This jam-packed Friday is dominated by a host of new and intriguing streaming options, but also features a returning Marvel hero (or heroes) and potential twists and turns on an ol’ NBC favorite.
With its monsters, crafty kids, and 1980s flourishes, and many things that are stranger than your average bear, this 10-episode German import is inevitably getting compared to you know what. Let’s try to keep an open mind (while surely seeing how it stacks up).
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. [ABC, 8p]
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. … in space? Yup! Our heroes go interstellar in the two hour season premiere.
Blue Bloods [NBC, 10p]
Danny’s partner almost dies of an accidental overdose. I’m sorry, WHAT?!
Also On Tap Tonight:
- Joe Swanberg’s Chicago anthology series returns tonight on Netflix. This season, Easy adds an impressive line-up of new faces (including Judy Greer, Aubrey Plaza, Joe Lo Truglio, and Kate Berlant) to join forces with its already tight repertory cast (Kate Micucci, Jane Adams, Marc Maron, and many others).
- The woefully underrated inner city high school drama East Los High hangs it up tonight on Hulu. Our Navani Otero vouches for it here.
- Madagascar spin-off All Hail King Julien returns tonight for a fifth season on Netflix. No, the editor writing this did not regularly sing “I Like To Move It” around the time the movie came out (Same Ed.’s Note: He totally did!!!)
