Reception[edit]

Daniel Feinberg panned the show, writing for The Hollywood Reporter that any "momentum Hit & Run builds in the early episodes - and it builds a tremendous amount - basically dissipates due to increasingly dumb narrative developments."[10] In the Decider, Joel Keller recommends the show saying the show "boasts a fine international cast, an interesting premise, and opens up a lot of story avenues without confusing the viewer".[11]
