the new episode on Showtime 'The Hunt' was , all in all, a great episode. It kept me guessing right up til the end. And even though, technically speaking it was a horrific ending, it didn't matter, because the point the writer was making was so cool. A way better episode than Criminal minds, in my opinion. It reminded me of that great line in Alien Resurrection, when it was discovered Call was an android. Something like " It figures. She's too humane to be a human" . What a show!

Well, just like last year, the premiere ( CRIMINAL NATURE) was lacklustre, but the SECOND episode delivered the goods. A twisted variation on the famous story "The Most Dangerous Game", THE HUNT features 4 androids who have outlived their usefulness and are hunted down like animals by humans who want "to kill for sport". Mario Azzopardi's direction was unusual: the early parts of this ep are done in the cold European style he brought to RESURRECTION, but as the show continues, he "opens up" in a way that really keeps the tension high. I recognized three of these actors from earlier episodes, but can definitely pinpoint only one: the actor playing the "son" was the girl's boyfriend in FEASIBILITY STUDY. If anyone knows which eps the "tracker" (dont know his true name) and the "girl android" (Sarah Strange) were formerly in, let me know so I can quit walking the floor (sheesh!) Another fine script from Sam Egan, who wrote last year's outstanding SECOND THOUGHTS and the somewhat lesser ep NEW LEASE. He certainly has his finger on the dark pessimism that has always been a hallmark of OL regardless of its incarnation. A great episode, all in all.

Could someone tell me why the fantastic original episode "the man who was never born" has not yet been remade in the new series?

>Could someone tell me why the fantastic original episode "the man who was >never born" has not yet been remade in the new series? Who can say? Perhaps they will remake it. Personally, I would rather they reamke eps that DIDN'T WORK the first time, and get it right in the remake. But I have enjoyed both the remake eps so far, and MAN WHO WAS NEVER BORN was a favorite from the old series. I dont know who you would get to play ANdro with the sympathy Martin Landau brought to the part, though.
