Tv Season Info

This mystery-drama series follows seven strangers who are abducted and locked in hotel rooms under constant surveillance as they try to escape, build friendships and discover betrayals. Escaping isn't all it's cracked up to be, though, as the group are constantly tested, often put in life or death situations. Gerald Kyd stars as Mark Renbe, a reporter searching for his missing ex-wife, who happens to be one of the abductees.

Critic Reviews for Persons Unknown Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

Persons Unknown isn't built around an ensemble of characters who are engaging in their own right, beyond the mildly provocative situation they're in.

We feel only a marginal bond with the characters - which is presumably the main reason someone who isn't a hard-core sci-fi fan would watch.

A series that doesn't give viewers enough reason to care in its premiere episode.

Jun 7, 2010 | Full Review…

The premiere is heavy on set-up and light on action. It's more about mood than plot. Whether that will hold up over 13 hours is questionable.

Let's just go ahead declare all Persons Unknown as dead, stuck in the Hotel Purgatory. Get a room someplace else.

It would help if the dialogue wasn't so clunky or if the actors didn't utter it as if they were auditioning for their local production of And Then There Were None.

Not only are none of the seven characters particularly interesting, they simply fail to react realistically to their bizarre circumstances.

Jun 7, 2010 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

This new suspense drama has promise.

Jun 7, 2010 | Full Review…

This workmanlike drama, for all its modern-day touches, has echoes of classic Agatha Christie country-house mysteries:
