Human Target, Season 2 -- TV Review
There's not much that needs to be tinkered with when it comes to "Human Target" on Fox. This is a popcorn show primarily focused on guns going off, things blowing up and people making snarky asides while the camera lingers over something beautiful -- like Nepal, or a woman in a short skirt.
Granted, that's a recipe that many shows screw up, but what Human Target got right in its freshman season of 12 episodes was that it avoided too many cliches and, for the most part, understood precisely what it was -- an action series with some intelligence, possibly some dark areas but never an urge to showcase those attributes at the expense of entertainment.
