Hunted: The Complete First Season DVD

SKU ID #449461
$39.98
Following in the footsteps of Strike Back and from creator/writer and three-time Emmy® nominee Frank Spotnitz (Strike Back, The X-Files), Hunted is an edge-of-your-seat thriller that stars Melissa George (In Treatment, Alias) as Sam Hunter, a highly skilled operative for an elite private security firm called Byzantium, who narrowly survives an attempt on her life that may have been orchestrated by members of her own team.

Once Sam returns to work a year later (having told nobody her whereabouts), she must perform her secretive duties without knowing who to trust – and who might want her dead. While continuing her search for the truth – and effort that sheds light on her tragic past – Sam is ordered to infiltrate a wealthy, high-profile family by posing as a good Samaritan, which leads her into a mystery more vast, complex, and dangerous than she could have ever imagined. Brilliant, beautiful, ruthless, and efficient, Sam is a force to be reckoned with as the first season of Hunted unfolds.

    This is an amazing series with a fantastic storyline. We watched the whole series all in one day. I was so sad to hear that BBC did not renew this. I hope that cinemax answers all the unanswered questions at the end of season 1!

    Comments about this product:

    I have always been a fan of tv and film espionage. I was a huge fan of Alias and Nikita, and a big fan of James Bond, Mission Impossible, Bourne, etc. When I heard of another spy tv series with a tough female lead, I was very excited, but I wondered what they would do to make this show original from past shows. To say the least, I was very impressed with the choices made. A short 8-episode season worked great because it gave the writers the time to write a main overall plot without any random pointless episodes stuck in the middle.

    It had the action and excitement of shows like Alias and Nikita, but also had a dark and well written overall storyline similar to Homeland and The Americans. Sure, some people don't like the show because some of it is a little over-the-top, but that's why we like these shows. I mean, who wants to watch a James Bond film if he couldn't do all the amazing stuff that he does? Espionage tv is supposed to take it to the next level. And personally, I think it did a great job! Hopefully Cinemax picks this up for another season. But if not, I was satisfied with the ending of season 1.

        Comments about this product:

        "Hunted" is an eight part British espionage drama created by Frank Spotnitz, who worked on some of "The X-Files" most memorable episodes as a producer and writer. Premiering on both BBC1 in England and Cinemax in America, it seems unlikely (as of this review date) that the program will return for a second season with BBC1 having already passed on its option and Cinemax still considering its position. So, I think it's best to view "Hunted" as a self-contained entity and judge it as one complete story. It's a shame, though, I think it had the potential to develop into something richer and more intriguing with different narrative threads. While many have tried to label this as some sort of an "Alias" clone (it even stars one of that show's alums, Melissa George), I don't really see the comparison as apt. Both programs have international intrigue, a strong female protagonist and plenty of fisticuffs. "Hunted," though, is not episodic. It has a singular plot, for the most part, that unravels over the course of the season.
