Howdy ladies and gents, and welcome to What I’m Currently Watching where I give you a tiny update on what TV-based stuff I’m watching and give mini reviews/impressions on them. This is week 18th and I apologize for leaving this post so late but I’ve been a little on the busy side this week so I’ll only be talking about three shows today. With that out of the way let’s talk about some TV! 😀 Oh and careful for spoilers below…
Agent Carter (Season 2) “The Atomic Job”
Agent Carter at this point I can’t recommend enough, I really love this show now. Things are starting to escalate a little with Whitney Frost wanting to set off an atomic bomb to make use of her Zero Matter powers and Peggy assembling a team to stop her. Having Peggy have a team for the Roxxon break was great because it allowed for more of an interesting dynamic beyond her already fun adventures with Jarvis and more recently Sousa too, I’ve liked the way Rose has been used in this season so far with a little more interaction with Peggy and Sousa, but man she seriously kicked ass in this episode. Who knew she was fighter or that she was such a good flirt/manipulator of men? That woman was crafty! And even an inconsequential character like Samberly got to step into the field and show off his gadgets and skills. Other things I liked was the fact that Calvin was starting to stand up for himself, but was still put back in his place by Whitney who clearly is enjoying her new abilities, seeing Peggy get impaled was horrible, but it did allow Violet to patch Peggy up and then realise that even though she wanted to marry Sousa before, she’s not dumb and could see that Sousa still had feelings for Peggy (oooooo relationship drama). This may be my favourite episode so far, or at be my favourite when it came to the humour. From Jarvis and Peggy discussing possible infiltration techniques for Roxxon that all ended in death to Peggy constantly zapping Hugh Jones while trying to find his key to seeing the strange yet interesting interactions between Rose and Samberly were fun, oh and how good was the slow motion walk scene with Peggy and her crew. 😀 This episode just had a lot of everything and so many moments just made me want to laugh or smile.
The Flash (Season 2) “Welcome to Earth-2”
Man I really liked week’s episode of The Flash and it might be my favourite of the season so far. It was so strange, different and awesome with Barry, Cisco and Harrison Wells travelling to the much-talked about Earth-2. Seeing all of the subtle similarities and many differences for all of the current and past characters from the prime Earth was so cool and interesting. I loved the use of Killer Frost and Firestorm, learning about Reverb and seeing his interaction with Cisco was amazing, and having Barry live the life of his Doppelganger and discovering the differences in his life with Iris, Joe, the police station and his mother lead to some funny and emotion moments. This episode had a lot of the best sci-fi elements that Iove when it comes to futuristic worlds and cause and effect, oh and towards the end with Zoom showing up and once again establishing his dominance by killing Reverb, Firestorm and capturing Barry, shit, totally surprised by that and can’t wait to see how Barry will escape.
Star Wars Rebels (Season 2) “The Call”
This week’s episode of Rebels was good and much more entertaining than last week. I liked that this was another episode where the Ghost crew in a tight spot with them cold, lacking many options and close-to-death due to their lack of energy for their starship. But I also liked how this was an episode that focused on the use of the Force and made those moments between Ezra and the Purrgill special and kind of magical/supernatural, and once again reinforces that Ezra is a strong individual with the Force (probably more foreshadowing for later events). Even though I love Hera, I did find her pessimism towards the Purrgill a little annoying, I mean sure she explained her reasoning later on but it was a little frustrating to see that she had no faith in Ezra’s instincts.
Well that’s what I’ve been watching. So have you seen or plan to watch any of these shows? If you have any thoughts be sure to drop a comment below and let me know what TV shows you’re currently watching too. Until next time, laters! 😀
