Basically, the quicker Hostages embraces its stupid side, and lets Dylan McDermott shoot at people, the better it will be.

Hostages Episode 13: Fight or Flight
This episode starts with Duncan taking his own wife “hostage” after she found out about the assasination plot last week. This is one of those times when the show could have taken the time to explain to Nina directly the situation as it is, with all its dangers, instead of dragging the situation around longer than necessary, until Kramer had time to come by an explain a bit more to her. Obviously not enough, since she ended up escaping the house, with Sawyer, and being followed by both the FBI and NSA. And now she is being held by Colonel Blair.

In the meantime, Archer has decided to get rid of Sandrine. But first they wanted to find out what her plan was to kill them (as loose ends for the assasination plot). We don't know if Sandrine had any intetion to let the bombs off or not to ...Read more

Hostages: Season 2, Anyone?

(Spoilers ahead!)

Not wanting to give away what really happened in the two hour finale, I'd like to discuss what you thought about the way the season/series ended.

The way things ended up surely left some loose ends hanging over the cliff, so to speak. From what we've got from comments here in the community, apparently Duncan Carlisle turned himself in at the very end of the season finale. That alone opens for a follow up.

  • What crime is he surrendering for committing?
  • Will he do time or just be relocated? Promoted?

More than arguing what was good and bad with the first season of Hostages, let's hear what you think of a follow up season.

  • Can it be done?
  • What will it cover?

This short piece is just a taste of the full reviews that are coming. The way CBS ended the season surely opens ...Read more

Episode 9: "Loose Ends"
The plots keep pointing out to a lot more people being “hostages”, not just the Sanders. Many of the players we see, they are coerced in a way or another to act the way they do. Not even the Chief of Staff was in command of the situation, as we just got confirmed in this episode. He was unexpectedly killed after confessing to Secret Service Agent Hoffman about the assassination plan. Together with poor Hoffman, who was smart enough to be in the right tracks. It feels as if Colonel Blair is the one leading the coup right now, together with the infamous sister that just poisoned the Chief of Staff, and that we have found out is Blair's lover. But are they in charge? The episode was strong showing how large the conspiracy is, but still really short in giving tips about the President's story and everyone ...Read more
