OK, so this is another ABC TV show that I liked that’s been cancelled. I’m bummed, but at least you can view and own the season of MISSING on DVD. Sure, MISSING is much like the feature film TAKEN from a few years ago, but Ashley Judd put her own touch into the show and I loved her intensity in it. There was enough espionage in addition to the romance and relationships to keep me interested.
Now we’ll never know now what happened to Judd’s character – she disappeared in the season ending episode – but I do not that we’re losing some quality TV.
Ashley Judd plays a widowed mother whose son convinces her to allow him to do a summer internship in Europe. She reluctantly agrees and it’s just days into his trip that her son disappears. Winstone travels to Europe to find him and it’s not long into the show that we find out that Winstone’s hiding a secret past and now she’s wondering of that past is what’s behind the disappearance of her only child.
Judd place a fiercely determine mother who will stop at nothing to find her son. She uses every contact and every skill her former job gave her to find him.
