Weekly Roundup: Oct. 26 – Nov. 1

Another week, another rundown of the shows we’ve tracked over the past week and how they did on the Bechdel Test and Mako Mori Test. We have fewer updates this time as several shows were preempted by some sort of sportsball tournament.

Just kidding. We know what baseball is. Congratulations to the Royals.

For the week of Monday, Oct. 26 – Sunday, Nov. 1:

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Fails Bechdel, Passes Mako Mori
