    Hope the first batch of actors peaked your interest. Of course, not all of us will agree on these things but I think most , will at least reach some common ground. Let’s finish things off with the final installment. With plenty more superhero movies on the way, I look forward to adding to the […]

    S3E4 – Devils You Know (AoS)

    Missed one here – many apologies … read this one before you read 4722 although considering the context of that episode, it won’t really matter in the grand scheme of things!  Anyways if you recall at the end of the previous episode, Hunter had made a failed attempt on Wards life & Coulson has removed him […]

    “4,722 Hours” – Jemma Simmons is a BAMF (SHIELD S3E5)

    “4,722 Hours” makes it clear that, though she may not seem like the best candidate to survive on an alien planet, Jemma Simmons has some pretty mad skills.   When “4,722 Hours” began with the flashback to the scene where Simmons got pulled into the Monolith and taken to the other planet, I wondered “Wait, […]

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D – A Most wanted (Inhu)Man

    Artist Spotlight: Mike Mignola

    For this month’s artist spotlight I’m featuring the man responsible for creating Hellboy. Basically a character that helped to establish Dark Horse comics as a legitimate competitor  to DC and Marvel comics. Mike Mignola had already established himself as a unique talent in the comics industry prior to creating Hellboy. His stock was on the […]

    Purpose in the Machine – AOS S3E2

    OK, bit of a mixed bag this week as the impressive season opener did not really carry through in my opinion into week two.  While there was still quite a bit going on in this episode, the team was somewhat fractured dealing with all of the different responsibilities and goals that they needed to address. The […]

    Laws of Nature – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (S3E01)

    I take back everything bad I’ve ever said about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and their inability to show people with powers. While season one and two had a dearth of special-effects this season already has kicked off with a bang.  Of course effects by themselves generally aren’t enough you also need to have the underlying story […]

    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 […]

    Aftershocks

    And we’re back!  Marvels Agents of Shield returned with the bang yesterday to our screens and our hearts and while I for one was a definite fan of Agent Peggy Carter, Jarvis, Sousa and the gang at the SSR, I’m so very happy to have my favorite crime fighting/mystery solving group back on TV!  Please […]
