10.) Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

I fought hard for this one. “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” is, with all due respect to the second half of “Homeland’s” Season 4, the most improved show of 2014. Marvel basically took all the criticism of the show’s first season to heart and did everything in its power to fix those problems. The pacing never slowed, questions were answered, the relationships were more genuine (Fitz and Simmons are MVPs) and, most importantly, Skye (and Chloe Bennett) proved her worth to the team. Oh, and it also has a far-reaching impact on the Marvel Universe with the introduction of Daisy Johnson and The Inhumans. Excelsior! – Josh

THE GOOD WIFE, S6E10 ROUNDTABLE: ‘Darkness at noon’

Standard

By Anamika Roy and David Oliver

Excuse us as we wipe away our tears after watching this week’s episode. IS IT JANUARY YET? Aside from Alicia threatening to stab a teacher, this week’s episode squarely focused on Cary’s trial and the results were horrifying. We watch this show for in admiration of its complex character development and storytelling. We admire its use of the law and the justice system but recognize that it is a TV show. However, this episode exposed all the uncertainties in a trial that can translate into real life. And that is what made this episode such a nail biter.

Standard

By Anamika Roy and David Oliver

This show is taking us through a dark and winding path this season. We’re not sure where the show is headed but there’s that feeling that something terrible is going to happen to one of the characters. The only question is who. After this week’s episode, Kalinda seems to be the one with the target on her back.

THE GOOD WIFE, S6E5 ROUNDTABLE: #StartupProblems

Standard

By Anamika Roy and David Oliver

This episode was much more low-key than the rest of the season thus far. I would say it was boring but really, it was a nice break from the action and an homage to the tempered procedural this show used to be in its earlier seasons. That being said, there were plenty of developments within Florrick, Agos and Lockhart and Alicia’s campaign for State’s Attorney. We even got to see the return of cooky-yet-genius lawyer Elsbeth Tascioni (Carrie Preston).
