“The Missing”: As Good As “Broadchurch”?

THR says: ‘”The Missing,” an engaging and haunting eight-part limited series about the disappearance of a young boy — told in 2006, the time of his abduction, and 2014, when new evidence emerges — is, unto itself, a remarkable piece of television. But if you put it in context with two other recent series, its achievements stand in sharper relief. The BBC series, made in conjunction with Starz, is almost a cousin series to “Broadchurch,” the similarly heartbreaking and stark BBC America series that was recently turned into [the vastly inferior] “Gracepoint,” on Fox, for American television.’ “The Missing” premieres this Saturday at 9.
