What is Human Target?

Human Target is AWESOME, that's what it is.

Their mission is to save people, and also do awesome crap that is totally impossible, but it's so awesome that you don't care.

So at the end of last season Emerson Codd from Pushing Daisies got kidnapped by goons. Now John Scott from Fringe and Rorschach from Watchmen have to work with Armand Assante and Mysterious British Woman (Indira Varma) to rescue him.

Season 2 premieres tonight on FOX at 8/7c

    This was one of the few shows that loved last season and was hoping it would stick around.

    It has some of the best fights I've seen in a TV show. I'm a little on the fence on how these new characters will work out. It smells like executive meddling to me, but hopefully it turns out good.

    I don't watch much TV live, but I think this will be the exception.

    From the changes I've heard about since last season I'm not too excited for this. I'll give it a shot but my hopes are not up

    The first season was like watching a season long Harrison Ford movie, and that makes it amazing

    New season felt like it was trying to bring the x-treme though

    After the first episode I am cautious. The first season was a huge surprise. The only reason I watched the pilot was because it was on before 24, but I was hooked.

    The retooling is obvious and annoying, and I dislike how quickly they wrapped up the cliffhanger. BUT, hopefully next episode it will return to business-as-usual with a couple of new characters and it will be like not much changed. I don't have a problem with the new characters themselves. At least not yet.

    So this show is good, eh? I saw the commercials and thought it seemed kind of cheesy. I'll have to check it out.

    First season is my second-favorite new show from last year (first being Community). It's fantastic.

    Yes, the commercials look/looked cheesy. That's because Fox can't condense the pure awesome that was the train fight from the pilot into a 30 second commercial.

    I had forgotten about this. This episode was so so until Jackie Earle did an awesome punch. Now I am amused.

    Blergh. I used to love the opening theme. I had a feeling they would change it, and it's now 1000x worse. (Rest of the show was good although I'm hoping the new "boss" isn't really in it that much. She tends to show up in a lot of shows I watch and never really clicks with me.)

    Yeah what the hell did they do to the original awesome Bear McCreary opening :/

    I have to agree. The original opening was so big and majestic. It reminded of some TV themes from the 70's-80's. They made it into some typical douche rocker stuff.

    I kinda like this episode. Guerrero was top notch as always and I can't believe they showed the Lassiter's(from Psych) hand all mangled. I don't like how they dropped the whole secret book thing like a hot rock. It was the point of the last season's finale, but it's over in the opening scene.

    The whole thing felt like a rush job to get the new characters on, which I'm not too thrilled about in the first place. The saving grace of the show are the fights, so if those stay great I will be satisfied I guess. Next week's stuff looks pretty good.

    Yeah only thing that bothered me about season 2 was the new theme. Otherwise, I love this show.

    Still love the show.

    Not quite sold on Thief-girl yet, but I am liking BossLady.

    Yes, the show was awesome last season, but I'm not entirely opposed to them shaking things up a bit.

    I do like everyone's response to Guerrero though. Just amazing every time he's on screen.

    "That reminds me of a joke about your brother. Carl, right? What's that car of his? A green Miata? The punchline is 'Drove off a bridge', wanna hear it?"

    I caught the first episode of the season after watching he last season in its entirety. The premier was pretty good I thought, Guerrero was cool as always and I like the thief chick, might be an interesting dynamic, who knows. I think the show will get better.

    If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten in your presence.

    The change in theme song is borderline tragic, and I was a bit disappointed by how much they rushed the resolution of last season's finale in an obvious effort to get to network-mandated changes, but everything I enjoy about the characters was still there and I expect to continue enjoying this show.

    The show last night was good, Pucci is fine just being the background lady with the money who just checks in. Verdict's still out with thief girl. But the core three are still as good as last season. I did enjoy the scene trying to use all the new technology, and trying to scan in the picture.

    Bad thing is that it got a 1.4 last night, down from a 1.8 on it's season premiere. That's near Lone Star territory, although HT's probably a lot cheaper to make.

    It's going to get American Idol as a lead-in for a few episodes in Jan/Feb, so I'd probably wait on making a call on its renewal chances until those numbers come in.

    Decent episode. Not sold on thief-girl, but if she gets some character development quickly she will probably be less annoying.

    Ratings are a concern, but a ratings drop on the day before Thanksgiving isn't really a big deal. Or maybe it's just that I've been expecting it to get cancelled since Day 1 that I'm just thankful it is still on the air. Much like The Good Guys.

    Just watched the last episode, and was kind of hoping that
    Spoiler:

    Otherwise, I'm really not liking the new characters. I wish they had stuck with returning one off characters as opposed to giving us two new characters who seem to exist for the singular purpose of annoying the main characters.

    Wow, I didn't even realize this was back on.

    Holy fucking shit, watching episode 1 of the new season.

    That sucker punch. I shot my drink out of my nose.
