Critic Reviews for The Missing Season 1

Audience Reviews for The Missing: Season 1

  • Jul 08, 2021
    Quite gripping at first, as the plot and characters are established, but then it all fades away, back and forth between present and retrospect, but like there's a compulsion to make it complex, until it gets too convolted and it all nearly falls apart. Also some of the characters lose credibility and the acting performances vary steadily more in quality, with tendentious over acting or one-dimensionality character building. The total becomes divergent.
  • Mar 29, 2021
    Very underrated mystery series, good suspance from the beginning to the end. Not 5 stars cause of the last 10 minutes of the last episode...
  • Mar 28, 2021
    Compelling and haunting drama series with excellent performances manages to present a complex plot with many sub-plots as an intense personal drama and as a suspenseful thriller.
  • Dec 07, 2020
    Strong performances from Julien, the French detective, and also Frances O'Connor, but the usual ‘gormless open-mouthed confusion', alternating with ‘really angry' acting of James Nesbitt got really irritating after a couple of episodes. The plot was quite clever, although I found the willingness of every suspect to confess with little prompting, and for third parties to agree to help the investigation a little unlikely. I'll watch season 2, as there as some better actors in it.
  • May 15, 2020
    Well acted series and engrossing story line. Great!
  • May 01, 2020
    I had not watched this show until AFTER I watched Baptiste on PBS. I had to find out the backstory on Julian. Tchéky Karyo is an amazing actor. I was blown away by this whole series. I am suffering from post-series depression after watching both seasons. OUTSTANDING STORYTELLING!
  • Apr 16, 2020
    The ending was too vague and they made it look like it was perhaps continuing to another season when it wasn't.
  • Jun 11, 2019
    I really enjoyed the mystery of this season.
  • Aug 15, 2017
    Excellent, gripping series.
  • Apr 23, 2017
    I would take off more than half a star for the vague ending, but I realize their message is important without the conclusive ending I needed. Life is short, beaultiful, precious, unkind and unpredictable. Still, I do not like a cliffhanger when there is nothing to see next week or season. Grrrrr
