After a really good debut season, the show tops itself with a much better, improved and exciting second season!
I love how this season makes the show has more impact on the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we still get to see the S.H.I.E.L.D. vs. HYDRA conflict going on while also standing out on its own without its dependence on other Marvel Cinematic Universe properties.
I loved how this season has no filler episodes and it has a very tight story arc that it plays out as a very long, yet entertaining movie. The story arcs were excellently executed with excellent writing and they get fair amounts of screen time.
The effects were surprisingly much better than the previous season. I was surprised that this show with only decent ratings can get really good special effects.
The new additions to the the team Bobbi, Hunter and Mack made this show more fun to watch. One of my favorite parts of them being the new additions to the team are Bobbi and Hunter’s hate-love chemistry which is adorable and funny.
The character development is also excellently executed. There were a lot of character developments that I really liked so I can only list a few. I liked the character development of Skye as she becomes more of a bad-ass and she learns more about her origins and her parents as well as her new-found discovery that she is an Inhuman. Another character development I liked was Agent May’s as we get to finally see what made Agent May who she is today in her titular “Melinda” episode. I also liked the conflict between Fitz and Simmons as they have a different way of handling their trauma from the previous season in which it’s heartbreaking to watch as a FitzSimmons fan.
The sophomore season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. shows they deserved to exist as a TV show and a Marvel propriety and it screams out excitement and thrills with tight storytelling, excellently executed plot arcs and character development and brand new characters that fit in the show just fine.… Full Review »

As an Asian myself, it’s really nice and refreshing to see an American TV sitcom show that has an Asian-American main cast.
The HuangAs an Asian myself, it’s really nice and refreshing to see an American TV sitcom show that has an Asian-American main cast.
The Huang family can be quite stereotypical at times and it felt like watching an Asian-American family with white family values. In fact, this sitcom has possesses the family sitcom cliches. However, those are easily forgiven as the family is still relatable as I saw the situations I had as a child being replayed for the small screen.
The patriarchy and the matriarchy of the Huang Family namely Louis and Jessica Huang respectively are the stars of the show. Played by Randall Park and Constance Wu respectively, they made the show fun to watch as their differences on personality and handling situations is the key recipe of creating this sitcom.
One of the themes I liked about this show is living in a neighborhood that is predominately owned by white people as a minority and the show handled this with relatable humor as Jessica Huang delivers her witty remarks about American culture, which Louis has an obsession on.
Despite the show using family sitcom cliches, Fresh Off the Boat nailed their first season with funny relatable moments and great screen presence of Randall Park and Constance Wu playing as Louis and Jessica Huang respectively.… Full Review »
Someone mentioned the "ABC touch" in regards to their supernatural series like Resurrection, and The Whispers suffers from that a little bitSomeone mentioned the "ABC touch" in regards to their supernatural series like Resurrection, and The Whispers suffers from that a little bit in it's execution. But thanks to Mark Romanek's input in the pilot, it carries a nice mood and sense of dread. It's nice to see Lily Rabe get a lead role after such great supporting work on AHS, although her role is a bit cliche for now. Can we ever get over the working Mom cliche, feeling guilt for being away from her child? But then, children are the focus of the series, so I guess that cliche is warranted. And, as always with pilot episodes, there's a lot of exposition to get through, but The Whispers kept each plot point well paced. I have to commend the child actors, the strongest aspect of the show. Sometimes I wince at child actors (Kira in Orphan Black has been bugging me lately), but the child actors, sp the main daughter character, are very natural and creepy, which would seem not easy to pull off. All in all, curious to see where this heads. Or how soon it'll run off the rails.… Full Review »
