  • Ilsa Pucci can't even hit on a guy worth anything...

    ...and as a result, well, she deserves to have to date him! LOL!

    I'm glad we had an Ames-break tonight; it was good to get back to some semblance of the core of Human Target. I do enjoy the Baptiste character though I was (pleasantly) surprised by a few things:

    1) That Chance might actually think he will have that watch for any extended period of time!

    2) That Chance offered Baptiste a job. Was that potentially real, or just to distract him into drinking the contaminated bourbon? And,

    3) That Baptiste so easily fell for a trick he would undoubtedly use himself! It was funny to see him realize the scam as he faded into oblivion...

    Actually, Baptiste on the team would be a lot more interesting than Ames and/or Pucci. Somehow he, with his similar background to the others and personal connection to Chance, seems a better fit. More in keeping with the theme of the show: that is, over-the-top, male-dominated, "you've gotta be kidding" action and humour. It used to be a show that was fun BECAUSE it didn't take itself seriously, and we as the viewers, were all in on the joke. With the addition of the female characters, well, somehow the show is becoming the joke. Somehow, women on this show are just...superfluous. Not only are they not necessary, they are in fact detracting from its key appeal.

    Surprised to hear myself say that about my own gender, but there you have it. Just some addled female thoughts...
