New Show Recap: Agent Carter 1×06, “A Sin To Err”

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”

New Show Recap: Agent Carter, 01×04, “The Blitzkrieg Button”

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”

New Sitcom “Fresh Off the Boat” and What it Means for Asian American Representation

It’s official! After nearly two decades since the first all-Asian American sitcom aired, All-American Girlstarring 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.

New Show Recap: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D 1×02 “0-8-4”

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”

New Show Recap: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., 1×01, “Pilot”

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”
