Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is Renewed for Season 7

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return Summer 2019 ABC President Channing Dungey announced today. This is before season 6 has aired which will happen in early 2019 for a shortened 13 episode run. It’s unknown what the length of the seventh season will be. With the launch of Disney+, Disney’s digital service, it was expected the ratings challenged show would switch to that platform from Disney owned ABC.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.stars Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley and Jeff Ward.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was co-created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen, who also serve as executive producers along with Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb.

Underrated: Comic Book TV Shows That Don’t Suck (Anymore)

This is a column that focuses on something or some things from the comic book sphere of influence that may not get the credit and recognition it deserves. Whether that’s a list of comic book movies, ongoing comics, or a set of stories featuring a certain character. The columns may take the form of a bullet pointed list, or a slightly longer thinkpiece – there’s really no formula for this other than whether the things being covered are Underrated in some way. This week: Comic Book TV Shows That Don’t Suck (Anymore)



Do you remember when [insert comic book TV show here] debuted, and how excited you were to start watching it? Do you then remember the moment when your excitement waned and you realized that somewhere alone the line that [insert comic book TV show here] either never was all that good, or  had begun the descent into suckage?

Well, here’s a few shows where that descent was reversed, for better or for worse. The only caveat is that is all personal opinion, and some shows still suck. Obviously this is not going to be an fully comprehensive list, because I haven’t watch every comic book show available, but merely a selection of those I have.

And if your favourite show isn’t here? Maybe it never sucked enough…

Arrow_season_5_title_card.png

Arrow Now somewhere in its eighth season, Arrow started out with significant promise before slowly trending downwards. Hitting a low point around the third season, Arrow struggled throughout the following year and a half before finally pulling itself away from the poor man’s imitation of Batman we’d  been seeing as the show moved away from the League of Assassin’s and toward a direction you’d never expect to see Batman or Bruce Wayne take as Oliver Queen ran for Mayor of Star City. Now, although the show still has its problems, Arrow is on a decidedly upward trend and no longer deserves the poor reputation it so justly earned a few years ago.

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ironically, few people enjoyed this show right from the get go – my wife effectively gave up on this right around the tie in for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which was around when the series started to pic up in its quality. Since then, barring a few hiccups (most notably Season 4), the show has been remarkably solid with the fifth season standing out as the best one that has been produced in the last five years.

The-Gotham-TV-show-7.jpg

Gotham Unlike the other two shows mentioned in this week’s column, Gotham is a show I actually dropped half way through the first season. It turns out that for a long time that was the right decision. But recently those who have bravely stuck with the show for various reasons have been rumbling that, maybe, it’s something that should make its way back into my television viewing schedule. While I haven’t  made the plunge on it yet, primarily due to time constraints, I have every intention of reading the highlights online before starting with the most recent season. I’ll let you know how that ends up.


 

That’s pretty much it for this week, so join us next week when we look at something else that is, for whatever reason, Underrated.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is Renewed for a Sixth Season

After speculation, ABC has announced that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is getting a sixth season. The season will be truncated to 13 episodes instead of the normal 22.

While the ratings for the current season haven’t been stellar, the series does well on DVR playback/on demand and solid in the international market.

The season finale for the current season is this Friday at 9pm ET on ABC.

Coulson’s life or death is the challenge the team finds themselves in, as the wrong decision will cause the destruction of Earth!

TV Review: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S5E1 Orientation Part One & Part Two

Coulson and the team find themselves stranded on a mysterious ship in outer space.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. kicks off its fifth season with a game changing opening in a two episode debut. As the fourth season wrapped up we saw that the Agents were no longer on Earth and were aboard a ship of some sort. Where are they? How did this happen? Some of those answers are found in the two episodes in what might be the strongest debut of any season.

Lets start with the story.

The team is disconnected, separated, and have no idea where they are. They need to figure out what’s happened and the episode is mostly them doing exactly that. It all flows nicely and through it all we’re introduced to the situation, the goal, and who the villains are. But the bigger question is, are they really the villains? This season feels like a tough one when it comes to that with a slightly more ambiguous situation.

But, what’s truly impressive is the twist that’s revealed as to exactly what the situation is. It’s not what I expected at all and there’s so much mystery left to figure out, not to mention how it all ties together with the rest of the live action Marvel universe.

The characters too are great. There’s some amazing lines by Mac and it’s clear that the writers are having fun with the genre and situation they’re all in. There’s some jokes about the situation, about some tropes, it’s just fun.

The story is solid and the production value has increased as well. The special fx look like the budget is higher and there’s a focus on the visuals. The aliens too look solid fitting well into the existing Marvel movie universe. It’s interesting and the only downside is that there’s a lot of darkness so it’s hard at times to tell exactly what’s going on. It’s good and forces you to pay more attention but it’s a downside too.

The two episodes together make for the strongest debut of any season so far. The characterizations are great, action is is solid, and special fx are improved. Hopefully this isn’t a fluke and what we can expect for the season going forward.

Overall Score: 9.45
