Human Target


Every TV season there are a select group of people that really stand out above the rest. People that really push their shows to a place that no one expects. People that take the medium of television and spin it on its head. And that’s why sometimes they need the love that the Emmys just refuse to give. And with that, I bring you The Top 10 TV Big Shots of 2010-2011. Let’s celebrate these creative minds and their teams in no particular order.

After weeks of negotiations between FOX and Universal over the production costs of hit medical drama House M.D., the show has finally been renewed for an eighth season on the network. The issue of the negotiations stemmed from the fact that FOX wanted to drastically cut the cost of producing the show since the recent drop in ratings from last season. Series stars Hugh Laurie, Omar Epps, Olivia Wilde, and Robert Sean Leonard are all signed on to return, but co-stars Lisa Edelstein, Jesse Spencer, and Peter Jacobson are all still in the middle of negotiations. However, their returns are almost a guarantee. In addition to the renewal of House, the network also picked up three pilots to series including the comedy I Hate My Teenage Daughter starring Jaime Pressly, another comedy in the form of The New Girl starring Zooey Deschanel, Bones (which also saw a renewal a week ago) spin-off Finder which had a back door pilot on the hit crime-drama a couple weeks ago, and the new J.J. Abrams series Alcatraz.


With premiere week over I’ve compiled a list of the week’s top premieres from each night. The winner of each night is based upon the quality of the writing, the shows entertainment value and if it’s a new series, the shows sustainability. This year had some extremely heavy hitters and some of the best performances we have seen on the small screen. So without further ado, here are the winners of the FSR Fall 2010 Watch List (please note that this list only applies to shows that started before or during the week of September 19th). Sunday: Boardwalk Empire In what should come as no surprise, Boardwalk Empire was top dog on Sunday. I’m not big into period pieces which is why I really never got into Mad Men, but Scorsese has made me fall in love with the 20’s and Atlantic City. Steve Buscemi is a great lead and a guy I can’t wait to watch every week. If only Scorsese could direct every episode and not just the pilot.


Busted Television

We’ve done it! We’ve reached the final night of the week. Friday, the night often known as the night where shows go to die, has seen a resurgence in good programming in the last decade. Shows like Law & Order: SVU, Flashpoint and Ghost Whisperer all either started or still currently air on Friday nights. I can’t help but attribute that rise in programming to the invention of DVRs. Now you don’t have to be home to enjoy the programming of the empty night. So send the kids out on their sleep over, break out that 15 year old bottle of scotch and refresh those DVR batteries because here comes part VI of the FSR Fall 2010 Watch List.



We’ve retired another Wednesday which can only mean one thing: time for some mindless action on Human Target. Fox’s new series charts the business model of Christopher Chance’s private protection company.



Though it’s had some missteps and still struggles to find its stride, I truly enjoy this show and hope it continues to improve upon itself. Last week’s episode was a definite step in the right direction and I am anxious to see if episode five, “Run,” continues that trend.



Fox’s new action series Human Target started with a bang and spent last week fizzling to a near certain doom. I am a big proponent of this show, and even I could not abide the tepid, mundane third installment. This week’s episode, “Sanctuary” is a return to form and restores my faith in this series.



So I completely missed the second episode and assumed the third was the second. So before I review the “second” episode of Human Target, let me briefly summarize the actual second episode; appropriately titled “Rewind.”



I’m back to pepper another television series with my perspective; such as it is. Given that covering V has been no walk in the proverbial park, you may wonder why I agreed to undertake another show.
