Picks and Pans Review: Vanished

UPDATED 08/28/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 08/28/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT

FOX (Mondays, 9 p.m. ET)

There's this senator (John Allen Nelson) whose wife (Joanne Kelly) disappears during a banquet. The investigation quickly turns up perverse clues, including a corpse frozen for decades and now left out to thaw in an abandoned house, perhaps as a taunt to the lead FBI agent (Gale Harold). There's supposedly a vast sinister conspiracy generating all of this, but its shadows just aren't felt strongly enough in the premiere. Even with the human popsicle, the case seems more like a good crusade for Nancy Grace than the starting point for a series.
