I reviewed "Human Target" in Friday's column, but I have a couple of spoiler-specific thoughts coming up just as soon as I learn to live in the now...
First, it's very strange to see Tricia Helfer playing the helpless, complaining woman in need of rescue here, since after all her years on "Battlestar Galactica," I could very easily see her as a female version of Chance telling her own whiny client to shut up while she kicks some butt. (Also weird seeing Mark "Duck Phillips" Moses as a disgruntled, gun-and-bomb-toting hostage taker.)
Second, do not expect the Danny Glover cameo to lead anywhere. It was just something the producers tried, both to hearken back to the '80s action movies that are partly this show's inspiration, and to give a sense that Chance is always moving on to the next client. At one point, they wanted to try to get a similarly famous star to cameo each week, but that proved impossible.
Third, I'm a fan of the Vertigo version of the comic book character, and I was briefly annoyed that the show bore so little resemblance to either the Peter Milligan comics or even the original Len Wein version. But in the end I let that go and accepted this was an action show that happened to borrow the title and the name Christopher Chance, turned my brain off and had fun watching stuff blow up.
What did everybody else think?
