While I had heard of the series “Missing”, featuring the talented Ashley Judd, I never got the chance to see it. That all changed when I received the 3-disc Missing: The Complete First Season on DVD, recently released on 6/12. This spy/espionage meets mom series keeps you on your toes throughout, leaving each commercial break and episode with anxiety-filled cliffhangers. Some parts are predictable but others are completely shocking, with twists and turns plentiful along the way.
There were a couple of parts that we had to cover our daughter’s eyes but most scenes were fairly mild, given that most spy movies do feature good guy vs bad buy fights. If you enjoy action, suspense, and a bit of mystery, Missing is a roller coaster you don’t want to miss. Too bad the series final also ends in a cliffhanger with no second season in the way. Either way, it’s a great 10 episodes to own!
After Becca Winstone’s son disappears while overseas for a summer internship, she takes it upon herself to travel to Europe to track him down. It soon becomes clear that Becca is no ordinary soccer mom, but a former CIA agent deactivated after the devastating death of her husband. If she wants to find her son alive, Becca will have to rely on old friends…and old enemies…thus reopening old wounds. Her resourcefulness, skill and determination will be put to the test – but a mother’s love knows no limits.
