Episode details

Hunters on Amazon Prime is not the show it was advertised as. The trailers made it look like a Quentin Tarantino style revenge fantasy focused on Nazis in America. While there is some of that, the show itself is more of a deep meditation on what should happen with people that are willing to devalue human life to the point of genocide, but it also looks at topics of petty revenge from various angles as well. Through the dialogue, it is clear that this show wants to be a conversation of what makes a hero and how do we obtain justice when the system fails us.  All of those are interesting questions, but the show is far more interested in its own cleverness than it is at answering those questions. The two major twists that take place in the story don’t add much of anything and detract from the show overall. One is so obvious that it shouldn’t count as a twist, and the other The other comes out of no where and re-contexts earlier reveals into hollow, heavy handed foreshadowing that guts the heart of the story. The complexity of this series make it worth talking about, but I am not sure it deserves a second season.
