    How can they be LMD’s when they appeared years before the scientist (whose name totally escapes me at this point) started work on the project?

  2. Joey Padron says:

    Good news Patton Oswalt is coming back to the show! Can’t wait to find out what Koenigs brothers’s family secret is in the episode! New trailer for new season of Underground looks good.

  3. Steven says:

    Mary Kills People sounds like a good companion for UnReal.

  4. Chris says:

    I would rather have Bobbie and Hunter come back to S.H.I.E.L.D! I stopped watching the show when they were let go and cast in a spin-off pilot that wasn’t picked up to series! I they’ll come back for a few episodes (I’m aware Adrianne Palicki has been cast in the upcoming Fox sci-fi dramedy series “Orville”), maybe I’ll consider returning to watch the show!

  5. Michael says:

    Good to see Patton Oswalt back again. I was surprised when he popped up on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend last week.

    I dropped Agents of SHIELD because everything revolves around Inhumans since season 2b, but Sam and Billy are 2 reasons to watch ep 4×12. :-) :-) I hope the Koenigs are in more episodes.
