Have fewer fugitive teams so it is less frenetic and so viewers can get more involved with the participants. I really had no personal involvement with any of them.
Tell the viewers more about the rules! I didn't understand why family members and close friends "gave up" information so easily. Do they have to tell the truth? Are they paid? If so, why were just a few paid? Do the fugitives understand the rules? How about volunteer helpers? Do they know that it is a reality game show? If so, can fugitives offer to reimburse them later if they win? It's hard for viewers to buy in, when the rules are so fuzzy.
What about the cameramen? What are there rules? Is there a way for the investigators to track them? That would be a huge cheat.
Give the fugitives a more realistic chance. Letting the pursuers know exactly how they are going to escape was a huge cheat, in my opinion.
Treat it more like the game it is, rather than acting as if these contestants are serial killers or something. Lighten up! Show respect where it is deserved.
I hope this show continues with substantial improvements. I love the premise.
