It’s almost here! Last year, I picked up Lethal Weapon, MacGyver, Speechless, Riverdale and This Is Us. And The Great Indoors, but it got canceled, and only a little justifiably so. So what will 2017 season add to my ever-growing list of things to try?
So, I’ve had a time of it. It’s been just over two months since my last post, and in that time I’ve lost a job, got a new job, packed up my apartment, made what felt like a half-dozen trips between Oklahoma and Kansas, exhausted the data on my phone twice and stared in utter bewilderment at the piles and piles and stuff I now have to find a new place for.
And somewhere in there I dug my heels in with my internet provider until we reached an agreement on acceptable pricing.
The point is: I haven’t been watching a whole lot or really doing much an anything that warranted posting over unpacking, sleeping or snuggling my cat. But I’ve had internet again just long enough for some random observations about a few shows.
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.
