Behind the Reviews – Edition #13 (Hyde & Seek)

Hyde & Seek premiered on 3 October 2016 on the Nine Network. A drama thriller series, Hyde & Seek’s premise was described as follows:

“When his best mate is killed in a seemingly random attack, Detective Gary Hyde (Matt Nable) vows to bring the killers to justice. Together with his new partner Claire McKenzie (Emma Hamilton), Gary uncovers a criminal underbelly of murder, identity fraud, chaos and intrigue where no one is safe and no one can be trusted. In a world where crime has no borders and everyone has something to hide, Gary and Claire risk it all to catch the criminals but will they lose their loved ones in the process?”

I wrote in my review of the pilot that I didn’t know what to expect from the show as my impression from the trailer was that Hyde was corrupt, however the trailer is meant to mislead and they did with his character. However the trailer didn’t mislead on how much of a thriller the show would be, each episode was filled with plenty of action scenes, while also providing us with the mystery of who Nick’s killer/s was and who was the mastermind of a terrorism scheme that had multiple police and security agencies investigating.
