Tribute to Axed Series

I tripped across this awesome article today which gives information I didn't know about the mall shooting location (The Other Side of the Mall, S2E6) and some other fun details. The full article has photos and information about "V" as well.  Click on the article link at the bottom of this post to see more photos from the set.

#YVRShoots – Tribute to Axed Series As New TV Season Begins

POSTED July 7, 2011 BY Susan Gittins

....Next on the list of shows I wish had got another season is Human Target, also cancelled in June after two seasons on FOX. While I didn’t get to see as much of Human Target filming as V, what I did see was fun to watch because of the stunts. All three male leads — Mark Valley, Chi McBride and Jackie Earle Haley — did some of their own stunts at their big Christmas episode shoot inside the International Village (Tinseltown). I watched and photographed Valley practicing roundhouse kicks to limber up and saw Jackie Earle Haley do his own stunt-fighting. And Chi McBride, while not as athletic as his co-stars, proved no slouch either, bashing a villain extra with a Christmas bell while dressed in a boiling-hot Santa suit (a young woman kept his face cool with a portable fan between takes). Human Target saved the best for last though, filming its series finale on the roof of the Hotel Vancouver in a raging snowstorm. I asked the stunt coordinator David Chue how they achieved some of the visuals and yes, some of it was greenscreened in studio but a lot was filmed on the roof, too.
 FOX cancelled Human Target with a slew of other dramas in an overnight bloodbath to make way for new series....
