New Shows for Fall 2013: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D



The internet is already buzzing with new shows that will be premiered with the upcoming fall season.  Being the TV junky that I am, I love to read these updates and start planning my TV schedule based one what I see is coming out.  Over the summer I want to feature some upcoming shows, especially those I am anticipating.



First up - one of the ones I am most excited about.  Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (which is a P.I.T.A to type out, really puts a halt in my W.P.M.), created by Maurissa Tancharoen (Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog), Jed Whedon (Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog), and Joss Whedon (Avengers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Serenity and more), will be aired by ABC on Tuesday Nights at 8pm, 7 Central Time.

Normally I wouldn't be super excited about TV trying to make a series from some of my favorite comic books, but this is one I am very excited about.  Some of the original people will be coming from the movie franchise into the series - but not so much so that it won't work for the transfer to television.  What I am looking for is the tongue in cheek humor that the movies and comics are known for, along with some great action sequences.  The stories?  Well, yeah those need to be decent to keep me hooked; but I always appreciate the TV series that gets a little more into the lives of the ensemble than just the procedural shows showing how they got from point A to point B.

There is a part of me that thinks this will be a '1-season' wonder - though I do hope they prove me wrong.

  1. I love new fall shows. Unfortunately we still have to be careful on what we watch and wait til the kids go to bed for any sci-fi or law and order shows. I can't wait for parenthood to come back. I totally fell in love with that show!

    1. I know what you mean!! Luckily my daughter is getting older and some things lead to great conversations; but there are still a few shows I have to record and wait until after hours to watch.

      Parenthood is one of my faves! I bawl every time I watch it, but I absolutely love it!

  6. you just made my night! My husband is going to be happy. He was so disappointed when they canceled Alphas, so maybe this can fill the gap.
    So glad you're back! :)
