Does Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Need to Be Super to Succeed?

Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen

When ABC launched Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the series was predicated on the idea that not all heroes are super, meaning fans knew ahead of time that they weren't getting The Avengers on television. But that didn't really work with viewers, who slowly tuned out ...

What can you tell us about the new season of Girls? — Leona
Elijah (Andrew Rannells), Hannah's complicated roommate, will resurface with a new boyfriend in tow. Pal (ironic name alert!) is played by Buffy alum Danny Strong — who's also an Emmy winner for writing HBO's Sarah Palin movie Game Change  and he sounds like a handful. "I don't know if Hannah's a fan," Strong says. "I don't know if any of Elijah's friends are fans of Pal."

What's coming up on Castle? — Ginger

The "September" wedding is still a long way off. In the meantime, on Monday's episode, the death of... read more

Killer Women's Tricia Helfer Teases Murder, Mystery and Romance

Tricia Helfer

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 tough, but she's not one-note," Helfer tells TVGuide.com. "She's got her work, she's got her funny side and her vulnerable side." She's even got a bit of a quirky side, playing trumpet every week at a local bar.

Both raised on a ranch and growing up quite tomboyish, Helfer found it easy to relate to Molly right off the bat. And though she doesn't play the trumpet, Helfer did play clarinet in marching band. "I felt very close to her right when I read her for the first time," the actress explains.

After Seven Years in the Making, It's Finally Clear "Skies" for Psych: The Musical

Dule Hill, James Roday

To call Psych creator and executive producer Steve Franks an optimist would be a bit of an understatement.

When asked when he first thought of doing a musical episode of the USA cult favorite, Franks readily admits that it was during production on the pilot — before the project had even been picked up to series.

"We did a lot of driving shots where [stars James Roday and Dulé Hill are] being towed by a trailer and then the cameras are mounted on the car so when that happens, these two guys are stuck in the car," Franks tells TVGuide.com. "You can hear everything they're saying the whole time and... read more

5 Reasons Why The Originals Is Better Than The Vampire Diaries

Charles Michael Davis, Joseph Morgan

The Vampire Diaries may have some new competition in the vampire department... from its own spin-off!

The Originals has been The CW's strongest rookie performer, with its latest episode drawing 2 million viewers and a 0.9 in the adults 18-49 demographic, nipping at the heels of its predecessor, which drew 2.6 million and a 1.2 in its latest outing. The Vampire Diaries spin-off, which was picked up for a full season on Monday, also cracked the Top 5 in our Fall TV Popularity Contest, receiving a 57 percent approval rating from TVGuide.com users. (Fox's Sleepy Hollow came in first with 85 percent.)

The CW orders full seasons of The Originals, The Tomorrow People and Reign

But it's not just the ratings that prove The Originals has found a following. After only a handful of episodes, The Originals has... read more

Why S.H.I.E.L.D. Is This Season's Biggest Disappointment

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

 

I'm going to get right to the point: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is not good.

Five episodes in, and I'm ready to quit -- and I don't quit anything. I'm still watching Grey's Anatomy, Project Runway and yes, even the boys vs. girls season of America's Next Top Modelbut S.H.I.E.L.D. is pushing my limits.

Last week's episode was a small step in the right direction, finally introducing the show's Big Bad, Centipede. But I'm finding it hard to muster up anything beyond apathy towards this evil. 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:
