“Not agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., just agents of… nothing”

With last week’s episode showing that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. can hold the weight of being the MCU tie-in that we all wanted it to be, this episode asked the question of “Can they keep it up?”  While the answer to that may have been obvious to most viewers, we’ve definitely got an idea of what we can expect from here on out.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. went from the show everyone couldn’t wait to love, to one of the most disappointing endeavours in the history of television. Indeed, instant reaction to the show was so dire that Screen Rant published an article about how the series could be improved within days of the airing of the premiere episode. Of course, no one’s saying that the show is, or was, perfect, but one thing’s for sure, the fallout from Captain America: The Winter Soldier is surely going to change what it means to be an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. from here on out. Obviously, major spoilers are below. (more…)

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review- 16- End of The Beginning

We’re now on the last run of episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with no more scheduled breaks, and a story that will most definitely coincide with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Was it worth tuning in to see how the beginning of this so-so story ends? (more…)

Another ‘Angel’ Alum Coming to ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ as Coulson’s [SPOILER]

Part of the fun of Joss Whedon‘s adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing was seeing the Whedon repertory players – gathered from BuffyAngel, FireflyDollhouse and The Avengers – put on a Shakespeare play. Whedon breeds a lot of loyalty, and that’s extended to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. right from the start with J. August Richards in the role we’ve come to know as Deathlok, for example. Now comes news that one of Richards’ co-stars from Angel is joining the show, and they have a mysterious, and potentially spoilery, connection to Coulson’s past. (more…)

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review- 15 - Yes Men

“At least we’re in the dark together.”

This week on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we pick up right where we left off with last week’s after-credits scene. Lorelei is done with the newlywed groom that she stole from his bride, and is moving on to building her army. Hot on her trail, however, is the lovely Asgardian warrior Lady Sif, who’s come to Earth to bring the seducing sorceress back to their home planet for her crimes across the realms. (more…)

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review- 14- T.A.H.I.T.I.

“They scratch my paint, I’m gonna be pissed.”

While the last episode was one of the show’s best, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. hasn’t aired a new episode in a month. There’s still a question of whether or not the gap halted the show’s momentum, but was the introduction of two new agents and a guest starring spot from Bill Paxton enough to keep the ball rolling?

“Yep, vanished, which I might add, not easy.”

So, after another, seemingly random hiatus, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is back, and looking to maintain it’s run of actually somewhat meeting expectations! Did the break kill all of the momentum that they were finally starting to build, or is the show finally turning into something worth watching? (more…)

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review- 12- Seeds

“The time will come when you won’t make fun of me for that, you’ll be jealous. You’ll be jealous, wrinkly, old hags.”

The show starts with some surprisingly rebellious kids swimming at the S.H.I.E.L.D. Training Academy. When the pool suddenly freezes over, with the students narrowly escaping, S.H.I.E.L.D. finds some sort of high tech gadget was used in the attack. Naturally, Fitz, Simmons, Skye and Ward are called in to sort out the bad “seeds” of the academy, while Coulson and May tackle a lead on Skye’s past in Mexico City. (more…)
