Hunter's Historical Significance
11 February 2005 | by (Washington DC USA) – See all my reviews

Hunter was a conventional detective show in most respects, but had an innovation that advanced the genre to new levels: the laws of physics were changed so that when cars crashed, they spiraled upwards at a 45 degree angle. You could count on this happening at least once per show, and always at the same point in the soundtrack.

The only detective series to better Hunter in repeatable phenomena was Mannix, a forgotten show from the 60s. Not only would a car drive off the same cliff at least once per show, but Mannix would be whacked on the brain stem at the exact same point in the show every week, and display no ill effects. Or, come to think of it, maybe that was why the dialog was so bad...
