The lone hero with a mysterious past , taking out bad guys has been done many times before, very similar to Human Targets first season.
First off yes its old school, help the helpless tv show, but really is that a bad thing. I grew up on these shows, equaliser, knight rider, the A team, early edition etc etc. Yes you have to remember not to over analyze those shows. They are a dying breed but they still have a huge fan base all over the world
So forget all the tv snobs who like gritty "real life" dramas, ill go for this kind of show every time, Its entertainment, its fun and thats what i watch tv for.
