Tyler @ Pulptone - The Yips & the HUMAN TARGET Non-Linear Trap

by Tyler Weaver.  Follow him on Twitter.

THE GAH! The consistently annoying use of bad non-linear storytelling, for no reason other than to open with a fight scene.  The non-linear approach didn’t reveal anything!  It was done well in episode two, but that’s it!  STOP!

After last week’s episode, I was worried. It dropped the ball. Big time. What should have been a nail-biting hour of television wasn’t (in spite of what MTV hailed as the reviewer’s “favorite episode of the series” ) Maybe I was spoiled by the perfect mixture of fun, bad assery, and overarching plot that had come between the previous worst episode of the show (the Embassy episode) and the new worst episode of the show (Baptiste).
Chance is called in to protect a pro USC fighter, and in a return to the Human Target concept, Chance poses as an unknown fighter to get into the biggest match in the world, so a shady Brit criminal guy named something or other won’t kill Fighter guy. Along the way, he runs into Grace Park (Sexy Fighter Handicapper Lady), and Winston envelopes him in a massive bear hug – without any hugging. Guerrero, meanwhile, is working his macabre magic behind the scenes, all the while playing off the foil of his new buddy, the fighter Chance is protecting.
