Brilliant and compelling drama .

Unlike Spooks and others, the outcomes were predictable, not a single twist and some important questions are left unanswered (frustrating?

The type of demonstration bore no relation to the actual plot.

It got right to the point in the pilot with a compelling set of plot arcs...

The series should had been fast paced and fun.

I think that this sort of programme builds up eventually and thats what its starting to do now which gets more exciting to find out new facts and watch.

This show is addictive, mysterious, and thrilling.

Don't waste your time.

A slow build up of so many unanswered questions over the previous 7 episodes make the final episode (8) a "must see" - so many unanswered questions.

It is intelligent writing, intrigueing plots & compelling viewing.

The acting seemed, at best mediocre and trite.

Engaging and highly intriguing.

Gripping Stuff .

The others do okay, although that is just what is asked of them, the only one that riled me was Akinnuoye-Agbaje who is a much better presence than material given him with the office-bound and slighty bored character with a family subplot that goes nowhere.

For this story to be a espionage thriller, it' lacks the level of clever that makes espionage suspenseful.

She might as well have been chopping wood or hitting a punch bag; it was inserted merely to use a cliché to communicate something to the viewer that the writer was unable to do any other way.

The BBC might had been better off with another series of Spooks rather than this tedious series with not too exciting stories and a central arc that rapidly lost viewers interest.

Worth watching if you're just killing time, not worth watching if you want to focus on the plot.

I suspect this show was just poorly edited, and am hoping the disjointed series' best was left on the cutting room floor.

Entertaining popcorn fare.

This series is absolutely riveting , right up there with Strike Back.. Melissa G played her character perfectly .

It comes as no surprise to see that all four directors listed so far are very much from the competent but creatively-comatose school of BBC serial drama; I do not see Hunted getting picked up (unless to licence a remake) by Sky Atlantic, HBO, FX or any of the other channels turning out actual exciting, creative and visionary shows.

8 episode series which is built up quite well but there have been many more better and more exciting suspense thrillers.

I mean really worth watching back to back.

a brutal and superior take on the Bourne concept, well worth watching.

Just watched the last episode and it was gripping to the poetic end.

The characters were human and entertaining as individuals.

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

The action scenes are enthralling and the story thus far has been fairly intriguing.

Very disappointing as I enjoyed it until then.

The only downside for me was it was too fast paced at times, for me I mean.

Complicated but enjoyable thriller .

At the time of writing this review, episode 5, the series is well set for an absorbing last 4 episodes.
