    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Season 5) – ‘Fun and Games’

    This week’s episode gets off to an unexpected start, but we’ve grown to expect that in this space-set season, haven’t we? This time the digression is in service of introducing a new character, Flint (Coy Stewart). We meet Flint as a lowly scavenger trying to survive in the space station housing the remnants of humanity, […]

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Season 5) – ‘Rewind’

    True to its name, “Rewind” tracks back the story a good 74 years to pick up last season’s cliffhanger in the moments after everyone vanishes from the diner. Except for Fitz. Just a few moments after the team is grabbed, a military unit shows up and arrests S.H.I.E.L.D.’s lone remaining agent. He spends six months […]

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Season 5) – ‘A Life Earned’

    Daisy seems rather indifferent to the fact that she’s been captured by Kasius — much less that he also seems to be drawing a significant amount of blood from her. Though he still talks plainly, Kasius is clearly somewhat threatened by Daisy’s presence. Not just because she’s the so-called “Destroyer of Worlds,” but also because […]

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Season 5) – ‘A Life Spent’

    So here we are, one week on from that game-changing season premiere. Shortly after finally escaping the Framework, the agents were kidnapped and sent into space, where they soon learned they were also in the future. This was, of course, a dark dystopian future (is there any other kind these days?) where Daisy had somehow […]

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Season 5) – Orientation (parts 1 & 2)

    After a successful fourth season, the heroes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. return once again for their fifth season, this time promising a stark departure from the antics of the hellfire cyclist Ghost Rider and the demented artificial intelligence Aida. In the last season, the team dealt with their own inner demons in the “Matrix-like” program […]

    Reasons Why “Luke Cage” Feels Caged in Mediocrity

    Luke Cage, released September 30th as part of a long string of Marvel Cinematic Universe Netflix exclusives, has been met with many positive reviews, scoring a 79% metascore at Metacritic and 80% at imdb. But while many celebrated its unique contribution to the MCU (myself included), such as its music, predominantly black cast, and thematic […]

    Uprising – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (S4E3)

    On the night of its season premiere, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. scored 3.44 million viewers overall, up from it season three finale that raked in just 3.03 million. However, the second episode the season didn’t fare as well, with a score of just 2.95 million viewers. That said, this time last year ABC was struggling to […]

    ‘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 […]

    Emancipation – AOS S3E20

    ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Emancipation TV Show Review. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., season 3, episode 20, ‘Emancipation,’ was a shell game, meant to shake up Hive’s (Brett Dalton) sense of certainty, but it may have gone a touch too far, in how Coulson’s (Clark Gregg) gambit may have played to fans, and in conveying just how […]

    Captain America: Civil War

    The Avengers have faced some difficult opponents, either as a team or on their own: the Red Skull, Loki, the Mandarin, Ultron. However, in “Captain America: Civil War,” they face a new kind of enemy: each other. “Civil War” divides the Avengers, forcing them to align with either Iron Man or Captain America. Iron Man […]

    The Team

    Season 3 Episode 17: The Team ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ has so many twists and double-crosses this week that you’d almost swear it was a Shonda Rhimes show. I’m hyperventilating. Did that really just happen?! If this episode is any indication of the caliber of the finale, were in for a ride of epic proportions. Ok, […]
