    Yeah, all this stop/starting is annoying. I think this is why traditionally UK Broadcasters waited while January or even after the season finished in the US, so that there were no breaks in the UK run.

    Man, that just kills any momentum the series has. I wonder how many viewers they lose when they do this kind of on again, off again programming.

    Well the next break is for the Marvel Studios special, so that probably won't hurt the show too much. It should even have some previews of upcoming episodes.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    Lorelei just showed up in this month's Loki: Agent of Asgard.

    Unfortunately, she was overshadowed by a new red head who shows promise

    It's for a Marvel special, which hopefully would help. But imagine the appeal of actually having the two together in the same night (so those who want to see Age of Ultron sneak peeks will also watch the new AoS episode). Considering it's the week after Lady Siff, who hopefully will attract a few more viewers, it would be a shame to meet it with no knew episode once again.

    I was talking about that kind of on again, off again disjointed programming in general rather than this specific instance, but I'm glad there will at least be something Marvel-related in its place. Though I agree, it would have been better off pairing the special with a new episode of the show.

    Oh trust me, I agree completely in the abstract. I'm just holding out hope that, specifically this time, it won't be as detrimental as it has been in the past.

    Different topic, but here's a cool interview with the concept art artist for the show. It's really just clicking on the link to look at the pretty pictures.

    May called him "Felix"? I don't think so.

    They may not have mentioned his first name but Agent Blake has been announced. It wasn't like he didn't have a name at all.

    From F.Z.Z.T.:

    Blake is before Agents of SHIELD. He was in a one-shot. DEWLine was excited about him having a first name (hence mentioning that he has a first name :p).

    If that's her currency, Lorelei should know better than to pay up front....
