Recipient of 3 Emmy nominations, Hunter is widely considered one of the premiere action/detective dramas of its time.
Much like Tom Selleck’s Magnum, P.I., Fred Dryer’s Hunter had a knack for attracting a TV audience to his unique persona, an onscreen charisma that carried an otherwise so-so series through a nine-season run.
Created by Frank Lupo, brains behind the smash hit The A-Team (1982) and writer for the hit series Battlestar Galactica (1978), Magnum, P.I. (1980), and Walker, Texas Ranger (1993), Hunter is constructed on the overused concept of a maverick police officer who breaks the rules, but never gets fired because he’s so good.
Despite its formulaic approach, Hunter is pure entertainment for all those who love 1980s action dramas.
The Hunter (Season 2) DVD features a number of action-packed episodes including the season premiere “Case X” in which Dee Dee goes undercover as a prospective model when a modeling agent’s clients start turning up dead. When Hunter and Dee Dee discover that the modeling agent is sending his clients to a photographer who specializes in filming porn, the two get closer to discovering the true identity of the murderer.
Other notable episodes from Season 2 include “The Big Fall” in which Hunter and Dee Dee must discover the identity of the murderer who killed the star witness under their protection or else risk being pinned with the rap themselves, and “Death Machine” in which Hunter and Dee Dee must investigate a series of underworld murders ordered by a jewel smuggler who was ripped off for over two million dollars by a pair of petty burglars.
