The Superhero Show Show #463

A Deep Dive on 1992’s Human Target

The Taste Buds watch the pilot episode of 1992’s Human Target, starring Rick Springfield!

On an all-new, all-different episode of The Superhero Show Show, the Taste Buds find themselves  with an empty television schedule! They have no choice but to turn their attention to the past, and watch 1992’s Human Target! Based on a DC character from the 70’s, Human Target tells the story of Christopher Chance, a superhero without any powers, especially without the power to love. Instead, Chance is hired by people who need help. Chance uses his masks and kung fu skills to replace his customers and solve mysteries.

With no history or knowledge of Human Torch comics or tv shows, the Taste Buds watch the first episode and discuss it. They go through the 90’s-ness of it all, the performance of Rick Springfield, and the complications that arise when you insert yourself into someone else’s life.

Join the gang next week, when they watch the first episode of 2010’s Human Target, with Chi McBride!

Chance receives a desperate appeal for help from a construction company owner who fears that a loan shark is trying to kill him.

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit
