    ‘Agents of SHIELD’: The Darkhold

    In a not unsurprising fashion, SHIELD is once again the tie-in to an upcoming big-screen Movie Adaptation (namely Doctor Strange). The second episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gives us a foothold into the supernatural in more ways than one. First, we have Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes who told Daisy that he sold his soul to […]

    The Ghost – Agents of Shield

    Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is leaning hard on Ghost Rider joining in Season 4 as a hook to get people watching the show, so it makes sense that Gabriel Luna’s take on Robbie Reyes would be introduced right at the beginning of the premiere, “The Ghost.” It was the right choice not to force viewers […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: THE THINGS WE BURY (S2E08)

    Opening: Last episode was one of revelations. We found out what the map is to (sort of) and we get a hint of fugitive Ward’s next move (with his brother).  Season 2 has been excellent in general, so I was anticipating this episode eagerly, especially since it hinted that we’d get to see some more […]

    Scars – Agents of Shield

    No, no, no … this is not good.  Just finished watching this one (I know a bit late … sorry about that, was out of town) and I’ve got a hole in my stomach.  Basically, everything that could go wrong has gone wrong and while I managed to get to Avengers prior to watching this […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: A HEN IN THE WOLF HOUSE (S2E05)

    Opening: The last two episodes of SHIELD have slid a little bit from the opening pair, a little too formulaic, a little heavy in the foreshadowing, and trying a little too hard.  Will this episode buck the downward trend, or will it be a boost back up to how the first two worked?  There has been […]

    Love in the time of HYDRA – Agents of SHIELD

    In this weeks episode we had a couple of different storylines playing out simultaneously and while at first blush there isn’t too much correlation between them, by next week at least two of them will combine (quite spectacularly) and hopefully the third will also start to play a factor.  While we don’t really have any […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: A FRACTURED HOUSE (S2E06)

    Opening: Last episode’s excitement ended with the team all back together +1.  Skye’s dad also made a portentous offer to ally himself with HYDRA. Oh, and that +1, she happens to be both Mockingbird, Hunter’s ‘psycho’ ex-wife. So, are the sparks going to continue to fly this ep? Oh yeah… Summary:   We start this […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: WHAT THEY BECOME (S2E10)

    Its hard to believe that after last weeks episode, they will be able to keep the momentum going in Agents of Shield … but they’ve succeeded admirably!  While there are a few “wobbles” along the way, the mid-season finale ended with an appropriate cliffhanger and is an episode that will definitely keep me coming back […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD – BEGINNING OF THE END (S1E22)

    [WARNING: This story contains major spoilers from Tuesday’s season finale ofMarvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Read at your own risk!] This didn’t go the way I was expecting.  Not in a bad way, but just unexpected and interesting and I guess considering that Whedon‘s at the helm perhaps not really that surprising.  If you haven’t read […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD – RAGTAG (S1E21)

    OK, I know that in the beginning I wasn’t a huge fan – I mean lets be honest, it didn’t really seem to be going anywhere did it? – and there were parts in the middle where it seemed to lag also and was full of filler and fluff, but after the big Hydra reveal, […]
