Review - Human Target Season 1 Episode 10 Tanarak

Have the writers really run out of ideas? From the past couple episodes, I would have to say yes. The show is likely to be canceled anyways, but looking ahead, there is hardly a creative future for the show.

In many ways, Human Target is more formulaic than police procedurals. There's the hot girl Chance has to save, mysteries about his past, evil doers who outnumber Chance, Winston and Gurrero doing something illegal to back up Chance, and eventually, Chance beating the bad guys to the rousing score of Bear McCreary.

This week, the hot girl was played by Moon Bloodgood, another example of the formula at work. The guest stars need geek cred. And what's more, they come to the cliched jump-off-the-cliff-into-water-or-the-guys-will-kill-you moment, and that allows her to take off her clothes. Chance always gets to work with hot girls, and they are all enthralled by him in the end.

There's so much potential wasted in the leads and the premise of the show. With a cancelation looming, one could only wonder what the show have been if the writers were more creative.

Score: 8.5/10
