Excellent choice on casting for Baptiste.  Thought the guy was great and look forward to most likely seeing him again.  This show is quickly becoming one of my favorites on TV right now.  And it's all in the acting and dialogue for me.  Just love the witty banter back and forth

I think Human Target has firmly become this generation's MacGyver.  I'm a fan.

great episode....  i happen to own the original human target on dvd...   not even close to macgyver ,  macgyver never used weapons....   anyway  i would like to see other shows comeback that are similar to target... like t.h.e. cat, equalizer, and stingray....  so if any other networks read this these shows are  profitable....  we need more shows like this on tv now...

I'm really digging this show. Valley is dead on as Chance. McBride & Haley are perfect foils for both Chance & each other.  The plots aren't always the most original, but always entertaining. Excellent action, too!

Yeah, dude...this episode is not called "Run." That was the name of an earlier episode where Chance is protecting a woman who is prosecuting the mob and all of the dirty cops are trying to kill her. This episode is called "Baptiste." I normally hate pointing stuff like this out, but I figure you guys might want to keep some kind of journalistic integrity. Mistakes and typos are not a great way of doing that.

This episode was pretty awesome. This show set out with a simple premise of entertaining it's audience and that is what is does. I respect it for that. I already put enough thought into Lost. I don't need every show to be deep and confusing. And I love me some Emmanuelle Vaugier, she is f**king gorgeous. Bringing another cutie onto the show wasn't a bad idea either. Mark Valley did say there would be action and women when he was promoting the show. So far, we've gotten both.

 Good, solid episode.  It's nice to see some backstory on Chance and Guerrero, and while the inclusion of Layla seemed out of the blue (did I miss some mention of recruiting her in the previous episode she was in?), she makes a nice addition (assuming she is an addition and not a one-off).

There is one thing that kind of bothered me, though:  from the exposition, Baptiste is some sort of ghost who's so good that you can't even definitively say the target was deliberately killed, but in this episode he left a number of bodies that couldn't be anything but murder victims (the maintenance guy with multiple gunshot wounds alone would be a tip off).  In other words, for a guy with supposedly such a light touch, he was awfully heavy handed here.
