I've really been enjoying the Marvel Agents of Shield series. Always a twist and turn and action galore. You really have to follow everything to know what's going on. I don't usually enjoy superhero themed movies etc, but this I find very good. Again probably because of the constantly shifting plotlines.

Watching this show finally proved to my wife that she is not the multitasker she thought she was. She's coped enough "Just concentrate and watch the show" from my kids when she couldn't keep up with the plotline to know to put her tablet away.

I love Agents Of Shield!  I will be glad when the new episodes start up again.  I am betting that they held back a little to make sure that their stories line up with the Capt. America: Civil War movie just as they did with Avengers:  Age Of Ultron.  I would love to see a couple of the SHIELD agents show up in the movie but I am sure they won't.  Colson could easily be in the film and add some real feeling that they are still working together since he is the director.  You can see evidence of the civil war starting on the show.  It would be a shame to not interconnect the two.

I've been getting into Gotham.  I started watching it this week while I've been off work due to snow.  It has almost as many plot twists as Agents Of SHIELD.  They had a Joker type character that they have killed off, but somehow I don't think he really is dead.  The actor had the perfect blend of Caeser Romero, Jack Nicholson, and Heath Ledger all rolled into one psychotic fiend feasting on murder and mayhem.  I think the guy will be back.

We've thoroughly enjoyed Gotham, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil.

Watched one or two episodes of Agent Carter and did not enjoy.
Watched one episode of Supergirl and did not enjoy.
Watched one episode of Flash and sort of enjoyed but have not taken the time to watch more.
Watched bits and pieces of Arrow but it seemed boring. Perhaps I didn't give it a fair shot?

My girls like to watch the 1980s Wonder Woman shows on MeTV and most of us enjoy watching the 1960s Batman on the same channel.

The other day, we watched the last half of the Captain American film that came out in 1990 and were mildly amused.

I've liked pretty much all the Marvel movies up to this point (though Age of Ultron was a bit iffy). I really liked Daredevil and Jessica Jones. I like Agents of SHIELD too, but my work schedule often prevents me from watching. Same with Agent Carter, which I like but am never home to watch.

I LOVE Gotham.  I know some Batman purists that don't like the changes they've made to the story, but eh, no big deal.  Yeah alldat, that Joker character was great and I was shocked they killed him, but it seems they were making him an inspiration for others.  I loved seeing Ed Nygma make the switch, and Penguin is great!  I like the relationship they have between Selina Kyle and Bruce Wayne.  I liked Barbara and Jim, and I'm not sure I trust the M.E. he's with now.  Just that line Barbara threw in about her knowing stuff that she shouldn't have.

I also enjoy Agents of SHIELD--good characters, nice blend of humor and action.

I used to do Arrow, but it kind of lost me in the second season when he decided that he needed to not kill bad guys in order to honor Tommy.  I mean, I'm ok with the not killing people part, but by making that a significant part of the character to the point that you use it in the show's intro just really seemed silly.  Plus I don't really care for the actor who plays Oliver.  Doesn't really seem to have the depth I would expect from someone who has gone through all he has.

I like Agent Carter, but there were times it seemed kinda slow, and honestly, I'd rather see it as a summer series than a few weeks in the winter to delay the return of SHIELD.

I really like Supergirl too, although there are some parts that truly annoy me (like a Martian named "John Jones"--seriously?)

I've been trying to keep up, but there is so much, that I am trailing behind. Here is what I watch and my thoughts:

AoS: Love it. I will say that every year, it takes a while to get going. About half of the season seems like unrelated little stories, but in the second half they bring them all together and it gets REALLY good. The last few episodes have been great.

Agent Carter: Love this one. Has a different vibe. Was happy to see them starting to tie in with the MCU on this season.

Daredevil: Liked it, but wasn't too crazy about the level of violence, but that is my tastes.

The Flash: This is more my speed. I like the humor and stories in this show.

Legends of Tomorrow: Absolutely love this. I am hoping they keep up the feel of the show, as it is much more "comic bookey" to me. Not to thrilled about where they will go with the "lesbian" character.

The Arrow: I didn't like the pilot episode, so I sat on the sidelines with this show. Once I got into the Flash, I decided to give it a try. I like it, but I am WAY behind on it, and from the Flash and LoT, I know there is a bunch of stuff I have missed. Not sure I will ever catch up as I am maxing out my TV time.

Supergirl: This is similar to The Flash. So far we are diggin it.

I tried getting into Daredevil, but i couldnt, mainly because his rogue's gallery is mostly mobsters and such, and i prefer more "colorful" villains (same reason i didnt really fall in love with Gotham). Hopefully the upcoming Netflix Iron Fist series will have better villains.

Despite having seen every movie in the MCU, I've never watched Agents of Shield. When it was first advertised, I thought the premise of Agent Coulson being alive was such nonsense that I had no interest in it. Maybe I should give it a chance sometime based on all the recommendations here. 

Arrow is one of my favorite shows though. I really enjoy all the plot twists, the character progressions, and the way small details from early seasons become significant later on. 

That led me to watch The Flash since he was originally introduced during a guest appearance. At times, it's a little too sci-fi for my usual tastes, but the characters and the humor still make it well worth watching.

For me, the jury is still out on Legends of Tomorrow. I had high hopes for it since the cast is primarily composed of characters previously established in the aforementioned shows, but the pilot was honestly a bit underwhelming to me. I'll still certainly give it a chance to get rolling as the season progresses though. I think it has the potential to be pretty entertaining.

My problem with Gotham is it seemed like a lot of name dropping. It didnt do anything for me except bore me, I saw about half of the first season.

Agents of Shield I think I saw about 4 episodes it did nothing for me.

I used to do Arrow, but it kind of lost me in the second season when he decided that he needed to not kill bad guys in order to honor Tommy.  I mean, I'm ok with the not killing people part, but by making that a significant part of the character to the point that you use it in the show's intro just really seemed silly.  Plus I don't really care for the actor who plays Oliver.  Doesn't really seem to have the depth I would expect from someone who has gone through all he has.

You gotta see the third season it really picks up IMO

esser known movies featuring Marvel characters. Who's seen them?

Elektra
Daredevil
Captain America - 1979 movie
Captain America II: Death Too Soon - 1979 movie sequel
Captain America - 1990 movie
Fantastic Four - 1994 movie

Saw Elektra, Daredevil and The Punisher (with Dolph Lundgren)

I didnt know they released a FF movie in 94 I know in the mid 90s there was talk of doing one but it was never released. I had a chance to buy a bootleg copy at a Comic Con in NYC in 1995

Also love  The Crow , Judge Dredd (with stallone), and Tank Girl (all based off comics)

I've seen Daredevil and Captain America 90 in full (daredevil isnt really that bad as people say, and Colin Farell steals the show as Bullseye, but CA is pretty bad). I've seen parts of Elektra but never the full movie, and i havent seen the others (although i did see Spoony's review of the Captain America 70s movies, they basically have very little to do with Captain America to be perfectly honest).

I don't trust the new M.E. either.  She seems to be attracted to Jim more as he gets darker.  I think that she is a plant of one of the crime families or by Penguin himself.  I don't believe that she is just a girlfriend for Gordon.  Besides, if they go with canon, he will have to marry Barbara and have a daughter named Barbara who will later become Batgirl and then Oracle of the Birds Of Prey.

In which case Barbara would have to not really be dead either.  Not that death is a real obstacle to tv writers.  I didn't realize Barbara was Jim's wife's name too.  I just thought it was an odd turn that they made his daughter into his lover.

On the show, Barbara is never said to be dead.  She did fall and could have died, but the last time she is mentioned it is only stated that she is in critical condition.  Getting her back in other episodes could be easier than you think.  Now, I DO think that Fish Mooney is dead.

I watch way too many shows.  The Flash?  Yep, love it.  The Arrow?  Kill Laurel and we got ourselves a show.  Daredevil?  YES!  I will be waiting until summer to watch it, I presume, but yeah, the first season was awesome and now Elektra and The Punisher from the people who brought The Man with No Fear to the screen?  YES!  Jessica Jones?  Too much nudity and sex, but the development was great and the villain was, hands down, one of the best super villains in any TV show recently.  I'm looking forward to Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and, of course, The Defenders.  My guess is Black Lightning will have something to do with this.  Agents of SHIELD?  Yeah, that's legit.  I love the Inhumans.  I read most of their comics and they were just great.  Agent Carter?  Looks good, but I haven't really watched it.  
And the movies!  Oh man, oh man!  There are so many interesting ones coming out.  I cannot wait!

Ha! Great thread but I am going to date myself here. I LOVED The Incredible Hulk and Spiderman. I still love the Hulk to this day and own the DVD's. Bill Bixby was great on the show and I have always loved Lou in the role of the Hulk. Because of it, the animated CGI Hulk was just never impressive to me. 

Someone at work let me borrow some VHS tapes of Spiderman a couple of years ago and i converted them over to DVD for him and myself.

Check out this theme, this is sooooo 70's! The show was a little slow moving but I loved it when I was a kid.

About 3 weeks ago, we started watching the original Batman. It was a 15 part serial that debuted in 1943. We've really been enjoying it. If you haven't seen it yet, but claim to be a Batman fan, then you are missing out.

And i have never seen this but I noticed it on MeTV last week so I recorded it. Still haven't watched it yet.



When I was a little kid I remember watching Superman. My dad told me that he had died, that he was shot. I didn't understand and I told him there is no way Superman could be shot. He tried to explain to me that it was an actor not the real Superman.

I have seen the 1949 one not the 43 one, loved how similar it was to The Lone Ranger

Yep. I've said for years that The Lone Ranger was the Batman of the Old West.

EDIT: And Zorro too. There are so many similarities between the three characters.

That article was at CNN.com this morning.

Joel Schumacher apologizes for 'Batman & Robin'

I think the reference to the nipples on the costumes is funny, particularly since I don't notice the nipples so much as the fact that Robin's pecs are so over-developed they look more like "man boobs."

For all it's failures, I still enjoy "Batman & Robin" quite a bit. I also really like "Batman Forever". Perhaps it's the color schemes used, or the Batman credit card which, when pulled out, the audience heard a cash register jingle. It was a unique blend of color, sound, campiness, and action.
