      Richard Zoglin TIME Magazine As adherents to formula go, NBC's Hunter is probably the most entertaining of the newcomers... Producer Stephen Cannell knows how to poke fun at the genre without trashing it. Oct 11, 2022 Full Review Eric Mink St. Louis Post-Dispatch A humorless action show that paints careful cops as buffoons and cops who blithely disregard the law as heroes. Jun 25, 2021 Full Review Nick Coleman Minneapolis Star Tribune All in all, one of the least likable shows on the new schedule. Jun 23, 2021 Full Review Karl Vick Tampa Bay Times The show is typically second-rate Stephen J. Cannell: bantering leads get off the occasional fresh quip, but trite dramatic dialogue cancels that out. Jun 25, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
