Comic-Con: Human Target and V Pilots Reviewed


Even though Comic-Con doesn’t really start until Thursday, the Slashfilm gang arrived on Wednesday to take in the preview night. Adam and I took the opportunity to check out the pilot premieres for the new V series, as well as Human Target. They also premiered the pilot for Vampire Diaries, but we took the hint from the majority of the audience and bolted before that started.

Human Target stars Mark Valley (Fringe), as an all-around badass who uses his many skills, including a heightened sense of observation and a mastery of subterfuge, to protect his clients. The series also stars Chi McBride, playing a character not unlike his Pushing Daisies detective role, and Jackie Earle Haley as a badass of a geekier persuasion.

V is a remake of the classic 80’s miniseries, which was about an alien invasion that eventually grows to enslave mankind in a totalitarian government. The new series shares much with its predecessor, but it’s unclear right now how far they’re going to go with the original story. The series stars Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost), Morena Baccarin (Firefly), and Joel Gretsch (The 4400).
