Sad day indeed.  First we here at Cinema Static and our readers lose Stargate Universe to lousy ratings.  (You’ll see my dissection of that scenario in a future post.)  But now news on the street is that Fox has added Human Target, starring Mark Valley to the halls of canceled TV series.

I had come to enjoy Human Target and they had started developing the characters in a very productive fashion and I was enjoying it more in the second season than the first.

But alas, another Cinema Static favorite has spiraled out of control and cratered in the land of cancelled shows.

Boo.  I was really starting to enjoy Jackie Earle Haley‘s portrayal of Guerrero too!  We’ll be seeing more of Jackie Earle Haley in the upcoming movies, Dance of the Mirlitons, Bolden! & the Tim Burton directed Dark Shadows remake.  We’ll be seeing Mark Valley in the upcoming project, Medallion, on the silver screen.

HUMAN TARGET: Chance's (Mark Valley, L) daily meditation is interrupted by Ilsa Pucci in the HUMAN TARGET Season Two premiere episode "Ilsa Pucci"

At the season finale of season 1, Winston was abducted.  In the Nov 17th season 2 premiere of Human Target, titled “Ilsa Pucci”, that situation is remedied rather quickly in the teaser opener.  And immediately upon rescuing Winston, Chance disappears to a meditative retreat in Nepal.

Human Target starring Mark Valley

His newest client shows up in Nepal after tracking him down, she needs his protection and he returns to San Francisco and the team reassembles to protect their new asset.  But this time around in Human Target, Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) is more focused, Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley) seems even more cold & calculating & Winston (Chi McBride) is just still Winston!

The new client in this episode is Ilsa Pucci, played by Indira Varma (HBO’s Rome) and a new player in the show is Ames, played by the devilish and lovely Janet Montgomery (HBO’s Entourage).

A Quick Review of HUMAN TARGET Premiere on Fox

January 17, 2010

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 […]
