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.

Plot:

A year ago, a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas left the city decimated. Blamed for the tragic event, those with extraordinary abilities are in hiding or on the run from those with nefarious motives.

Review:

I think I would have preferred an outright reboot to a mini-series that picks up two seasons after I dropped the original show. Since I did stop watching around the beginning of the third season I’m not sure if things would have been clearer if I was up to date. I honestly planned on watching the first four seasons before this aired, but never got around to it.

With all the other superhero shows that I’m already watching Heroes Reborn was going to have to be pretty awesome for me to pick it up. Sadly it was more of the whole save the girl, save the world business. Maybe I didn’t like it because I wasn’t up to date, but I don’t think so.

The two hour season premiere asked a ton of questions, I think they were expecting me to already be invested in the world and want the answers, sadly I do not. There was also the horrible “video game” story line that was going on that turned me off as well. That part was set in Tokyo, why the hell didn’t they make it look like anime?

Whatever, if there’d been some new characters I was interested in I might have stuck around, but nobody really grabbed me. For a moment I thought maybe I’d watch it for Zachary Levi but I hated the character of his wife, she was just so guns blazing stupid. I will say I read a theory online that those two aren’t really married and based on the premiere I think that’s probably true.

I’m actually sad that I’m dropping this show, but I see no reason to stick around. This Fall season has been really rough, even my returning shows aren’t blowing me away. Maybe I’ve finally met my TV limit.

2/5
