Well, the two network shows that have carried me through the summer are coming to an end next week. First up is the conclusion of Stargirl on the CW and DC Universe app. The show has been a great blend of history and the contemporary, or light and darkness (sometimes really dark), hope and despair. I really hope the final episode gets to be a little longer (like the first two episodes), as there’s a lot that needs resolving. Here’s the final preview:
I look forward to a rewatch of the season sometime down the road, probably before 2020 comes to an end.
And then there’s Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD on ABC, which has done a good job of bringing on the pathos as it wraps up it’s seven-season run. I had hoped to actually see more time-jumps into previous season, but that hasn’t happened. We got some name drops in this week’s episode, which was nice but maybe not enough for this sentimentalist. But the stakes for the finale are appropriately high on multiple levels. And we get two hours on Wednesday, which is a treat. Here’s the final preview:
I have no idea what to expect with this finale. I’m hopeful, of course, but the looming threat of an erased timeline is something I never look forward to. May the show has one more trick up its sleeve. We’ll find out in a week.
