Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Fantastic or Fail?

Coulson is alive!
 
A very confusing, yet exciting prospect, due to his death in the film series. But in this world superheroes exist so anything is possible, right? The show follows a small team of agents that Coulson has formed after he has been brought back to life. Some of my friends have been a little confused by this show, which is fair because the purpose of the task force can be a little unclear at times, but I just tell them it is the “Men in Black” of superheroes. The superheroes are hiding and S.H.I.E.L.D is out to control them.
 
In terms of what I think of the show, I don’t like it, but I kind of do, its all very confusing. I find Skye and the two techno nerds extremely annoying and the purpose of the whole thing is way to vague. Sometimes it seems like they are rounding up superheroes, other times they are a task force doing random fighting stuff (honestly, I want to see more superheroes).  Also, I have a huge conspiracy theory that Coulson is still dead, or dreaming, or brainwashed, BECAUSE:
 
1.He now has everything he ever wanted, which never happens in TV until the final episode.
2.He seems to have been programmed with a call and response. Every time someone mentions Tahiti, where he supposedly went to recover, he says the same phrase, “It’s a magical place.”
3. The show is totally setting up S.H.I.E.L.D. to be the “bad guy”. Even Coulson is starting to question them a little!
 
SO, something fishy is going on and I don’t trust the whole thing and that is probably what has turned me against the whole thing.
 
Ok, geeky rant now over.
 
I officially have to redact anything I said previously, because my sister loves this show and will bar me from saying anything bad about it. And I know I can be wrong, so I need to know, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Fantastic or Fail?
 
More on new Fall shows to come, and keep an eye out for my fantastically fan girlish Dr. Who 50th Anniversery Special post.
 
Peace!

Netflix Has Ruined My Life!

murder she wroteI was going to write another list of great movies to watch on Halloween. However, I cannot.

Netflix has removed “Murder, She Wrote” from Netflix!! How am I supposed to keep up with Jessica Fletcher now?!

“Murder, She Wrote” is a typical nosy old woman sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong. But, she solves mysteries all at the same time. The character Angela Lansbury plays is simply endearing. I grew up watching the show, so a certain amount of nostalgia is attached to the show for me. However, I feel like it is still a gem. Despite low production value, the stories are fun and family friendly.

Many people have a certain perspective of this show, but the truth is that it can really surprise you. For instance, there was a whole episode involving Jessica’s cross dressing nephew. Which is a subject I never thought this show would ever talk about.

I am officially going to go out and buy every single season. I don’t need to eat this week, right?

Sleepy Hollow – Things Just Got Weird

index I really have been rooting for this show, but the episode “The Lesser Key of Solomon” totally turned me off from the entire series.

Originally, the show was about Ichabod Crane who came from the Revolutionary War era and woke up in modern times. There he met a police officer named Abbie Mills. They are working together to solve a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding days of America. It had all the right amounts of spooky and history mixed together, and I told all the nay sayers they were wrong, I tried to convince them this show was worth watching.

But now, I think they were right. In this episode things got really weird and I was just plain uncomfortable the whole time I was watching. Suddenly the focus has become very occult and just strange. I mean the guy having his head bent backwards in the first or second episode was weird, but it was s fleeting moment. I just couldn’t handle the gates of hell opening and the religious references. I mean don’t get me wrong, I liked Da Vinchi Code and I LOVE Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but there was just something too weird about what was going on in this episode.

I think I am going to give up on this series and find something else.

I Am Back!

Wow! it has been a long time!

Life got really hectic, and time to write on my blog became very scarce.

At this point I am kind of feeling like:

Seriously.

Seriously.

I opened a new store on Etsy which you can see here Penny’s Pages, and I have managed to make it to my last semester of school (insert happy dance here)! The point is, I have still been watching TV like a maniac and now I am back and I have plenty to tell you!

It’s Almost time for Dr.Who’s 50th and I have been fan girling so much!

Stay tuned, I will be posting whenever I find entertainment worth talking about!

Make sure to catch up on some of my past posts, here, here and my favorite, here.

Peace!

Hemlock Grove on Netflix

hemlock-grove-poster1Hemlock grove is one of the new series being made by Netflix as they venture into original programming. But I give it a huge thumbs down. about 20 minutes in I had to give up.

It moved extremely slow because it was so full of dialogue. I know that sometimes pilots are just that way, but this was way worse than usual. I just couldn’t make it.

The show has something to do with werewolves and gypsies, but honestly I kept catching myself doing other things instead of watching the TV, so I could be wrong.

What I do know is that a girl was brutally murdered, probably by a werewolf. And the creepy new guy in town probably did it.

If it gets better after the first episode, somebody let me know, and I will give it another try.

You should also be aware that things can get pretty gory.
