I was able to burn through a couple of my recorded shows last night, which is always a treat.  One of them was a “Premier Event” (whatever that means) of a new show on Fox, Human Target.  Based on the little-know comic book of the same name, it piqued my interest when I saw a commercial for it.  I told my system to record as many of them as were scheduled, and here we are.  The premier will have an encore showing tonight after American Idol, and the pilot (which is actually a different episode) will air Wednesday in the same time slot.  If you can’t watch it tonight, schedule your TiVo.  If you can’t do that, then I suggest you watch it here.  Long and short of it is, YOU REALLY NEED TO CHECK THIS SERIES OUT!!!

The CGI (for the train) is on the “meh” side of things, but considering it’s on broadcast television I think it’s pretty good.  The writing is good, the characters are cleanly defined, and the action is awesome.  The fight in the train car is one of the best sequences I’ve ever seen on TV (and I’m evidently not the only one).  Again, if you want a fun show to watch this season, be sure to tune in to Human Target!

    I watched this last night and have to say I like it. It has got a lot of potential. I’ve liked the main actor since Boston Legal, and a few other shows like the first few of Fringe, but the real star is Watchmen’s Jackie Earle Haley. Jackie plays a small but probably psychotic assistant who may very well be to this show what Barney is to How I Met Your Mother.

    As for the CGI, this is the pilot episode so I’m hoping the budget increased a bit for the actual series. FOX gave it a premier spot before the premier of 24, and its regular time will be after American Idol so it’s got more than the normal chance FOX will give a show.

  • Yeah, I loved his character too. It was clear that he was just as dangerous as Chance, only not in a “punch your face in” kind of way. More a “you won’t wake up tomorrow” kind a way.
