodes and liked it, so I setup a season pass on my DVR and there they sit. I still plan on watching them as time permits even though it sounds like the series has been cancelled. I too am surprised no Missing thread, I'll do some searching and post back if I find anything. I remember reading early on Missing talk on AVS, maybe it was in one of the sticky threads...

In your case your search for the term missing....led to the thread being....missing? Talk about life imitating art!

If you clicked on The Missing thread posted by jaypb, then you know the plot was (and wasn't) resolved....if not for the last few seconds, it WAS resolved, but with the last few seconds it WASN'T resolved.

I personally liked the show, especially the amazing *global* locations with the amazing cinematography. The PQ and AQ were quite good too for satellite/cable viewing. And last, but not least, the actions scenes were decent for prime-time viewing. I truly wish the UNRESOLVED plot was going to be revealed in a second season...but I guess it has met its demise.
