This is a thread for the Show Human Target, which Apoco and I have decided to like. It's full of actors from scifi shows and imo has a very similar feel to MacGyver in terms of tone, tempo, and story arch. It just has more guns and less HS chemistry...

Anyway, I like the way the art direction team on this show works, they put a lot of visual in the show on top of the interesting weekly adventures.

I loved the picture on the subway wall in 'Baptiste.' How it matched the dialogue of Chance being caste out after finding a greater truth and rejecting his masters.

A recent episode was just chock-full of Indiana Jones references, which happens to be one of the best movies ever so it was all very full of awesome.


Anyway, if your a fan of the show, or one of the guest actors, or whatever, contribute here.

This sentence was just funny for some reason. :P

Anyway, there are plenty of guest stars to satisfy all kinds of nerdy tastes (Six and Gaeta from BSG were in an episode each, the doctor guy from Firefly, and Robert Hawkins from Jericho).
My favorite character is easily Guerrero, and not just because he's played by Rorschach.

This series is now one of my top favorite shows, and it's only been on for eight episodes!

Hulu! Episodes stand alone pretty well so don't worry about what you've missed.

I had never heard of it before poko recommended it to me. I think it is fairly good at slipping under the radar, seeing as how when I've visited Hulu there haven't been any links to it on the main page. Or, at least none that I saw.

I could step it up a notch and say something like:

We condescend to give this trifling a mere moment of our attention on a weekly bases as it suits Us. For this, We feel it should show proper appreciation.

I had never heard of it before poko recommended it to me. I think it is fairly good at slipping under the radar, seeing as how when I've visited Hulu there haven't been any links to it on the main page. Or, at least none that I saw.

And at that point I was mainly recommending the latest episode as I watched it on TV (TU was down). Counting that episode I'd only seen 2.5 episodes. If you had not come back and said you thought it was awesome I would not have bothered to watch the previous episodes and would not have seen the Indy reference episode. So we sorta recommended it to each other.

I watched half of an episode on hulu and then somebody asked for help with calculus so I turned it off. I'll probably bring it back up later cause it did hold my attention and was entertaining. I'm sure to be bored in a little bit.

Because we are secretly symbiotic organisms who are also royalty.

Fair enough. I just couldn't start with the eighth episode, I guess. :P

Warning SPOILERS! for this weeks episode.

This last episode was a little silly, mainly b/c a major corporation wouldn't go that far to cover up one single death. There's proof of entire towns being slowly poisoned by this type of stuff and the companies go about their business. It can take years for a class action lawsuit to really win and take some effect. Heck there is a mining town in Montana where they lined their playgrounds with an asbestos compound they were mining at a time when asbestos's effects were known. So I didn't buy the story.

:steps down from soap box:

Anyway, characters were entertaining as always. Didn't really understand the fight on the big dump truck and that plane had no wheels. How does it land on a normal landing strip? But it was all in good fun.

------
The big guy clearly used to be Lawful Good and is quickly sliding down that slippery slope from neutral good to chaotic good. His DM should take note. I mean he already lost his paladin powers. :P

This week's chick was from such nerdy shows as Terminator Salvation and Day Break, though I know her as the time traveling girl from Journeyman. It seems shows where she gets a reoccurring role don't last long. These women really do throw them selves at the main character. Its getting kind of embarrassing.

She was also in the newest season of Burn Notice, playing a Miami cop.

Maybe they're trying to model it after James Bond.

I thought the same thing, except for the part about his name because I didn't know it.

P.S. Guerrero is still awesome.

This is why I have IMDb as a quick search in my address bar. In my mind he will always be the dude from The Mummy. Which is why his role in Castle was sooo awesome.

Yes, he does very well in this episode and makes a hard perception check.

He was also in Stargate (the movie) and Stargate SG-1, playing Dr. Jackson's father-in-law. And, more recently, he played Mohinder Suresh's father on Heroes. He really gets around.

Human Target was supposed to premiere its second season this coming Friday, but FOX has decided to delay it until November 17th. That's a Wednesday, by the way. It'll air at 8/7 Central. The reason for the sudden change is the recent cancellation of Lone Star, which aired on Mondays. FOX decided to shuffle around a few of their shows, including Lie to Me. An encore presentation of House will now air in what would have been Human Target's time slot. The Good Guys will still follow afterward.

Tonights episode had its moments. The thief chick is still annoying, though thats the point. They showed the preview for the series finale and there is a clip of Guerrero walking away from an explosion and not looking back.
