It’s been a while since my last TV Thursday post, and though my last post a few weeks ago was an introductory post about a new series- about my opinion on international shows and whether they are superior in quality to U.S. shows, I thought I would write a short special blog (combining it with Futuristic Fridays as well) as I delve into the concept of humans wanting to live forever- a theme that has been interwoven time and time again on TV, and more so this year on plenty of shows!

The wait is officially over. If you’re a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe like me; then you are well aware that Agents Of SHIELD premiered its second season this week. If you have read my recap on Agents Of SHIELD Season 1 and are still unsure and hence wondering when the new season starts, let me say that the first episode of Season 2 (“Shadows”) premiered this past Tuesday at 9p. Let me tell you it was a total game changer, setting events in motion til at leat the mid season finale, and there’s plenty of parallel storylines to talk about and analyse.

Top 10 ___: Top Ten Activities To Undertake At The Beach!

bondi_beach

Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens, which is posting roughly every Sunday, Australian time. We have been on a break for a couple of weeks, thinking about new topics so that this series doesn’t become stale, and here we are again with a new and fresh perspective. Last time I went very specific, and shared my top 10 new characters I would like to see on one of my favourite TV shows, Once Upon a Time (in the upcoming 4th Season and beyond). Now we’re pulling things back to the more general.

So here we are. At the end of the freshman run of a show struggling for ratings, and a show that might not be renewed. USA Network’s Rush ended its first season today (although I was quite sure that there were 12 episodes this season, not ten), and it ends the season quite dramatically. Many of the things that were certain now aren’t, and I have to say, the show surprised me in the end in a very good way, so much so that I would be disappointed if the show was cancelled, though a few episodes ago I probably wouldn’t have cared.
