Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Absolutely love this show! Sure, the beginning was a bit slow and rocky, but after seeing The Winter Soldier in the theatres it made sense - they couldn't really build up to it during the season or it'd ruin the movie. I've been really enjoying ever since and I can't wait to see what Age of Ultron does to the show afterward, or how the show plays into Age of Ultron (Fury isn't the director anymore, Phil is so it'll be interesting to see how that plays out).
While still fairly new, I've been enjoying it so far. Like how they're filling in some of the backstory on the first Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D, and can't wait to see where they take it - and what interesting tidbits and teasers they're going to put in for the Team Coulson.
Could they have made a better show, I really doubt it! I have nothing to say for this one other than if you haven't seen it you need to rectify it ASAP.
I had no idea this was a comic book thing, I just figured it was a TV adaptation of the horrible Keanu Reeves movie. I'll consider checking it out later.
Never watched it, will not watch it. Not because I don't want to, the reviews look good and people are saying great things about it, but because its on Fox. After being burned by them so many times I'm afraid of watching the show and liking it, only to turn around and watch it get cancelled on some cliffhanger (I'm looking at you Firefly, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Brisco County Jr., Tru Calling, etc..)
When asked what superpower you'd take most people say flight, I'm afraid of heights so I always go with speed. The Flash has long been one of my favourite superheroes (DC really needs to make a Flash movie instead of dicking around with Superman / Batman all the time) and also enjoyed the '90s flash with John Wesley Shipp, so I was really excited about the new Flash. So far I've been liking it, its had some rocky episodes - but I'm liking the slow progression of Barry's character and the little team he's building up around him.
I'm not sure it'll last long though, those special effects can't be cheap - one of the major downfalls of the original '90s flash (okay, okay, there was bad writing there too - though the episodes got much better toward the end) - and I'm thinking the ratings will be need to be higher than average to justify the cost.
The Walking Dead
Watches the first season, enjoyed it. But the second season really got slow, and boring. Every episodes seemed to devolve into the same overall plot:
* Go somewhere for something needed on the farm.
* Generally act like dicks to each other.
* Stop a whole fucktonne of "Walkers".
* Resolve to be better people.
* Do it again in the next episode.
A zombie show just doesn't work if you stay in one place too long - unless they're Resident Evil types, which run fast and chase you down - they're really easy to avoid. Once you've hunkered down, unless you're an idiot and draw attention to yourself you just won't have to deal with them much.
I've heard the Prison season was pretty good, so I might go back and finish The Farm - but honestly, I was liking "Z Nation" way more than "Walking Dead".
