Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This is the thinking of Christopher Chance, a mysterious security agent for hire who assumes different identities, at times literally becoming a human target on behalf of his clients. Using the popular DC Comics title as a springboard for riveting and intelligent action and adventure, Human Target provides a thrill ride with no clear boundaries. Resourceful, driven and compelled by a force known only to him, this take-charge antihero will barter his services for an aged bottle of scotch, much to the chagrin of his shadowy associates. If someone is threatened or a life is in danger...leave it to Chance.

Check your disbelief at the door and prepare to thoroughly enjoy Human Target, a Fox TV series combining drama, humor, and action--lots of action--and debuting on DVD with all 12 first-season episodes (plus bonus material) on three discs. At center stage in this DC Comics adaptation is Christopher Chance (Mark Valley, in a very different role from his familiar turn on Boston Legal), an erstwhile assassin who turned from killing people to protecting them after a life-changing encounter a few years earlier (detailed in a semi-prequel that is the season's last episode). Now, joined by ex-cop Winston (Chi McBride) and wiseacre-genius-jack-of-all-trades Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley), Chance takes on a variety of clients, partly for the money but mostly for the fun ("Will I get to ride on it?" is his response when the designer of California's first bullet train asks for his protection). Whether it's in the service of a fellow who has "the skeleton key to the Internet" (which could spell "the end of information security as we know it" if it falls into the wrong hands), a district attorney with a tracking device planted in her body by the criminal gang that wants to kill her, or even the Princess of Wales (whose affair with a commoner has made her the target of an assassination plot hatched by evil dudes in the palace inner circle), Chance has some serious skills, from speaking fluent Japanese and citing obscure legal precedents to passing as a professional boxer and flying a 747--upside down. The stories are preposterous and the presentation lighthearted and amusing (watching the Princess, disguised as a hooker, throwing back shots in a bar and using her fencing skills to fight off the bad guys is a hoot), but what really distinguishes Human Target are the action and fight set pieces in every episode. These are pulled off mostly with stunts instead of computer tricks, and the results are as good as or better than anything on television and almost in the same league as, say, those in a Bourne film--no small feat when you take into account the lower budgets and tight shooting schedules common to TV productions. --Sam Graham

4.0 out of 5 stars Human Target: The Complete First Season June 11, 2010
Fox took a chance on a live action series based on a comic book. It worked beautifully.

The twelve episodes are well crafted and brilliantly acted. The plots are outrageous, but it is different from anything on currently.

Christopher Chance is played by Mark Valley (Boston Legal). Winston, the head of this secret operative group, is brought to life, sizzling life, by Chi McBride (Boston Public). The odd man out, Guerrero, is given such a mysterious allure by Jackie Earle Haley (various film and television roles).

These three form a triad which keeps you guessing week from week about their motivations, their past and their apparent commitment to each other. Guerrero seems to be full of surprises.

Beautiful and talented Emmaunelle Vaugier, the fearless FBI Special Agent Emma Barnes, is a perfect match for Mark Valley's Christopher Chance. Let's hope we see more of her in the second season.

From the pilot with a super train to the season finale of twists and turns and flashbacks, you have an excellent series which does not take itself seriously. A number of comparisons have been made to Jack Bauer, but Christopher Chance is not a serious commentary on contemporary society. It is just fun with great stories, plenty of action, daring skills, and a full slate of guest stars.

Fox has it on Friday nights this Fall. As everyone knows, Friday nights are a terrible time slot. Let's hope Fox gives it a full 22 episode run.

5.0 out of 5 stars a TV show that converted a comic book well !! April 22, 2010
Chi McBride is great as usal, Jackie Earle Haley EXCELLENT a couple of the middle epsidoes are not as strong as the opening but the season finale, knocks it out of the park and has a great list of "guest stars" inclinding Amy Acker, Armand Asanti, Lennie James and Lee Majors !! I hope Fox gives this one another sseason

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like James Bond, you should like Human Target April 14, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Human Target is a fantastic show-- part James Bond part 60's style adventure. With tongue most often in cheek, this series goes around the globe with Christoper Chance doing his James Bond style protection of the innocent and the endangered. Shot in HD, the show is visually stunning- can't wait for the Blu-Ray discs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Move over Jack Bauer May 16, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This was the best show of 2010 so far. The acting is always great, the main characters are interesting and they have a great chemistry, and the action is always exciting. The show get's a little formulaic but it's a great formula that is delivered with witty dialog and fun action.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best new shows on TV July 11, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This new series was excellent. The only negative was the fact that it was a short season. The first couple of episodes were a little on the cheasy side - with too far fetched story lines and I fear many viewers didn't stick with the series through the end of the first season. It seemed that with each each episode the series got better and better. The season finale ended with a cliff hanger and I can't wait to see Season Two.

This series is best summed up as a modern day Macgyver. Pre-order the series so you can be ready and caught up by the time that Season Two starts.

Thank you Fox for bringing something fresh and new to TV that isn't just another (Law & Order / CSI type) crime drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mark Valley is great April 21, 2010
I have wondered how long it would take for Mark Valley to show up in a new series. The show is great with some humor thrown in, and lots of close calls for our hero

5.0 out of 5 stars A Target for a great ACTION show July 13, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Damn FOX Television! They put a great show on (like Target). A series which is filled with action and adventure mixed with intelligent dialog. After two seasons, FOX canceled this and Lie to Me: Season One because the rating of these shows were beating beaten by normal network shows. I still wish FOX would have had a brain and a heart with the public, instead of s dollar sign in their hearts.

This show combines action and adventure as I said before. It is different from the DC comic book series of the same name, in that one- Christopher Chance assumes the identity of the person or someone close to the person (sort of like Rollin hand from Mission: Impossible - Complete Series. This version, Chance is a protector of clients. More like a security expert with a sense of adventure thrown in.

The amazing support cast including Chi McBride and Jackie Earle Haley is pared well with Mark Valley's Chance. It works because dynamic tension of the cast is built into the storyline.

The intelligent dialog is compare to a dozen action films with great story lines that make you keep watching.The mystery of who is trying to kill the client has a lot of twists and turns that you never quite expect from a TV show

So get the first season..and cant wait until they release season two on DVD

Season finale cliffhanger ?
It does have a cliffhanger ending, but season 2 is starting up October 1st. As far as I know there is no word about it being canceled, and it looks like this season will have 13 episodes instead of 12.
