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
That show really grew on me last year, and this year (with Danny Devito) looks especially funny. The promos ("you're banging your sister?") are killing me this season, and I'm really looking forward to this season.
