Human Target - Tanarak television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to another episode from the First Season of Human Target. “Tanarak” follows the basic structure with Chance (Mark Valley) out to protect a beautiful, smart, and talented woman from those who would do her harm. In this case the woman is Dr. Jessica Shaw (Moon Bloodgood) who has gotten on the bad side of the remote mining community where she practices by looking too closely into the unexplained death of one of their workers. Given the truth could expose the company to millions in litigation, they will do whatever it takes to wipe out the good doctor before any of this sees the light of day.

Human Target - Baptiste television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to another episode from the First Season of Human Target. “Baptiste” may be my favorite episode of the series, although the final episode of the show’s First Season does give it a run for its money. As the title suggests, the episode marks the first appearance of Christopher Chance‘s (Mark Valley) old friend Baptiste (Lennie James) who arrives in Washington for a high-target assassination. The episode also marks the return (and sadly final appearance) of my favorite recurring guest-star as, needing all the help he can get, Chance turns to FBI Agent Emma Barnes (Emmanuelle Vaugier) to stop Baptise from murdering the delegates of a secret Chinese/Taiwan summit in Georgetown.

“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).

Human Target - Run television review

Throwback Thursday takes us back to another episode from the First Season of Human Target. In “Run,” Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) attempts to protect District Attorney Allyson Russo (Kristin Lehman) and her quest to take down of a corrupt criminal empire with the help of a confidential informant who also happens to be her father (William B. Davis). In this instance keeping his client alive means going on the run from gangsters and corrupt cops who have much to lose if the old man decides to turn his ledger over the District Attorney. Adding a challenge to the chase is a tracker unknowingly swallowed by the client, something Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley) helps with, and her her choice to keep her familial connection with her informant secret.
