Human Target -- Season Premiere -- "Ilsa Pucci" -- 11/17/10

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Picking up from the thrilling first season cliffhanger, Chance and Guererro stage a daring rescue of Winston from the hands of his torturous kidnappers. Two beautiful women join the team: billionaire philanthropist Ilsa Pucci, who fears for her life after the mysterious death of her husband; and Ames (Janet Montgomery), a chameleon-like master thief who inadvertently becomes involved with the plot to murder her new associate.


Janet Montgomery (Entourage) and Indira Varma (Rome) are joining the cast/team in season 2. Varma is a series regular, while Montgomery is a recurring guest star.

13 episodes for now. Please let there be more

Trailer/EPK about season 2:

I am soooo psyched for this. Probably the most fun action show from last season.

I can't wait. I was disappointed when we didn't get this in October, but time flew.

One complaint that I have about the commercials for this season are that they completely spoil the cliffhanger from the finale concerning
Spoiler:
Chi McBride's rescue by featuring him prominently in all the spots I've seen.
It is a minor gripe, but I am still looking forward to more Human Target!

Here's a nice little read previewing the season. Matt Miller, the new showrunner, talks about the additions of Varma and Montgomery to the show. If your not familiar with Matt Miller, he was a writer/producer on Chuck and Las Vegas before joining Human Target.

For anyone who is new to Human Target or forgot what happened 7 months ago, here is a recap video of season 1. It's really short and there is no narration.

I hope the new cast additions don't put a stop to the POA of the week rotation. However I suspect it will.

With the new additions does that mean Emmanuelle Vaugier won't be returning? I thought she had amazing chemistry with Mark Valley.

Ahh! - is she the reporter?

CA is on a summer schedule, so perhaps she's free to film for this during the remainder of the year?

I'm jumping in on this. I caught a couple of episodes on Hulu, and the show looks good.

It really built the momentum at the end of the season last year. We're all hoping they can keep that going.

Thanks for the reminder, I would have forgotten about this. I've changed boxes since last show so I need to reset my DVR to get this one. Who did Janet Montgomery play on Entourage? She looks familiar.

Competition wise tonight it's going against:

NBC: Dateline: William and Kate special

ABC: The Middle/Better with you

CBS: Survivor


Survivor is going to win the timeslot hands down. But 2nd/3rd place is a tough call, The Middle has been doing really well lately and Better with you just gets the leftover viewers.

Regarding Emmanuelle Vaugier...I read an interview with her from August and she said there is a possibility that her character Emma Barnes could come back. Since it's mid-November now, they are probably pretty close to finishing up the original 13 episode order. I would say the only way she comes back is if the show gets the back 9 or more episodes.

Thrilled to see this back.

I'm reserving judgement on the added female characters as I don't think the show really needed them, and if they were going to add them then the obvious choices were Vaugier (as recurring) and Autumn Reeser as permanent.

Rushed the cliff hanger but the bank scene was bad ass.

Re: Human Target -- Season Premiere -- "Ilsa Pucci" -- 11/17/10

I liked the way they ended the cliffhanger right off the bat, most season premieres try to stretch it for another episode. This approach allowed for possible newcomers to get on board quickly without much background explanation. My only concern is the need they apparently feel to add women to the team. Granted, both were good eye candy, but I don't see what they will bring; whatever it is I doubt it's women viewers.

Guerrero is such a bad ass!!!

Did anybody doubt who the bad guy would be when Rick Hoffman showed up? That dude just oozes evil.

Good premiere. I liked both of the new female characters.
