The latest previews from Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' proved that the 'Avengers'-adjacent series will significantly expand its ranks before the May series finale, and its latest addition is the most fan-friendly yet. Comedian and voice of the nerd pantheon Patton Oswalt himself will join the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' in the coming weeks as Marvel comics' Agent Eric Koenig, hopefully bringing his patented 'Parks and Recreation' filibuster one step closer to reality.

Even with a premiere date of early 2013, we've still heard relatively little about the coming fourth season of FX's gunslinger drama 'Justified.'
