This week, I had a lot of feelings about the busy week in news. Let’s get to it.
Agent Carter came roaring back into our living rooms and onto our computer screens this week. Following last week’s jam-packed episode of character exploration, Peggy’s work finally catches up to her. Read More New Show Recap: Agent Carter 1×06, “A Sin To Err”
I cannot believe we are already halfway through the first season of Agent Carter. I really like the miniseries or British TV series feel of only doing eight-episode seasons. It keeps the characters fresh without bogging them down in repetitive monster-of-the-week episodes. A lot of major television shows could benefit from doing 13-episode seasons instead of the standard American full season of 22. Read More New Show Recap: Agent Carter, 01×04, “The Blitzkrieg Button”
It’s official! After nearly two decades since the first all-Asian American sitcom aired, All-American Girl, starring comedian Margaret Cho, ABC has picked up Fresh Off the Boat as part of their 2014-2015 primetime lineup. This is exciting news for many different reasons because: 1) I’m a huge fan of the show’s creator, Eddie Huang; 2) again, it’s an all-Asian American sitcom to get onto primetime television since the ’80s; and 3) this could potentially be a big deal for more representation of the Asian American experience on television.

After last week’s pilot episode, I kind of knew what to expect from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I knew it was going to be a superhero procedural with a Whedon twist. I knew that Marvel and Disney were giving them movie budgets for the whole season. It has delivered on that promise so far, albeit a bit less Whedon-y in the second episode than I would have liked. I got close to muttering Vamp Willow’s favorite phrase, “Bored Now,” during parts of the episode. Read More New Show Recap: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D 1×02 “0-8-4”
When Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was first announced as an idea, this fan girl squeeed. A new Joss Whedon show combined with the Marvel Universe? That sounded like the best damn match made in heaven. After all, The Avengers was an awesome movie. A lot of people were wondering if this show was ever going to work. How can you have a TV show set in the Marvel cinematic universe work without using Captain America or Thor every week? Read More New Show Recap: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., 1×01, “Pilot”
I wasn’t expecting Mrs. White in the kitchen with the revolver, but I did think ABC’s new murder mystery show, Whodunnit?, would be a lot more entertaining. Read More “Whodunnit?” is No “Clue”
