Unless we take some kind of drastic measure, we'll lose her.
—Simmons, about May, to Coulson and Director Mace

I don't think there's ever been an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that I haven't loved for one reason or another...or many others. By the end of the season, we'll see where "Uprising" falls, but I liked it a lot. ***Rewatching just the moments where Jemma said that May wouldn't last another day unless they did something drastic and Mace telling Coulson he has to deal with the blackout instead, those were small but powerful moments that turned my "liked it a lot" into "loved it a ton."

Any time Clark Gregg gets to do even the smallest thing, he's just golden, bringing so much emotion to a look, showing Coulson as both determined on the outside and scared as hell inside. Clark brilliantly and subtly conveys the concern of a man trying to keep it together while the person he knows best, the person he loves the most, is dying. He wears his heart, Coulson's heart, in every worried line on his face.

"Maybe she starts walking and she doesn't stop. You know, she obviously has zero interest in keeping this family together."
—Dean to Sam about Mary

Project Intro: Well, things have not gone to plan. I gave myself a project for the 2016-2017 TV season. I was going to tweet every episode of my five favorite dramas and then gather those tweets into post form, sprinkling in more commentary here and there. The only one I managed to finish was The Walking Dead S7E8, which took weeks, as is the usual for me when I get hung up on one amazing episode. So, the whole summer passed me by and I had nothing to show for it. But I'm not giving up on this project. I'm just turning it in past due, trying to avoid a two-season pile up by May. Good luck to me.

My how he's changed over the years. He still looks baby-faced; they both do. Cuties. If only I could find time for a rewatch of all these seasons. I just need to quit my job, which I will actually be doing to better focus on my small business, hopefully soon. I badly need more freedom.

Those were great, but my forever favorite names will always belong to Castiel and Crowley in "The Foundry" (12.3) as Agents Beyoncé and Jay Z. For more names the boys have used in their unofficial investigations across the country, check out Supernatural Wiki: Aliases.

This is so sweet and desperate and has got to hurt the heart of every fan. I hope Mary gets back to her boys soon.

I want more of Castiel and Crowley together. Their contentious relationship, with Crowley's sarcasm and Castiel's impatience with him, is the funniest thing.

"Coroner says signs of stigmata with a side of scrambled brains."
—Dean to Sam

Blech. This is one of the grosser ones. Also, lol. Also, it's giving me Fringe feels.

DDean climbing the fence, while Sam just walks around it. A giggle-worthy moment, followed by sad Dean lashing out at their absent mom. I loved that humor and anger in the same scene, so close to the surface.

"You ever notice we never get to check up on, like, a brightly-lit place filled with nice, friendly people?"
—Mack to Fitz

I gave myself a task for the 2016-2017 TV season. I was going to tweet every episode of my five favorite dramas and then post them here with sprinkles of extra commentary. Things did not go to plan. The only one I managed to finish was The Walking Dead S7E8, which took weeks. That's what I do when I get hung up on one amazing episode. After that I never caught up, but I'm not giving up on this project. I'm just turning it in past due and making sure I don't have a two-season pile up by next May. Wish me luck.

Here we have another fantastic episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Is there any other kind? If there were, then I wouldn't have to write so darn much about it. I actually got to pay attention this time. Last week I was trying to keep up with tweets. Guess I had to relearn that lesson. Because of that, I definitely missed some things and have to watch "The Ghost" again. Of course, I have to watch *all* episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. again.

"Who the hell are you guys?"

The superhero team-up that’s been forever in the making is almost here! I can hardly believe it was all the way back in 2008 that Iron Man came out and I fell truly, madly, deeply in love with the world of Marvel.

"Bet you thought you were all gonna grow old together, sittin' around the table at Sunday dinner, and the happily ever after."
—Negan to Rick

I know how much everyone loves doing this work and how they give their all to make the best show they can, to bring humanity to such a harrowing story... I was able to keep going for the superb acting. Andrew Lincoln had me absolutely mesmerized. He was nothing short of masterful throughout. And Lauren Cohan was at her best, faultless in her depiction of agony.
