  • An ambiguously Asian American girl (I think the writers were going for Korean and something went terribly awry) goes missing, and the team works hard to unravel the mysteries surrounding her and her ethnically-challenged family.

    At least Law and Order tries to accurately portray the cultures that are written into their series. Well, I'll give Without a Trace some credit since they didn't bust out any Jackie Chan jokes... Oh wait... Okay, so at least the actors didn't do bad kungfu movie parodies while squinting their eyes and dancing around in kimono? Seriously, I'm usually a pretty big fan of Without a Trace, but this episode disgusted me. I couldn't even appreciate the plot twists. It was like watching a presentation of Hamlet while a bunch of minstrels in black-face paraded around the background: i.e,. a bit amusing, very insulting, and completely inappropriate.
