Using the vast resources of their bureau, the team, lead by Agent Jack Malone, race against time in the tight 72 hour window after a disappearance while hope for a recovery is still typically possible.

Goofs

Since the inception of the agency, FBI agents travel in pairs when interview subjects. This is both to have a witness to the interview as well as for protection in case unexpected things occur. Multiple times during the show, single agents are shown talking with subjects alone, even in their homes or places unfamiliar to the agents. See more »

Ups and downs
18 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

First of all, to all the people who wanted Roselyn Sanchez out of the picture, your wish has been fulfilled. It seems that WAT will not return for an eighth season.

Personally, I thought she wasn't that bad. She even won an award for her acting in this series. Has anyone ever thought that the way she acted was maybe the way her character was supposed to be? Lifeless, cold, emotionless, like a real FBI agent. I had no problem with her accent either. If anyone was mumbling on that show it was rather Anthony Lapaglia! Anyway, the first season was a little shaky with actors finding their characters. The second season was great. The third season had too much emphasis on character personal development and unrealistic involvement with each other. Almost to the point of having the impression of watching a bad soap opera.

And it went downhill from there, until the last seasons where the writing got a bit better, but not as good as the early shows.

Well all this is academic, since we've seen the very last of Jack, Sam, Vivian, Danny, and Martin. Oh, and I almost forgot, Elena.

In my humble opinion, Marianne Jean-Baptiste was the best actress throughout her 159 episodes, even though we didn't see her character's private side as much as the others.

My two cents on it.
