Are you in extreme danger? Need special security? Is there a bullet out there with your name on it? Leave it to Chance. Mark Valley is protector-for-hire Christopher Chance in the thrill-packed 12-Episode Season 1 based on the DC Comics series and graphic novel.
From piloting a distressed, upside-down jumbo jet to bodyguarding a D.A. targeted by a gang, Chance puts his life on the line - and each new adventure reveals a little about the mysterious past that drew him to this line of work. Chi McBride as ops manager Winston and Jackie Earle Haley as techno genius/fixer Guerrero are Chance's ace support crew in a series bursting with brilliantly off-kilter characters and high production values.

UK denied top tv series, yet again!
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 07/11/2011 12:16:42
Echoing the previous comment here, I wasn't familiar with the comic-books myself, but the series is fantastic - a prime example of a superior ensemble series. And it is just that, Mark Valley's portrayal of Christopher Chance has just the right balance of drama, humour and charm to work and the friction between Winston and Guerrero carries the story nicely along without holding things up, the latter character holding a lot of appeal to me (love how he casually refers to everyone as 'dude'); he could have a series all to himself.
Sadly though, it's yet another case of a belting American TV series that seems to have passed the UK by when it comes to an official dvd/Blu-Ray release. Like Max Headroom before it, they certainly have fan-base in the UK and it is a quality series, with some finely crafted stories, modest production values, sterling cast and pacey direction. It's series like this that makes it worth running up your electricity bill and to hell with keeping warm.
With the drek you frequently see being released onto these shores from our colonial cousins - and even from our domestic vaults, I hasten to add - we could do far worse than seeing an official UK release of this.

I have to say that I had never heard of the comics when this show came out but still I was blown away. This show has everything that you need: gun fights, car chases, hot girls, humor and a amazing story line. It is just a shame that Human Target isnt out on DVD/blu ray in the uk yet.
