Show Summary

"I'm a bounty hunter, but it's just something that I do. I'm really looking for something that was stolen from me. Ten years ago, they took my son. As I search, there are signs that something is happening. That humanity is about to change. But I won't be distracted. How do you find one small boy In such a large universe? I'm not sure. But I have to keep trying."

  • Wow! That was bad.

    2.0
    I have seen several references in other reviews to Firefly. The only similarity I saw, was that they both had spaceships. The best thing I can say about this show is that the special effects are bad. The writing is awful. The acting is awful. It is as if they went out of their way to find bad actors.
  • A space crew of three. The captain, Dante Montana, a bounty hunter has been looking for his kidnapped son for the pass ten years. His first office is by his side at all times providing him much needed support. They take any job to keep going.moreless

    If you like Firefly you will like this StarHunter. The two shows are so much alike. If you don't like Firefly you still may enjoy StarHunter. The cast is not as large, only three. The stories lines are from a different and more family base view. The captain has been looking for his kidnapped son for ten years. One member of his crew is his niece who parents was killed by the same people, The Raiders, who he believe kidnapped his son. In one episode he even think he has found his son. The boy turn out to be another kidnapped child who is returned to his parent. Mean while he has to be captain and father to his niece.moreless
  • I really wanted to like Starhunter. The premise is interesting and the universe is original, but it doesn't live up to it's potential due to low production quality and generally poor acting. Re-watch Firefly instead.moreless

    I really wanted to like Starhunter. The premise is interesting and the universe is original, but it just doesn't live up to it's potential. The budget was obviously lacking. Sets are generally small and uninspired, the CGI work is marginal, and the special effects distract from rather than enhance the story.



    Worse than that is the lackluster acting. The intro snippets by the crew's bounty hunter agent are clever, but the only real cast members that draw you in are Percy and (with less consistency) Dante.



    The real trouble with the show is that despite a fairly original premise and a bold real-space setting, it just comes out as a Firefly wanna-be. As if regular plot and aesthetic similarities weren't enough, the composition of the ensemble reflects Joss Whedon's masterpiece pound-for-pound (Mal=Dante, Kalee=Percy, Zoe=Luc). Unfortunately it is a poor substitute for more Serenity.



    The only reason that I even made it past the second episode was an irresistible infatuation with Tanya Allen. Unless you're already caught on her endearing warmth and charm, just go watch Firefly again instead.moreless
  • Unique sci-fi series with edge.

    8.0
    Starhunter was a unique sci-fi programme. Some edgey scripts with very interesting characters in the second season. It is nice to see a vision of the future that is neither uptopian nor dystopian. Season one was uninspiring but contained a few glimmers of hope; the second season contained some excellent. It is a shame that a third season was not produced. The concept of the 'divinity cluster' was a fascinating one that added an interesting layer to the programme. Hopefully the series will find its way onto DVD.moreless
  • This show is all I am looking for in a SF adventure series. The character development and originality is fantastic!

    I have nothing but good things to say about this series and can only hope that it is brought back. The show far exceeds any recent Star Trek offerings and offshoots (i.e. Andromeda). The mood of the show is especially refreshing. A bit dark, not all "rush rush", tension is perfect!. The dynamics between Callista and Travis are all you could ask for in terms of romantic tension. Percy, such a unique and original character. Awesome acting by everyone!moreless
