    Default Hunted

    The new reality show 'hunted' could be interesting. I caught a preview after the football game. It starts Wednesday evening 8e.

    I caught a tiny glimpse of one episode. Seems they're dumb as usual. Having your truck driving sister take you somewhere. Using an atm at a bus station then taking that bus somewhere. Like shooting fish in a barrel for the hunters.

    I thought it was going to be a good show!!! I was wrong, I couldn't believe some of the stupid things they did. but... these are just average ( supposedly) people trying to hide out from professionals. goes to show some people have little to no common sense with some of their decisions.

    This is a take off on a BBC show that has cycled several times.

    On top of having to follow some pretty lame rules they also have a camera crew with the "participants".

    If they can not follow the victims they can follow the camera crew members who will be swapping off shifts on a regular basis.

    The problem is they pick sort of regular people to do this.

    They need to recruit a bunch of illegal immigrants for this show. Our entire law enforcement system can not find them.

    I get some entertainment from seeing how people think and react.

    I deal with hunted women every day. Not a show I care to watch as the reality is not entertaining.
    Why do I live in Alaska? Because I can.

    Even some of these reactionary responses are unique.

    I liked the show that use to be on where they hunted people in the wilderness. Yeah they did stupid things on occasion but it was always entertaining! Can't remember the name of that show!

    The surveillance aspect of the show will be interesting for me. With cameras just about everywhere, what's being monitored. Who's doing it. It could be a learning tool. If this show goes for a second season I bet the following hunted will be wiser.

    All those type shows are amazing to me.

    Complete urban setting. No one ever leaves the center of town, they do not know the suburbs exist, much less the woods.

    All the guns are always zeroed and whatever is handed to you never fails to function. Sniper rifles you never saw before are all accurate out to infinity.

    No one ever tears the knees out of their pants and no one ever tries to choke anyone to death with their tie.

    And if you get beat up you still have all your teeth and the cuts and bruises are healed by the next day. Gunshot wounds never require more than a bandage or a sling for the arm.

    The current trend is to perform CPR when someone dies. As soon as they are brought back to life they are ready to resume the fight to save the world with no after affects of death getting in the way. Doesn't work that way.....does it Hunter.

    The neighbor who let the hunters set up their camera in his house and then phoned the hunters when the hunted came home, will need to move. Lol.

    The couple who stayed in the swamp were fine. The misses was out of shape. Everything hurt. They left the swamp and got caught. She waddled about a hundred yards and went down.

    We watched Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. Tom Cruises character (that alone explains it) basically drowns and is given CPR to bring him back. Then he goes straight into a high speed car chase that ends up flipping his car multiple times. He gets out and jumps on a jet bike for a high speed motorcycle chase, which he ends up laying it down at a very fast speed. No leather or helmet, of course. Next scene, no injuries.

    It is a sad bogus show Rebel. I could only watch a few minutes before switching back to sitcom reruns.

    It was like watching a combination of Universal Soldier and the Three Stooges.

    Trust no one.
