ALL THE PILOTS: Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. A Joss Whedon Production Brought To You By ABC

25 Sep

SHIELD is kind of a weird case in that it was never going to matter if it wasn’t very good.

SHOCK OF THE CENTURY: Dads is terrible, and it only looks worse next to Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

It’s not just me, right? Outside of Fox and the CW it looks like we’re dealing exclusively with garbage? SO MUCH GARBAGE. ALL THE GARBAGE 2013.

Speaking of garbage, I started this season with Back in the Game!
