I was psyched to learn that Fox started making this show, Human Target, which is based on a comic book. Sign me up.
So I started watching it. The show has its moments: stuff gets blown up, people fall off of buildings, Chi McBride is sarcastic, what's-his-face shoots stuff. All the kind of stuff that makes me happy.
And then I read the DC comic based on the show. (...based on a comic...it's an infinite regress, I know.) Whatever, it's fun. Stuff blows up, people get saved, bad guys get shot. In the head.
Wait a minute. Something just clicked.
People get shot? Oh, yeah. That does happen on the show now that I think about it.
But what did whats-his-face say in the Pilot episode?
"Nobody deserves to die." Except for bad guys, that is.
It logically follows that bad guys aren't nobody. Hooray for them! Syllogisms for the win!
