It’s a good time to be a fan of tv. Provided that you’re a fan of watching fat people buy abandoned lockers and you happen to be keeping an eye out for the production staff throwing “valuable treasures” into the storage area when nobody is looking. What I’m saying is, is that I hate that glut of horribly-staged and fake shows.
What I do enjoy however, are the various comic books shows on TV. There’s a ton of them to watch, and some of them haven’t even been cancelled! Marvel is experiencing success with not one but two such projects: Agent Carter and Agents of SHIELD. And they’re both getting an extra season or two. Seasons which have gotten the synopsis treatment. Here’s what awaits your favourite heroes next:
Agent Carter – Season 2
“Marvel’s Agent Carter” returns for a second season of adventure and intrigue, starring Hayley Atwell in the titular role of the unstoppable secret agent for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve). Dedicated to the fight against new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home — and perhaps even a new love — she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.
“Marvel’s Agent Carter” stars Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter.
Agents of SHIELD – Season 3
Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) embarks on a deadly new secret mission to protect the world from new threats in the wake of SHIELD’s wars with Hydra and a rogue faction of Inhumans.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Director Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Agent Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Nick Blood as Agent Lance Hunter and Adrianne Palicki as Agent Bobbi Morse.
To be honest, I haven’t seen Agents of SHIELD yet, but plans are being made to marathon it. Agent Carter however, I quite dug. The limited series format suited me just fine, as the show never felt like it was dragging, and Hayley Atwell was a delight as Peggy Carter. And that’s the show that I’m looking forward to.
