One of the scientists can be that young, and then maybe the hacker chick, although she would be better off being five years older. The worst casting by far was the agent guy, who looks like he should be on Gossip Girl and doesn't bring anything special to the table to begin to overcome that. Recast him with Max Martini and act like nothing happened.
    I dont' care about age, but they have to be memorable. I can't find myself really caring much about anyone besides Coulson..

    Man, you ain't kidding. Rewatching for the first time since it originally aired and dayummmm. If you go back you can actually pinpoint origins of some of your Breaking Bads/Sons/etc. Vic Mackey was the original good guy gone bad. Man, sooooooooo many people showed up on this program. Agent Coulson as the cuddler rapist was particularly interesting. See, I managed to tie back in...

    On season 4 now with Glenn Close and Anthony Edwards...two people who did some fine fine work on tv. I would even argue that with this and Damages, Close has never been better. If you have never seen...you should. Keep in mind when you watch that it was the first show of it's kind. Fx man...what a network.

    Yes, this after show talk thing needs to stop. I know that the 4,583 random cable channels need to fill time, but there are thousands of random shows from the past 100 years to fill that time. Why don't you rerun Silk Stalkings or LA Law or Benson or Sledge Hammer or something?

    Blacklist has a big lead for me for highest quality new drama. It feels like NBC knows this and is spending the money to make it look even better. Boring FBI guy is actually less boring when he is kicking ass. I actually mostly buy the beautiful lead female as a (new) FBI agent.

    Liking Sleepy Hollow a lot. It chose its fantastical elements (a dangerously high number of them) and then is doing a pretty good job at feeling realistic within a world where those elements exist. I continue to be very impressed with how well the male lead sells it and the fish-out-of-water humor is a new style since the fish comes from 250 years ago.

    I watched the first episode of Revolution and it was actually good (well, as good as Revolution can be). Way to ruin the big moment of the first episode with the reveal in the preview for the second episode, though. I'll probably keep falling behind until rerun season comes, though.

    The annoying chick on Brooklyn 99 keeps getting more and more annoying. Make her go away. Also, Mindy, figure out who the hell is on your show already. It's getting tired. But lose the annoying new nurse first.

    Liking Sleepy Hollow the best from the new dramas this year. When's the last time an apocalypse show was on TV? Millennium?

    Caught-up on Shield. It's not spectacular but gives just enough of that comic book/spy show vibe.

    Thanks for the Sleepy Hollow call out. My oldest daughter and I like it. Reminds me a bit like Night Stalker from when I was growing up. Something new and different each week but this has a master story pushing it along. The headless horseman (aka Death) is really great - can't wait for him to be reintroduced. Sleepy Hollow is good mindless style of fun where I can watch and not have to think too much.

    I just saw this in the TV guide so most won't see it. It starts in less then an hour on KOCE TV (PBS). It looks like it could be good.

    Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle.
