Editorial Reviews

"You can't save everyone, Jack," a child molester taunts FBI Agent Jack Malone before hurling himself out a window. But the tireless efforts of Malone (Anthony LaPaglia in his Golden Globe-winning role) and the members of the elite Missing Persons Squad to do just that are what make Without a Trace so compelling. Each episode is a race against time to find a person who has mysteriously vanished (their slow fade from the screen has lost none of its unsettling power). In some of this sophomore season's most gripping cases, people and events are not what they seem. In "Confidence," the task force discovers that a missing wealthy socialite has a seriously shady past and keeps "bad company." The past haunts the present in "Risen," in which Vivian (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) gets a new lead on a four-year-old case (Kirstie Alley is excellent as the missing girl's distraught mother), and in "Copycat," a sociopath with a grudge against Jack (see "Are You Now or Have You Ever Been" from the first season) is involved in a disappearance with disturbing similarities to a 12-year-old case.

The procedural aspect of Without a Trace is fascinating as Jack and company employ advanced profiling techniques in their investigations. Over the course of the season, episodes also deftly flesh out the characters. Samantha (Poppy Montgomery) struggles with the psychological repercussions of being shot in the season 1 cliffhanger. Taylor (Enrique Murciano) is revealed to have a brother who is in jail. Samantha, who had an affair with Jack, is drawn to Martin (Eric Close). Jack learns that his father (Martin Landau in an Emmy Award-winning performance) has Alzheimer's. He also weighs a move to Chicago to save his rocky marriage. Fulfilling the promise of the auspicious first season, Without a Trace has established itself as among the best-written and -acted (not for nothing did the series earn a Best Casting for TV award from the Casting Society of America) hours on television. And without commercials to break the tension, it's an even more intense experience on DVD. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

WITHOUT A TRACE is a fast-paced procedural drama about the Missing Persons Squad of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The sole responsibility of the special task force is to find missing persons by applying advanced psychological profiling techniques. The team reconstructs a "Day of Disappearance" timeline that details every minute of the 24 hours prior to the disappearance, following one simple rule: learn who the victim is in order to learn where the victim is.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was starting to wonder ... December 14, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
... 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.

For the curious, here is the episode list, first aired 09/25/03-05/20/04.

The Bus





Our Sons And Daughters

A Tree Falls

Trip Box

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent as ever February 12, 2007
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 but without the extras and 5 minutes shorter per episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Sophmore Season March 14, 2007
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."

4.0 out of 5 stars Without a Trace-Second Season May 22, 2007
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as intriguing as season 1, but still a keeper April 12, 2007
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...
