The major problem that most people have with this series stem from the false advertising associated with it. We were told multiple times that there would be complete answers by the end of summer, and let's just say that there were far more questions than answers, missing plot lines, and plenty of set up for some kind of sequel. Now, we look online and we find out that this was not a "mini-series" as it was billed, but instead, a first season. Add to this the fact that the show was often aired at different times each week, and that NBC completely missed airing one whole episode on TV, and you have one of the most messed-up releases of a new show that I've ever seen. That answers a few of the problems that can be attributed to the show, but certainly not all.

That being said, I was one of the few who tuned in weekly, and who saw the missing episode, and I have to say, I found this series rather intriguing. It works like a combination of "the Prisoner" and "Ten Little Indians" by Agatha Christie, or perhaps you're aware of the movie "Identity", which shared many of the little idiosyncrasies. Basically, it's a bunch of people who are kidnapped and put in a 1950's town, and you have to figure out just what's going on. Various obstacles are thrown their way, from the town randomly shutting down rooms and gassing the inhabitants, to the arrival of six body bags, which was supposed to cause them to start to figure out that only one of them was to be left alive at the end of all this. They try to escape, they try to fight back a bit, but we slowly see "the Program" slipping in and taking over for many of the characters.

There are some things that I still struggle with, even after watching the finale.

I was in love with this show from the first crazy episode. It has layers and layers of mysteries that are impossible to solve and leaves you wanting more. In my opinion, it wasn't given a chance to succeed. Several episodes were preempted and one was never shown at all. In a show with so much action and intrigue, this is a fatal mistake. This is just another sad casualty of NBC's chopping block.

This show was so good it was scary. I have never gotten into a show so quickly or thoroughly. Unfortunately from what I am reading, it may have been the one season. I was worried about that when they kept moving the time slot and it ended up on Saturday night but I followed it whatever slot they moved it to and never missed an episode. When they moved it to Saturday, I bought the Season Pass from Amazon Video On Demand because I was afraid if I didn't I wouldn't get to see the end. Unlike other blowhards that were upset that "all" their questions were not answered, it just made me want to tune in to see the next season. I hope there is one and if NBC doesn't pick it up again, it would be a wonderful addition to SyFy, USA or TNT. I would hate to see something this good go by the wayside due to the shortsightedness of network executives.

This episode was unaired on the series and filled in a lot of the blanks/questions when I watched it. I had tivoed the last 3 shows of the series and just got around to watching them, quite a few weeks after the end of the series. I was partway through the next-to-last show when I realized there was a missing episode. Also, the numbers shown by the network were different than on Amazon, too. According to the network numbers, episode 12 was the one missing. But take my word for it - episode 11 shown on Amazon is the missing episode and episodes 12 and 13 were the final episodes both shown on August 28, 2010,even though the network shows them as 13 and 14. It was well worth the $1.99 to me to be able to watch the whole show as it was meant to be watched.

Five stars for a great premise and plot. But man the acting is horrible! We were laughing through some of the scenes because the delivery
of the lines was so bad. Oh well. We'll keep watching. I love the premise. I wouldn't put it past the CIA to do this kind of stuff. Wouldn't you
know they'd stick a xenophobic gun crazy violent racist in the group. Some people just don't understand communitarianism. You have to work
as a group or you're screwed.

I watched the whole 13 episodes in 1 weekend, I just loved it and I thing the finale is very appropriate for a Mystery Drama. The thing about this TV Show is that is not the regular US production, the show was financed by 2 major TV chains from Mexico and Italy and filmed in Mexico, and sold to the market in several countries, in USA NBC ended up acquiring the rights to broadcasted, I guess it was an experiment that in my opinion turned out extremely well. Got love the mystery throughout the series!

Persons Unknown is absolutely the worst type of television show there is. I say this, because over the course of 13 episodes, this show went from being one of the most clever and imaginative things I've seen to being complete and utter garbage. If that wasn't bad enough, this mini-series had high hopes, and even though they knew the show was a one shot deal, the producers actually had the nerve to end the whole thing on a cliffhanger, something that really bothers me to no end.

The show begins admirably, with seven strangers from all walks of life, waking up alone, in a brand new, but abandoned hotel. After coming together, they realize they are in a fully functional town, the only problem is, that they're the only ones there. As they explore, they find that they are confined to this town by an impenetrable barrier. At the same time, a reporter looking into the mysterious disappearance of one of the victims, uncovers a cover up, one that could cost him everything.

For the first four episodes, this show was incredible, the kind of show that had you on the edge of your seat, craving as much knowledge as you can find. If the show had continued on this mysterious path, following the strangers attempts at escape and distrust of one another, it would have been phenomenal, but that's not what happens. After the four initial episodes, the show starts to get weird, to the point of being absurd, and those mysterious story lines, became as obvious as the nose on your face.

Jason Wiles stars and will always have my admiration for portraying Bosco on the long running cop drama, Third Watch. Here he plays the un-elected, mysterious leader of the group, who no one is really sure of.
