    I have the 10 episodes of Missing sitting on my Tivo and I'm trying to decide if I should watch it. Without giving anything specific about the show away, can you tell me if the main story line wraps itself up by the end of the season?

    I really don't want to waste 7.5 hours watching a show that going to be open ended and is already cancelled. I don't need every single little thread tied up completely but I really don't want to bother if the main plot line remains unresolved by the end of the season/series.

    Thanks

    Hard to say without spoilering, but I will say this:

    The season's story arc ends cleanly.

    Character arcs are a different story, but there is definitely a resolution to the main plot of the first season.

    You'll get rather good closure on pretty much everything if you stop watching the finale about a minute before it otherwise ends. They threw in a cliffhanger at the very end of the episode to start the next season. It's not that major and easily ignored given the rest of the show, but if you want a completely clean series, keep that in mind.

    Yes, the main plotline is wrapped up. They did try and add a twist, obviously to set up another season which won't happen, but as others have said, easily ignored.

    That works for me. I'll probably give it a shot sometime this summer. I can always just pretend to disregard the last few minutes.

    Yeah. It was wrapped up with a nice little, syrupy bow at the end, excepting the last minute or two. You'll definitely know when you can turn it off. There's a very obvious scene change at that point.

    For those that have seen it, my wife and I explained the cliffhanger this way since it won't be coming back for another season:
    She was playing a practical joke. They cut the camera off right before she jumped out from around the corner and said "gotcha". That was our way of keeping it as a happy ending.

    I had a separate interpretation for my own happy ending:
    She faked herself gone so she could have a relationship with Giancarlo who she really wanted to be with.
