USE THIS SCHIELD

The Marvel Cinematic Universe and its cohesion with television and film has its fine line, sure. But it’s also very impressive in how it manages to represent their coexistence effectively. Whether it’s making a TV star out of Agent Coulson, who was once just relegated to cameos, or dropping Sif or Maria Hill into episodes of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, we’re always reminded that the worlds do collide in harmony. Well, if it ain’t broke, don’t beat it with an Infinity Stone, I always say. And because Marvel listens to me (huh??) let’s be prepared for an interesting appearance in the new season of ‘Agents.’ And by interesting, I mean retro. If you guessed Captain America, you’d be wrong. Close…but wrong. (more…)

“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…)
