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...

Once Upon A Time Review of Darkness on the Edge of Town

With Haven on hiatus and Rick and the gang walking around Alexandria I thought it would be a good idea to try something new. This is my first Once Upon A Time Review. I have watched Once Upon A Time on an on/off basis for a while. Whenever Haven sucks, I’ll watch this show and vice versa. So far the first half of season 4 has been decent, strangely enough so was Haven. The addition of Elizabeth Mitchell felt special. Her depiction...

Agent Carter season finale review

The final episode of Agent Carter, Valediction, is over. Along with the previous episode, ‘Snafu’, they are best seen back-to-back. Hayley Atwell did not fail to convince me for 8 episodes that she was truly Agent Carter. It is sad the season was so brief. That said, the short duration did mean the story did not stall to fill up episodes. To think about all that has happened in the past 8 episode makes me hope there will be a...
