    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, […]

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

    A Most wanted (Inhu)Man – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (S3E3) The president’s ATCU (Advanced Threat Containment Unit) begins hunting down inhumans across the country. Meanwhile, Simmons begins her rehabilitation after her extended stay on the alien world. While the title for “A Wanted (Inhu)man” referred to Lincoln, and his story was solid, the episode’s most notable […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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: … 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: 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 […]
