EHG 142: Does Hunted's Good Idea Make For Bad TV?
Monty Ashley on The Amazing Fugitive, home movies, podcasts, and more!
Our esteemed colleague Monty Ashley is back to discuss new CBS reality joint Hunted, and whether a solid idea is a victim of bad execution -- or a weird tone Tara calls "this love letter to the surveillance state." After fleeing that topic, The Blotter Presented two recent worthwhile crime docs before we went around the dial with One Day At A Time, Face Off, SVU, and a creepy retro ad. Monty storyboarded an episode of Home Movies for the Canon, This Is Us and Nicolette Sheridan won and lost, and Game Time spelled victory for one strategic winner.
