  1. Saw Human Target. 1st ep – The one with the Bank and Train
    Not impressed at all.
    Pretty poor special effects made it look cheaply produced.
    The story lines was not so great either.

  2. Yeah I don’t see Human Target coming to Nine any time soon, saw the pilot, it had it’s moments but wasn’t anything special. Probably turn up on GO! in 2 years time…

    As for the other new shows, isn’t there too much TV already! LOL

  3. This will be good news for Nine. They should give the show to GO! and start playing it so that it can lead in to the second season in September.

  4. “No Ordinary Family” has writers an a showrunner that have worked in the early seasons of Brothers and sisters. it think it’s a great concept hop it works.

    David, NBC has also recently picked up ‘perfect couples’ today.

  5. Good news about Lie To Me an excellent series that deserves a few seasons at least.

    Thought Human Target was doing poorly. I’ve heard people say it’s like an 80’s type action series so I’m hoping Nine give it a go soon.

  6. No Ordinary Family sounds awesome. has some great writers and producers behind it too.

    after looking at the ratings i didn’t see a renewal of human target coming. but people i know that have seen it say it is good so i’d watch it if it came to GO! or something.

  7. Julie Benz didnt waste any time…From Dexter to a new ABC series via a few guest spots on Despos. Must be nice to be in demand. 🙂 Will be interesting to see how the story arc on teh new series of Dexter develops. (cant wait for that one…)
