A Quick Review of HUMAN TARGET Premiere on Fox

A quick review on Fox’s premiere episode of Human Target is that so far it’s a bit predictable and bland right now and does not stand out from any other action show.

It had an explosive opening as we’re introduced to Christopher Chance (Mark Valley).

We later meet his partners Winston (Chi McBride) and Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley). These three form their security company that protect clients via Chance being a decoy or shield for his clients.

He’s shart eyed and seems to be a rather intelligent man.

Right now, the episode was just an action hour as Chance protected his client, played by Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica, Burn Notice).

We got very little character history on anyone and we never connected with anyone.

I am hoping they give us more than this as the show continues on. In fact we need to start caring just a touch more about the characters than we do now, or it will not last more than 4 or 5 episodes.

As it stands, Human Target does not seem to relate to the comic books that the show is based on and would seem that there has been some meddling with how this show is written. If you’re a fan of the comic books, you might have to severely adjust your expectations.

The Jury Is Not Out

I don’t like or dislike the show yet. I would love for the Mark Valley starrer to succeed but right now I’m holding my breath.

Sorry I missed the Premiere. They wife was watching the Red Carpet and the Golden Globes. Couldn’t wrestle the remote away from her. No loss, it will air again this week.
I checked Fox’s schedule. They are going to run the Preview and Premiere again on Tuesday and Wednesday following American Idol. An awesome lead in.
Looks like its eventual time slot will be Wednesdays before American Idol.
They must expect big things from this show.
Got to give Fox credit. They know how to give a new show a chance.
