Tyler @ Pulptone - HUMAN TARGET: That's GuerreRorschach To You, Dude

by Tyler Weaver.  Follow me on Twitter.




I take a ridiculous amount of joy in turning my brain off for an hour each week. That HUMAN TARGET airs bang on in the middle of the week is such fortuitous timing.  It falls smack dab in the middle of my two other shows (HOUSE and FRINGE) that require a bit more brain power to review (though not a lot, admittedly).
I love the tried and true A-B-C good guy vs. bad guy story. It’s the hallmark of great comic books, of heroes, of the fun 80’s action shows (MACGUYVER, A-TEAM, etc.).  I admire shows and works that don’t pretend to be anything they’re not, and HUMAN TARGET wears its pedigree proudly. It’s pure escapist fun without an iota of irony. And that’s refreshing in this overtly cynical age – sometimes we just want to see bad guys get their asses kicked and a hero who has a good time doing it.
