It was one of the best shows of last year, overshadowed perhaps by Marvel’s other shows… Man they had a good TV year… but season 2 is here! Agent Carter. I actually blogged reviews of every episode last year, which was easy enough as there were only 8. I don’t think I’m going to do the same thing this year – but I thought I would write up some initial thoughts.
Last week the new ABC show Agent Carter premiered, the latest in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It stars Hayley Atwell, who has been slowly increasing in how often she has been showing up in the movies and shows. She plays Agent Peggy Carter, first seen in Captain America: The First Avenger, a character who has been increased from her comic origins to be a total World War 2 era badass.
So last year Holly and I each wrote a post about what we were excited about for 2014. Well, the lists were pretty similar, and we also feel like there were more things that we knew were coming in 2014. As in, we can’t name all that many things coming this year.
There are a bunch of movie announcements for the next several years, like from Marvel, but 2015 is a bit quieter on that front. And without the new consoles there aren’t a lot of games coming for us to be excited about. There are a couple of spring season shows coming, but they both start in the next few days and don’t feel like a big this-year sort of thing.
Anyway, it seems like our big news yesterday will be the biggest thing we’re excited for this year, but I’ve included a poll with the few things on our radar. If there’s more you’re excited for this year, let us know in the comments below!
Last week we got the premiere of Agents of SHIELD and got a glimpse at the direction the show is going in this next season. There was some trepidation considering how slowly the first season took to ramp up, but it seems that they have gotten over their initial slow pace and have found their story. There were quite a few elements that the premiere introduced us to. We got to see what happened with the various team members since we last saw them and what they will be working on. We also got an interesting glimpse at the villain for the season that seems like it might be somewhat tied to the Agent Carter show. There seems to be definite potential for this next season, starting a lot stronger than the first season. (Spoilers for Agents of SHIELD after the jump!)
Yay!!! It is almost here. The Fall 2014 TV season is about to begin and there are some potential greats in the mix. Now of course we have the return of some of our favorites; Arrow, Castle, Doctor Who, Sleepy Hollow, and more. Then the return of some we hope can hold their momentum and not fizzle out again – I am talking to you Agents of SHIELD. The other part that is exciting is being able to see what new shows the networks have decided to throw at us. Now I know there is no way for all of these shows to survive (Almost Human), but it is still fun to see, hopefully, fresh ideas make it to the small screen.
I think overall we have gained more shows than we lost so we will see how they can hold up against the new show runners. Last year we dropped Bones and NCIS because they just could not hold our attention in comparison. We lost HIMYM and Believe, but overall I think that is going to be overpowered. As I did last year I will be doing a verdict post for each of the new shows that David and I are interested in. What I want to know is what show are you most looking forward to with the new slate of shows? Vote in the poll and leave a comment!
As you can see Agent Carter is not listed as that is going to be a mid-season premier in January so technically is not a new FALL show.
