Product Description

After a millionaire's son is abducted, a relentless private investigator forges an uneasy alliance with an fbi agent to unravel a complex & deadly web of deception.

Amazon.com

Full of drama, suspense, and action, Kidnapped has all the makings of a taut whodunit. When the teenage son of a wealthy family is kidnapped, Conrad (Timothy Hutton, Ordinary People) and Ellie (Dana Delaney, China Beach) Cain hire a renegade investigator named Knapp (Jeremy Sisto, Six Feet Under) to get their child back. Knapp is abrasive and not at all concerned with breaking the law as long as he is able to save the victim. Still, he could work on his people skills. As one old woman asks, as he bullies his way into her house, "What kind of name is Knapp?" She's got a point. Unless you're famous, announcing yourself simply by your last name is pretty pretentious. All 13 episodes of this NBC series--which aired during the 2006-2007 season--are included on this three-disc DVD set. And unlike many shows that are canceled within a year, Kidnapped offers viewers closure and a finite ending.

While the first few episodes dealing with the kidnapping are gripping, the show layers on some subplots that fail. Is Ellie having an affair with a prominent politician? Did Conrad kill his ex-mistress? Neither character is particularly likeable, so the viewer doesn't really care. Hutton, who is superb in so many other projects, never rings true here. Speaking in a tough guy accent (when he remembers), his character is never convincing as a boy from the wrong side of the tracks who made good. And Delaney is never quite believable as an uptown girl who doesn't get particularly flustered when she has to protect herself from an assailant. (Explaining her ease handling weapons, Ellie says, "I know how to shoot a gun. My father's a Republican.")Other characters get to delivery clunky lines as well. When FBI agent Latimer King (Delroy Lindo, Get Shorty) is asked if he thinks there's a leak in the office, he knowingly says, "If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck..." Like ABC's Murder One, Kidnapped asks a lot of its viewers to have patience and watch a drama unfold over a series of several months. The problem is that unlike Murder One--which was also low rated--the plot here isn't nearly convincing enough to be warrant the wait. --Jae-Ha Kim

Customer Reviews

Great series, awesome cast, very well written.
AZshopgirl
It is very suspenseful, as it continues revealing criminals throughout, and it shows some surprising turns that were taken on them as well.
Fearless Velocity
Like her, we watched the entire series in a weekend.

Kidnapped is "Without A Trace" crossed with "24" with, IMO, better actors. Jeremy Sisto, Delroy Lindo (movie star caliber), Timothy Hutton (ditto), Mykelti Williamson (ditto again), and Dana Delaney (probably most famous for "China Beach") lead the cast.

If you like drama, if you like shows that don't wrap everything up in one episode, you will like "Kidnapped." The production values are high and the story grabs you in the very first episode. It's almost like a 10 hour movie thriller.

I do have to mention a few minor negatives. For one, the telling of the story (the plot and excellent actors) is better than the resolution. You'll know "who did it" by the second to last episode (if not possibly sooner) which takes some air out of the tires for the final hour or so. Secondly, the resolution is done adequately, but not with a slam dunk like they had in the very first episode with the kidnapping. Perhaps this is due to the fact that they knew at time of filming the final episode that the show was going to be canceled and they just needed to get the thing in the can and move on. But these are minor quibbles. If you the enjoy the ride more than the destination it makes the show worth your time.

So with such a great cast and story, we have to wonder why it was canceled.

"Kidnapped" came out after the unexpected success of "Lost" and "24." When ABC showed that you could create and keep a solid audience base with a story that took multiple episodes if not multiple seasons to resolve everyone tried to copy the format. There were probably at least ten such shows. Some of them just weren't that good in my opinion. Most of them certainly did not have the high tension and stellar cast of "Kidnapped.

Kidnapped told the story of a wealthy New York City couple (Timothy Hutton and Dana Delany) whose teenage son (Will Denton) is abducted and, the investigative team assigned to find him (headed by an ex-FBI operative played by Jeremy Sisto).

The series debuted back on September 30, 2006. NBC cancelled it after just three episodes. The network told the writers to wrap up the storyline in thirteen episodes but it was pulled off the air after five.

The network posted the unaired episodes online but a lot of people missed them -- slow connections, older computers, etc.

How many other shows have been pulled off the air and will likely never be released? Smith, 3lbs., Reunion, The Nine, Six Degrees, Runaway and on and on...

The fans have been incredibly supportive of this show from the beginning and it is only because of their constant letters, emails and calls that this show is being released on DVD.

Congrats you Knapp-heads!

Let me start off by saying that this show was a complete surprise. The show landed on my radar simply because I like to watch all the pilots I can and I had a Wednesday night free. With that said, Kidnapped is the season's best new show, and not just of the ones that were cancelled.

Kidnapped looks like your run of the mill show at first glance. With a name like Kidnapped and previews that showed nothing special, it would seem that this show would change the climate of television about as much as another CSI spinoff, but that's not the case, starting with the actors.

Jeremy Sisto does an excellent job as the kidnapping specialist, gelling with every scene and situation. Timothy Hutton and Dana Delaney work well as the grieving parents, giving out little hints of what is going on inside in every scene. Delaney especially excels in this category. Finally, Delroy Lindo plays the experienced cop to perfection. The rest of the cast is just as good, making every scene work.

Good actors are to be expected in such a series, but good writing is not, and this is where Kidnapped launches itself to new heights. The writing is outstanding in every way possible. The dramatic scenes and emotional dialogue are aced with ease while Sisto's Knapp is given witty and humorous dialogue at all the right times. Not to mention the kidnapping story is done extremely well, handing out surprises around every corner.

It is so rare that a show like this be so good. With shows like Lost and 24 steadily losing viewership it would have been nice to see this show thrive, but the show didn't find an audience and was cancelled after just three weeks, even after being moved to the artic tundra of Saturday. Luckily the show was given a thirteen episode commitment, which is the only reason this DVD exists. Buy it, rent it, watch it. It's worth it.

Like cult-fave "MURDER ONE" before it - this was another attempt at a season-long story-line. No matter how good it was - or may have become - it was doomed from the get go becuase of this. Most viewers don't have the patience to sit through something this involving, without letting go after a few episodes. Despite "24" seeming to do this - that show is in reality several 2-3 episode arcs, rather than a true continuing story - while shows like KIDNAPPED & MURDER ONE - you had to follow what was happening episode by episode or be lost forever.

The cast -let by Sisto - was spectacular. Strangely, the weakest link of the cast was Timothy Hutton, though I blame this shortcoming on the networks cramming the show into fewer episodes than they originally planned on - making some of the ongoing plots and sub-plots weaker than they should have been ( or abandoned all-together ).

My one complaint about this set - is that the "documentary" included on the 2nd disc of the set of 3, does BLOW the mystery/ending of the whole series. In my eyes, it should have been included on the final disc in the series, not the middle one.

Kidnapped-Complete Series- Is this the 2006 NBC TV Series?
Yes it is. It's unfortunate that Amazon doesn't have the artwork on display. I'd submit it but there doesn't seem to be a way to do it. You can see it on our site.
