Don't Miss The Missing; Christmas Comes Via Northpole

The worst part is not knowing. And while eight years of devastating uncertainty have destroyed Tony Hughes's life, this grieving father's resolve never weakens in the relentless hunt for his beloved son Oliver, who vanished in an instant on a summer night in 2006.

Premiering Saturday (9/8c) on Starz, which is on a high-quality roll of late, The Missing is an excellent eight-part British mystery reminiscent of The Killing and Broadchurch in its brooding anguish. The feeling of disoriented panic is intensified by staging the boy's tragic disappearance during a family vacation in France (filmed in beautiful Brussels), where the parents can't speak the language — and where the revelry surrounding the ongoing World Cup soccer games provides a jarring contrast to their fear and despair.

All in all, this has been the ...

Question: All in all, this has been the best cable summer ever. I even had to write up a daily schedule of cable shows on each night because there were too many to remember them all! A couple of points, though. First, I was just getting into the new season of Kyle XY when they announced "only two more episodes until the season finale." What, seven or eight episodes are a season now? I know some cable series only do 12 episodes instead of the normal 13 (which I hate), but eight? They promised more "in 2008." Splitting up a larger run into two short ones is annoying and feels like "television interruptus." Note to cable networks: I need more than eight episodes of a good series to be fully satisfied. Similarly, I know the BBC does short runs of a show, but I was watching Jekyll on BBC On Demand and it ended after five episodes (granted, the last was extended and could count as two). I was enjoying this new take on an old story and especially liked the way James Nesbitt was portraying the ... read more
