Episode #389 – Hunted UK Series 1 Episode 2 Recap

Send whoever is chasing you on a wild goose chase, because we’re back to look at some Hunted history! Over these six weeks, three people who are always looking for John Smiths – Anthony, Michelle & myself – are back to recap each episode of the only Hunted series we never covered and look back at the first series where Doug ethically hacked his way into our affections – continuing with the second episode and capture of Davinder & Harinder.
