On this episode of Tosche Station Radio, it’s a look Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and other television pilots!

Kicking off the show, the hosts discuss what’s New on the Blog. It was Razor’s Edge release week, so we’ve got our usual Go/No-Go spoiler-free take on whether you should buy the book or not, a review from Bria, and a look at how Martha Wells’ use of Leia differs from Brian Wood’s interpretation in the Star Wars comic. Bria also reviewed the latest issue of Star Wars Legacy.

In Fixer’s Flash, both the hosts got in on the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D viewing party. There was also a day at the Disney parks crammed in there somewhere.

Deak’s Dirt starts with the usual: Episode VII casting rumors. There was a Wookiee casting call, rumors of David Oyelowo being cast in both Episode VII and Rebels, and more rumors about the main Rebels voice cast. And even more we don’t have the time or gumption to mention. Dark Horse announced that a new comic series will continue the story of Firefly, picking up where Serenity left off. As we previously discussed, Razor’s Edge released this week. We’ll be doing a roundtable discussion within the next few weeks (once Nanci gets off her butt and reads the book). Up next is JW Rinzler’s The Making of Return of the Jedi out on October 1. Jennifer Heddle announced on Twitter that there will be a sequel to William Shakespeare’s Star Wars, titled The Empire Striketh Back.

This week on Camie’s Concerns, Wrong Opinions About Movies’ host Alli joins us to talk television pilots. The discussion starts with a look at Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and then dives into other pilots that may have been more or less effective.
