With ‘Dexter’ spilling its final bloodshed and ‘Breaking Bad’ heading for a combustible finish next week, cult TV fans are likely chomping at the bit for a new obsession.
It may be lighter and shinier, but ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ is a good bet – and is unlikely to get a short-shrift early cancellation after debuting on ABC with the strongest ratings for a US drama in nearly four years.
Joss Whedon’s hot new property, following the exploits of supposedly deceased Agent Coulson and his fellow superhero shepherds, has done something unexpected following Whedon’s former glories that were all brilliant but, ‘Buffy’ aside, largely unwatched: it’s attracted viewers!
Of course, there was no doubting a Marvel TV show was going to do well following the mega-bucks earnings of its cinematic canon, so now us UK viewers can relax ahead of the C4 premiere tomorrow night knowing full well that it will at least get a full season.
