Review - Human Target Season 1 Episode 6 Lockdown

Adding to the list of prominent guest stars, Kevin Weisman, Mitch Pileggi, and Autumn Reeser all had fairly big parts in the episode. With a cast of only three characters, there must be a pretty big budgets for guests which is why the producers can get the cream of the crop. I don't know about you, but I'm already waiting for Robert Patrick.

Martin (Weisman) is a genius trapped in an evil corporation bent on using his mind for evil. Chance comes down from the sky to enter the building and saves Martin. To facilitate a safe exit, Winston and Guerrero involve the feds by Guerrero pretending to be an informant with information. The feds arrive and take everyone into custody to sort things about. Another generic story and another awesome episode. The pacing and action is carrying the show right now, and that's all it really needs.

Again, there was the usual hints and insinuations about Chance's past in relation to whoever Chance is protecting. Winston interprets something Chance says about the protectee as projection. It's been done in every episode. Why can't the writers change it up? It was interesting the first couple times, but by the sixth episode, I expect some changes. Not everything hinges on the big mystery about Chance. A standalone is a standalone. There's absolutely no reason not to touch on his past, especially when it adds so little to the show in the first place.

Score: 9.0/10

What was up with those lens flares? They were really annoying in the end.
