The Weekly Round-Up – 22/03-28/03

Another week, another round of playing of catch-up (although this post isn’t quite as late as the last one…). I’m now completely up-to-date with my TV, and terribly behind schedule with my revision – got my priorities in check once again. This week was notably a little quieter than usual, as the mid-season newbies started to settle into their groove.

Arrow Banner - Season 3

One show that has begun to stick out like a sore thumb however is Arrow. Arguably my favourite series in 2013/14, Season 2 took this pioneering comic book show to new heights. This year? Not so much. Barring a few individual moments of magic, this season has been bogged down in contrived character drama and a lack of overall direction. Luckily, things may be about to change in the season’s final stretch – and there’s a Squad back in town…

Joining it’s under-performing sister show was the in-form The Flash, along with returns for Agents Of SHIELD and more…


Sunday, 22/03


Brooklyn Nine-Nine will return 03/05.


The Last Man On Earth Banner - Title

The Last Man On Earth, FOX – Dunk The SkunkSome Friggin’ Fat Guy

I have to give it to the writers, they are really nailing the twists and turns on this show. The ‘funny stuff’ on the other hand? It’s a little bit iffy. It doesn’t help that Phil has become the most unlikeable protagonist on TV. Or is that just the show’s charm? – 8/10 | 8/10


Monday, 23/03


Gotham will return 13/04.


Tuesday, 24/03


Agents Of SHIELD Banner - Title

Agents Of SHIELD, ABC – Love In The Time Of Hydra

After a breath-taking first half of a season, things appear to be stuttering a little on the AOS front. The absence of Whitehall is regrettable, while there has been a lot of table setting in recent weeks too. Hopefully this is just the calm before the storm… – 8/10

The Flash, The CW – Rogue Time

Gloriously entertaining with a few sloppy moments, The Flash still remains the in-form superhero show of 2015, so far. Wentworth Miller is so incredibly watchable as the devious Captain Cold, while the variety of Rogues on display just keeps on getting better – 8/10


Community Banner - Title

Community, YHO – Basic Crisis Room Decorum

Things aren’t quite clicking on the Community front – and a lot of the reasons behind that are out of the writers control (missing characters etc.). Yet the fact is: the show doesn’t feel like it once did. It’s still quite funny, but it’s no longer streets ahead – 8/10


Wednesday, 25/03


Arrow Banner

Arrow, The CW – Suicidal Tendencies

The return of The Suicide Squad. Arrow vs. The Atom… what’s not to like? There’s a sense of Season 2’s excitement here as the show abandons (most of) the silly drama for two solid storylines. Here’s to you Floyd, its a damn shame WB had to have you killed… – 8/10


Thursday, 26/03


The Big Bang Theory will return next week.

The Blacklist, NBC – The Longevity Initiative

At times more than a little monotonous, I’ve come to the realisation that I’m no longer interested in The Blacklist‘s weekly mysteries. But give me another hint towards the overall Red/Lizzie connection, or just more Tom Keen, and I’ll keep watching – 7/10


Elementary will return next week.
