"1-800-MISSING" - Season One
Webmaster's Note: Since this page was built the series
has been renewed twice and is currently in season three. Season one was my favourite because it had a much better feel
to the story lines.
In the season's to follow most of the original cast in exception to Caterina Scorsone has moved on to other projects.
The show since then has turned in to what I feel is a 'Super Drama'. In other words, too much action, kick-em in the
ass, I'm invincible super agents as opposed to what it was in season one to which was more realistic.
The story lines for season two started out a little too lame and without much transition in to the main characters' growth
from season one to season two. Season one, she's a consultant that contemplates going to training. Beginning of
season two, she's a rookie agent thrown in to the action before she's done with training.
Needless to say, I was a little dissapointed with that development and nauseated at the change of character so quickly!
The show, based on the books 1-800-Where -Are-U by Meg Cabot , premiered in early
August with record network viewer ratings. It was originally contracted to air 13 episodes originally but after the
record ratings was tagged with 5 additional episodes rounding out the season with 18.
The series centers on a special missing persons task force formed by F.B.I. Special
Agent In Charge Alan Coyle, S.A.I.C., (Dean McDermott, Due South, Power Play, Open Range), after he instructs one of his agents Brooke Haslett
(Gloria Reuben, E.R., Homicide - Life of the Street), to investigate a college student, Jess
Mastriani's (Caterina Scorsone), psychic ability to find missing persons with visions she gets in her dreams.
A reluctant Jess can't understand herself but thinks it may have something to do
with being struck by lightning one night while trying to talk her brother off of a bridge during one of this dilusional episodes.
She finds herself being taken in to custody by Brooke to investigate further her ability.
After a brief testing session Jess finds herself in a meeting with Coyle and Haslett
discussing her abilities and that the F.B.I. could use her as a special consultant in finding missing persons. Brookes
skeptical and reluctant about this new team but is given no choice in the matter when Alan assigns her the position
and welcomes Jess to the F.B.I. The team adds up to Alan Coyle, S.A.I.C., agent Brooke Haslett, Sunny Estrada (Justina Machado), and Jess Mastriani.
I'm not going to spoil it any further. If you'd like, you can catch the show
on Saturday's at 10:00pm Eastern on Lifetime Network.
Since the last time I updated this site alot has happened with "1-800-MISSING".
The good news first. The show was renewed by Lifetime network for a second season with a firm 13 episode commitment.
The bad news: Gloria Reuben (Brooke Haslett), will not be returning for the renewel. Gloria chose on her own to
not continue with the show to further persue other projects in the business.
Although not quite accurate for actual investigations it's close enough. This is another show that really
catches my attention. The detail of each story line is enough to catch my attention and keep me there through out
the entire show.
More summary coming soon!
