a short review
April 22, 2015
Here’s what I posted on Facebook about it:
This season on Agents of SHIELD:
“We have to do X, we have no other choice.”
“That’s a really bad idea.”
“Yes, but right now X is our only option for advancing the plot.”
*pulls ripcord, bails on show*
I’m tired of letting loyalty to a brand force me into watching a crappy show. There are moments of brilliance — Kyle Maclachlan’s Cal is so deliciously crazy. The slow burn revelation of superpowered people is really interesting. But the moment in last night’s episode when Bobbie and Mac are sparring and they stop and basically say, “Maybe we were wrong about Coulson,” I just about screamed and hit the TV, because this means they’re basically going to undo the last six weeks of plot and the show has just been spinning its wheels in the stupidest way possible.
If this is the same thing that happened last season — the show’s hands being tied because they can’t step on the toes of the big movie release — then Marvel really needs to work on their structure because this is dumb and is making for some bad TV.
Or they could just, you know, give us more “Agent Carter.” *hint hint*
