Human Target

Saw Baptiste a few days ago and loved it. I look forward to this show every week.

I love this show, but this ep. looks like it could be the throwaway for the season. Cage fighting eps. seldom work.

The cage fighting aspects didn't provide much for the episode, but this was a good episode for Guerrero. (Not that he has a weak one.) The way they snared Prentiss was pretty neat. Not the strongest episode, especially following "Baptiste", but stronger than many shows on television, particularly network, now and the last few years.

I liked this episode, but maybe just because it gave me a geekgasm when I saw that the guest stars were Boomer and Methos.

Dude, you need a DVR/Tivo with a Season Pass function stat!

You also need to get a new PC or Mac since you said yours is broken. These episodes you missed you be online still for a few weeks on Hulu.

And how the heck are you logging on here with No PC access? Iphone or some other means?

Great episode.

For other shows I'd be tired of they always going back in time after the first scene, but I just don't mind here.

Yeah my thoughts exactly, especially since I'm re-watching Highlander now (but I'm only on S1 so no Methos yet). Not as good as last week's episode but still pretty good.

This had the potential to be bad, but it was actually pretty good.

My thoughts exactly. I usually hate the token "cage fighting" episode in series like this. But they handled this one pretty decently and with a nice twist or two throughout. I really enjoy this show.

I'm logging in via my PS3.

I downloaded this episode from PSN. A whole lot of fun from what could have been a bad episode. It was great seeing Peter Wingfield as the villain. He deserves more work.

As for Grace Park...

I thought the hairstyle suited her quite nicely.

^ She really doesn't. Still a good looking woman though.

love this show but hate the trend the last few eps of starting the show with a scene near the end then having a 'four days earlier' etc

Don't like that, prefer to keep it linear

This is pretty good, for an action/adventure TV show. I don't normally watch shows like this. But Simon West's involvement originally piqued my interest.

When shows start to use this crutch they tend to get addicted to it. See Alias. It gets old very quickly.

This ep. was surprisingly good for having a cage fight premise. Not as good as past one, but still brought the fun and thrills. I agree that Gurerro really shined more than usual in this one.

Grace Park looks good, but her acting ability leaves something to be desired, not that it really mattered. I like how this series gives nods to James Bond, like having the hero end his mission by (presumably) nailing the hot chick as he leaves.

This heavily reminded me of some 80s films, and GPs hair didn't help on that front.

That said, I think they kicked it up a notch and gave this a little high class feel similar to a Bond flick.

Methos.

I think this was more a character piece anyway. Since they probably didn't know if they'd get a second season I'm betting this season culminates with Chance's old boss. They've been heavily playing him up as looming in the background for the past several episodes.
