I love Modern Family but can't help but notice the amount of recycled and tweaked Frasier storylines it comes up with.

First episode of Agent Carter was good fun, seems to have hit the ground running a lot more than Agents of SHIELD (which I did catch up on and ended up enjoying a lot once past the first dozen episodes or so!).

I'm half a decade behind the rest of the world but I'm really enjoying Chuck at the moment.

After that, I've got a choice of Arrow, Gotham, The Flash, Constantine to watch, as well as The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul, Game of Thrones all to start up in the next few months I'm not sure how far I'll get through them.

Anyone suggest a good order to watch the in (apart from the obvious Arrow before Flash)?

Second episode of Agent Carter... this show is a winner. Highly recommended for fans of the Marvel Studio movies, Hayley Atwell is a sparkling lead and has great chemistry with an enormously entertaining Jarvis (the proper one, not just his voice !). This is really good fun, I'm really looking forward to Daredevil if they keep up this quality.

See, as things stand I have no intention of watching it. Almost ANYTHING that's a prequel to something else is a bad idea for me, there's only so much scope to do anything. Particularly something that ties so closely into the films and Agents of Shield. I just don't understand the point of the series, particularly as Agent Carter didn't really strike me as all that important or amazing a character in Captain America anyway. I think I might just give that a miss.

Well, it's your loss! It's significantly better than AoS so far. I'm not a fan of prequels but I see this as more a sequel to Captain America than a prequel to what else is going on in the Marvel Universe.

So Richard Armitage is going to be Dolarhyde in Hannibal for season 3:

Really looking forward to the next series, although massively disappointed that Michael Pitt isn't going to be Mason Verger this time around as I thought he was fantastic.

I should have clarified...I was talking about at this stage in AoS life. Let's be honest, that show was borderline terrible for it's first three months and didn't really pick up until about the 15th/16th episodes. Admittedly since then it's been very good to excellent but these first 2 episodes of Agent Carter are absolutely streets ahead of the majority of AoS's first season. The 2 main leads have more charisma than the entire cast of Shield put together had in that time!

Clarke in The 100 is potentially the most insufferably irritating lead character Ive seen in a show in ages!

American Horror Story tried its best this week, but basically just killed more people simply because it could. If everyone was to die next week, I honestly wouldn't give a shit.


Parks and Recreation is back! With two episodes in one night. :D
Chris Pratt still has a decent sized role (for now anyway) but the star of the show, for the first time ever, was Jamm. Ron had a couple of quality moments of course, but Jamm just made that second part his own.
Tom's just starting to piss me off now though. Get him a girlfriend and fuck him off. Even Larry/Jerry/Terry is more interesting.

Black Sails - didn't know what to expect and thought it would be a load of shit like Vikings but this surprisingly really good. I highly recommend if someone is looking for a good pirate story. Wondering how they will build up to Treasure Island.
