On TARGET

While I generally find it difficult to keep up with most series television as it airs, one show I've consistently been enjoying since its premiere a few weeks back is Fox's Human Target. Based on the DC Comics character, Target stars Boston Legal and Fringe actor Mark Valley as bodyguard-for-hire Christopher Chance.

One of the most unique aspects of the show is its evocative, retro-cool title sequence, with music by Battlestar Galactica composer Bear McCreary, that sets the perfect tone of high-style, high-adventure they're (ouch) aiming forCheck out the credits below, and catch Human Target on Fox Tuesday nights.



And just in case you're feeling déjà vu, no, this isn't Chance's first go-round with the telly. He was played by former heartthrob Rick Springfield in a blink/gone Human Target series (produced by Danny Bilson and Paul DeMeo, of the blink/gone Flash TV series) that aired on ABC in the summer of '92. Check out the opening here, and prepare to be shocked that it didn't last.
