TV show description:      
On this reality series, a dozen teams of two enter the Hunting Grounds, a high-tech wilderness compound. They must live there in primitive conditions for one month in a winner-take-all battle to survive. At the mercy of the Game Master, the teams compete against each other for scarce resources and a $250,000 grand prize.

Each episode, different teams are designated as the Hunters. The teams being hunted live on limited rations and wear high-tech equipment that forces them to stay constantly on the move. Hunger and exhaustion are very real problems. Additional food can be found at the Supply Station, but since the Hunters may have the area staked out at any time, a visit to the Station can be extremely risky.

Emotions run high and sabotage is common as the teams all work to stay on the move and out of the range of the Hunters. The individual teams work through the tension and tough conditions, but relationships can be pushed to the breaking point.

Meanwhile, the Hunters are using strategy and GPS technology to track down the other teams and tag them. They do this by activating a pulsating device known as the Talon. When the Hunters have two teams in captivity, the rest of the competitors vote on who stays and who goes.

As the game progresses and teams are eliminated, the Game Master introduces new obstacles and opportunities for teams to sabotage the other hunted teams.

In the end, only one team will walk away with the large cash prize.

Series Finale:     
Episode #10 — The Final Countdown
After weeks of strategizing to secure food and evade capture, the end is in sight. Exhausted and hungry, the final teams must find the strength for one last hunt. The red team of neighbors Rob Anderson and Jacob Kosior come in third. The teal team of twins Jade and Nikita Ramsey come in second. The green team of Antoine Burton and Kareem Dawson, two 21-year-old friends from Philadelphia, won the competition and $25,000 in cash.
First aired: September 25, 2013.

    My husband and I also enjoyed this show very much!!! We stumbled upon it while channel surfing. Was checking to see if a new season will be coming out after the first of the year? PLEEEEEEEEEASE bring it back!!!

    I really enjoyed the premise of this show. There are so many twists and turns that could be added to this show to keep it fresh and entertaining. I hope there will be many more seasons to come.

    My daughter bought the series to catch up with this show and we ended up watching them in marathon with her and her husband. My son also watched the entire season. Advertise this show better and you will get a great following.

    Keep it going. Can’t wait for season 2.

    This was the one TV show that both my husband and I enjoyed watching together (he doesn’t share my taste in TV shows!) and we looked forward to a new episode every week! Capture was one of the few elimination-based reality shows that felt fresh, new exciting and both intellectually stimulating while being just raw fun!
    Here’s hoping yet again, another good show is not cancelled due to low ratings it’s first season out when it just need a little time and good advertising (which Capture did NOT have!) to build a fan-base!

    I had heard great things about cw capture I can truly say everyone was right. It keeps the viewer wanting more and wondering oh god who is going to get captured next .I would love if they renewed capture for season two .It reminded me of hunger games the thrill of the chase agony of defeat.

    My husband and I don’t usually share the same taste in TV shows, but this one was a real winner with both of us. We caught every episode from beginning to end, and really enjoyed it. So bummed the pink team never got the chance to hunt – they were my favorite team! We really hope they do another season of Capture (and bring back the pink team!!!).
