– There have been a few reasons for not being able to post much lately, but I’m holding back on detailing all of them for a few reasons. I am still alive and kicking though, so there is that.
Today, I’ll focus on the massive amounts of TV watching being done at my new house as I’ve torn through season 1 of The Blacklist, season 1 of True Detective, and wactching the new season of The Flash, Arrow, and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Spoiler free)
The Blacklist took a bit of time to get going, but Spader becomes pretty damn evil about midway though the season and it’s great stuff when he does. (Season 1 is on Netflix for your binge watching pleasure.)
True Detective was incredible through the first 6 episodes and while the last two became a bit formulaic (in my opinion) and weren’t nearly as good, they were still enough to make for a great season, and the show is well worth tracking down on HBOGO, if you have it (or possibly available via their streaming service in 2015 when that comes online.)
The Flash’s premier episode was pretty damn fun and had a quality setup for the season, but the second episode left a lot to be desired and made Barry come across as a pretty big whiner and wimp. Hoping for better as the season goes on.
Arrow has started off with a bang with a major character lineup change in the first episode, but I can only hope that this season will have as many geeky easter eggs as they had in last season (who didn’t love the Harley Quinn appearance?)
Lastly, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been pretty solid picking up from where they left off (post-Hydra) from last year. I’m still not that bothered by the big-bad that they’ve cooked up for this year, but who knows, maybe he’ll surprise me as the season moves along.
– Your thoughts? Shows that you’re watching or want to recommend?
