Human Target– Good Premiere
Watched it, expecting to turn it off after 15 minutes.
Ended up being surprised how good it was.
Mark Valley's cockiness was irritating at first, but he does grow on you. Walks the 'confident–douchebag' line without quite crossing it. The fact that he's smart and observant helps you like him.
And they got Jackie Earle Haley in there too (the only good thing about Watchmen). That's genius casting, and of course, his character is perfect for him.
Fight scenes were good, gritty, and just over-the-top enough to be fun, without the ridiculous over-reliance on close jump cuts and the hero just hitting an "I win" button that you see so often in (bad) action films.
There was one major BS moment (don't really buy them parachuting out the back of a train at 220mph and winding up with only scrapes and bruises)... but overall, pretty solid. I've seen plenty of action movies that were much more amateurish in all phases.
Hope they can keep it rolling.
Monkhouse: I want to die like my Dad did, peacefully, in his sleep... not screaming in terror like his passengers.
SystemShock: About Faux News/the Right-Wing Bubble™ – the first thing a cult does is claim that everyone else is lying to you.
Kitty: ROMNEY LANDSLIDE! Man its going to be fun in PO after Election Day.
Platypius: I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.
Seamus: Saw Bjork poop on stage back in the day. It blew my teenage mind.
I thought it was another blatent "Burn Notice" ripoff. But I will still watch it until it gets way to over the top.
Ti me up
It was pretty entertaining.
More than one BS moment, though. Good guy and bad guy both pointing empty guns at each other, going click-click? Please.
"Son, what happens when you fire the last round in a magazine on a semi-auto?"
13yo son - "The slide locks back in the open position. No way you wouldn't know it's empty."
"Good, you already know more about pistols than 99% of the screen writers in Hollywood."
You see lots of happy cyclists. When was the last time you saw a runner smiling?
Jumped the shark
The show "jumped the shark" in only its second episode. The upside down plane was so over the top it was ridiculous.
Not to mention, they have an open hatch door on a plane at 30,000 feet, and they don't get sucked out by the lack of pressure. Now I can let this slide since they can claim they were in an unpressurized part of the fuselage between the outer and inner walls. But how did they get in there without being sucked out when they opened the hatch to get in there? And how could they speak in there, let alone breathe? And not freeze to death?

Fun show, and Jackie Earle Haley is great, but it really strains the bounds of credibility.
Eff the King's Guard. Eff the city. Eff the King.
I'm with Rufus. I'll keep watching it cuz it is fun. The first episode was much better IMO. Airplane upside down. OK, maybe. Open hatches at 50F below and no air. Yeah right. Hot evil girly agent. That was good. I just wish Hollywood writers would read something besides comic books when they do their research.
I has potential. But the plots are very thin now, and if they don't move towards some longer story arcs pretty quickly, it will get very old, very fast.
Stout beers under trees, please.
If you liked the "evil girly agent" you should catch the last season of Dexter. She was in quite a few episodes and showed quite a bit of skin in a couple of them.
