    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 […]

    Joss Whedon Vs. Phil Coulson

    This morning I read a recent Q&A Joss Whedon @josswhedon did with Dana Schwartz over at mental floss and I have to say some of his answers really raised my eye brows here and there. DS: People don’t really stay dead in Marvel movies. I think we’ve had to deal with Loki dying four, five, […]

    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 […]
