Buzz has been building about a possible Moonlighting movie starring Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis. It seems the two former co-stars ran in to each other at a deli in Encino -- where all important Hollywood decisions are made, obviously -- and got misty talking about the good old days. Timely enough, since the '80s mystery-comedy-romance went off the air exactly twenty years ago this year. High time to capitalize on nostalgia.
There's something about the new Fox series Human Target that makes us feel like kids again. Why does this man-of-action adventure drama, starring Mark Valley as more-than-a-bodyguard Christopher Chance, suddenly take us back to the 1980s? Could it be that the show reminds us of a bunch of adventure series that were on the air back then? The first Human Target TV show failed back in 1992 because it had missed the 1980s action-adventure boat, but maybe now nostalgia-seeking TV viewers will give it a "chance" (sorry). We compared the new Human Target to some of our favorite '80s action shows and found that they had a lot in common -- although Target still has some tricks it can learn from them.
