    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 […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: … YE WHO ENTER HERE (S2E09)

    One good thing about Agents of SHIELD is that it isn’t afraid to change.  In the next to last episode before the winter break (and start of Marvel’s Agent Carter), Ye Who Enter Here didn’t waste any time with the whole Hidden City plotline – unlike Season 1!  This is quite refreshing as while the carving on […]

    Who you really are – Agents of SHIELD

    Filler Hmmm – I have to be honest I was really looking forward to this episode as unlike some other reviewers I really enjoyed last weeks one and Lady Sif is always badass and cool – however I have to be honest … I was somewhat disappointed as this episode felt like nothing more than […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: FACE MY ENEMY (S2E04)

    Opening: Spy vs. spy escapades between HYDRA and Shield appears to be what will be driving this season.  The question I have is – are we going to be delivered the heady results we had in the opening 2-parter, or are we going to slip into more mundane, if not cheesy spy tropes and clichés […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: SHADOWS (S2E01)

    Opening: Agents of Shield finally came together by the end of Season 1 and we were treated to a rousing conclusion that served to bring us into the Coulson era.  So, how has this all been going over the intervening months?  The opening episode of season does fill us in, but not before offering another […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: HEAVY IS THE HEAD (S2E02)

    Opening: Season two started strong, with an excellent action episode, first of a two-parter that brought the series right up to date months after the season 1 finale.  The world and character building from season one seems to have paid off, while the writing and acting is top form.  What’s next?  Basically, part 2 of […]

    One of Us – Agents of Shield

    Confusion, concern and questions So is Skye’s dad (Cal – Kyle MacLachlan) the big bad of the latter half of the season or not?  We’re only two episodes in, but it seems that he’s been sent to the great big dumpster in the sky just like HYDRA was in the last episode. I guess if the […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: THE WRITING ON THE WALL (S2E07)

    Opening: Well, last episode is a lot to follow, especially since the end tag promised that we’d get to know a lot more about the alien map.  But at this point I think I can trust the show to balance things off well with the likely manhunt for Ward.  Am I right?  Let’s take a […]

    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 […]
