Review - Human Target Season 2 Episode 3 Taking Ames

"Taking Ames" is the invariant "let's show how loyal the new character is" episode. The new character in questions is Ames. Every character on the show, at heart, is a good person and Ames is no exception. Like Chance, she was drawn into the criminal world out of obligation. Obviously she's prove her loyalty and become a productive member of the team.

So the episode basically goes through the motions with a jewel heist followed by the capturing of the criminal--without any serious twists in there. There are some pleasant moments in there, but nothing that made me really care about the characters.

Ilsa is there to hover around and be a general downer, making sure the team doesn't get out of line. In other words, she's a direct barrier to the team doing awesome things, and considering she's on a show which is only watchable because it can be fun and exciting, she's generally dislikable.

Score: 7.8/10
