I really enjoy Agents of SHIELD. It’s a show that’s been able to reinvent itself with every season — sometimes every half-season — while still feeling like part of an overall whole. But I’m really not loving this Framework story line. It definitely has its moments, some of which were on display this week, but in the grand scheme, I just don’t see it working for me.
I got caught up on Gotham last month, but kept sitting on this post because other things seemed more timely. But Gotham’s hiatus ends tomorrow, so no more dilly-dallying.
Legends of Tomorrow was definitely one of my favorite shows this season, and I started thinking of things to say about it a couple episodes before its recent finale. And man, am I glad I waited.
I finished up season one of This Is Us last week. I suppose its fitting that a series known for having some kind of a twist in every episode would end its generally strong season and a string of phenomenal episodes with its worst stuff. That was certainly an unexpected twist.
I caught the first two episodes of Time After Time today, and it’s better than I thought it would be after half-hearing it in the background at work on Sunday, but I’m not entirely on board with it.
With tonight’s premiere of the latest entries in this year’s slew of time travel shows (Time After Time, where HG Wells chases Jack the Ripper, and Making History, a comedy about some friends who use a time machine made out of a dufflebag to galavant across the centuries), and the realization that this year marks 10 years since its premiere, I decided it would be a good night to point out that I HAVE JOURNEYMAN ON DVD!
Last week I wrote about all the shows I’m still watching (or, rather, trying desperately to catch up on) from the 2016-17 season. It’s almost hard to imagine, but it could have been much longer if not for this selection of shows that I’m either no longer watching or lost interest in before they even started.
