After months of focus online from early development and through production, the live-action reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is finally inching towards a release later this Summer. Under the microscope of a very passionate fanbase, the new look of the heroes out of the sewer have been kept rather well under wraps.
But now, we get our first glimpse of the action-adventure in a teaser trailer that takes us deep into New York City, presents The Shredder, April and the size of our title characters.

FTTV Reviews…Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 1.22 “The Beginning of the End”
Here we are, at the end of the line for the first season. And all I can say is that thank God this show was renewed for another year because I would have been very disappointed if that would have been the series finale. While we got a lot of answers that we were hoping for, we didn’t exactly get the payoff we wanted on the bigger picture. But like I said, it was a season finale and not a series finale (thank God!) so there’s always next season and the season after that (at least we hope so, anyway!).
As always, my reviews have a lot of spoilers so please refrain from reading it until you’ve watched the episode.

FTTV Reviews…Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 1.21 “Ragtag”
It’s hard to believe that this twisted ride is coming to an end next week. With the penultimate episode of this freshman series done and over with, it’s hard to imagine what’s in store for fans in what’s being teased as a shocking season finale. As always, there are spoilers. Steer clear from this review until you have seen the episode. You have been warned.

FTTV Reviews…Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 1.20 “Nothing Personal”
We’re literally on the last leg of this roller coaster of a freshman season for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Every time we try to catch our breaths, the show takes another nose dive into all these twists and turns with the heart pounding action that continues to unfold on screen every week. There are going to be a lot of spoilers in this review. Consider yourself warned.
FTTV Reviews…Reign 1.19 “Toy Soldiers”
*WARNING* Full spoilers for this week’s episode follow. Read on at your own caution.
As the freshman period drama starts to wind down, The CW’s most surprising hit show continues to burn through story line after story line at a very rapid pace. Some might even say that it is going too fast and still not really delivering much of anything plot wise. This week’s episode features another time jump. This time around, an entire month has gone by since Francis locked Mary in a tower. For the audience, however, it’s only been a week. And we’re still upset about it. But we’re left feeling like they’re trying to tell us to just “get over it” with the way this episode starts.
FTTV Reviews…Castle 6.20 “That ’70s Show”
The 1970s are long gone – as is the days of disco – but during Monday night’s brand new episode of ABC’s Castle, back after a three week hiatus, polyester is back and so is murder. What did you think of the dynamic duo of Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) in full ’70s duds?
FTTV Reviews…Fargo 1.01 “The Crocodile’s Dilemma”
Throughout this television season, we’ve seen a number of hit films hit the small screen changed one way or another. While last month brought From Dusk Till Dawn and About A Boy, one of the most anticipated since its announcement early last Fall was FX’s limited series commitment to reinvent a Coen Brothers favorite in Fargo. As a highly impressive cast and a wave of teasers helped to drive buzz, whether or not the modern classic could be faithfully reimagined to television still had yet to be seen.
So, did the series premiere prove to present a promising introduction or a tribute that falls flat in the snow?
