Most Dangerous Game is an action-thriller series from Quibi that is set in the near future where hard times have befallen society. Liam Hemsworth plays a hard-up family man named Dodge Tynes who is desperate for money to provide for his pregnant wife. He agrees to participate in a deadly game that promises a life-changing cash prize of $24.5 million. Dodge has nine days to survive while being hunted by assassins. The hunters are controlled by Christoph Waltz's character, Miles Sellars, a billionaire businessman who has pioneered the game.

The show explores the lengths people will go to for money and the power it can give them. It delves into the question of whether Dodge's sacrifice is worth his family's security and what it means to be willing to risk everything. He enters the game hoping that if he can survive until the end, he can escape his financial worries forever. However, as he becomes more familiar with the intricacies of the game, he realizes that winning might not be as straightforward as he imagined, and he must resolve his personal issues with his mortality and commitment to his family.

Rather than being an adventure with mindless violence, Most Dangerous Game forces the audience to think about the psychological and moral implications of Dodge's situation. The series presents a variation of the concept of the classic 1924 story of the same name by Richard Connell. The concept of a man being hunted like an animal and the consequences of his every move exemplify the fact that there is too much power in the hands of the wealthy elite, and they can easily manipulate society whenever necessary.

The show also explores themes of social justice, as the poor and the powerless are preyed upon for the pleasure and entertainment of the powerful. It highlights the exploitation that goes on within society and questions whether or not such exploitation will continue in a state of informed democracy. Gadon contributes to the storyline as Dodge's wife, who is heavily pregnant with their child, and who represents the human side to the story. She is a depiction of the character's desires and rivalries, and her emotional stability slowly declines as she finds out more about the game, Dodge's competitors, and about her husband's fears.

The series' survival aspect brings in nail-biting thrills as the audience waits with bated breath to see what will happen next. The show's twenty or so minute episodes help keep the pace, and it builds up gradually enough without being overdrawn or dragging. The mini-episode setup of Quibi, coupled with the show's fast pace and action-packed content, makes for an easy-binging, thrilling ride.

The action is fast-paced, with Dodge that uses his intelligence to stay alive, and the characters he meets and interacts with help him with the tools he needs to outsmart his hunters. While he is trying to survive, Dodge is also trying to gain information about his opponents, learn the layout of the city, and hone his capabilities for combat. Waltz's character is the mastermind behind the entire game, and he provides the audience with an insight into the mind of a billionaire who uses power to control the lives of others. His characterization is cold, calculating, and greedy.

Overall, Most Dangerous Game is a thought-provoking, action-packed show that explores the morality of human desire and ambition. The series features a solid cast of actors with excellent performances and stellar production design that helped shape the distinctive atmosphere. The show's focus on social and moral themes makes it not just a thrilling ride, but a reflection on the consequences of human greed, and how society treats its less fortunate when the world seems to be going against them.

Most Dangerous Game is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (16 episodes). The series first aired on April 6, 2020.
