    Simply the best show you aren't watching. It's smart, sexy and well-written; and while I enjoy Homeland, it doesn't make me want to devour a whole season in one sitting the way Hunted does. It might be less realistic than Homeland, but it's a heck of a lot less cynical too.

    Take the feel and atmosphere of Bourne or Ronin, combined with a multiple-season spanning mystery/conspiracy
    like Lost, and you have the general feel of Hunted, 6 episodes in when the first penny drops.

    If you're a fan of the BBC or British TV it's a must see. Probably the best thing I've ever watched on Skinemax. Support good TV.

    Hunted balances its cheesy dialogue and gratuitous sex and violence with an overarching narrative that dramatizes endemic moral rot and the dark money pulling strings from behind the curtain.

    A simmering bit of silly suspense fun created by X-Files writer-producer Frank Spotnitz.

    [George] is not terribly believable in any of them, forcing viewers to rely on the reactions of those around her to see that she is convincing as an uber agent. Fortunately, the other performances are strong enough to carry it off for the most part, and as the plot divides and subdivides, sending tendrils up through the vaunted British intelligence agency, recalling the Cold War and evoking more current international concerns, Hunted takes on a smart and disturbing personality of its own.
