Did You Know?


Christopher Chance's dog is named Carmine. Along with writer Len Wein, the character of Christopher Chance was created by legendary comic book artist Carmine Infantino. See more »


When Christopher parachutes out of the back of the train, he is shown to be moving in the opposite direction of the train and slide back towards the tunnel entrance. The parachute would have slowed him down very quickly, but not instantly taken him from 200 mph in one direction to 10 mph in the other. See more »


Guerrero: I got to warn you guys, if this gets violent, I'm gonna fight back.
Alfredo the Thug: You think you're gonna fight back?
Guerrero: All right, maybe fight back's a little misleading. I'll take the beating 'cause that's all you two amateurs are cleared to do. And then one night soon, I'm gonna break into your house and kill each of you in your sleep. Probably start with you, Alfredo. That way Steven here can have a few extra days with Marla and the girls. It's only fair.

Processed Cheese and Cardboard
20 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is mildly amusing, just for the cliché after cliché storyline. A protagonist who can do everything (James Bond, pre-Daniel Craig, would be jealous); air ducts large enough to crawl through and fight in (and they're on a train!); and the ever-popular time bomb plot ("We've got to get off this train before it crashes!").

SPOILER: Superman, uh, "Christopher Chance", engages in a shoot-out with an assassin, escapes, then follows the assassin and prepares to shoot him. But *click*! He's out of ammunition! Yes, Mister Perfect was too stupid to check his weapon, and reload after he'd sprayed the area with lead.

Summary: "Human Target" is like Domino's Pizza: it's television of the last resort.
