Kidnapped: The Complete Series

Knapp (Jeremy Sisto – Waitress, A Lot Like Love) is a man with a past who is an expert at returning kidnapping victims. When multi-millionaire Conrad Cain's son is kidnapped it seems on the surface to be merely another grab for money off a rich parent. When Knapp starts his search he realizes that there is much more to it.

I am not sure why NBC gave up on this excellent series so quickly. I am doubly astounded that not many people watched it. It has that type of CSI and 24 vibe to it that is so popular nowadays. I think its failure is a sign of NBC woes viewerwise…it is no longer the 'must see' television station.

Disc One:
Episode 1: Kidnapped: Leopold Cain (Will Denton – Kinsey), son of multimillionaire Conrad Cain (Timothy Hutton – The Good Shepherd, The Last Mimzy), is kidnapped on his way to school. The Cains hire Knapp, an expert in returning those who have been kidnapped.

Episode 2: Special Delivery: Knapp butts heads with the FBI on the case. A package arrives at the Cain household which indicates that Alice (Lydia Jordan – The Secret Lives of Dentists, Gods and Generals), the Cains' daughter, is also at risk.

Episode 3: Sorry, Wrong Number: The Cains try to keep up appearances so they go forward with their annual charity ball.

Episode 4: Number One With a Bullet: Leopold's bodyguard, Virgil (Mykelti Williamson – Lucky Number Slevin, Ali), is in bad shape physically. The kidnappers continue on with their plan.
