Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Hostages is a thrilling and suspenseful new drama series about a family caught in the middle of a political conspiracy that will change their lives forever. Emmy® and Golden Globe winner Toni Collette (The United States of Tara) stars as Ellen Sanders, a top surgeon in Washington, D.C., who has been tapped to operate on the President of the United States … and then kill him. If she doesn’t comply, her husband (Tate Donovan – Argo) and kids, who are being held hostage, will be harmed. Ellen will do anything to protect her family, as will Duncan Carlisle (Golden Globe winner and Emmy® nominee Dylan McDermott – American Horror Story, The Practice), a righteous FBI agent who’s at the center of a conspiracy involving the President and will fight for his cause at any cost. As tensions mount, it becomes clear that the outwardly idyllic Sanders clan isn’t as perfect as once thought, nor are their captors as evil as one might suspect.

The elephant in the room?
So why am I sitting back after watching this with a feeling that something obvious has not been addressed?
Could it be that nowhere in the pilot is there any mention of any secret service people vetting the good doctor or even paying her a visit the day before the President's life is in her hands?
This is so dumb, even for Bruckheimer standards. At least give us a reason so we know the writing staff is aware of this obvious blunder the size of Nebraska and they're going somewhere with this. It makes it a lot easier to swallow the cliché tough on the outside, soft on the inside marshmallow qualities of our male antagonist if the rest of the story actually held up. (Did someone actually tell him to "Think Bruce Willis!"?)
Even a cardboard universe has to have some sort of internal logic.
It just kills me to see this amount of talent and money go up in smoke!
I've been hooked from the first episode and can't wait to see how it's going to end!
