Human Target delivers yet another 8/10 (though I haven't seen the Pilot), making this a very good series indeed. The main cast is solid as rock, and the guest star list after only six episodes is almost ridiculously impressive:

Tricia Helfer, a.k.a. Number Sex - sorry, Six - from the new BSG.

Mark Moses from Desperate Housewives (though I stopped watching some way into season two when the show started going bad).

Alessandro Juliani, also from BSG.

Courtney Ford from Dexter (Season 4).

Emmanuelle Vaugier from everything she's ever appeared in. We are *so* blessed she has a recurring role.

Sean Maher from Firefly. How I miss that series...

William Mapother from Lost.

Kristin Lehman, still hot, from way too many *short-lived* TV series.

Holy Obfuscation! William B. Davis himself, from The X Files (NO hyphen!).

Dylan Neal from Dawson's Creek.

Nerdgasm! The super-funny Kevin Weisman from Alias!

Cutegasm! Autumn Reeser, the best thing (tied with Rachel Bilson) from The O.C.

Holy Bureaucratic! Mitch Pileggi, also from The X Files. All we need now is Nicholas Lea to show up and we have a hat trick!

Now making these listings might become exhausting as the series progresses :)

But I digress. I praised the quality of effects in #1.2, "Rewind", but it seems they took so much budget that the effects in every episode since have been of lower quality. Here, for instance, there is some bad green-screen work when Chance makes a landing in the beginning of the episode... Fortunately, the rest of the episode features mostly practical effects and some pulse-pounding action sequences - when you get a quality whiff of Die Hard, you know this episode is a winner. This would be a 9/10 were there not an appearance of the infamous Enhance Button trope. We've seen that bull$#it for what, 30 years, now? Don't the show-runners know people are by now educated enough to know That. Image. Enhancing. From. Pixellated. Mush. Does. Not. Work, for frak's sake?

Still, this has become a weekly must-see.
