Hunted (Cinemax, tonight) Season Finale: Melissa George’s spy-soap ends its first season, at which point she will no longer be hunted—at least not until next year, since Cinemax might go forward with Season 2 even though production partner BBC has dropped out. If a strictly Cinemax version contains more violence and nudity, I guess I can learn to live with it.
