Storyline

Two acquaintances called "The Prey" are placed in a different location of the Canadian wilderness each episode. They are given a map with a starting point and ending location approx. 40 kilometers away. The prey are given 36 hours to reach the ending location by any means, and by any route necessary. The "Mantracker" Terry Grant and sidekick (usually a new one per episode) will then attempt to capture the prey while on horseback before they reach the finish line using various expert tracking skills.

Frustratingly pointless
5 October 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

How anyone can give this more than one star is beyond me. I have subtitled a few episodes and all I can think of is "how did anyone ever think this was a good idea for a show?" Absolutely nothing happens, there is nothing at stake (bragging rights? Come on), every episode is the exact same. Run through the woods, almost get caught, spent the night outdoors, wake up, almost get caught, rinse, repeat. The suspense is as artificial as any episode of The Kardashians, and there just is no point to the proceedings. None whatsoever. Why would anyone care if some random folks make it to a random intersection in some random wilderness before they get caught by this guy, when there's not even anything on the line? In every episode the "prey" at some point talks about how "scary" it was then they were being chased by Mantracker and how it felt like they were "fighting for their lives." Why would anything in this show make you feel like that? If you get caught, you get caught and go home. There's no humiliation, you don't lose anything, cause there was never anything at stake in the first place. I really don't get it. I love Canadians, but they make horrible TV.
