Summary: Follows Flynn, a headstrong Baltimore FBI agent with a dark past, along with Regan, one of the government's most valuable operatives who may be keeping secrets of her own, and McCarthy, an unhinged junkie and Hunter cell leader.. Flynn's search for his missing wife leads him to a secret government unit assembled to hunt a group of ruthless terrorists - shadowy figures that may or may not be from this world.
“Hunters” (the name given the terrorists) involves another secret government agency, the Exo-Terrorism Unit, armed with special weapons to terminate the aliens walking among us, including a ruthless cell leader played by “Nip/Tuck’s” Julian McMahon. Yet the series, inspired by Whitney Streiber’s novel “Alien Hunter,” with Ernest Dickerson directing the premiere, traffics in no shortage of clichés: An emotionally scarred FBI agent, Flynn (Nathan Phillips), is paired with an inordinately skilled partner (Britne Oldford) in seeking to thwart whatever nefarious plans the Hunters have in mind, which remain as nebulous as the extent of their powers. “Hunters” bows alongside the second season of the movie adaptation “12 Monkeys,” another entry in the relatively long list of dramas that feature time travel as a narrative device. Having watched two episodes of its new companion, the prevailing feeling is a desire to go back in time, if only to get those hours back.
