  • A father and daughter disappear during their regular morning routine.

    Greg Pritchard, loving father and husband, disappears with his daughter one morning. On the surface, he's the quintessential all-american, even coaching a little league team. The deeper the FBI team digs into his past, the more they realize that underneath the surface is a man no one knew. This episode plays along very slowly at the beginning, and then picks up the pace at a speed that almost seems haphazardly put together. Although the plot is clear, the events leading to the climax left me....well, wanting more. And not in a good way. Much of the episode is focused on Sarah Pritchard, the wife worried about her husband and child. The script did the actress no favors. Her character was so annoying and abrasive, I almost rooted for the husband to leave her. She came across as a shrew, hindering investigation and completely uncooperative. She redeemed herself a bit at the end, after it was found out that Greg was in the witness protection program, after which he was enrolled when he was a innocent bystander in a murder trial. Although "Midnight Sun" was not completely horrible, I would not recommend anyone who has never watched this show to begin with this episode. Without a Trace is much better than this episode.
