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!
