TV show description:
In this suspense drama, Doctor Ellen Sanders (Toni Collette) is a premiere surgeon who’s scheduled to operate on the President (James Naughton). She’s thrust into a political conspiracy when her family is taken hostage by a rogue FBI agent, Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott). He orders her to assassinate the President by causing his death on the operating table.

Carlisle’s highly skilled accomplices include his brother-in-law Kramer (Rhys Coiro), whose loyalty to Carlisle will be tested; quick-tempered and intimidating Archer (Billy Brown), an ex-military man with a razor-sharp tongue; and the only woman involved, Sandrine (Sandrine Holt), a mysterious last-minute replacement to the team.

With Ellen’s family’s life in imminent danger, she faces an incomprehensible moral dilemma. Can she save her overbearing husband Brian (Tate Donovan), her secretive daughter Morgan (Quinn Shephard), and her not-so-innocent son Jake (Mateus Ward)?

Show started off slow, but now it is an absolute edge of seat thriller. Good writing has saved the show. Have to keep up with the series or you will be lost. Still trying to form an opinion of Ellen Sanders???

Please don’t cancel this show there’s a lot of ways to improve the story line and keep the audience interested but if CBS insist on cancel it at least kill the President let the bad guys get away whit it and just for the heck of it kill Dr. Sanders as well.He he he!!

Please KEEP HOSTAGES!!!!!!!! love this show, thought at first, where will it go from here? Lots of issues are evolving and the writers can come up with more twists and turns to make it go on!!

I really like this show. It is a different type show and so far, everyone of them has been interesting. I hope it is not cancelled, and is given a fair chance to make it.

if you can block out the obvious — CALL THE COPS!,

then it is a good show – it has a lot of twists and it can go a lot of places — since this is the kind of show I like and it is developing a following…

it will be cancelled: why? because only the dumb shows keep going — reality, game shows, comedies, etc

shows with suspence, real actors, and keep you glued type of writing never last

case in point: the 666 park ave show

i AGREE … THE SOLE REASON FOR THIS NUMBIMLYY STUPIS “SHOWS” LIKE PHONEY REALITY IS : saving 60% of cost. The only dramatized ones are actually Canadian productions with one American actor in the lead to mascarade as local, thus .. leaving another American industry go hungry.

So far Hostages is proving to be a show with very little future beyond a vehicle for unrelenting brutality but with just enough storyline to keep a small measure of curiosity in the viewer. I just don’t see much future for this show overall but certainly not in my house.


Hostage October 27, 2013 at 10:30 am

I love this show and cannot want until the next episode. At first was a little had to follow, but now it has been a great show. I hope they keep the show on. Once I gave it a change I really liked it.


Matt October 27, 2013 at 12:12 am

cancel it! The main women character Dr. Ellen Sanders is a LOUSY actor and is ugly to boot, or should I say as a boot! the show is laughable.
