Newsroom finale is easily the weakest episode of the season, possibly of the series. They set up some good drama in the first half last week that they didn't deliver on. I felt absolutely no stakes for an entire hour, and called more than a couple of "twists".

That said.

I've never been so pleased with an episode of TV I was disappointed in. I mean. EEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

I need a Netflix/24 intervention.

Agreed, Coulson is a wonderful character, but I wish that some of the supporting actors had more character. There are far too many pretty youngsters...would like to see some older actors with craggy faces that show some life experience.

i'm hoping they pull in maria more, she and coulson together makes for great screen time. i saw a bus ad in one scene for stark industries, maybe some guest starring by thor, tony, bruce, clint..? they referenced natasha. i'd like them to give deadpool a nice little story but i'm not gonna hold my breath on that one (boo).

The Broadchurch finale is tonight. I'm among the dorky few awaiting the reveal of Danny's killer.

So I am eagerly awaiting Revolution, The Blacklist, Scandal, Nashville (soapy and I love it!), and the Amazing Race! I keep hearing wonderful things about Downton Abbey and 24, so I really need to do something about that.

So was S.H.I.E.L.D good for non-comic book fans? How did Sleepy Hollow turn out?

TV time again!

I marked Monday on my calendar for the Castle premiere. Love, love, love it! And, only slightly weird watching it since I met Nathan last month lol!

Tonight is all about Criminal Minds! Sorry to not see Strauss this year as she had grown on me, but we still have Hotch and Reid. (If ABC is reading this, please bring back Prentiss.)

Also, waiting for Amazing Race, Grimm, Supernatural, Haven, and the Big Bang. I'm behind in Supernatural and Haven though so we will see - are they on Netflix?

SHEILD was great! I'm not a diehard comic book fan, but still easy to follow and I caught some references just from watching the recent movies. Agree with someone else who said it was a young cast...good to see Coulson and liked the wittiness they kept in the show.

What and when is Rein?

I thought Blacklist was terrific. I don't know if they can keep that pace up, but it was non stop action for an hour. The characters and the pace remind me a lot of 24.

S.H.I.E.L.D. ... Not sure what I think just yet. I have high expectations and Joss Whedon is brilliant so I'm hoping it does well. Personally, I would like to see more heroes in it but the first episode was well done. Certainly they are pumping money into it and if the writing is there then it can be a success. I liked it but didn't love it.

Sleepy Hollow: I like it a lot. Reminds me of Supernatural in it's beginning. Hopefully it won't be too similar because IMO that would be overkill. But it has promise.

Today I'm so looking forward to Criminal Minds and CSI.

Last night Chicago Fire ROCKED!!! Literal hot guys on TV. Can't ask for more....
