Hunters (Amazon) -- Al Pacino hunting Nazis -- EP: Jordan Peele -- premieres 2/21/20





There comes a time where we all must choose between the light and the darkness. Welcome to the hunt. From the creator of Us and Get Out comes the newest thrilling series on Prime Video, Hunters. Executive Produced by Jordan Peele and starring Al Pacino.

About Hunters: Inspired by true events, HUNTERS follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters in 1977 New York City who discover that hundreds of escaped Nazis are living in America. And so, they do what any bad-ass vigilante squad would do: they set out on a bloody quest for revenge and justice. But they soon discover a far-reaching conspiracy and must race against time to thwart the Nazis’ new genocidal plans.

Not sure I can see Ted Mosby as a Nazi hunter.

"And that, kids, is how I hunted a Nazi"

It's in 4K. A friend of mine is not able to get the 4K for whatever reason. I didn't do anything special except that I added to my queue and am watching it from my Apple TV 4K.

Holy shit...so far this is so fucking good. First ep brisk, witty, bloody and so colorful in scenes, especially opening with Dylan Baker. I might take my time, but so far so fucking great. Great cast that gel so well.

This show is awesome. Watched the first one -- it was 80 minutes and the second episode is 62 minutes. At least the episodes are nice and hearty. Works for me!

Hmmm...I didn't think the trailers looked so good. Seems like a knock-off of the Boys but Nazis.

Maybe when I get some time I will give it a shot.

Weird comparison. It's nothing like The Boys.

I’m excited to see what’s in store, but the low rent William H. Macy dude doing the “kill everyone you know because your cover might get blown” shit is trite as hell. Plus instant headshots like he’s Clint Eastwood for like 10 people. Unless it’s a dream sequence.

Four eps and I'm in for the run. Pacino is great in the Saul Rubinek part. I can't figure out who Saul Rubinek is playing. The Billy Crystal part?

4 episodes in and I love everything (but the profanity) about it. From the Tarantino-like grindhouse touches, to the plot, and the bouncing between serious and the occasional camp, to Pacino's performance, I find it thoroughly entertaining and a bit thought-provoking.

I thought Lillyhammer was terrific so take that into account.
