'Human Target' 2.08: 'Communication Breakdown' Advance Review - Starpulse


The second half of the arc, "Communication Breakdown," picks up exactly where the first part left off. While Chance and Ilsa are still in South America, Winston, Guerrero and Ames deal with a pest of their own in the form of a hapless PI named Harry (Arrested Development's Tony Hale). The show finally moves the Ilsa Pucci character out of the business element, and shows us just how unfit for Chance's world she really is; she spends the first few moments of this episode in downright hysterics. The two argue for large parts of the episode, but honestly, they really need to, as we're exploring how disparate their philosophies are. They've needed to have it out from the moment they entered into this bizarre partnership, and now they finally do.

With Chance out of the picture, we're treated to more of the great relationship between Winston and Guerrero, and how they are equally as capable of stepping up as he is. Their dialogue is particularly sharp this episode, which isn't surprising given that it's written by original showrunner Jon Steinberg, who knows these characters better than anyone short of Len Wein. Chi McBride and Jackie Earle Haley continue to be both hilarious and effective, often at the same time. McBride, in particular, is at his cranky, blustery best.
