It was about a month ago that I shared the SDCC Trailer for “The Orville” TV Series and if you didn’t catch that post just click HERE so you are all caught up. That series premieres tonight on Fox at 8pm (but those outside of the NYC metro region will need to check their own listings). The Official Series poster is below and I’ve reprinted the premise and casting for the interested.
Another trailer that made an appearance during the Comic Con International: San Diego was for this new Science Fiction show called “The Orville”. Its a creation of Seth MacFarlane who is most famously known for both “Family Guy” and “American Dad”.
The Premise: The Orville is set on the titular U.S.S. Orville (ECV-197), a mid-level exploratory vessel 400 years in the future.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This looks like it MIGHT be interesting but I am not too sure of how invested I can get in another show because I am already risking running low on DVR space based on The CW Network’s bevy of shows that I’m recording. I love Science Fiction of course but not sure if I really need a half comedy and half dramatic presentation of such a thing. What did you readers think of the trailer? Did it make you curious enough to program your DVR to binge a few episodes? Let me know down in the comments section below.
Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its television connected series will be excited to know that tonight will be the Season 3 premier of “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and if you are one of those viewers who decided to give up early on in the first season you have been missing out. Check out the brief premise for S3 along with the poster and cast and then I will return with some thoughts.
The third season of the American television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is based on the Marvel Comics organization S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division), revolves around the character of Phil Coulson and his team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and allies, who begin a secret mission to assemble a team of Inhumans to deal with new threats to the world, while others are also tracking down members of the group. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise. The season is scheduled to premiere on ABC on September 29, 2015, and consist of 22 episodes. It is produced by ABC Studios, Marvel Television, and Mutant Enemy Productions, with Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, and Jeffrey Bell serving as showrunners.

Have you been keeping up with Marvel’s “Agents Of SHIELD” yet? If not, I understand you since the first season dragged on a little bit and at times was finding me questioning whether or not I wanted to stick with it. Of course I decided to rally behind it since once on the DVR its always easy to zip past the slow parts. Plus I wanted to see how much referencing was being done to the films that are coming out faster than ever. Anyway, the second season begins tonight and I’ve added the poster, premise and casting. Check it out.
Premise: The series follows the character of Phil Coulson, with Clark Gregg reprising his role from the films, and his team of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division) agents. The season sees Coulson, the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., attempt to rebuild the organization with his team of agents and allies, following its collapse with the infiltration of the terrorist organization Hydra. They are forced to operate in secrecy due to being wanted fugitives, and hunt down the remaining threats of Hydra. Several characters from Marvel Cinematic Universe films and Marvel One-Shots appear throughout the season. (taken from Wikipedia).
