Watch Without a Trace

Current Mood: bouncy
Current Song: Joan by Butch Walker

One of my favorite current television programs is Without a Trace, which airs Thursday nights after CSI on CBS. Each episode follows a team of FBI agents as they attempt to find missing persons, reconstruct the day of disappearance, and learn about the lives of the victims and suspects. The show is wonderful for many reasons. It has beautiful score music, a unique soundtrack, eye-catching cinematography, strong acting, smart writing, realistic plots and stylistic editing. It offers both interesting story arcs and stand-alone episodes. It is an ensemble show brought to life by Anthony LaPaglia as Jack Malone, Poppy Montgomery as Samantha Spade, Enrique Murciano as Danny Taylor, Marianne Jean-Baptiste as Vivian Johnson, and Eric Close as Martin Fitzgerald.

Without a Trace airs Thursday nights at 10 PM PST/EST on CBS. Some CBS affiliates air the program at 9 PM PST/EST. Check your local listings. Season Three started September 23rd on CBS. Season One is airing in syndication Monday nights at 11 PM PST/EST on TNT. The Season One DVD is now available in stores and online.

Oooh, that's a good one. You come up with the best stuff ever. I do believe that might need to be put on a Dannycon in the near future.

Thank you for the compliment. Enjoy!

That reminds me, I have to try the PhotoShop disc. If it works, I can make you a Dannycon.

Donnie Darko is on my television right now! WOOSH!

Yay! I'm so glad you found the Donnie love. I was hoping you'd enjoy it as much as I do. It became an instant fave of mine after the first viewing.

Very much so. It is a rare gem. The bulk of my favorite films were released in the 40s and 50s.

That's a great film era.

I also meant to comment on the listening to Butch. I'm so glad you're diggin' his music. Joan is one of my favorite new songs.

That song is very powerful. Mixtape is my favorite track, hands down, on that CD.

You should see him perform it live. It makes a girl weepy. I wish he would release the song Stateline, it's about his child and is intensely emotional. He gets choked up when performing it, which may be why he hasn't released it. Love Mixtape!

Did they release an instrumental score CD for Donnie Darko?

See thread below - Look at the episode Jenah saw and my response!

There's a CD with the music from the movie which probably includes an instrumental score, but I don't own it yet, so I'm not sure.

Oooh, must reply to that one myself. Thanks. :)

Thanks for the info. I caught a few episodes of this last season as I tuned out of ER once again. I'm so over that show. I think the one episode that stands out in my mind is the episode where a young teenage boy had gone missing and Anthony LaPaglia's character [whom, as an actor I've adored since his incredible performance in "Betsy's Wedding" btw] and another detective finally found the boy in the backyard hanging himself. They got there just in time - but I was bawling my sad eyes out. The impression it made was haunting.

Anyway - I watched a few and I'm definitely going to be watching this Fall - and will try so hard to catch the syndicated eps too. Thanks so much for the heads up!!!
=)
My now must see's this season are: Alias, Without a Trace, Desperate Housewives, and Charmed [because it's fluff], Stargate Atlantis when I can.

Can't wait! Have you watched the trailer yet? It looks soooooo good.

Trailer looks phenomenal. . hence my urgency to watch all I can beforehand!

Without a Trace

You are welcome. The episode you watched is called Wannabe, and the other detective in the scene you mentioned was Danny Taylor, played by Enrique Murciano. Amazing episode, amazing show. Just wait until you see more episodes about Danny - he is a great character, and you'll cry some more. Anthony LaPaglia rocks, and his character, Jack, is outstanding.

echac: btvs a new day

Wannabe is one of my favorite WoaT episodes. It made me cry like a baby. The Danny tears kill me. Aside from my Danny love, the show is amazing and I have Little Willow to thank for getting me addicted. I can't wait for the DVDs and the syndication.

I'm with you on all of this seasons shows except Stargate Atlantis. I haven't found the love yet, but give me time and I will. :) I still love Charmed and it's really all about Rose and Holly for me. I just adore them.

Stargate Atlantis is fun - but it's one that I'll catch when I can - not MUST. You know?

I may download some episodes or something when I'm caught up on my FS watching.
