    Human Target. The new show on CTV and Fox. Yep, it's on Fox. The crappy channel that cancels most good shows. The Pilot was great and so are all the episodes. I should stop talking. You're not here to listen to me ramble. Pirate the show if you can't watch it on television. The show is that awesome!

    We. Love. This. Show.

    "We" because Wife® enjoys it as much as i do.

    Such a fun action show with over the top scenes... it's based off of the DC comic, and it's a GOOD comic-to-TV conversion. (i have never read the comic, so i can't tell how closely it follows, but it's amazingly comic-like in it's action and scripting, which works so well.)

    PS: Guerrero says "dude" in just about every sentence he speaks... and it's completely ok.

    Such a fantastic show.

    The episode airing today looks great! I like the direction the series is going in. Hopefully, Fox won't cancel this awesome series.

    Meh.

    Hardly anybody on GBAtemp likes Human Target. Lockdown was an okay episode. It didn't have the humour like the other episodes. It wasn't bad. It just wasn't interesting. A new episode is coming on /A\ today. I have OTA (over the air) television so I can't see it. I'll just pirate it.

    Baptiste was a great episode. We learned more about Chance's past and the employer he left. Baptiste is a new bad-ass 'villian'. He's probably going to come back considering the remark he made about the FBI officers watch at the end of the episode.

    The next episode doesn't look that good. Chance is involved with yet another girl. The daughter of the boxer he's trying to save. Hopefully, this episode will be brief on the melodramatic scenes and move on to the action scenes that made me start to watch Human Target to start with.

    Nope, it's Mark Valley who's doing this show. Not Jack Bauer.
    I can see the similarities, though.

    I meant Jack doesn't approve because Human Target is competition for his show, 24.

    This show is consistently good. I enjoy each episode more than the last. Hell, this last one, with the UFC style tourney, that was damned solid. I thought it'd be overly cliche from the start, but they pulled it all off VERY well.

    I look forward to each show.

    Cornerman was an awesome episode. Had just the right amount of action, fight scenes, romance and suspense. I might even say that it was the best Human Target episode, yet. Baptiste was also really good.

    Hopefully, Fox doesn't cancel this show. I'll be extremely dissapointed if they do.

    Yay. Human Target is on in 4 minutes. I'm glad Canada gets it before USA. :yaycanada:

    Cornerman was good episode. The fight-scenes got kind of boring after a while, though. They kept putting hints here and there about Chance's past. Just reveal it already. After this episode (Victoria), they'll have a lot more info (Christopher Chance).

    Edit1: Finished watching the episode. It was great! More details about Chance's past. Apparently the girl who turned "his world upside-down" goes by the name, Katherine. I can't wait 'till the next episode. Hah, WildWon. You're going to have to wait a few days before seeing this episode!

    OH MY GAWD!
    The latest episode was awesome! Epic fight scene with Guerrero. We know Winston's first name, now! I didn't quite understand what happened at the end of the episode, though. Did his boss take him back? Hopefully, Fox will renew the show for a second season.

    OK , I will give the show an oppurtunity about 2 hours to check whether it is good enough.
