My Thoughts on Bounty Wars T.V. Show

I think that this TV show does show people that there is a consequence for all. As far as the teams motivated by greed, I dont think so. People in this society today have to understand that not everybody wins and when time is up, game over. Im sure that the other writer has never lost at anything and Im sure that person always won at everything they did. Sorry it does not work that way. But its just my thought.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The series offers a look at the different ways bounty hunters search for and capture defendants in order to collect a percentage of the bounty that is earned as a result of the arrest. To make it more interesting, details about some of the team members' personal lives are revealed, and limited details about the defendants' backgrounds are discussed.

The activities featured here are motivated by greed rather than justice, something that is most apparent when a team is minutes away from seizing a wanted criminal and then walks away because the game is over. Nonetheless, fans of crime fighting shows will still find it voyeuristically entertaining.
