Tuesday’s Best Reviewed: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Almost a new first as Person of Interest‘s strange episode burn-off has it airing both Mondays and Tuesdays, and it is on a roll with its second solid outing — although not quite as ridiculously received as Monday’s return of Sarah Shahi’s Agent Shaw. Marvel superfans still licking their wounds over the loss of Agent Carter, can take some solace in the fact that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is on a roll (also Jessica Jones returns soon, and Luke Cage begins). Elsewhere, The Flash goes out with a bang, The Night Manager phones it inand superior sitcoms The Real O’Neals and Fresh Off the Boat have funny, but not particularly memorable episodes.

Tuesday, May 17th’s Best: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (8.6/10)

Alex McCown at AV Club, points out they made death-ade out of the dangerous game of over-hyping an upcoming character demise before raving “this two-hour conclusion reminded the audience of everything great about Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.—that’s a kick-ass achievement in its own right.” Vulture‘s Scott Meslow is more sanguine, observing “don’t hold any surprises, but the finale still manages to connect on an emotional level.”

The Rest of the Night:


Person of Interest – 8.4

The Night Manager – 7.5

The Real O’Neals – 7.5

The Flash – 7.3

Fresh Off the Boat – 7.0
