Fits of Television

I'm having such a TV binge.

All caught up now on Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Agents of SHIELD, and Agent Carter. :D The to-read list already includes a mental note to check out [personal profile] luthien's fic about Miss Fisher's companion, along with the rest of that fandom's busy Yuletide. Wouldn't mind some suggestions for Agents of SHIELD femslash or Agent Carter het.

Watching more first episodes... with mixed results.

Instant like: Galavant - first episode quickly followed by the remaining seven, and much snickering and actor-spotting: Sophie McShera (Daisy from Downton Abbey), Rutger Hauer, Weird Al Yankovic, Anthony Stewart Head.

Instant Do Not Want: The 100 - or, Logan's Run meets Lord of the Flies. Feels like a whole bunch of tropes and stock characters stitched together. One episode's enough for me.

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland - will/won't watch more, maybe, I dunno. Didn't hate it. Suspect it might be a fandom where the fic is better than the show.

Forever - will watch more, very likely - Ioan Gruffudd is quite impressive as an addition to the list of fictional characters aged 200+ - think of the crossover potential with the tales of Angel or Lestat.

Backed away without watching: Hannibal, Continuum, Reign, Kingdom.

Still in the queue of first episodes: Hindsight, The Librarians, Vikings, Orphan Black, Penny Dreadful, Brooklyn Nine Nine.
