Agents of SHIELD.
Repeat: There are no good superhero shows on television
Seriously, Agents of SHIELD started out woeful and took a huge leap in quality near the end of series 1. It's the platonic ideal of 80s comics in TV format.
And you complain about Friends...
AoS is still very drecky, low-tier quality. About at the same level than the CW shows, which is not saying much.
Have you seen Legion, btw? It's the "buzz" show of the moment =P
Yeah, see the first line there means the second one can be handily ignored as incorrect.
Dammit I was just about to reply to Robert with "I agree" and you preempted me
That's why Cap 2 bucked the trend and is considered by most to be the best of the "part 2" Marvel movies. It's the only sequel that wasn't just a formulaic rehash. And the reason is, because it completely changed the setting, and therefore the tone also. The disconnect between bombastic WW2 romp and gritty Bourne-with-helicarriers is as great as the disconnect in setting and tone between Alien and Aliens, and (as Jim noted earlier) that's what makes a sequel work.
I agree with this so much that I'm going to use imagery from a time that you understand to indicate my agreement:
I am genuinely moved to tears
Agreed... unfortunately it's about the only one... The rest are fairly "by the numbers", which is not a diss per-se since they're still enjoyable as heck, but I think everyone can see the similarities.
I really wish the Russos buck the trend once more with IW and make Thanos the main character of the movie... That'd be a double bucking of the trend =P
They should properly buck the trend, make it a musical.
This is certainly long overdue for a dramatisation:
Ha ha I remember that ad well.
An encyclopaedic knowledge of the ads that ran in 80s comics was bound to come in handy eventually
EDIT: That said, I'd watch the shit out of a Captain America musical if Rachel Bloom did the songs.
Legion is premium tv!!
Yeah, it's like they made a purposefully bland show for 2/3 of the season, just to really sell the shift in gears from Winter Soldier.
