Review: A hostage 'Crisis' that might hold an NBC audience captive
With a busload of kidnapped high school students, a flock of powerful parents and a smattering of high-caliber stars, NBC's "Crisis," which premieres Sunday, seems prepared to do what CBS couldn't with "Hostages" — create a high-octane, character-driven suspense drama that is both familiar (newbie FBI agent up against emotionally charged odds) and unexpected (the point of the abduction is not clear).
