Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 Episode 1 – ABC Tuesday @ 8 EST

I was prepared to write a blog post about how I was unimpressed with Fall TV so far. Everything I’ve watched has been pretty meh, which I’m really sad about, however this episode of S.H.I.E.L.D. brought my hype back up for this show.

I’ve kept S.H.I.E.L.D. on the roster because I really love the Marvel universe, but I’ve never been a huge fan of the show. It’s had moments I’ve really liked, but not much that I really loved and I can’t think of anything that’s blown me away. This episode made me excited for the season to come, though.

Maybe it’s all the other underwhelming TV I’ve watched or maybe it’s because this episode seemed more than just filler for upcoming movies, whatever the case I hope it continues and I’m really looking forward to next week’s episode.

Shows I’ve Already Dropped:

Moonbeam City – Comedy Central – It’s a futuristic 80s Archer. None of that’s bad, however I felt like it was too much Archer and if I wanted that I’d watch it. I didn’t even finish the first episode.

The Muppets – ABC – First episode was eh, second episode didn’t even make me smile, don’t feel like watching anymore.

Heroes Reborn – NBC- See previous post

Shows that are on the edge:

Gotham – Fox- Never been a huge fan of prequels but for some reason I watched the last season and it was alright. I’m not as lenient this season, though, so they’ll need to find a way to keep me.

Minority Report- Fox- This is petty of me and I genuinely feel bad for people that are working on this show, but I’m glad the ratings aren’t good. I really miss my Almost Human.

Network:

Fox

Starring:

Ben McKenzie

Donal Logue

Jada Pinkett Smith

Plot:

The origin story behind Commissioner James Gordon’s rise to prominence in Gotham City in the years before Batman’s arrival.

Review:

I watched this show because I love superhero shows, but I’m not a fan of prequels. I already know that Gordon isn’t going to succeed. He can’t, or Batman will never exist. It’s kind of depressing knowing that going in.

The show was fine, I liked the Gotham vibe it had. I did think they went overboard introducing so many future super villains. Every couple of minutes you were being introduced to someone’s alter ego and sometimes there was a super cheesy pun to go with it. They made sure to say riddle when Enigma was introduced. There were cats for Catwoman and of course Copperpot was called penguin. A bit too much for one episode.

Overall it was an alright pilot and I’ll probably watch a couple more episodes.

3/5

2014 Fall TV Schedule

2014 Fall TV Schedule

I just got finished going through the Entertainment Weekly Fall TV Double issue and I’m kind of embarrassed at how excited I was. It took a couple of hours but I’ve got my excel spreadsheet prepared and all my start dates listed, now I just have to sit back and watch as my DVR fills up.

There are twenty-four shows on my watch list this year, eleven are new. I ended up dropping a couple that I watched last year and a few got canceled, which explains why almost half of the shows I’m watching this season are new.

There are a couple that I’m incredibly excited about, some I’m unsure of, and at least one I’m not sure if I want to be watching anymore. I dropped New Girl because I didn’t like almost any of the episodes last season but for some reason I’m still watching Bones. Not sure what’s going on there and I might end up dropping it.

Can’t wait for my CW shows to start, especially The¬†Flash, but I’m not sure if I’m going to like the Fox TV show Gotham. Not overly fond of prequels, I know what’s going to happen, and since they have to fail for Batman to be created I’m just not looking forward to it. I’m interested to see how they do Constantine but it’s another show I’m unsure of.

Several romantic comedies on my list this year, which is weird. I’m going to be honest and say the only reason I’m watching A to Z on NBC is because I loved the mother from How I Met Your Mother. Marry Me is getting watched because I loved Happy Endings, and Star Wars Rebels because I want to see how they’re going to ruin my childhood.

Lots to watch this year and I’m going to try and post a review of each new pilot, though to be fair it’s never good to rate a show based on its pilot.

Now I’m going to watch Haven, which was new last night, and kick off the Fall TV season.
