January 23rd's Weekly TV Thoughts

Two new shows this week and one ending.  I don't have time to keep up with everything, and it's not even a sweeps month.  I don't know what I'm going to do next month.

Galavant – I was laughing so hard at the Forest of Coincidence that I had to pause the show.  Yes, it was completely and totally stupid, and just a way to advance the plot, but they did it in such a funny way.  Plenty of other laughs as always, and how they are advancing the story is great.  I’m wondering how they will resolve anything at this point.  And you might have heard me gasp during that final scene.

Supergirl – So I thought Kara’s aunt was going to be the big bad of the season, but now my money is on Maxwell Lord.  But maybe it will be both somehow?  Either way, his backup videos and his spy camera are definitely not good news at all.  Our heroes are in some serious trouble, and it has nothing to do with a stolen kiss.

Team Ninja Warrior – This is definitely an interesting twist on America Ninja Warrior, and I like it.  I’m not sure I completely get the point of the rounds, but it is fun watching people actually go head to head and seeing how that changes the challenge.  Nail biting TV, even more than normal.

Agent Carter – I was looking forward to this show coming back, as long as they weren’t going to have Agent Carter having to hide her investigation from the rest of her “team.”  I’m thrilled to see they aren’t making that mistake.  I like how this is tying in to SHIELD with that weird substance being part of the plot.  I’m very intrigued about how it will all tie together, in fact.  We are off to a wonderful start.

The Flash – Did Patty really just leave?  I actually thought she’d stay around longer, although I knew she wasn’t going to be a long term team member.  And Barry never got to tell her his secret, either.  Got to say, I loved the Turtle as a villain since his power was so anti-Flash.

Arrow – I figured they wouldn’t kill Felicity now or in a few months, so no big surprises there.  But where was that ring in the future?  (Yes, I did pick up on that all by myself.)  I’m dreading find out who is in that grave.

Heroes Reborn – Seriously, you come back to do a limited run series, and you still leave us with a cliffhanger?  And that kind of bittersweet ending?  Honestly, I wasn’t that impressed with how it went out or the season as a whole.  Glad it’s over with.

Legends of Tomorrow – I’ve been looking forward to this show since it was announced, and I know that Arrow and Flash have both been leading up to this show all season.  I’m jazzed.  This looks like as much fun as I was expecting it to be.  I wish someone from Flash had been able to guest star in this episode, but that’s a very minor complaint.  Great fun overall.

Girl Meets World – Again with the lectures!  While I certainly have no issues with the premise of this episode, it’s supposed to be a comedy, and the laughs were in very short supply tonight.  They’d better start making me laugh again soon, or I’ll reconsider watching the show.

  1. Enjoyed the new episodes of Agent Carter as well. I like when they layer in these other mythologies.

    1. It's a nice touch, although I don't particularly like that touch of the mythology in SHIELD.

  2. I love all the Ninja Warrior shows! Started watching the original in Japan a number of years ago.

    1. I've never seen the Japanese version, but I've heard it's better. The athletes on the show are amazing, aren't they?

  3. If you have Amazon Prime, you should check out Just Add Magic. Watched the entire run of Season 1. Really good little show and I have a feeling you might like it -- as long as you have Amazon Prime. If you don't, I doubt there is a way to watch.
