    Did not like Agents of SHIELD but really enjoyed the Marvel One-Shot Agent Carter. Hope the series can match that.

    I think S.H.I.E.L.D. has picked up this last half of the season. I read an article somewhere that talked about how they had to kinda kill some time before they could start doing the tie-in with Captain America.

    I tried The Neighbors for a few episodes the first season, but I just could not get into it. I have been recording Trophy Wife, mostly for Bradley Whitford, but I have only watched a few episodes of it. I thought that what I watched was ok... not great. Mixology I also recorded but have not started watching yet.

    My backlog on comedies this season is ginormous... Modern Family (15), Suburgatory (10), Trophy Wife (19), The Goldbergs (21), and Mixology (11) just on ABC alone! Plus The Millers (21), Growing Up Fisher (10), The Mindy Project (19), About a Boy (10), New Girl (22), Mike & Molly (12), 2 Broke Girls (21), The Crazy Ones (19), and Mom (22). :eek: Plus I had all of Enlisted on there but I deleted it last week because there was just too much. I need to figure out if I am going to do the same with any of the rest, or start streaming those instead of Netflix at the gym. :)

    Agree. I really liked it. Had a great vibe, and the interaction between Trophy Wife and the exes was very well done. Kids were all fun too.

    I really like this show. Someone else around here called it the "Cute Show". That is exactly what it is. Too bad it won't be back.:(

    I've seen nothing that says Suburgatory is cancelled. Doesn't mean it won't, but don't jump the gun.

    My heart won't be broken, but I will miss Trophy Wife.

    As for Suburgatory, I can see how its continuance might be limited but I would also miss this one. That Dalia character, who made me cringe in the beginning, has become a favorite character.

    Suburgatory little spoiler -

    As for George and Dallas, maybe if they are going to end the show they will marry them off or something, since they were looking kind of 'together' again in the end of the most recent episode.

    I wrote my first impressions of most of the new ABC drama pick-ups on my blog about TV and running (my twin obsessions). I think "The Whispers" sounds really goofy and will probably be a disaster, but I might check it out anyway. "How to Get Away With Murder" sounds like "Beverly Hills 90210" in law school, but I teach law so I might have to watch it.

    Galavant looks like something that could get canceled early. A musical, comedy, fairytale... Really?

    Still nothing on Nashville... really getting the impression that it is a goner.

    "The Whispers" is based on a short story by Ray Bradbury entitled "Zero Hour". A very short story, as in about eight pages long. It'll be interesting to see how they stretch it out to a season (or more).

    Is it just me or is it odd that all of these canceled/renewed announcements are coming out the week before the TV upfronts - isn't that when we used to find all this out, as the networks unveiled their fall line-ups? I don't remember all these announcements coming out before that week. Seems odd.

    Oh well. I read that Resurrection got renewed and I think that and SHEILD are the only shows I watch on ABC so I'm good. Hopefully some of there new comedies are good - I'm still missing Happy Endings and Apartment 23



    (bring back Happy Endings!!!)

    The upfronts is when they unveil the slotted schedule to the advertisers. They have to have all the contracts for the shows in place before that point, which means this week.

    I know but all these announcements used to come out during the upfronts. It used to be an exciting week for TV nerds like myself.

    Probably better to get it out of the way before the Upfronts, so the Upfronts are positive stuff, instead of 1/2 cancellations, 1/2 new shows.
