    I assume that they pay to get to the cams. Also, everyone of the investigators is former police/cia/fbi whatever, which means they are all CJIS certified. I think the point is that info is available to law enforcement. I saw a conference and video on tracking people in London and what this show demonstrates is happening. If I lived in London, I would never carry anything electric, I would always wear a hat and large sunglasses. Today its London, in the future every city.

    Except it looked like the hunters figured out their license plate from the car that Blaze got them. If true, it's likely only a matter of time before a highway plate reader catches them.

    Yes, but even if they get the 'real' cam footage, that is afterwards..

    so it seems like none of it can be real time..

    ok, I just skimmed part of that article and will read it fully later..

    yeah, it's what I expected -- faked footage (from the production) + the participants (even not the "contestants") signing forms that agree to participate, e.g. letting them in their house.

    I still think it's somewhat entertaining --- but I guess I like it better when I know it's completely fictional, like CSI or Person of Interest.

    I gotta wonder if this is real, mainly because of the friends and family. They seem to be just so completely willing to tell the people everything they know.

    I think word leaked out that the friends and family have to talk with the investigators. Any normal person would not answer the door but then again on those times in real life where people do, the police are practiced at getting people to reveal stuff they otherwise would not.

    Was hoping David and Emiley could find a way to get out of their situation. Can't imagine Lee and Hilmar haven't covered their butts with the craigslist postings by covering their IPs somehow. Still liking the show despite some of what has been discussed here recently.

    I was trying to think of a way for David and Emiley to get out of this, and the only thing I could think of would be to have other cars come and run interference for them, by either boxing in the hunters, or having David and Emiley drive through a parking lot and then have a car pull out right after them and stop in the middle of the lane, preventing the Hunters from following. But I don't know if that would be allowed, since doing that in real life would get the accomplices arrested.

    I agree that Lee and Hilmar were smart enough to mask their IPs, which is why there wasn't anything else brought up about that story in this episode. If the Craigslist postings were going to lead to actionable intel that the Hunters could follow, they would have edited the episode to tell that story. But instead, they just brought it up and then completely dropped it, and I seriously doubt they're going to pick that thread up again next week in the finale.

    I think there's no question that at least one team wins the money next week, and at least one team gets caught. So the real question is: will two teams win next week or will two teams get caught?

    What do you mean "word leaked out?" I don't think that was a secret to the players in the game and the people they recruited to help them. I'm fairly certain that anyone who we saw on screen signed a release and probably also agreed to cooperate with the production and make themselves available to be questioned by the Hunters if the Hunters developed the appropriate intel to lead them to that person.

    They could have gotten away if they had some friends that they could have switched cars with during that time when the hunters lost them. Would have been incredibly difficult to pull off but switching cars when the hunters weren't watching would be the only thing I can think of.

    In theory that could work, but given the situation they were in, with two sets of Hunters right on their tail, they had no way to know or predict that the Hunters would ever let them out of their sight. So I'm not sure how they could even expect to plan something like that unless they were positive they'd be able to get some separation and be out of sight for at least a minute or more.

    I was right by the location where David and Emily were caught this past weekend, but I have not been in the new sports complex. I don't think there is an easy way out of the area other than just shear speed and maneuverability, which the Denali doesn't have.

    I still can't figure out why the contestants won't stay off the interstate. Or at least alter their license plate.

    read the article.. it discusses this.. This show is even _less_ real than I would have guessed, and it seemed very fake to me.. I'll still watch the finale.

    I can't find anything on Google confirming that I-20 in Georgia has any Automated License Plate Readers (ALPRs). However, based on what the show implied, it doesn't make that much sense the ALPRs would be located so close to each other on the same highway.

    Based on your article, if a Fugitives' car goes by any ALPR, the producers will likely feel entitled to pass on their real-time location to the command center for the sake of the show. Would it be that much of a stretch under the rules for a producer to give away the location of the car based on the claim that the highway COULD have had an ALPR there?

    Reality Blurred has more good info on the rules
    A few of Hunted's absurd rules have been revealed
    1. Teams must move every 48 hours.
    2. Teams cannot return to the same place twice. (Emiley: “You can’t go back to the same place twice.”)
    3. Teams cannot be helped by the same person twice. (David: “You couldn’t use the same resources [people] repeatedly.” Emiley: “You can’t use the same person twice.”)
    4. Teams have to use the ATM twice during the competition.
    5. Teams cannot take out more than $100 from an ATM at one time, and cannot visit an ATM more than once in a day.
    6. No one can give the teams money. (David: “You couldn’t get certain resources. We couldn’t just get tons of cash.”
    7. Producers “can create a rule or take away a rule at any point in time,” Emiley said.

    I'm thinking I won't be watching season 2 only because the rules are so stacked in favor of the hunters in order for it to be a challenge and suspenseful TV. The first season was a worthwhile watch just to learn of all of the technology that is out there (even though the producers faked a lot of the footage)
