It's upfronts week, which means that all the networks are lining up to debut their new shows to advertisers, and in general, it's looking like a much stronger season than the last few. Not everything looks great, obviously -- have you seen that trailer for "Sleepy Hollow?" Hoo, boy. But there's more than one show we'll be considering tuning in for, and that's more than we can say for the last few seasons of network television.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

It's upfronts week, which means that all the networks are lining up to debut their new shows to advertisers. In general it's looking like a much stronger season than the last few. Not everything looks great, obviously -- have you seen that trailer for "Sleepy Hollow?" Hoo, boy. But there's more than one show we'll be considering tuning in for, and that's more than we can say for the last few seasons of network television.

Top of the list for many, of course, will be "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D," ABC's spin-off from superhero megahit "The Avengers," which sees Clark Gregg's Agent Coulson resurrected, and leading some new characters, played by Ming-Na, Chloe Bennett, Iain De Caestecker, and others, to investigate various superheroic goings-on. We had a brief tease for the show debut yesterday, but with ABC's upfront taking place today, a more substantial chunk of footage has arrived.

Unfortunately, this writer's in the UK, and geo-blocked from watching it, so we have no idea what it looks like. If it's just Joss Whedon flipping off the camera, we can only apologize. Anyway, watch the video below (if you're in the US, at least), and let us know what it looks like, and if you'll be tuning in when the show starts airing at 8pm Tuesdays from the fall. And hey, doesn't that Andy Samberg cop sitcom look like fun?
