Can Hunted please find better aerial shots next season?

hunt ends a very successful first season tonight.

Kudos to 10 for coming up with something different in the Reality genre and to producers Endemol Shine Australia for taking a chance. It worked like a short sprint season, and I hope all parties resist the urge to drag it out, given that the results are pretty similar from episode to episode.

But I’m hoping next season (which I’m sure it will be) that the aerial shots reflect the area they’re supposed to represent.

A source 10 tells me that the ones used were accurate….. but I’m bullshitting on that, and I’m not the only one.

I know of no place in the Beechworth high country where the TV towers of Mount Dandenong can be seen.

I’m pretty sure Emerald, which is a particularly hilly part of the Dandenongs, doesn’t have many new areas.

Inner Brunswick looks very modern, where are all the old townhouses?

Does Oakleigh have any streets with underground power lines like this aerial view? No, it’s very 1950s.

And where do you fit in Footscray looking towards the CBD which has Port Phillip Bay on the left hand side?

These just didn’t pass the pub test for me.

How did that come about given that the ground locations look authentic? This suggests that there weren’t enough problems with drone photography and that post-production was done entirely in Sydney, where a lack of familiarity led to some hokey shots.

But when Melbourne is the most enthusiastic viewers in the country, that’s a problem that should be solved next year.
