Critic Reviews for Without a Trace Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8)

It's is a solid program, and ought to please CSI audiences -- and, in the process, launch the biggest threat to the dominance of NBC's ER.

Oct 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Inventive, involving and addicting.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Without a Trace is a slickly shot, competent series with a talented ensemble cast. It's not revolutionary or groundbreaking by any means, but it is a decent crime drama.

Oct 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Without a Trace unexpectedly provides an antidote to the current media crime-fighting frenzy.

Oct 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Though Without a Trace's producers have clearly made attempts to deepen the show's characters, the show itself, while dark, stays pretty close to the surface.

Oct 8, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The procedural approach is catchy. There's something irresistible about a forensic drama that hooks you with hints at the ending and works backward from there. This one's for the more squeamish sleuth.

Oct 9, 2018 | Full Review…

This is nothing to build a night around. Yet the cast is good, action is crisp, flashbacks are seamlessly interwoven and dialogue is terse and effective.

Oct 9, 2018 | Full Review…

While the plot will keep you guessing and the acting is quite good,... the set-up is kinda dopey.

Oct 9, 2018 | Full Review…

LaPaglia's grounded nobility and softly spoken charisma make him a perfect leading man for television and elevate his stock character -- an uncompromising, incorruptible boss -- to the pantheon of great TV cops.

Oct 8, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

As uneven as it is, the series is now showcasing some of the best acting on television.
