On Sunday night during the season finale of ‘Once Upon a Time’, Marvel gave us our first look at Joss Whedon and Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ TV series. It was a quick thirty seconds, but it definitely wet my appetite for what’s to come. Now, ABC has released a full three minute trailer for the series, which takes us into what happens after the events of ‘The Avengers’. The best part about all of this, other than that the show looks great, is that Coulson lives again. Clark Gregg returns as the fan favorite character. Just how, we don’t know yet, but knowing Nick Fury is a the master of lies, it doesn’t seem farfetched that he might have faked the death of his right hand man just to get The Avengers to assemble. This is all speculation on my part, but I could definitely see it playing out that way.
Are you excited for ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’? Let me know in the comments below, only here at Chip and Company, and hit the jump to check out the trailer for the series, that will air on Tuesday nights at 8pm on ABC.

It’s time to revisit everyone’s favorite toys again in a new Halloween special on ABC this October. Pixar and ABC have teamed up to bring us ‘Toy Story of Terror’, a new ‘Toy Story’ short film, which sees the toys ending up at a creepy hotel in the middle of a roadtrip with Bonnie. When one of the toys goes missing, the rest are left with the mystery to figure out what has happened to their missing friend, and how to make sure it doesn’t happen to them as well. The shorts sees the return of familiar faces Buzz, Woody, Rex, Mr. Potato Head, and Jessie, with Jessie taking center stage this time around. Producer Galyn Susman told TV guide why they chose to make Jessie front in center this time around:
“We’ve gotten to see a lot of development in Woody and in Buzz and we felt it was Jesse’s turn to really show some growth.”
In Victorian England, the young and beautiful Alice (Sophie Lowe) tells a tale of a strange new land that exists on the other side of a rabbit hole. An invisible cat, a hookah smoking caterpillar and playing cards that talk are just some of the fantastic things she’s seen during this impossible adventure. Surely this troubled girl must be insane and her doctors aim to cure her with a treatment that will make her forget everything. Alice seems ready to put it all behind her, especially the painful memory of the genie she fell in love with and lost forever—the handsome and mysterious Cyrus (Peter Gadiot). But deep down Alice knows this world is real and just in the nick of time, the sardonic Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha) and the irrepressible White Rabbit (John Lithgow) arrive to save her from a doomed fate. Together, the trio will take a tumble down the rabbit hole to this Wonderland where nothing is impossible.

The ABC Studios TV series, ‘Perception’, starring Eric McCormack is coming to DVD on May 21, 2013. The show currently airs on TNT, and will start its second season on June 25, 2013, so the DVD is perfectly timed for the start of the new season. I haven’t seen the show yet, but it definitely has me intrigued. The plot follows Daniel, a brilliant, but off kilter, neuroscience professor who is hired by the FBI to assist cases they can’t crack. Daniel has an understanding of the human mind that no one else seems to, but his eccentric personality makes it hard for him to connect with those around him. His former student, Kate Moretti (Rachel Leigh Cook), is the only person willing to deal with Daniel’s personality, and is there to help him while he cracks the tough cases.
I get the distinct feeling this show is very Sherlock Holmes in feeling and tone, which makes me even more excited to watch it. I’m a huge fan of the character, it sounds like it’s been a major influence on this show, and the character. I could be wrong, so fans can definitely let me know, but I definitely get the idea when I read about it. This is definitely going to be very fun to watch, so I can’t wait to delve into it, and catching up before season 2 begins next month. Hit the jump for the full press release for the upcoming release, and check out the trailer for the first season. Also, keep an eye for our review in the next few weeks, to hear what I thought about the show. Are you a fan of ‘Perception’? Let me know in the comments below, only here at Chip and Company!
