It's not often I can give a show two chances (no pun intended) in the same week, but here's a second round of The Human Target.
The twists are certainly fun. I wouldn't have guessed the flight attendant being one of the bad guys, so that was a bit of a pleasant surprise. But on that same token, it's looking early on like this show's relying a bit too much on the whole "OMG, it's a WOMAN" twist, between the sinister flight attendant, the female hacker, and the reveal for next week.
Good story, good twists, but I can't say much about the really jerky action scenes. The camera jerking around during each of them wasn't a pleasant experience.
Two episodes in and I'm liking what I see, iffy fight sequences aside. "He flew a plane UPSIDE-DOWN!!!" is just the kind of ridiculous, out-there action I need on a weeknight.
MacGruber! Making life-saving inventions out of household materials! MacGruber! Getting in and out of ultra-sticky situations! MacGruber! The guy's a freakin' genius! MACGRUBER!
Good luck getting that theme song out of your head
I must confess ignorance regarding Darwyn Cooke's work; however, if he was quoting JFK speaking on the "New Frontier", then he was most likely quoting Kennedy's acceptance speech at the 1960 Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles.
