Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson Quake. Agents of SHIELD S3Ep15 Spacetime review.

Agents of SHIELD S3Ep15 Spacetime review!

Agents of SHIELD S3Ep15 Spacetime review This episode, Spacetime, puts our favorite Agents of SHIELD right in the thick of it. A restaurant owner calls the police in a blind panic after being touched by Charles Hinton, an Inhuman. This touch gives the owner a glimpse into his own future, and his death. Because the call to the police mentions Daisy and Hydra the owner is approached by SHIELD. However, the scene unfolds just as the man says it will be. Hydra swoops in, kills the restaurant owner and kidnaps Hinton. Just as Hinton is dragged in a cage into a helicopter...

Supergirl + The Flash crossover Worlds Finest Review

Supergirl + The Flash crossover Worlds Finest Review After watching Batman v Superman during the weekend the DC Universe is not done yet with tie-ins. Last evening Supergirl teamed up with The Flash on CBS. The result was an episode that made sense and was great fun, though it could not entirely hide the Supergirl silliness. A franchise crossover had been mulled for some time. At least two of Supergirl’s developers previously created Arrow and The Flash, both on The CW. I watch all three shows intermittently, they are not really sci-fi as much as they are fantasy/super-hero stuff. Yet, I do appreciate it when a good...

Closing the Zero matter rift. Agent Carter S2Ep10 Hollywood Ending Review.

Agent Carter S2Ep10 Hollywood Ending Review

Agent Carter S2Ep10 Hollywood Ending Review With Agents of SHIELD on its mid-season hiatus fans of Marvel have instead been shown Agent Carter. After a successful first season in which the show proofed it could be better than even SHIELD expectations were high for its new season. It is difficult to say whether Agent Carter has succeeded. In many ways the story, now set in L.A., was even darker than its first. Yet. the drama was also too often interrupted by silliness masquerading as humor. Too often the sexism of the 40’s made way for the juvenile antics of Howard...

Agents of SHIELD mid-season finale Maveth review!

Agents of SHIELD mid-season finale Maveth review! The mid-season finale of Agents of SHIELD from yesterday evening took me by surprise. From the promo it wasn’t hard to guess what the episode was about. Except for the needless plot involving Andrew/Lash it was a hell of a lot better executed than I thought it would be. The showdown between Ward and Coulson may have ended in a win for Coulson, but the ending leaves Ward in the game. Sort of. Agents of SHIELD will be back early in the spring for the second half of season 3. Agent Carter will be back...

Agents of SHIELD S3Ep2 Purpose in the Machine Review

An article on Blastr.com went into detail about how the new season of Agents of SHIELD will transform the series for the better. Certainly after two episodes I agree it has managed an incredible turn around. So much so that I remain skeptical if Marvel is doing the right thing releasing even more shows on Netflix. The teaser trailer for Jessica Jones released today certainly did not convince many people. But we are here for the second episode of AoS’s third season. I hope you will enjoy the review, below, that I wrote. Agents of SHIELD S3Ep2 Purpose in the Machine Review...

Agents of SHIELD S3Ep1 Laws of Nature Review

It has been just over 3 months since the second season of Agents of SHIELD ended. The creative staff behind the show, Joss Whedon included, have yet again tinkered with the format in the hopes of improving ratings. Considering the second was an improvement over the first we can only hope the third season will be even better. Agents of SHIELD S3Ep1 Laws of Nature Review In terms of the story the third season continues about 3 months after the finale. SHIELD is busy dealing with the release of the compound that turns people into dangerous Inhuman’s. Coulson and his team...

Skye new Quake uniform. Agents of SHIELD Season 3 Preview

Agents of SHIELD Season 3 Preview – Chloe Bennett’s revamp of Quake is seriously cool!

In a week and a half ABCs Agents of SHIELD season 3 will air. With ratings only stabilizing around an uncomfortable 7 million the show has to innovate to survive. After a few teasers we now have a trailer for an extended Agents of SHIELD Season 3 Preview. Agents of SHIELD Season 3 Preview Agents of SHIELD already made a number of improvements during its second season. There was more emphasize on serialized stories while the procedurals were better interwoven. Agents of SHIELD also for the first time managed to set the background mythology itself independent of the Marvel Cinematic Universe....

Chloe Bennet as Skye confronts her mother. Agents Of SHIELD Season 2 Finale Review.

Agents Of SHIELD Season 2 Finale Review

Agents of SHIELD has managed to survive through its second season. Despite the ratings having leveled off they are at dangerously low levels. The second season of the show tried to improve on the perceived shortcomings of the first season, but has only managed partly. The goofiness of season 1 has been replaced by subtle humor, but the bland characterization and often disjointed plots have only partly been remedied. Fans are wondering if Joss Whedon’s hands-off approach to production is to blame or Marvel’s insistence on not exploring darker angles to the story. I personally still want this show to further improve, but it...

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 mixed bag. HYDRA did not materialize as the great threat that I hoped it would be while Coulson and May have...

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 to hide her condition Simmons has come to distrust him. For May the difficulties in dealing with Skye has lead her...

Agents of SHIELD S2Ep11 Aftershocks Review

Now that Agents of SHIELD have returned from hiatus it is time to see what the damage is. With Mr. Whitehall dead HYDRA may be down but it isn’t out. Meanwhile SHIELD mourns over the death of agent Triplett who died because of contact to the alien device. While SHIELD deals with aftermath of this loss Coulson plans a strike on HYDRA to ensure it won’t grow another head. Agents of SHIELD S2Ep11 Aftershocks Review In the aftermath of events in the temple Simmons decides they need to bury the site underwater. Coulson agrees, but before they can act a...

Agent Carter S1Ep7 SNAFU Review. Hayley Atwell as agent Carter

Agent Carter S1Ep7 SNAFU Review

This weeks episode of Agent Carter, SNAFU, is the seventh of eight episode of the first season. I am sad to see the first season end so quickly but a quick pace of the show does have its appeal. In SNAFU both Carter (Hayley Atwell) and Jarvis are forced to take a back seat to the action after both have been arrested. Instead the episode concentrates on Thompson, Sousa and Dooley as they try to build a case against Carter. Their instincts lead them away from her into Leviathan’s deadly path which will have severe consequences for one of them. Agent Carter...

Agent Carter The Iron Ceiling Review. Leviathan girls turned into assassins

Agent Carter S1Ep5 The Iron Ceiling Review

After last weeks episode of Agent Carter, The Blitzkrieg Button, the show turned a corner. The mystery of the battle of Finow and the darker side of the war was brought forward. The silliness that occurred during the first few episodes lessened. Also more effort was placed on fleshing out secondary characters such as Roger Dooley (played by Shea Whigham) and Jack Thompson (played by Chad Michael Murray). Thompson is hard to like, but Dooley shows that he is not aloof of Peggy’s accomplishments or the possibility that Howard Stark is innocent. After this weeks episode of Agent Carter, The Iron Ceiling, there are...

Agent Carter Review – S1Ep4 The Blitzkrieg Button

Agent Carter is finally back after a two weeks absence with episode ‘The Blitzkrieg Button’. Hayley Atwell continues to shine as Peggy Carter. But slowly I am beginning to wonder what direction Agent Carter is taking. Allow me to argue what I think this show should do differently in this Agent Carter Review. Agent Carter Review – S1Ep4 The Blitzkrieg Button ‘The Blitzkrieg Button’ continues where ‘Time and Tide’ left off. SSR is still looking for Howard Stark and they have no idea that Peggy is helping him. Now that SSR has found a large cache of the weapons stolen...

Agent 33 twisted face - Agents of SHIELD S2Ep9 Ye Who Enter Here Review

Agents of SHIELD S2Ep9 Ye Who Enter Here Review

This week’s episode of Agents of SHIELD, “…Ye Who Enter Here”, is the prelude to mid-season finale set to air December 9th. While most other shows have already gone into their hiatus SHIELD goes on, and it is going strong. Gone are those murky episode from season 1 you just loved to hate. I read some other reviews of this episode on the web and I am astonished at some of the criticism. Most reviewers seem fixated on little quirks to judge the entire episode, not realizing it is in fact a bold attempt to set the stage for next...

Sunil Bakshi played by Simon Kassianides (For Coulson) - Agents of SHIELD The Writing on the Wall Review

Agents of SHIELD The Writing on the Wall Review

This weeks episode Agent Of SHIELD proves that the show can succeed if it dares to offer genuine character development through drama. As both Coulson and Ward are confronted by personal demons they show they are still the core two characters of SHIELD. For me ‘Writing on the Wall’ has been my favorite season episode so far and I must say Agent of SHIELD is becoming an appreciated show next to my Tuesday dose of Person Of Interest. As for this episode. I first discuss briefly what has happened in a summary and then I discuss the implications. Agents of SHIELD The Writing...
