Yup, we liked it! Really rookie mistakes from two of the couples. They must not watch enough Investigation Discovery shows.
I'm liking it a lot more than I thought I would!
I believe the show moves to its regular Wednesday spot tomorrow.
It does move to Wednesdays.
the show gives you a good idea of just how much power the gov't has.
Andy:there are places in this world that aren't made out of stone. That there's something inside... that they can't get to, that they can't touch. That's yours.
Red:What're you talking about?
Yes, two hour show this Wednesday night (almost over right now, EST).
I really like it for an insight into the newest technology used on high profile suspects.
Too many trailing cameras for me to see it as a true reality but I'm enjoying it for what it is.
IMHO, great show for popcorn and wagering a few side bets.
In the beginning was the WORD. Without definition there was nothing. We define the words.
The two hours seemed to fly by! I enjoyed watching the show tonight and seeing how the hunted think they can out smart the officials. Like the rental car decoy, but the mailing letters not working out as well. And that last couple probably would've been okay for awhile if they'd just stayed inside. By running outside to get away, they got spotted.
The paranoia would drive me crazy!! But I'm wondering if this gives real fugitives ideas on how the detectives work. I'm learning a lot, so dumb criminals probably will too!
I think the cameraman/drones?? with them could be a problem--one more person to keep out of sight. I would imagine the law enforcement has to agree not to do any tracking of production team. This would be more realistic if it were like "Alone" and the teams photographed themselves. Being on FB or Instagram seems to be the kiss of death to stay incognito. We could all hide out with FORT people
I was really shocked that the experts both figured out and tracked those letters!
And wait until Emily finally learns that the investigators are using imprints on her calendar to figure out what their plan is.
I'm concerned by the accuracy of the show, however much I enjoy it. For one, did you note the disclaimer at the end of the show? It says something like “While the investigative techniques shown in Hunted are real, some procedures have been replicated for broadcast.”
So, to me, that means some of the scenes are re-shot ... staged .... I wonder what "procedures" mean? If it is only in how the hunters go about their business, I guess that is acceptable. However, I hope that doesn't mean some of the scenes of the hunted themselves are all real and not re-staged.
This show, as I understand, is the U.S. reinvention of the British show by the same name. That show, as I understand, was criticized for some of its techniques, as listed in this article.

I don't see any thing like that in the U.S. version's disclaimers, however.
