More new shows and quality shows returning to TV. Agents of SHIELD is clearly the one everyone has been waiting for and will be watching. I'm hoping it can set things up like the first slate of Marvel movies set up the Avengers movie. I'm curious to see if they go with established second tier heroes or if they invent their own, and if any of the major Marvel heroes like Thor or Captain America show up. I assume the show will exist in a vacuum to begin with until it can stand on its own.
What To Watch
FOX 8pm: Already two episodes into the season, with the first one coming with controversy for asian stereotypes, and most of the buzz is about how this beats the low expectations set for it. The concept and execution seem lackadaisical and nothing about this show seems to stand out among all the good things on TV.
|2. Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.|
ABC 8pm: The wait is over and your next dose of Marvel is here. Agent Coulson is back and is forming a team to help deal with problems around the world. Early word is mixed on this show but this is one of a few shows I intend to find out for myself. Expect a write up at least on the pilot of this new series.
|3. Brooklyn Nine-Nine|
FOX 8:30pm: I missed the premiere last week but this show looks like it has potential. Just a little of Andy Samberg can go a long way but given the right scenario he could really stand out in this show. The commercials almost had me convinced this would be something on Adult Swim, not Fox. Maybe this one has a chance.
|4. Sons of Anarchy|
FX 10pm: A brewing civil war continues on Sons of Anarchy. The promos for this season featuring a vignette of all the characters in one massive fight looks pretty awesome. I'm not one for biker movies or shows but it's good to see this one still thriving.
|5. Catfish: The TV Show|
MTV 10pm: One of my guilty pleasures that I'm not afraid to share and tell others about. Catfish is somehow still entertaining and engaging probably because looking for love on the internet will yield the strangest people sometimes. If you haven't given this show a chance yet you should tonight.
