While a four month break between seasons can seem like a long time, at least fans of Agents don’t need to wait as long as fans of The Walking Dead or Game of Thrones. Of course, as this blog attests, fans of one are often fans of the others. Well then, good news: one of these shows is coming back with new episodes in less than a week’s time. This preview will contain some discussion of events from last season, so if you still aren’t all the way caught up, or are considering picking up this series in a marathon viewing session, don’t read past the break. And for those still on the fence: the beginning of Season 1 was fairly slow, but there is a payoff at the end. It wouldn’t be a Whedon (Jed, in this case) series if that weren’t the case.
