  • Missing teacher who is not so missing at all

    8.0
    Everyone's favorite teacher goes missing and to be honest, I would have not even suspected that kind of story behind that. And maybe it is good as when the story gets so turned upside down and those people who you at first not even suspect that they might be involved, not only be involved but masterplanned that all, then that is just a wow.



    I liked the way the story was build, the multiply things that might have happened - like the narcotic, then the boat, then the father.. but in the end, that all did not matter. It was a weird development but very unexpected.moreless

    This is my first episode of this show. I wanted to see it because at the moment I am following Christhoper Gorhams career. And I'm glad I did. This episode was very interesting, exciting and a good twist. I like the theme of star crossed lovers. And even if I havn't seen any other episodes of this show I could fast get into it, and felt that I could understand the main characters. They put the story up so you could think: Aha! that's what happend! And then they twisted it brillantly so you went all: Woot! What happend there? I really good show, with nice scenes and overall just a good production. I'm gonna see all of those episodes!moreless

    This was a very good episode. I loved the team work. Especially Sam's determination. Sam was attached to the girl, and desperately wanted to find her. She argued that she was just a kid. She was affected by this case because of her past. Like the girl, Sam ran away when she was her age. However, she never tried to run away a second time because her mother went looking for her. That was enough to keep her from trying it again. This episode was full of twists & turns, and I didn't expect anything like that to happen. Everything left you guessing until the very end.moreless

      Martin: No direct sunlight, right?

      This is an inside-joke of the actual homage for Poppy Montgomery's character. The name of the character Samantha Spade is an homage to Samuel Spade, the main detective character of the 1920s novel The Maltese Falcon written by Dashiell Hammett. He was later immortalized in the 1941 film of the novel being played by Humphrey Bogart.
