08:16 pm - New season of TV
Spoilers for all aired episodes of currents seasons behind the cuts


Agents of SHIELD

That was rather meh for me. I liked the new Inhuman character Joey Gutierrez, I liked Bobbi and Hunter, and Mac, and I liked Skye (I know she’s Daisy now, but I’m with Coulson on this: “Hard for us to get used to, huh?” :)). I missed May very much. I missed Ward a little bit (what can I say - I love villains and he’s a good one).


Gotham

Those two episodes were much, much better than the whole season 1. Jim Gordon is boring so less focus on him and more on the villains is a great idea IMO. And Barbara definitely works better as a villain than a bland love interest.


The Muppets

That was disappointing and not The Muppets I remember from my childhood. One reason for that is not the fault of the show. I got used to watching Muppets with Polish dubbing and hearing English speaking voices was jarring. The other reason – it felt as if the show was made specifically for the adults and only for the adults and it didn’t work for me at all. I wasn’t planning to watch more after the pilot, but apparently the 2nd episode is much better, so I think I’ll check it out.


Empire

Wow, that show is a crazy soap opera and I love it. Jamal was my favorite in season 1 and he’s still my favorite. Even though he’s turning into Lucious. And Lucious of course easily takes “worst father of the year” award.

I loved Jamal’s second boyfriend Ryan in season 1, because he was played by Eka Darville (Diego from the 1st season of The Originals), but I liked Michael, too, so I’m glad he’s back. And that kiss in season premiere, with Jamal being all aggressive and controlling, was super hot. :)


Quantico

I don’t know why I expected a somewhat realistic TV show about agents training in Quantico (based on nothing at all, I haven’t read any spoilers :)), and it certainly isn’t it. But it’s entertaining with a lot of pretty people, and the lead played by Priyanka Chopra is the prettiest of them all. So for now I’ll be watching.

How did you feel about the second episode of AoS? I liked Daisy being the centre of the show and the ending with the monolith had me on the edge of my seat!

Still bitter about Tripp dying, and that we didn't get Fitz/Mack and Simmons/Bobbi. I don't have anything against Bobbi/Hunter, they're just not interesting to me.

I did get a very 30 Rock/Office/Community/Parks and Rec vibe from The Muppets, and really enjoyed episodes two and three. However, it is different from the original, so I can understand if it's hard to enjoy.

I'd actually like to watch the original series, just to see how they compare. It's been so long!

Heh, we have completely the opposite opinion on Gotham :) I want to like it because season one was great, but... To be honest, I really wanted Barbara to be friends with Selina and Ivy and kind of adopt them. They seemed to have good chemistry and those girls needed a home. It was a shame the writers didn't know what the hell to do with Barbara because there were plenty of options, and the actress has shown she can hold her own.

I liked the 2nd episode od AOS so much better. Daisy is my favorite now, so I definitely liked her being the centre of the show. And May was back being awesome as always, and Ward was back being great as a villain.

Still bitter about Tripp dying, and that we didn't get Fitz/Mack and Simmons/Bobbi. I don't have anything against Bobbi/Hunter, they're just not interesting to me.

I would love for Fitz/Mack to be canon. I still headcanon Mack as gay or at least bisexual. Nothing in the show contradicts that. I like Bobbi/Hunter, but I wouldn't mind Bobbi/Jemma, I wouldn't mind that at all. I'm not very fond of Fitz/Simmons, I loved them as close friends and was very disappointed when romantic feelings came into picture.

I would love to watch the originals series of Muppets now and see how it compares to my childhood memories. And I watched the next 3 episodes and liked them much better, so I will be watching the rest.

As for Gotham - heh, yes, we are complete opposites. I definitely prefer season 2. But I agree with you about writers not knowing what to do with Barbara in the 1st season and about her scenes with Selina and Ivy - those were great.
