What Is The Plot of My Dad the Bounty Hunter?
You’d think that the title “My Dad the Bounty Hunter” would be a giveaway of what this series will be about, but that isn’t the case. Before we dive into the plot details of My Dad the Bounty Hunter, let’s take a look at the official synopsis of the series:
“The hyperdrive adventures of two kids who discover their seemingly average joe dad is actually an intergalactic bounty hunter! Dodging dangerous aliens and laser fights galore, this family bonding time goes to the extreme.”
As we said, the title is just a little misleading but in a good way, of course. My Dad the Bounty Hunter is about a father who has an extremely demanding job, and it is demanding enough that the kids miss him at home and his wife has to remind him that he needs to be home more often and spend more time with them. While he agrees, he just can’t compromise work, and his kids are too young to understand that. So, one fine day, the kids decide to take matters into their own hands and hop into the back of their father’s truck without his knowledge, accompanying him to work. Now, his job isn’t exactly the kind where you can bring your kids to work, because he works all the way in space.
Terry, the father, is a bounty hunter, who catches devilish aliens to earn a living. Now, a father and his two kids are all in space together, and there’s an important mission on hand. You will have to watch My Dad the Bounty Hunter to find out more about the mission and how it pans out for the kids, and their not-so-average father. Also, how mad is their mother going to be?
