Agents of Shield has been loving great since the last half of season 1, this guy should probably go and finish the series.

Watch and see. Or go ahead and gently caress off. Either way I'm good. RT @ArsenalPie: I hope Daredevil is more 'early Spartacus' as opposed to the disgrace we got in the later seasons.

Here's the AV Club reveiw B-, but it seems his problems were mostly matters of taste and nothing dealbreaking.

AVClub hasn't been the best source for reviews in a while, I feel, since Sepinwall left.
The reviewers they have are all pretty biased by way of political views mostly, they basically end up letting one thing in a tv show's episode define the entire thing for them.(going by The Good Wife, Agents of Shield, and Shameless)

Just feels like they've become unprofessional in a way, immensely nitpicky, or maybe it's because they use a terrible rating system.

Season one never got better than 'just ok,' season two starts out Fitz dealing with brain damage after the S1 finale and it owns so hard.

No, no, no.

Season 1 improved DRAMATICALLY by the time Turn, Turn, Turn rolled around.
It was loving awesome.

It started getting good with The Bridge, it had a couple more hiccups but it was mostly pretty good and then Turn, Turn, Turn happens and it was just so good and never really stopped getting better.

It's direct-to-Netflix. They get alllll the fucks they want. And given that the two trailers so far have been "Jessica is hungover" and "Jessica likes to drink and fight," to say nothing of how insanely brutal DD was, I don't imagine they're going to be going light on ANYTHING.

I kind of doubt that they'll have much swearing since DareDevil had very little, it'd make no sense for one show in the shared universe to have swearing and the other not.

Also I just wanted to re-iterate: I am so psyched for Jon Bernthal as Punisher in DD season 2. I've been re-watching The Walking Dead and he absolutely nails "barely controlled smoldering rage" in a lot of his scenes.

He was literally the only good thing about TWD, the show died with him.

Isn't Iron Fist after Luke Cage? So that's probably at least another year or two away.(or three, they can just make second seasons of JJ and LC, no?)

Angel is amazing but it definitely has its ups and downs.

The Jasmine arc and Connor are some of the worst things in the Buffverse though, unfortunately.
But it also has Fred, Illyria, and Wesley who are some of the best characters in the Buffyverse with some of the best arcs ever.

It was definitely a show that was literally just finding its feet when it got cancelled cause Joss was an overzealous dick that poked the bear that was The WB.

There's a rumor circulating and it's just a rumor so keep perspective, that a Punisher series is going to replace the proposed Iron Fist one.

Hm...
I'm ok with this.

Also makes more sense in the context of the Netflix Marvel Universe, Iron Fist is likely too fantastical for it.

Honestly, this is kind of Strange to me because well, Doctor Strange will be a thing before Iron Fist even comes out so it'll open those doors, won't it?

Watched the whole season spread out since Friday.

Great show, I might like it more than Daredevil!... But, I'd have to rewatch Daredevil to say for sure.
It was incredibly hard to binge, I had to take breaks between every almost every episode.

I actually never fully bought Krysten Ritter as Jessica but I suppose she'll eventually grow on me with more time, I don't know... something about her never clicked with me.

Everyone else was pretty much on point though, great performances all around with a notable mention towards Mike Colter who is a natural fit for Luke Cage and of course David Tennant acted circles around everyone.

Great finale too, better than Daredevil's.

Oh, please. Some of their critics are better than others, but they're great overall.

No, they aren't.
They're a bunch of pretentious knobs that get hung up on minute details and let that determine the overall grade of an episode or series.

And then they also cater to their own stupid community by constantly bringing up shipping and general tumblr crap.
