Human Target: Previewing Episode 3 "Embassy Row"
Tuesday, January 26, 2010
Last week's Human Target--the one on Wednesday night, I must clarify--deserves to be called out for two things.
One, can you really fly a plane upside down and sustain it? I only know of pilots spinning it around, and that's in an air show. And now we get Chance, who probably isn't a trained pilot (but how would I know), flipping a plane belly up so the fire at the cargo area can be extinguished. And keeping it that way for, I don't know, five minutes or so.
Two, are they really keeping the mobile phones open on the plane, in mid-flight? I wouldn't mind if it's in flight mode, but Winston's calling Guerrero while he's, I don't know, 30,000 feet in the air or something? I know MythBusters busted that already, but it's still not allowed, right? Maybe it's not the gunshots that caused the fire, but the phone use.
Obviously there's only so much suspension of disbelief I can take. But tonight's episode--it should've been tomorrow, but there's President Obama to worry about--should be a little more grounded in reality. No planes, no fires: just Chance and good old fighting. Tonight he crashes a black-tie affair at the Russian Embassy, in an effort to defuse an international arms deal. But he's also in there to avenge a friend's death, which should explain why he isn't doing much when it comes to covers.
Still, he meets his match. Last week it was a bad stewardess. This week? It's Jessica Angell from CSI: NY, only undead and taking on a different name. Emmanuelle Vaiguer guest stars on tonight's Human Target, from 9pm on Fox. Saw the photos? Good.
