So this is only a one season show(if it lasts that long I mean) ?
I enjoyed it but cannot see how they'll make a whole season of this premise... or even more seasons. Time will tell, I suppose.
However ... this article explains nore about why thay chose to do it this way and what "limited series"means.
Hostages: How Much Life Is in CBS' New "Limited Series"? - Today's News: Our Take | TVGuide.com
EDIT ... By the way, the full pilot episode is online at CBS. They are also calling Duncan a rogue FBI agent doing the wrong thing for the right reasons.
I can't help but think this series and the timing has something to do with the Affordable Care Act. Maybe.
There were spots that pushed my buttons last night, but I think I'll hang in there. For example. If the Dr. is under suspicion, then wouldn't they be following her around and notice when she left the hospital building to go outside and sit in the car with an FBI agent? Wouldn't that seem odd? And if someone took a polygraph and then walked out of the room and doubled over and grimmiced as in pain, I would think they had something to hide, no? lol
Does anyone think they really killed the nurse or just abducted her until the thing is over?
I hadn't planned on watching this. The subject matter just didn't seem like it would do it for me.
But on Saturday I accidently taped it, thinking there was a 2 hour 48Hours on. I loved it!!
Unfortunately it's on at the same time as Castle, so I taped it yesterday. That's what I'll be doing. I was planning to tape The Blacklist, especially because of James Spader. But with my watch-one-tape-one thing, one of them has to be cut. The Blacklist is the cut.:sad
Help! What happened in the last ten minutes or so? Both hubby and I fell asleep! I saw up to the part where the doctor and surgical nurse were talking and the doctor told the nurse that maybe she should admit that she made a mistake.
The nurse is understandably upset and she leaves a note on the Dr.'s desk asking her to meet her after work for drinks at this bar. In the meantime, Head FBI kidnapper questions Dr. and it is determined that finger prints on the drug room will somehow implicate the Dr. and it is determined that the investigation into the matter MUST be shut down.
So, the black FBI kidnapper agent shows up flirting with the nurse at the bar, before the Dr. arrives. The nurse and black FBI Agent leave together. The Dr. is late and the nurse not at the bar when she arrives, so she goes to the nurse's house to make sure she's okay. No one comes to the door. While at the door, the Secret Service guy who is heading the investigation shows up to see the nurse. Dr. tells him nurse is not coming to the door. They leave.
When Dr. gets home, they are watching tv and it is announced that the nurse's car is found on a bridge with a suicide note inside. The nurse is no where to be found, presumably she is dead in the river.
Dr. freaks out and lashes out at the head FBI guy for killing her friend, but he turns it around and says that she is the one who killed that nurse, because she failed to get her to confess to administering the improper medication to the President. I'm not sure if they really killed the nurse or not. They may be holding her, but to make the scheme work, it would seem they had to kill her, because if she is released later, it would open up a whole big can of worms.
I'm also wondering if the FBI agents are going to frame it so the death of the President falls on the doctor. With their skills and access, they could plant all kind of things that couldl make it look like the Dr. was a lone assassin, thereby, preventing a full investigation. They may be totally lying about walking away and no on ever knowing. I'm ready for a twist.
I don't know what is SO important that there is a mission is to kill the POTUS ... and they are holding a family hostage under threat of death in order to accomplish this ... and they may have killed an innocent young woman/nurse.
Do we know and I missed something?
