    1. The Bus When a school bus full of students goes missing during its morning run in a wealthy district, Jack and the team suspect two troublemaking students, brothers Doug (NICK CHASTAIN) and Richard (CHRIS COLLINS) Carrol, with a rich, neglectful father, Bob (CHRISTOPHER McDONALD). All of the students' cellular telephones and other communication devices are confiscated by the kidnappers--except for a high-tech phone that transmits pictures, kept hidden by a student named Trish Randall (TRACY ALISON WALSH). Working with the grainy images that Trish surreptitiously sends to her mother's phone, the agents surmise that the kids were transferred to a dark, airless storage area.

... 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.

Format: DVD
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.

Originally, I viewed this episode when it first aired back in 2004. I have been studying and observing child development, psychology, and sociology for several years in part for a future career as a child and family therapist. I must say that this is an episode every parent, caregiver, school official, and therapist who care for or work with children ages 8-17 years must view to understand some of the main causes behind modern-day childhood bullying as well; the nightmare results that occur for all parties involved. Additionally, I applaud the writers, producers, and cast for giving an honest portrayal on a sensitive and controversial subject. Furthermore, I recommend viewing this episode with children ages 10 and older (depending on the child's cognitive development), while putting aside some open-ended questions to ask your child afterwards (e.g., "So, what did you think about the children who bullied that boy?" or "Do you think the boy deserved the hazing he received? If yes/no, why?" or "Have you known someone in school who has bullied others or who has been bullied? If yes, how?"). Questions like such can give you a keen insight to what your child knows about and has access toward witnessing different types of bullying in his school.(Some food for thought; the U.S. department of Health and Human Services (HHS) states that on any given day, more than 160,000 elementary, middle, and high school students will miss school as a result of bullying by peers on or around school grounds. Additionally, out of more than 85% of students who witness bullying in or around their schools, unfortunately, under 10% do something to prevent bullying either to himself or someone else.) Don't believe school officials who say that bullying is "under control" or "doesn't exist" in their school. Ask the teachers and counselors if they agree; or your children for that matter. I'm certain they will have a much different story to tell...
