LIZZIE RETURNS: This site usually doesn't go heavy on the free-standing procedural shows, but I thought Without a Trace was worth a mention this week. (Excellent show, by the way, but there's too darn much serial drama out there demanding my first-run attention. I watch it religiously during the summertime in reruns.)
This week's episode, entitled Viuda Negra, features guest star Alex Kingston as a woman who witnesses her husband's kidnapping. Kingston's appearance is reason enough to tune in, but here's the kicker: the episode is directed by none other than Paul McCrane.
