Wednesday Comments – Vertigo Worry

I'm genuinely worried about the future of Vertigo. I'm worried for a couple of reasons. One reason I'm worried is because a few of the titles I enjoy are ending. Another reason I'm worried is because it doesn't really have a critical darling title in »»

Human Target - Episode 2-13 Review

Wow. This is what Human Target has become, a melodramatic mess. Sigh... What began as a promising action drama is now a laughably sad waste of television, with little plot, horrible character development, and painful scene after painful scene. At least in the first season, you'd just groan at how the plot was the same. Now, everyone is bad. »»

Human Target - Episode 2-12 Review

When Human Target has to stoop to framing an episode around a guy no one cares about talking to Chance, it's not even surprising anymore. "The Trouble with Harry" has the usual action scenes, which are the primary reason for watching these day, a basic plot for the characters to be painfully unfunny, and more forced romance between Ilsa and Chance to the point where they kiss. Luckily, what began as a epic action drama and became a random blob of stuff will likely come to an end next week when the season finale airs. »»

Human Target - Episode 2-11 Review

With Fox's latest move to take the post-Idol slot away from Human Target and assign it a Monday burn off along with Lie to Me, it's clear Human Target will have a short lifespan beyond the 13 episodes this season. There's really not more to say at this point. The first season had plenty of awesome and epicness, but the plots were the exact same each week. The second season, retooled to attract female viewers, has had more diversity between episodes but is still mediocre at best. »»

Human Target - Episodes 2-9 & 2-10 Review

We're near the end of Human Target's second season, and if one thing is perfectly evident, it's that Ilsa Pucci is a horrible character. Indira Varma is fine in the role given what little the writers give her. When Ilsa opens her mouth, you can pretty much guess that she's asking why Chance is doing x, y, and z. And the viewers still don't get it, the writers think, so we'll reinforce the point that she wants to keep an eye on things but is clueless how these operations work. »»

Human Target - Episodes 1-7 & Episode 1-8 Review

The good thing about tonight's two episodes is that they move fairly fast and the characters are always doing something. Unfortunately, neither episode was particularly interesting with regards to plot or characterization. »»

My Lists of the Best of Television From 2010

By and large, numbered list are useful only for entertainment purposes. Without standard criteria, lists reflect authors' personal feelings and tastes. And even if there were a checklist for television show attributes, this is still television where everything is widely varied. My mindset is that lists are immensely fun to read and write. It allows for reflection on the past which is sometimes necessary when episodes continue to be produced and watched. I didn't feel like writing much at the end of the year, but I typed some random lists--no criteria, no quantification, just whatever came to mind (and trying to avoid overlaps). »»

Human Target - Episode 2-6 Review

Newsflash: Chance doesn't belong in the suburbs with normal folks. No, that couldn't be inferred by the fact that Chance's job is to maim people--the writers need an entire episode to spell it out piece by piece."The Other Side Of The Mall," in true »»

Human Target - Episode 2-5 Review

While the first season was overly predictable to a T, at least it was epic at times. The retooled Human Target, although more less predictable, lacks character. »»

Human Target - Episode 2-3 Review

"Taking Ames" is the invariant "let's show how loyal the new character is" episode. The new character in questions is Ames. Every character on the show, at heart, is a good person and Ames is no exception. Like Chance, she was drawn into the criminal world out of obligation. Obviously she's prove her loyalty and become a productive member of the team. »»

Human Target - Episode 2-1 Review

Despite having American Idol as a lead in a few times last season, Human Target simply couldn't keep its audience as the ratings dropped each week. I would attribute that to the general repetitiveness and predictability of the plots. Still, Fox gave »»

Human Target (The Complete First Season) - DVD Review

Wednesday Comments – Torn About Human Target
