I wonder when the creative team behind Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. realized they were badly in need of a course correction. After a pilot that glowed with promise, the series stumbled with a series of strangely discordant episodes. There was maddeningly generic "0-8-4," which felt like a lost episode of Burn Notice. There was the pulpy "The Asset," which introduced a comic-book supervillain who hasn't reared his electrified head since the episode's stinger. There was "Girl in the Flower Dress," which failed to make Skye's betrayal have any real emotional resonance, and failed to make Project Centipede an actual threat. Reviews were bad, ratings were dropping, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was looking like it would go down in history as a missed opportunity — an oddity that tried on a different hat every week because it could never figure out which hat suited it best.And then things turned around with "Fzzt, »

USA network had a pretty great run as a basic cable channel in the early 90s, and then for about a decade it lapsed and faded into the background as one of those channels where shows with enough episodes for syndication found new life in reruns. And then they started to develop their own programming again, and it’s doubtful that after the success of Burn Notice and now White Collar that the network will ever be the same again. With Burn Notice having just finished its run in an impressive fashion that managed to continually come up with sufficiently different arcs for each season, White Collar now stands as the channel’s banner show, and if the fourth season is any indication, they’ve got something that can easily run for another 4 seasons and retain its charm.

It’s about time Jason O’Mara found himself a new series to star in, if only because I hate to see the guy struggle to get a steady paying job. I have to admit, I don’t particularly enjoy O’Mara as an actor, but that could be down to the shows he’s been a part of in the last few years. The third time’s the charm, or so they say, so let’s hope O’Mara joining USA Network is a sign of good things to come. It doesn’t hurt that the new drama pilot he’s starring in comes from Burn Notice creator Matt Nix.
According to THR, O’Mara will be playing disillusioned suburban ER Dr. John Ellis in Nix’s Complications. Ellis’ life takes a drastic turn after being involved in a gang shooting and is forced to explore what a doctor »

NBC has ordered four more scripts of Sean Saves the World. That indicates the network may end up ordering more episodes. I don’t know if I’m cheering for that to happen or not.
Alexis Denisof has joined the MTV drama pilot Finding Carter, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series focuses on a teen girl who learns she was abducted as a child and suddenly finds herself adjusting to live with the family she never knew. Denisof will play her father, a novelist whose only success was a true crime novel based on how he dealt with his daughter being kidnapped. In the meantime, we’re waiting for him to reunite with Angel producer David Greenwalt on Grimm.
