Human Target Season Premiere Review: "Ilsa Pucci"

by at . Comments

The second season of Human Target begins right where last season left off.  Winston is being held hostage by Chance’s former boss, who is after one thingL his infamous book.  Chance is somehow able to save his friend and immediately decides to take a much needed hiatus.

Season 2 Premiere Scene

But before we get to this week’s plot, I must ask one very important question:

What happened to the storyline that ended season one?  Where is Chance’s old boss?  What great secrets were in the book that he was after?  I was a bit disappointed that the previous story was completely dropped without any proper conclusion.  Do you think Chance's old boss will ever seek retribution for losing his hand

In the beginning of "Ilsa Pucci," Chance decides to leave Winston and his job to do a little soul searching.  He's tired of constantly putting his dear friend’s life on the line.  He just needs a break!

Where does the man of the hour end up?  Meditating in an Ashram for months.  Thankfully, Ilsa Pucci shows up to break Chance’s trance and things go back as they should be.

Pucci then hires Chance to figure out who killed her husband and also to protect her.  At first things don’t go exactly as Chance would like, but by the end Chance is able to save the day. 

Chance even acquires a new benefactor, the gorgeous Mrs. Pucci herself.  She wants to give Chance the ability to help people all over the world.  With her power and wealth, we see great things ahead for Chance and his team.  This new endless supply of money and power should definitely make for an entertaining second season.

And now that Mrs. Pucci is a widow, we predict things heating up quickly between her and Chance.  Is she the partner and lover Chance has been waiting for since Katherine’s death? 

One thing is for certain, if you are looking for a wild, entertaining hour of television you have come to the right place.  Human Target might not have the greatest storylines, but it definitely has the action and adventure you crave. 

Chance isn’t afraid to jump out of a twelve-story building into a canal of water or lay his life on the line for someone he hardly knows.  He is simply a hero, willing to do whatever it takes to save the day. 

Until next week, here are a few of our favorite Human Target quotes to keep you smiling:

Chance: Winston, I'm sorry for getting you into this mess. I'm sorry for whatever torture you had to endure because of me. Most of all, I'm sorry about Aunt Suzy.
Winston: Aunt Suzy? No man, not Aunt Suzy (then he shoots Winston). | permalink
Ilsa: You know, I thought you'd be different.
Chance: Taller?
Ilsa: No.
Chance: Younger?
Ilsa: No, braver. | permalink
Chance: Nice dress, it's going to make targeting you a breeze.
Ilsa: Just trying to make your job easier. | permalink
Ilsa: There are a lot of smarter ways to earn a dollar.
Chance: I'm not very bright.
Ilsa: You are brave. You must have a lot to be redeemed for.
Chance: I do. | permalink
Chance: No more hiding, I'm not going anywhere. | permalink

Need to get your details right. The man trying to steal the book was NOT Chance's former boss, 'The Old Man' (played by Armand Assanti). The man who was shot in the hand was a former client who'd hired The Old Man to find the book & kill Katherine Walters. Chance or 'Junior' as he was then known, was assigned by the Old Man to carry out the hit & bring back the book (which the Old Man also claimed ownership to). But Junior was a killer with a conscience and only killed those 'in the game'. Katherine Walters was an innocent witness which forced Junior to look at himself and listen to his conscience. Instead of assassinating her, he tried to protect her and walked away from his former life and his former boss. The original Christopher Chance tried to help him save her, but also died in the process, not before setting Junior on the path to becoming the new Christopher Chance. The name is a legacy handed down to a special type of bodyguard or 'Death Retardant Specialist' as Chance called it. Totally agree on the throwing away of the great storylines, especially as Armand Assanti was playing Chance's former boss, the 'Old Man'!

I am glad they brought this show back. Out of the ordinary story lines and good acting. Well done action sequences also.

I like this show when it was on before, but the MUSIC on most t.v. shows is so loud, you miss half of the dialogue. If it's like that next week, I won't be watching it again. Thank you to the CW for keeping the great music down. You can hear it but you can also hear the actors. One of the few shows that do it right!!!
