Female Texas Rangers are few and far between and who better to join their ranks than beloved badass Tricia Helfer — at least on TV.
Killer Women (premieres Tuesday, 10/9c, ABC) stars Helfer as Molly Parker, a Texas Ranger whose gender certainly influences her work but never defines her.

She's even got a bit of a quirky side, playing trumpet every week at a local bar.

Why should I care whether or not Coulson's team can save the world from Centipede when they haven't given me a single reason to care about the people doing the saving? Here are seven ways that S.H.I.E.L.D. went wrong:

Hardin, who also recurred on USA's Monk, will play Nan Reed, the long-suffering spouse of a yahoo husband who browbeats Nan into getting plastic surgery whenever the mood strikes. Or at least he does until she's finally had enough.

To say Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is highly anticipated is an understatement.
After The Avengers pulled in $1.5 billion globally and other Marvel blockbusters like Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger and the Iron Man franchise succeeded at the box office, ABC's collaboration with Marvel appeared to be a sure thing. Add to that that S.H.I.E.L.D. marks the television return of Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and Avengers director Joss Whedon, who brings with him even bigger expectations for the new series.
