Human Target, “The Trouble With Harry”

And we’re back for another episode of Human Target this week, also known as FOX Putting The Series Out Of Its Misery Week! This is the penultimate episode of season two and well, it’s not very good. While I was watching “The Trouble With Harry” I found myself enjoying it. Then I thought about it…… Continue reading Human Target, “The Trouble With Harry”

Human Target, “Imbroglio” and “Cool Hand Guerrero”

Due to President Obama’s presence at the Tuscon memorial, FOX postponed Human Target last Wednesday, only they forgot to tell anyone until around 9 p.m. eastern time. They clearly care a lot about this series. Eventually, these two episodes were scheduled for Friday (more confidence!). And due to my desire to not spend two hours…… Continue reading Human Target, “Imbroglio” and “Cool Hand Guerrero”

Human Target, “A Problem Like Maria” and “Communication Breakdown”

Fans of the first season of Human Target are not enjoying the new season. Zack Handlen over the A.V. Club hasn’t been too kind and as someone who hasn’t seen most of the first season, I can’t really judge or complain. But as a first-time viewer, I can’t really find a whole lot to complain…… Continue reading Human Target, “A Problem Like Maria” and “Communication Breakdown”

Human Target, “Dead Head”

From everything I can gauge, it looks like Matt Miller is trying to make sure every case in Human Target season two is somehow connected to one of the five main cast members. This is opposed to last year’s method that saw Chance and company help random hotties all around the world each week. And…… Continue reading Human Target, “Dead Head”

Human Target, “The Return of Baptiste”

Apologies for the delay in this write-up, I’ve been swamped with end of the semester business and unfortunately, that will continue for the next week or so. I’ll try to have some things pre-written, but it’s going to be light around these parts for a while I think. Anyway, this week’s Human Target? Pretty great,…… Continue reading Human Target, “The Return of Baptiste”

Human Target, “Taking Ames”

Apologies for my lack of review for last week’s Human Target, but I didn’t find much to discuss and it was right before Thanksgiving. I took some time off. It happens. Tonight’s episode, “Taking Ames” is probably on the same level of “meh,” particularly because of its focus on one of the team’s new members…… Continue reading Human Target, “Taking Ames”

Luther, “Episode Six”

Luther started immensely strong and then unfortunately toiled away in solid, but not tremendously so procedural fare for a few episodes before then flipping the switch on the crazy last week. In the finale to this series’ six-part first run, that sense of crazy continued a nice pace without going too far off the deep…… Continue reading Luther, “Episode Six”

Season Premiere — Human Target, “Ilsa Pucci”

Writing about the Human Target season two premiere is particularly interesting to me for a few reasons. First of all, I have rarely, if ever, just jumped into a series without seeing most of the episodes leading up to said jump-in point. I literally can’t think of any series that I’ve done that with in…… Continue reading Season Premiere — Human Target, “Ilsa Pucci”

Luther, “Episode Five”

Luther has been in something of a slump over its past two episodes, and after episode four, I wondered if the last two episodes of this first season (I believe they’re doing a few 2-hour movie event things in the future) would be even close to as interesting as the first hour. Well, after “Episode…… Continue reading Luther, “Episode Five”

Luther, “Episode Four”

I started out loving Luther. You know this. But after a thrilling and frankly fantastic opening episode, the last three have been particularly disinterested in fully exploring the Luther-Alice relationship and at this point, the procedural story has to be really good to make me feel like I’m not losing something when Alice is only…… Continue reading Luther, “Episode Four”

Luther, “Episode Three”

After last week’s slightly disappointing effort, Luther’s third episode strikes a better balance between a specific procedural case, the budding relationship between John and Alice and the unraveling of John’s personal life. It’s still messy and sometimes scattershot, but there’s more good stuff happening here. One thing I’ve noticed about Luther thus far is that…… Continue reading Luther, “Episode Three”

Luther, “Episode Two”

Without Mad Men and Rubicon, Luther has become my only real appointment television for Sunday nights and thankfully, the second episode delivered a number of good procedural moments and a some nice developments in the ongoing stories with John and Alice. What’s interesting about the episode is that after a pilot that spends all its…… Continue reading Luther, “Episode Two”
