Just a headsup for anyone who has been reading these threads and hesitating to watch this show.

FX is having a 6 hour Human Target marathon on February 27th starting at 2pm with the Pilot episode.

I take it there's not much interest in the show either here or generally? If so that's a shame since I've seen an ep or two and quite enjoyed it.

I've seen every episode so far. Don't hate it, but it isn't must see TV either. Not sure how much I care about learning about Chance's past. Maybe it will lead to something juicy, but right now it is just tedious.

Really dig the show... I'm glad it's not really serialized... there needs to be more "one and done" type action/drama shows on TV, IMO.

(thats also why I like Leverage so much)

It doesn't get alot of comments here like Lost, but it does generate some interest here. The ratings are decent, though not spectacular. It's a fun action-packed hour and it's non-serialized so you can watch it anytime without feeling lost.

I think this show is awesome....... kind of a Sledgehammer meets James Bond feel to it. I hope it sticks around.

Although I liked this episode it felt more like a TV show than a movie. All the other episodes prior to this one felt like action movies.

Anybody else get a Raiders vibe from the preview for the next episode?

This show seems to have a good approach. Make every episode stand-alone, but hint at something happening on down the line. Once that occurs, take care of it with a two-parter and that's that.

Was Autumn Reeser the tech girl? If so, I don't get the love.

I love me some Autumn Reeser too. She put some life into The OC, as the series was going downhill.

Loved her on The O.C. If only they had killed Marrissa off at the end of Season 1 we may have gotten Autumn sooner.

Another FUN episode.
The girl with the glasses is a CUTIE.
Really liking this show.
Wish FOX would leave it alone and let build an audience.

Who was that Tech guy Chance saved? Was it the Tech guy from "ALIAS"?

Kevin Weisman played Marshall on Alias, who was indeed the Tech guy.

As far as I know, it's staying on Wednesday's at 8pm until it's season ends in April.

Do a Google search on Autumn Reeser. I don't think she's smoking hot like an Erica Durance, but she is really cute.

I liked this episode the best so far. It's not a must watch for me, but I'm enjoying it. Chi McBride and Jackie Earle Haley make good co-stars.

I thought Autumn Reeser looked cuter here than in The O.C. I like the glasses and the haircut.

Quickly becoming one of my favorite new shows...

Has an excellent mix of live action and not afraid to go dark and nasty while keeping its action vibe.

I hope this one gets renewed

I did. I thought she was okay. Not bad looking but also not worth getting excited over.
