Celebrity Hunted, that is: television thinks the viewer is stupid


Finally, it took a while but in the end the big day has arrived: a program that declares, once and for all, that television considers the viewer a moron. Just hang around. The truth hurts us, we know, but when it takes it it takes. And after decades of illusions, the harsh and harsh reality is better. The great merit of this unveiling belongs to “Celebrity Hunted”, second season (which only the fact of having left the first unpunished would deserve applause) of a kind of soup of genres packed with abundance for Amazon Prime.

In summary, seven VIPs must hide around Italy and not be found until the final goal is reached. They travel around the country, they have two coins and an old generation phone at their disposal but they are very VIPs and therefore with a lot of friends ready to help them. The pursuit is organized by “a team with the most feared and well-known professionals in the sector, such as cyber security experts and human trackers of law enforcement and military services”. Who get fooled for the sake of the game like any inspector Ginko.

In the sense that while Stefano Accorsi runs away on a horse, evidently surrounded by a crew with cameramen, sound engineers, cinematographers, production inspectors, organizers, make-up and hair, the pursuers look around in a desolate land and instead of following the Productive crowds shake their heads at the cry of “damn it, we can’t find it, who knows which way it will go.”

So for six episodes, until even the most naive public realizes that TV and verisimilitude go aimlessly but somewhere else.

Then for heaven’s sake, the product is of excellent workmanship, a bit “Beijing Express”, a bit “Hunger Games”, a bit of everything else. And the famous put on a show, each showing its most significant side (Diletta Leotta takes selfies, Achille Lauro dresses up, Miss Keta out of place, Accorsi looks for her idea, Vanessa Incontrada is affectionate and so on), the pursuers are dressed black with black cars to avoid the risk of getting confused in the crowd, the snowcat is the master and the tension cannot be cut with the knife because it is false to the point of remaining attached to it.

In the end, going beyond the unpleasant feeling of having been beautifully duped, the result is that looking at all that money spent on the sumptuous realization reveals another truth: money not only does not give happiness, but, sometimes, not even good ones. programs.
