Without a Trace focuses on the Missing Persons Unit of the FBI in New York City. This group of five headed by Jack Malone (Anthony Lapaglia) must find out who the missing person was to find out where they might be. They work backwards in time and forward in a race to find the missing person before 48 hours are up. Because after 48 hours chances of finding them alive are very slim.

This show is without a doubt one of the best on TV. I happened to stumble upon the reruns and was watching because I thought Anthony Lapaglia looked familiar. Of course I was thinking of Simon Moon from Frasier. By the time I could get my husband to confirm my suspicions I was hooked on this show. It is so well written and filmed that you can't watch and not become addicted.

The cast of this show is great. These five actors will make you forget your watching TV and make you believe your part of the team trying to solve the case. The writing is wonderful. In addition the way the show is filmed will leave you wanting more. I just can't say enough about this show. It has been awhile since I've been so excited about a TV show.

This DVD package is so great. The quality is excellent. And the extras are very entertaining. You go behind the scenes to learn how the show was developed and how the cast was picked. Then you can learn how the sets were made and discover that they actually have an ex-FBI man as an advisor to make the show look and feel real. This is just great. This shows the interest and pride the producers take in the show to go to the length of having an advisor help in making it real. I think this has a great deal to do with why the show is such a success and seems real.

This DVD is a must have for any fan of Without a Trace. It will provide some of the most entertaining hours on TV.

From the world of Jerry Bruckheimer comes a smartly written, smartly acted, and altogether intriguing drama. The series follows a group of specialized FBI agents through the time they learn of a missing person through the time that person is found (alive or dead). Periodically, subtitles pop up to let the viewer know how much time has passed, and as the hours tick by, the sense of urgency grows.

With a cast led by the great Anthony LaPaglia, this is well-written and well-acted television. On DVD, the episodes run about 40 minutes each.

Without a doubt, WITHOUT A TRACE is one of the finest dramatic series on the air. Executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer who helms the also excellent CSI trio brings us a cast made in heaven, superb storylines, and some gutwrenching episodes. Anthony LaPaglia is superb as head agent Jack Malone of the FBI's Missing Persons unit. Considered rather a maverick man, who sometimes bends the rules in the name of justice, LaPaglia brings a strength and sensitivity to his role that makes Jack Malone one of the best leading roles on t.v. He is given fine support by Poppy Montgomery as Samantha Slade, a lovely young agent whose cynicism belies her innate compassion; Marianne Jean-Baptiste is Vivian Johnson, the stoic team member who acts as the voice of logic and reason and whose delivery is so natural, she doesn't seem like she's acting; Enrique Murciano as the Latino, whose has a sharp sense of humor and a quick temper at times; and Eric Close is Martin Fitzgerald, the Deputy Director's son who wants to prove to his team he is a good agent and not just his father's puppet. Along with superior camerawork, editing and music, the series has given us some marvelous guest performances from actors like Charles S. Dutton (who won an Emmy for his role as the distraught father desperately searching for his missing son); Tim Matheson, Mackenzie Astin, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Tom Irwin, Veronica Cartwright, Lawrence Pressman...they're have been a ton of really good performances from their guest stars.

All in all, WITHOUT A TRACE is gripping, superb entertainment!

Although, as far as I remember (hey, its been almost 12 years since this show first premiered!), I did not start watching Without a Trace when it first aired on CBS in September of 2002 and instead, I only got into the show, later on (at least a few years later) after seeing reruns in syndication, it is now one of my (definitely in the top 6) ABSOLUTE FAVORITE shows on TV!!

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (who also produced Cold Case -- another show that, if I recall correctly, I also started watching around the same time) Without a Trace is about the cases of the New York City FBI field office's Missing Persons Unit (which, AFAIK does NOT exist in real-life, as missing persons cases are NOT usually handled by the FBI, but rather local police departments -- except in cases of ransom, kidnapping across state lines, or child abduction) as well as, to a lesser degree, the personal lives of the FBI agents on this squad.
