Review: Human Target 1x1

Human Target

In the US: Wednesdays, 9pm, Fox

Why would a man choose to put himself in the line of fire? Well, you're not going to find out from a show like Human Target, are you? It's on Fox.

But at the very least, you'll probably have a bit of escapist, not particularly clever fun with lots of stunts while you're watching it. That, at least, is the most plausible thing about it.

Review: 24 - 8x1-8x4

24

In the US: Mondays, 9/8c, Fox. Started Sunday 17th January 2010
In the UK: Starts Sunday January 24 2010 on Sky 1/Sky 1 HD

Well, we're eight seasons in and, seriously, what do you expect me to tell you that you don't already know about 24? In this new season/'day', Jack Bauer comes across some epically scary terror plot in typical US intelligence fashion - 24 hours before it's due to happen - he runs around a lot, in real time.

He says damn it a lot, and he tortures lots of people, all in the event of necessity. And you end up with a weekly adrenaline addiction.

What? You think they're going to change the formula now? Oh wait, they have, just the teensiest tiniest bit.

Heroes 4x15 - Pass/Fail

In the US: Monday 18th January 2010, 9pm, NBC
In the UK: April/May, BBC2. Probably

One of the accusations that used to be - and still is - made at Heroes is that no one ever dies. It doesn't take.

Now, as the last two volumes have shown, that ain't really true any more - if someone appears to die, the producers make sure there'll be a clue in the episode that said person will be coming back, or said person will be back before the end of the episode. Otherwise, they really are dead.

That doesn't mean they can't come back in another form, though - and so it is with Pass/Fail, where a huge wodge of long-dead characters came back in a reasonably good, if fan-ficcy episode. I won't tell you how until after the jump. Spoilers ahoy.
