I’m glad most of all that Human Target got picked up. That’s been the new show this season that I’ve enjoyed the most. Mark Valley, Chi McBride and Jackie Earl Hailey all have good chemistry and the show is fun. It’s got a nice little, and I stress, little mythology working for it. No big heavy, seasons-long story arc bogging it down. I just hope it can survive on Fridays.
