Underbelly: Vanishing Act

What the hell am I actually watching right now?

This franchise has clearly jumped the shark. What a waste of time.

What the fuck was that.

Even with an anthology series they could base it off the genre of crime/thriller etc, just have a different premise with different characters in each episode. Maybe 4-5 episodes per series based off a certain theme. Something akin to American Horror Story or The Twilight Zone.

Aside from the ending I think the production overall was very well done. Nothing genius but I didn’t mind it.

I guess the ending had to be ambiguous… is she or didn’t she. It honestly could be either…

The actor who played the ASIC agent though - Phoebe was awful. She was like a robot with her dialogue and the only character who was the letdown across the show.

It could have been/ should have been 1 episode….what happened in the second? Very little
And the last 45 seconds on a yacht……I was expecting more after the ad break

Gogglebox did a great segment summarising the two episodes of Vanishing Act on this week’s show.

I did notice “A Screentime Banijay production” in the opening titles. I know that Banijay bought Screentime a few years ago, but I think this is the first time the French parent company name appeared on a locally made program.

Another case of an unnecessarily long drama. Agree it should have been a 2 hour telemovie.

ITV has bought the mini-series (3 x 45 minute version) from distributor DCD Rights, and has also commissioned a separate documentary on the disappearance of Melissa Caddick.
