    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 […]

    Afterlife – AOS (S2E16)

    It’s strange but Afterlife felt so much like a return to old friends that it was uncanny!  I’ve mentioned in previous posts that it seemed silly how they keep on removing foes and friends at such a reckless pace but in Afterlife they actually seemed to bring some of them back!  We had Raina (or […]

    Ant-Man: Movie Review

    I must admit that when I heard Marvel was actually going forward with giving Ant-Man his own movie I was surprised. Sure, Ant-Man is cool but, really? His own movie? The casting of the movie didn’t make me any more excited for the movie either. Paul Rudd is pretty one note to me and fairly […]

    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, […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: RAINA’S FUTURE

    Well the long awaited day has almost arrived … AOS is coming back tomorrow!  While Agent Carter definitely helped to tide us over with some excellent episodes over the past 7 weeks, I’m sure that you were as eager for the return of Coulson and the Agents of Shield as I was.  So where were […]

    Agents of Shield – The moment when everyone gasped …

    Last weeks episode of Shield didn’t really give us any great shocks or surprises did it?  I mean we all knew that Skye was Daisy Johnson (Quake) … we all knew that Raina was something different, something new and we all knew that Tripp was dead.  What we didn’t know however was how the team […]
