“Shut up, Doug.”

Human Target - Salvage & Reclamation television review

“Salvage & Reclamation” may not be my favorite episode of Human Target but the episode has it all in an exotic location, humor, action, and a lovely guest-star with a tie to the past of our mysterious protagonist. Perhaps more than any other episode of the series this one shows the potential of the show’s concept when handled correctly. Called into service by an old flame, Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) heads to South America where he rescues English anthropologist Doug Slocum (Kris Marshall) who has uncovered the location of a plane full of gold which many are willing to kill for. Neither the rescue nor Chance’s reunion go exactly as planned as Chance, Maria (Leonor Varela), and Doug head into the the jungle hunted by the army, drug runners, and a superbly-evil corporate goon (Kim Coates).

Preacher - Sokosha television review

The Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish) finally tracks Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) down. However, thanks to the show’s inconsistencies on how easy and well the cowboy can track it does allow Jesse, Tulip (Ruth Negga), and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) plenty of time to do a little research (in the public library no less) and discover just who the killer is and what he is after. While there are certainly goofy and highly-coincidental aspects to the episode (the public library sure has lots of resources about a mythological murdering cowboy, and Jesse suddenly knows how to get souls), “Sokosha” is a tense episode which works by finally putting Jesse up against the Saint of Killers and finding a way to beat the cowboy… at least for now.
