Sneak Peek: The Human Target opening credits

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 15th 2010 1:00PM
There's been a lot of talk coming out of the Television Critics Association press tour about the opening credits for FOX's new version of The Human Target, which premieres this Sunday. Here's a look. I like the graphics, but the music isn't as moody or energetic as it should be. It's more "majestic," which seems wrong for this kind of show.

But hey, it's an actual opening credits sequence and a theme song, which is more than most shows have today, so let's not argue. (Here's the opening of the 1992 Rick Springfield version of the show.)

FOX announces midseason schedule

CowellIt's strange that not only is it almost 2010 but it's the end of the decade.

The end of a year also means that it's time for the midseason shows to make their appearance. We already know that Chuck and Lost are coming back (January and February, respectively) and now FOX has announced their midseason schedule. After the jump, full details on when we'll see the return of Jack Bauer, Simon Cowell, Gordon Ramsay, reality shows, new shows, and special episodes of your favorites.

New pilots from Fox

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 20th 2009 10:02AM
FoxFox has inked a deal for a bunch of new pilots for next season. They include such titles as The Station, Walorsky, Two Dollar Beer, Sons of Tucson and Human Target.

Among them, Human Target is of the most interest to me. It's an adaptation from a DC Comics character. He's a bodyguard named Christopher Chance that assumes the identity of the person he is supposed to protect. Properly done, this could become a companion show or successor to 24 (particularly since Prison Break is ending).

This isn't even the first television adaption for The Human Target, as Rick Springfield starred in a brief series about the same character in 1990. However, things were different then. The environment is better for such a program now, assuming they take it seriously and don't make it too cartoon-like (although I could argue that 24 is cartoon-like in its presentation).

So which of the new Fox pilots do you find interesting?
