Had lots of potential
21 June 2003 | by (Maryland, USA) – See all my reviews

This could have been a great series. Great storyline, pulled from a comic book with a substantial cult following; very competent cast (especially Springfield and Coleman, both of whom paid their dues in daytime TV) with good chemistry among one another.

A previous reviewer summarized the plot fairly well. Two minor points, however:

1) Chance's fee was *10%* of the client's annual salary (not the entire annual salary) and

2) Chance and his crew were not "Five people who did not exist", they were 4 people who were well known to several governments who had hired them to protect various dignitaries, and allowed Coleman's character full access to government records, as well.

I do disagree with the characterization of the storyline as "pretty unbelievable." This was science fiction/fantasy, based on a comic book. In other words, escapist entertainment. It wasn't *supposed* to be true to life, any more than series such as "The Incredible Hulk" or "Batman". As such, I think "Human Target" hit it's mark very nicely.

Too bad ABC pulled HT after it's summer replacement run of seven episodes; perhaps with more time, it would have found an audience.
