The family and I have enjoyed the first two episodes of "Hunted." It's contrived, but we like to judge other people's tactics and talk about what we would do, etc. Some random thoughts: I wish they had a day counter. The one couple was caught after 18 days, but you'd have never known. It felt like six. How dumb do you have to be to use their ATM card and board a bus at the same train station? Don't call your loved ones. Duh. The email account with the drafts was a good idea, but they got too spooked about them being able to OPEN the letters too easily. Tempting loved ones with a "reward" is cheesy. How dumb are the loved ones who voluntarily agree to be interviewed, and then not only that, but give up actual valuable information? Just say no. I'm a bit confused, too, on the rules. I get that the contestants have signed over a lot of their rights: their homes are rifled through, their computers (temporarily) confiscated, etc. But during the show two things seemed to happen which conflict: They wire tapped a non-contestant's phone. Did they sign away their rights, too? How is that legal? It's not like there's a judge granting warrants for these things because they're not actually fugitives. It seems like they can't violate some laws, like even trespassing. So what's to stop someone from just going to a friend's house, having the friend buy tickets to somewhere far away in their names, and living in their friend's basement for 28 days? If the hunters can't trespass, all they can do is suspect you're inside, and if the hosts don't act strangely, they'll have no way to apprehend you.
