... if we would ever get another Without a Trace season in region 1. And this season contains some fascinating cases: a bus of kids abudcted, a satire-laden fake kidnapping, a murderous twin (but who knows which one?), and many more. We're also treated to some great character moments. Martin loses control and ends up shooting a suspect; Vivian makes an irreversible choice to lie to protect both their careers, and both have to deal with the consequences in later episodes. Samantha is forced into counseling after being shot in the Season One finale; she says she's fine, but we know she isn't. Danny has to choose whether to testify on his brother's behalf, or abandon him the way he once abandoned Danny. An Alzheimer's diagnosis forces Jack to re-evaluate the strained relationship with his father (wonderfully played by Martin Landau), and a certain case causes him to relive his painful adolescence with an emotionally unstable mother.

Overall, this season continues the watchability and excellent writing begun by Season One.

The second Season of Without A Trace does not disappoint. The plots are believable, often shocking and never dull, and the five main actors have fine-tuned their interaction. The delicately crafted imbalance of five agents, with Poppy Montgomery's character not being able to forget her former lover Jack Malone (the chemistry between the two actors is a delight to see) and unable to commit to her new man Martin Fitzgerald, adds extra spice to an already nail-biting series. Incredible that the entire series was filmed in Los Angeles, I would have sworn it had been shot in the Big Apple where it is meant to take place. Keep up the good work. And please release Seasons 3 and 4 which are already available at Amazon.co.uk but without the extras and 5 minutes shorter per episode.

Season Two was a wonderful continuation of the series: from the wonderful connection between the stellar cast to the flawless way that they manuevered through casefiles and personal issues. And, for me, it showcased the reason I started watching the series: the burgeoning relationship between Martin and Sam. From 2.1 "The Bus" to the finale, 2.2 "Bait" it showed the chemistry that made the show enjoyable to watch. With the added element of the affair Sam once had with her boss, Jack, it made the series sizzle even more. This was the season that got me hooked. I highly rec it. Particularly for the deleted scenes - especially the ones from "Shadows."

I have enjoyed this show since its debut and hope they will put out all seasons on DVD. Strong writing and excellent cast that balances character development with intrigueing stories and manages not to go down the slippery path to becoming another prime time soap opera. There is a good reason that it has had strong and respectable ratings for several seasons.

Season 1 of Without a Trace was really intriguing throughout the entire season; I don't find that to be true of season 2 but it is still played well enough by the actors and actresses to hold my attention. the endings to some of the episodes left me unsatisfied, but Anthony LaPaglia still made each episode worth watching.

I don't watch a heck of a lot of primetime tv as I consider most of it so un-original, but this is one of best shows currently airing, along with "The Office" and the new "Battlestar" in my opinion. The premise is simple - at the beginning of each episode someone goes missing, and the FBI's (fictional) Missing Persons Unit searches for them, following the trail the various clues lead to. While the mystery is (generally) solved by episode's end, the show offers no guarantee of a happy ending.

The show has had some very compelling sometimes gut-wrenching storylines, and very strong acting (the American FBI unit is played by a combo Australian/British/American cast). The head of the unit is Jack Malone, a great character who often uses physcology and rough around-the-edges tactics in his questioning to arrive at the truth. Jack is also "on the edge," will not play politics with his superiors, and of course his personal life is often a mess.

Some eposides also offer a particularily "dark" tone, but still very intelligent storytelling. Standout episodes from season 2 include "The Bus" (episode 1), "Copycat" (episode 5) "Wannabe," (15) "Doppleganger,"(19) and "Two Families" (episode 21). Though each episode usually features a "stand-alone" plot, the show occasionally rewards regular viewers with a degree of continuity - occasionally a compelling storyline or "villian" re-appears in later episodes.

I agree with others that it's a shame that only through season 2 has been released on DVD - guess I just gotta keep setting the VCR for TNT.
