Let’s talk TV: DC vs. Marvel

After giving them a few days to settle and to look through them we are here to talk about the Two big TV shows we’ve been waiting for. First it was Gotham! It looked amazing but to be honest we were afraid that it would not live up to all the hype. Then quickly following that we had Agents of Shield going into their second season. I wasn’t big on the first season until the end. They finished strong and we wondered if they would start the same. So let’s dig in.

Gotham

Sold as a show to show Gotham in a new way. A world before Batman and to shed a light on the under belly that we think we know. Sounds like a perfect show to me! This would solve one of DC’s bigger problems if you ask us. It would make it more human, more relatable. And it did just that.

We’ve all seen the scene where Bruce’s  parents die. Bad guy comes out from shadows, robs them, and then bang bang. But that’s where it ends. It was awesome to me just getting to see past that. All the bad guys they introduced, even if they weren’t quiet the people we know just yet.

Out of all the easter eggs laid through the pilot episode, the best part of the show for me was the Penguin. I loved the way they played him and the actor did great. The shot below was one of the highlights of the show to me. What was your favorite part?

Overall: 8/10

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

Like we said at the beginning,  we weren’t big on this show until towards the end of the first season. They tied it all together, even with the movies, and ended strong. They started just as strong!

With shield in pieces and Hydra found to be strong as ever, the scene is set. The story looks great and the direction seems a little more aimed and focused.  Not to mention they brought in one of my favorite bad guys ever… Crusher Creel!

The effects were good, the fights were even better, and the actor did… great? He didn’t really have to do much but pull of the fight scenes and look awesome, which he did. I love the way this show is going but I’m still having a hard time buying in 100%. Hopefully they will be able to hook me soon! What about you? Will you be watching every week?

Overall: 7/10
