Missed It the First Time Round-up

Recently I’ve had to opportunity to catch some science fiction and fantasy television I missed the first time around. A few of these have been very popular shows, but I just never got around to watching for one reason or another. Here’s a short summary of what I tried and my thoughts.

True Blood

I wasn’t as excited by this as I thought I’d be. Although I watched about 4 episodes, I never did get into the story enough to want to keep going. I finally went to an online source, read a bunch of spoilers and then decided this one just wasn’t for me. I fall much more to the science fiction side of SFF television.

Wolf Blood

I know, it’s a show aimed at a younger audience. But you know what? I really like it. I haven’t finished the first season yet, but I know that when I get in the right mood, I’ll be revisiting this one.

The Originals

I’ve watched almost half a season of this show, but I think I’m done. I’m not sure what it is, but maybe it’s the excessive drama. I’m not a fan.

Bitten

I liked the first season of Bitten, a lot! But something happened over the break and now that I have access to the second season, I’m not finding myself so interested in continuing. I started the first episodes of season two and bailed within ten minutes. Something about the opening just turned me off in a major way and at this time, I don’t know that I’ll ever bother to watch more.

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

It’s hard to define my reaction to this one. I’ve liked what I’ve seen of the first season, but I haven’t found myself tempted to watch more. I don’t think I’m done with this show, but I also don’t feel any sort of compulsion to keep watching. I think… and this is just my gut feeling… I just don’t like the main female lead, Skye. I don’t know, but since I’m only through four episodes, I’m going to say I’ll probably watch more, eventually, when the right mood hits me.

And that’s it for this summary. I’m always looking for that next big obsession when it comes to the television shows I watch. It turns out none of these are that for me, but maybe in the next batch!
