The Missing - Entire Series - Spoilers

I must admit I'm a little bit in love with James Nesbitt and would watch him in just about anything (not sure about the upcoming Hobbit trilogy). I'm enjoying this show even though there is none of his quirky humor in it. It's such a tragic and sad story, but even so, I eagerly await the next installment.

I really should have waited and binge watched the whole thing.

Anyone else tuning in?

I missed the pilot showing, and just recorded it today. Haven't decided if I want to watch each eps, or binge.

Sounds like a good show!

Isn't this a remake of a remake of a remake?

"Upcoming" Hobbit trilogy ? There's only one left I think.

He's in a new show in the UK that just started this week - Babylon.

It's all slightly sad because all this new stuff probably means that Monroe is not coming back.

I'm into this show as well. I agree that this would be perfect for binge watching.

Watched Episode 6 last night. It felt like it could be the final episode, but there is still three more to come.

This series just gets more compelling as it goes along, with little cliff-hangers at the end of each episode.

You really have to pay attention as the dialogue is in a variety of accents (English, Irish, French, Russian) and it may be hard to remember who is who as the timeline skips forward and back 8 years to the original crime and investigation and the present day, but it is labelled each time there is a time jump in the story. That is why it is better to binge watch, to keep the details in mind.

Thoughts on finale? I liked it. Is there a season 2 planned?

Looks like they did pick up the series for a season 2. But it will be a whole new story and new characters, etc...

My wife and I watched the two remaining ones and I guess I will have to hold my tongue until the rest play. Overall a well done series I just don't know if this one series can justify my Starz subscription though.

I'm having a hard time with this one because none of the eps are coded as new and there are no episode numbers. My SP is only picking them up sporadically so I've had to manually keep up by just recognizing (or not) the names of each episode. I believe I've seen six so far and there is a 'new' one coming up on 1/3.

Some of the back and forth stuff has left me feeling rather confused.

Wowsa. One of the best series I've seen recently, and given the quality of tv these days that's really saying something. Great use of dramatic irony with the story continually jumping between present day and eight years previous.

The acting was superb, with James Nesbitt a standout as the boy's tormented, obsessed father. He's amazing, heartbreaking, and deserves to be nominated for every acting award possible. Highly recommended.

James Nesbitt for best actress?

I just finished the last two episodes. Interesting final scene.

I am confused. How did Vincent know what happened so he could tell the reporter? They never told that connection? Or is that left open ambiguously?

Haven't read the thread but I heard such negative comments about the finale that I avoided watching it. Now I am 6 episodes in and think it's been great. I fear the finale
