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.

Review:

I’ve only seen a couple episodes of the original series and honestly don’t remember much about them, so my thoughts on the episode are based purely on the pilot and how it compares to the most recent movies.

There’s a lot more adult material and themes in the TV series. Not to the point where you wouldn’t want kids to watch, but they aren’t going to catch on to everything. Fozzy is dating a human which causes problems between him and her family. Kermit and Miss Piggy have broken up and he’s dating a new pig. I never understood why Kermit was with Miss Piggy but whatever floats his boat. He’s apparently into pigs since his new woman is one too. I’m not sure how I feel about the new girl. We’ll see.

The show wasn’t awesome and it wasn’t bad. I’m really noticing a theme with these new shows. Nothing has really blown me away or made me excited to see more. It’s kind of sad.

3/5
