Sometimes I just need an easy to watch show that doesn't require much concentration yet is a good distraction. This show fits the bill, perfectly. Didn't start watching till there were at least ten episodes to binge watch.
The main lead is eye candy x 100 and I like the supporting characters and locations.

Ransom is a CBS procedural show, you know what that means, boring simplistic and ugly to look at. It is unchallenging fare for the simple minded that need everything spoon fed to them in the most boring visual style possible.

The premise is good, but the execution is lacking.

I think this is a great show, can't believe how many different ideas they have come up with for the Crisis Resolution team to solve.

A1E4: Probably if I give it more time, it can turn into a story, but just stopped halfway through E4, because I think it is an ordinary cop/hostage situation episode after episode with a hidden agenda on someone's part. Not anything to hook me with. Maybe if I run out of shows to watch, I give it a try.
Thanks though.

...wasn't ever really fond of this show although I did start watching it in the beginning.

I have watched 4 episodes so far and it is a pretty good show. But it reminds me a lot of "Lie to me" and it is already turning predictable. Kind of saddens me having to say this. I want to keep watching. But it seems to be the same thing in each episode. I know it is procedural but it is very, very predictable. And it gets really boring after a while.

I love Ransom. It is by far one of my favorites and I am sad to see it go. It is not right for all the shows that are likable to be canceled and yet others that are pointless and are stupid and a complete waste of time to continue. I am not happy to know that just about everything that I watched was canceled. If you can't do better by keeping the stupid time wasting crap on TV why bother actually making anything that is worth watching anymore to just cancel it?

Sorry to learn CBS canceled this series.IMO it was no worse then the crap they renewed,Scorpion,Hawaii 50,Blue Bloods,etc.I just have to conclude that the networks no longer program shows for my target audience.Yes I do have access to Netflix and "free tv."
