Well...not really. But, David Letterman couldn't help but bust Oscar Isaac's chops.
Last night saw ‘Agent Carter’’s “Blitzkrieg Button” opening up quite a bit of ground beneath Peggy and Howard Stark, but the March 3 return of Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ will really feel the “Aftershocks.” Get a first look at ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’'s Inhuman return and Skye’s transformation with our newest footage from the second half of season 2!
Look, when you produce 22 episodes a year, there are going to be some terrible episodes. Heck, it happens on 10- and 13-episode seasons as well. It happens all the time, even on the best of shows. Even ‘Lost’ produced “Stranger In A Strange Land,” an episode devoted to Jack Shephard’s tattoos, kites, and Bai Ling. ‘Lost’ is one of my favorite shows of all time, and that’s one of the worst episodes of television that I intentionally watched. So saying “The Sound And The Fury” was awful doesn’t mean ‘The Flash’ is suddenly awful. It just means the show had a bad week, the equivalent of Barry Allen tripping over something at supersonic speed and then tumbling into a brick wall. Everything’s fine, except for this episode.
This past weekend’s ‘SNL’ installment with ‘The Voice’ coach Blake Shelton pulling double duty proved every bit as exciting as it sounded (read: not), but what better way to restore the 40th anniversary season’s tempo than with ‘Whiplash’ master J.K. Simmons himself? Watch Simmons and Kenan brave the cold and bitter loneliness in this weekend’s ‘SNL’ promos!
Howard Stark returns on tonight’s ‘Agent Carter,’ introducing the concept of the titular “Blitzkrieg Button,” although it proves to be little more than a distraction piled on top of a distraction for Peggy, who’s already working so diligently to lead what is essentially a triple-life. While the men at the SSR talk about what it means to be an agent, which is the most important part of who they are, it’s only Peggy who truly knows both the cost and the value of dedicating your life to the job.
‘Justified’’s 6th and final season takes aim with its second 2015 installment in “Cash Game,” as Boyd grapples with Ava and attempts to uncover the significance of his latest heist, while Raylan brushes up against the new players in town mysteriously buying up Harlan land.
NBC’s ‘Hannibal’ season 3 won’t be served until summer 2015, but the fan-favorite Bryan Fuller drama has provided plenty of appetizers to tide us over. The latest juicy morsel will see ‘True Detective’ and ‘Boardwalk Empire’ baddie Glenn Fleshler taking yet another villainous role as ‘Hannibal’'s incarnation of literary character (and Mason Verger’s caretaker) Cordell.
After the stressful tug of war between Leslie and Ron in the first few episodes, it’s nice to see them united against a common enemy once again in this week’s two new episodes of ‘Parks and Recreation.’ While there were plenty of heartwarming moments to last week’s episodes, they definitely felt a bit more dramatic, but “Gryzzlbox” and “Save JJ’s” are wholly hilarious and both feature some perfect comedic rhythm.
As if any disbelief over Netflix’s impending ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ revival miniseries lingered, the streaming service has already taken us back to Camp Firewood to rejoin the cast. See the first teaser for Netflix’s apt and newly-named ‘Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,’ confirming the entire cast’s return as early as this summer!
Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ will return from a brief hiatus tonight to push “The Blitzkrieg Button” on Howard Stark, but theirs aren’t the only major returns in line for the ‘Captain America’ spinoff. Next week’s “The Iron Ceiling” will see Dum Dum Dugan and the rest of the Howling Commandos return, as seen in the hour’s full photo set!
