(S01E12) "Christopher Chance is the guy you go to when no one else can help you." - Christopher Chance to, er, Christopher Chance!

Last night's great season finale was capped off by a cliffhanger ending straight outta 'The Empire Strikes Back' -- a major player went missing, the plot was left unresolved, and a swelling John Williams-esque score filled the final moments. The cliffhanger felt even more poignant since Fox has yet to announce a second season renewal for 'Human Target.'

Hopefully, the network will take a, er, chance and order another full season of the show. 'Human Target' turned out to be one of the best and most enjoyable new series to premiere in the last few months. I've had a blast tagging along with Chance, Winston and Guerrero on their crazy adventures, and I'd love to see the boys regroup and save the day over and over again for another few years.

Christopher Chance on 'Human Target'What's in a name? On the drama 'Human Target' (Wed., 8PM ET on Fox), Mark Valley plays Christopher Chance, a bodyguard who goes undercover each week to protect his clients. But on the latest episode, we learn that "Christopher Chance" is a name with a long tradition. Valley meets special guest Lee Majors -- that's right, The Six Million Dollar Man himself! And then we learn more about Chance's background.

'Human Target' Season Finale: Taking a (Christopher) Chance

by Jo Garfein, posted Apr 14th 2010 2:00PM
If you haven't been tuning in to 'Human Target,' it's not too late to start this week. The season finale ('Christopher Chance'), which airs tonight at 8PM ET on Fox, presents the perfect opportunity for new and existing fans alike to get a glimpse into the back stories of the series' three lead characters.

'Human Target' -- about mysterious and clever private security contractor Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) who has his own set of rules to protect clients from dangerous and imminent threats -- is original, refreshing, fun and action-packed. Jackie Earle Haley, who plays Chance's well-connected, tech savvy and trustworthy friend Guerrero, accurately describes 'Human Target' as a show where fans "grab a beer, sit on the couch, throw their feet up and take a ride."

'Human Target' - 'Victoria' Recap

(S01E11) "You a hot mess." - Winston to Guerrero.


Chance rubbed elbows with royalty on last night's 'Human Target.' But while Fox's pre-show introduction (starring a couple of 'Glee' kids) promised big thrills and explosions, "Victoria" failed to deliver any truly spectacular action sequences. At least we got to see the show sorta return to its original premise, with Chance posing as someone close to the client to protect her from the threat. It seems like he hasn't done that in quite a while.

Winston and Guerrero got themselves into a pretty tight spot during this ep. It's always fun to see these two paired up out in the field instead of stuck in a room staring at computer screens or talking on cell phones. Follow me after the jump to discuss last night's Crown conspiracy.

Protecting the Princess on 'Human Target'Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) is the star of 'Human Target' (Wed., 8PM ET on Fox). He's a private special agent who goes undercover every week to protect the lives of his clients. On the latest episode of the show, Chance finds himself in a very British situation: he's protecting Princess Victoria (Christina Cole), a member of the English royal family. To make things even more British, the two of them find themselves in a shoot-out in a room filled with swords, shields, and ancient suits of armor.

human target tanarak recap
(S01E10) Sorry about the late review, folks. My systems were still acting a little wonky after that EMP blast on '24' the other week, but everything seems to be working A-OK now (yes, I am a robot, a TV lovin' robot). So let's take a few and talk about our favorite Death Retardant Specialist, Christopher Chance.

SuperChance flew to a remote Alaskan island to rescue a selfless doctor, played by the perfectly adequate Moon Bloodgood, from a team of corporate-financed baddies. But what started out as a simple find and flee job soon turned into a mission to unearth a deadly conspiracy. Follow me after the jump for spoilers.

'Human Target' - 'Corner Man' Recap

human target corner man recap(S01E09) 'Human Target' jumped back to case-of-the-week mode after last week's back story-heavy hour, but I'm not complaining. Like 'Fringe,' this is one of those shows that constantly delivers solid stand-alone episodes.

This week, Chance entered an underground martial arts tournament to get a fighter off the hook with a dangerous gangster. I was hoping this ep would exploit the 'Enter the Dragon' fighting competition gimmick a little more. I was expecting brutal hand-to-hand combat scenes, tense build-ups to each fight, and opponents that got bigger and scarier as the episode went along.

Instead, the fights kinda seemed to happen in the background. Chance fought a few guys who pretty much looked the same and seemed to go down a little too easily. The real intrigue sprang from all the high-stakes gambling and backdoor deals surrounding the fights.

Christopher Chance Escapes from a Watery Grave on 'Human Target' (VIDEO)

Human Target, Mark ValleyJames Bond's got nothin' on Christopher Chance on 'Human Target' (8PM ET on Fox). Dumped into a swimming pool? No problem. Shoot somebody from under the water? Piece of cake. All with grace and charm.

In fact, the next time they're looking for a new 007, we nominate Mark Valley. But only if they shoot between seasons. We need our 'Target' fix.

Nice to see TV veteran Peter Wingfield as the bad guy, too.

Mark Valley Teaches Jimmy Fallon How to Take a Punch Like a Hero (VIDEO)

Late Night With Jimmy FallonMark Valley, star of Fox's 'Human Target,' stopped by 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' (weeknights, 12:37AM EST on NBC) to give the host a few tips on how to be a hero.

The duo threw some fake punches with surprisingly comical results. Apparently, when you take a sucker punch to the jaw the right way, you get music.

While Fallon may have mastered the heroic punch, let's leave the trash talking action roles to Valley. We all remember 'Taxi,' Fallon's cop comedy with Queen Latifah.

'Human Target' - 'Baptiste' Recap

(S01E08) I take back what I wrote last week. Kim Coates' Bertram is no longer the best and most memorable villain on 'Human Target'. That title now belongs to Baptiste, played by the awesome Lennie James.

The guy was brilliant as Chance's sadistic and stealthy nemesis. I would've been happy to watch Baptiste sit and trade barbs with Chance on that bench for the entire hour. But this episode had a lot more to offer, including some juicy intel about Chance's past, and the welcome return of Emma Barnes (Emmanuelle Vaugier) and computer geek Layla (Autumn Reeser).

Spoilers after the jump.

Christopher Chance and Baptiste Face Off on 'Human Target' (VIDEO)

Human Target, Baptiste and Chance FightThe downside of training someone with your awesome assassin skills is that you never know when you might have to face off against them. Christopher Chance learned that the hard way when he and Baptiste had it out on 'Human Target' (Wed., 8PM ET on Fox).

But they must be evenly matched because both were standing after the fight, and Baptiste even managed to blow up a building in the process. Everyone made it out, though. Bollocks!

'Human Target' - 'Salvage & Reclamation' Recap

human target salvange & reclamation review
(S01E07) 'Human Target' returned to the tube with a fun episode packed with big explosions, clever gags, an exotic locale, and some femme fatale hotness. The hotness came courtesy of guest star Leonor Varela, the latest in a string of babes we've seen pair up with Chance during the show's freshman season (according to star Mark Valley, she definitely won't be the last).

Varela did a fine job playing Maria, one of Chance's old flames – an old flame who could've turned out to be "the one" for Chance, if only he would've stuck around to find out. But, as our boy explained midway through this ep, he left her because everyone he's ever gotten close to "has been taken away."

Was Chance making a reference to Katherine Walters here, the woman we found out about a few episodes ago? The woman he was in love with? The woman whose death he might be responsible for?

Human Target, Mark ValleySay you have to get on a plane, but the plane can't land because the Army has seized the airfield (don't ask questions; just go with us here).

Sure, it's an impossible task, unless you're Christopher Chance on 'Human Target' (Wed., 8PM ET on Fox).

The solution involves a very long rope, a sturdy net, and a pretty girl to kiss for encouragement. See? That wasn't so hard, was it?

'Human Target' - 'Lockdown' Recap

(S01E06) It's always a pleasure to watch nerd for hire Kevin Weisman stammer his way through a guest spot on a great show. I loved him as Marshall on 'Alias', enjoyed his stints on 'Moonlight' and 'Roswell', and who could forget his brief appearance as 'Hobbit Lover' in Kevin Smith's 'Clerks II'?

Weisman literally played a nerd for hire in this episode. His character, Martin Gleason, was a brilliant weapons engineer in need of a little rescuing. The twist, of course, was that his own company was holding him prisoner. I guess that's what happens when you're in possession of damning intel that can bring a powerful weapons developer down for good.

'Lockdown' was another fast and fun hour of 'Human Target', a show that literally orders viewers to turn off their brain, sit back and enjoy the implausible ride.
