Hartley, Gonzales, Bobbi and Mack await the onslaught. Agents of SHIELD S2Ep15 'One Door Closes' Review

Agents of SHIELD S2Ep15 ‘One Door Closes’ Review

Roughly a year ago the release of Captain America The Winter Soldier upended the story of Agents of SHIELD with the introduction of HYDRA. It was a move that probably saved the show as it suffered from a disjointed plotline and steadily lowering ratings. I personally agreed with some of the criticism but upon viewing the early episodes again I also think expectations were too high. Most reviewers have so far praised season 2, but for me it has been a...

Agents of SHIELD S2Ep13 ‘One Of Us’ Review

The second season of Agents of SHIELD has already seen a lot of action, but somehow it also feels slow. Fans have complained about the little character development or solid plot development. This weeks episode ‘One Of Us’ just like last week also suffers from these deficiencies but there does seem to be movement towards better balanced character development. For one thing the impact of Skye’s new super powers has had a pronounced effect on Coulson’s team. After Fitz tried...
