New show started three weeks ago starring Chris Noth and Danny Pino.  It's like the old Without a Trace combined with Breakout Kings.  It's on WGN, so maybe people will not be able to see it.  I think it's really good.

I've watched from the start and I'm staying for now. The cast is OK. 

The premise is a little bothersome: civilian Kick is allowed to carry a gun (yes, she has a license), go in the field with the other agent by knocking down doors, interview witnesses, picking bank vault locks and engaging violent criminals. But I guess the show needs to find a way to get her in the action instead of staying on the plane and consult. 

Also, her friend was picked up off the street by the FBI and immediately granted access to their computer system?!?!?!

Chris Noth's character must have pissed off his superiors to not have better, qualified agents at his disposal and had to lean hard on these two civilians to help find missing people.

I've seen the first season. It was on in Canada a few months ago. I liked it enough I would watch a second season if there is one. It wasn't great. But it held my interest.

We're both enjoying this series very much.  I wish we'd see Chris Noth in the action more, but that's not that important.  We just watched the one about the pregnant women being abducted and I never once suspected who the bad guy w

I wish they would publicize the Canadian TV shows more in the USA.  Back in the day I really liked Motive and the one about swat team (can't remember title, but it had a cute bald Canadian actor)

Also seen (they showed it all in the UK) and enjoyed all the (13?) episodes. Chris North is always worth watching.

I guess this explains why IMDB has reviews from a year ago.

Filmed in and around Pittsburg, broadcast first in Australia, then France, the UK, and I think Germany and possibly elsewhere.  About a year after all of those it finally gets picked up by a US channel - WGN.

I think the premise was interesting enough but ultimately this is just a regular procedural. Whereas it should be about Kick, what she went through, solving the mystery of her abduction, etc., it's just about investigating crimes and oh, yeah, one of the investigators was abducted as a child. I dont't dislike it but it's a letdown for me. I think they could've done a lot more with Elizabeth Smart Joins the FBI than this.

The show is interesting.  I adore Kick and her relationship to everyone.  Her past messed her up enough to really effect how she sees the world but she did make some sort of life even befor North’s characters re enters her life.  Yes it is ultimately a procedural and the show could do more with Kick and her past but I enjoy watching this.

That Canadian show was “Flashpoint” and the actor was Hugh Dillon. I really liked it too!

I do like this show and find the stories interesting to watch. I’m a Chris Noth fan, so I would probably watch even if it was terrible, which I don’t think it is. I look forward to it each week.

What part of the FBI budget pays for that plane?

The same one that pays for the always-ready Gulfstream on Criminal Minds.  Wheels up in 30!

I had to laugh a bit when Noth gave them all a briefing on the case of the week, and then said, "Let's move."  I was hoping one of them would reply "Boss, we're in an airplane at 30,000 feet."

Since Kick made sure to mention the network of her kidnapper this episode, any bets that the new potential boyfriend is actually a bad guy?  He seemed to know a lot about her.

Another cameo by bottom feeding paparazzi dude.  He will play a part along the way, guaranteed.

How hard did the car hit that guy that his cell phone was totally obliterated?  Side note - it's not necessary to check behind yourself when you're being chased by the cops.  They're still behind you, trust me.

Great investigative idea:  Okay, millions of Sabrina fans, has anyone seen a white van in the last hour or so?

I like what the show is doing with Kick and her mom.  The first episode I wasn’t really sure what to make of mom.  I was pretty sure she used the kidnapping for her own needs.  Just like mom and dad did for the singer on this episode.  But it turns out things were hella more complicated.

And who the hell would start a Beth Foster fan site?

i really liked the investigation idea.  Why not use social media for good?  We have talk show hosts who ask their fans to do something and 24 hours later it’s done.  Why not have her tweet to her fans to spot a van?

I began watching this show on 5USA (UK) for Lee Tergesen. I saw him in the promos. I'm liking it so far. I love Kick, the actress plays her very well. At first I was annoyed with Bishop, he seemed too pushy and know-it-all, but I'm slowly warming to him. I just hope there is no romance with Kick.

The set-up is farfetched, but I'm willing to go with it because the show has been enjoyable.
