    If this show does not get renewed, I will be so disappointed. I started watching around the fifth episode, I could not get enough of it. I watched to the end in one night. Three months later, I go back, and this time watch the entire season. I always say “Capture is my favorite Tv show.” When ever I saw a chase, I shook with anticipation. It keeps you into it until the very end. To summarize, this show is one of the best I have seen, and Please renew it.

        Glad to see there will be a season 2.

        As I do with Survivor and Big Brother, I keep all of the episodes of Capture on my Tivo after watching them when broadcast. Then at the end of the season, when the winner is announced, I go back and watch all of the episodes in a very short period of time, back to back. It is interesting to see how the winner got to the end.

        Oh, Thank Goodness. This is such a relief. I had read this before, but my mind must have read it the wrong way :P. Now that I had gone back and read it again, it it True! So Excited. Can’t wait for it to Air. One day I am going to be on this show, but for now I will have to just watch it from my couch. CAN NOT WAIT! #CaptureisBack #Relief P.S: It says “Submissions for contestants for this epic reality game show are being accepted now from people from all ages and from every corner of the country. ” It says ALL AGES. xD maybe I can actually get on 😉

      I watched the whole season twice. I talk about it very much to my friends, and try to get them to watch it to.Gives me shivers every time some one is chased. Please Season 2!

  5. Wayne C says

    Watched all episodes last year. Hope for Seasons 2, 3 and 4.

    CW, I understand the ratings were rather low but you had a group of dedicated watchers who really enjoyed it.

    • Cal says

      Exactly. Hope this goes on like Survivor. (Second Favorite Tv Show) It has had like 24 seasons. Forgive me if I am wrong. I am not 100% positive.

  6. Susan Rothenbuhler says

    Hubby and I LOVED this show! It is a different level of reality show and really gets us biting our nails, cheering, screaming…lol
    We want many many more seasons of this excellent program!

  7. Kit Ahnert says

    My whole family loved this show! Please come back for another season! We all sat down to watch this together. It was wonderful.

    Ok. So what ever random family has a nielson box (I’m assuming in the Midwest) controls TV? So over it. Even if you can’t get demographic info. You can get real time ratings from Cable and satellite views. Plus super accurate ratings with netflix and Hulu numbers. Sure, the demographic isn’t keyed in as well as the 10,000 Nielson boxes projecting fake numbers for all of America. But that’s what connecting Facebook to your hulu is for. Duh. Nielson is dumb, overrated, and really not a standard at all. I call for season 2.
