You only need to pad after American Idol live shows, right? these bullshit early rounds of idiots and goofballs usually end on time, right?

So third episode and third day/time.

Are they trying to not have anyone watch?

Correct, the live shows tend to run long due to excessive babbling. The early rounds/auditions all finish on time.

That appears to be the plan.

Well luckily for them they have Idol as a lead-in tonight and should get around 10M or so viewers.

the moving around sucks, but you can't really complain when HT's lead-in is American Idol.

Great episode. The first two episodes had their moments, but EVERYTHING came together here. Funny tense, action packed, even a halfway decent mystery.

They even managed to set up a possible overarcing storyline for the series. Oh, and I'm really digging the hot chick guest star of the week thing they have going.

Without it the show is a huge sausage fest. It needs the the hot guest star of the week.

Where have I seen Aaron, the brother that lived, before? I want to say it was a very short-lived FOX series from several years ago (though Im sure he's been on other shows too).

Wasn't thinking of Firefly, but a show that aired a few years prior. This should be enough info for me to figure it out. Thanks

What is it about hot chicks in formal wear kicking ass that turns me on?



I'm really digging this show so far. I hope they get back to the whole Chance being a bodyguard to someone. This week was out of the norm.

I watched this on Hulu and the first commercial was for Human Target. Meta-advertising?

Congratulations, Fox you successfully slipped the show past me. The weekly TV guide showed "Kitchen Nightmares" as well as the daily listings in the paper. I should've checked DVDTalk or TitanTV.

Looks like they succeeded in there goal. 2 different time slots weren't enough for some but it seems the third did it.

I remembered him from 'Ryan Caulfield: Year One'. I didn't recall his real name and missed it in the credits, so looked it up under FireFly. Anyways, thanks for the help -- you should all be glad this can finally be put to rest.

Yeah, they are definitely getting Bond-quality babes for this show.

Re: Human Target -- "Embassy Row" -- 01/26/10 -- Special Night

Finally got a chance to watch this episode tonight and it was pretty solid.

It's almost like Human Target is a weekly mini James Bond movie. Some pretty good action and stunts in only 43 minutes. I also think it's good that the show's plots are all standalone.

There was some really good fight chererography between Chance and Barnes.

I like Emmanuelle Vaugier and I think she's going to be a great recurring character on the show. Vaugier looked really good in that Red dress, although a little too much makeup.

Hopefully now that it's moving back to Wednesday's at 8pm for it's last 9 episodes, that people will find the show like it, and stick with it.

The motorcycle scene was poorly staged, but I guess you just have to roll with it on its budget.
