Television Shows March 9 to March 15


It's time for another round of TV commentaries! No Flash, Arrow or Rebels for the time being, but that leaves me with five shows to keep on top of.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Who You Really Are ended the deception plot pretty quickly. Of course, Jemma didn't really have time to react yet so I don't know how it's going to be handled, but that would have been really annoying were it to be drawn out for three or four episodes, so I appreciate that. This episode is kind of making me wonder if Captain Mar-vell is going to be introduced in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. That would be interesting, largely because it would mean that it would interact in some way with Carol Danvers' Captain Marvel if AoS is still going on by then.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Battle of New York is the sequel story to “The Invasion” and it's one that we've been waiting for since the end of Season 2. Fittingly, it's a double-length (or a two-parter aired in one go, whichever you prefer) episode. Leonardo announced after a power upgrade that they were returning to New York, and here they do, along with a whole bunch of other characters we haven't seen in a while. This episode truly lives up to its title and is a real battle, with eight mutants doing everything they can to drive the Krang out of New York. Oh, and the return of the Turtle Blimp, which really says all I need to say about this episode: I loved it.

Power Rangers Dino Charge: The Tooth Hurts was...okay. The conflict was pulled off fairly well, for Power Rangers. The resolution seemed a bit off. Again, not that I expect perfect from Power Rangers, but Green seemed to take Black too much to heart – rather than combining the two methods. Still, I may be taking the words a bit too literally; after all, it starts with everybody joining the Green method before he tells them that it’s going to be the Black method.

Normally on a slow week like this I would like to supplement this with webshows, or shows that I don't normally watch. Unfortunately, I'm rather backed up at the moment, and rather appreciative of the fact that I only have three shows to watch. So this is a short one from me.

I need to watch all the Flash shows yet. I watched the premiere and liked what I saw, but then the nights it's on life took over. I had quit watching SHIELD a few seasons ago. They were getting boring and life had other events on their nights too. But I want to get caught up here. Maybe this summer.

Hulu and are my lifelines for these shows. By the way, not that much to catch up on for AoS - they're only about two thirds of the way (or so) through the second season.

William, that is good to hear on AoS. I won't feel so swamped with shows then. :)
