Mutants and superheroes.

++ I just started watching The Gifted, and I have to say I'm impressed with the show so far. I'm still making my way through the currently aired episodes and will probably do a proper review of it once the season is over, but the pilot episode really drew me in. I liked the tension, the ensemble cast of characters. There is a lot of potential here for this series and I'm curious to see where it'll go.

++ I'm all caught up with Bull, and I just have to say I'm a little disappointed that Eliza Dushku's character didn't stick around as long as I'd hoped, since I thought I had initially read that she was going to be a recurring both in the first season and continuing in the second season. Turns out that was only for the last several episodes of the first season. She was amazing in those, though, and they did leave the door open for the possibility of a return. Aside from that, the show continues to be a nice enjoyable procedural with interesting cases. Though, I do wish we would get more with the ensemble cast. We do get snippets here and there of their lives outside of work, never overwhelming us, but it still remains in the "this is good, but I want more of who they are" territory. Basically, I just want more Cable. That is essentially all I am looking for. She hasn't been featured as much this season, or seen in many of the interactions with the rest of the team as she should be. I am hoping for an episode dedicated to something involving her this season, mostly because I want to know more about her and her backstory.

++ Agents of SHIELD is finally coming back for their fifth season on December 1st. I'm bummed that they pushed the season premiere this far, and I hope it doesn't affect the show because of this setback. Regardless, I can't wait to see my girl Daisy (❤) back on my screen.

++ After seeing it all over my Tumblr dash, I've been slightly curious about Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. It looks spectacularly weird. I did a little research on it and watched a small bit from a random episode and I'm still confused, but intrigued by the concept. But mostly because I'm already rather fond of the character Amanda Brotzman. Amanda and The Rowdy Three are the biggest draws to the show for me at this point, just going by what I've read and briefly seen. I can already tell that if/when I start watching the show their dynamic is going to be my favorite.
