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.

October 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Inventive, involving and addicting.

October 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.

October 9, 2018 | Full Review…

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

October 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.

October 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.
