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...

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...

Grant Ward planning his escape - Agents Of SHIELD S2Ep6 A Fractured House Review

Agents Of SHIELD S2Ep6 A Fractured House Review

Since the beginning of Agents of SHIELD’s second season the question of whether government organizations would hunt down SHIELD has been mentioned. Certainly General Talbot appeared keen to do so but if anything his attempts were only half-hearted, in fact he seems to have built up a rapport with Coulson over their mutual enemy HYDRA. In this weeks episode, A Fractured House, HYDRA commits a false flag attack on the UN in retaliation over last weeks events. Though Talbot appears skeptical...

Coulson visits Simmons - Agents of SHIELD S2Ep3 Making Friends and Influencing People Review

Agents of SHIELD S2Ep3 Making Friends and Influencing People Review

This week’s episode of Agents of SHIELD is entitled ‘Making Friends and Influencing People’ but a better title might have been ‘What Simmons did’. Ever since the season premier two weeks ago fans have been near irate about the sudden disappearance of Elizabeth Henstridge‘s character Jemma Simmons. Some saw it is a prelude to write her character out of the show along with Fitz. Simmons has never been my favorite character, with both her and Fitz there was something too arrogant in...

Agents of SHIELD S2Ep2 Heavy Is the Head Review

Agents of SHIELD is back on TV to try and hold the banner for Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. Season 1 received mixed reviews but there was potential for improvement. So far with two episodes into its second season I have little to complain about, though the show does try a bit hard and sometimes comes off as melodramatic. Originally season 2’s cast was to be enlarged by Lucy Lawless but officially her character Hartley died at the end of the previous...

Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Trailer and Preview - Ex-Agent Ward (Brett Dalton)

Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Trailer and Preview

Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Trailer and Preview Agents of SHIELD was one of last year’s most controversial new TV to air. It wasn’t controversial because of any graphic violence or nudity but because many fans felt let down by the hype. I was one of them. During the first few episodes I was easily distracted by the California setting, the lame plot and the lead characters who acted like jerks. Slowly, with many hiccups, the season improved until the moment...

The second season of Agents of SHIELD has been filming since July.

Rumor has it is Kyle will be playing the...

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD Slowly the news is starting to trickle in about the second season of Agents of SHIELD. The show is scheduled to premiere on September 23, 2014. I think most people interested can be split into two groups. The first group want to see more of the Marvel Universe because they are fans. While the second want to see if the show will be cancelled. Despite some good reviews during the latter episodes the ratings barely...

Preview of Agents of SHIELD Season 1 Finale

Yesterday we finally got the news that ABC’s Agents of SHIELD has been renewed for a second season. Half way during its first season it was touch and go as the ratings kept dropping. They finally stabilized at 5.5 million viewers watching on TV with a total 9 million viewers including those using DVR. That is by no means spectacular but ABC seems to have few options. Luckily, the quality of the show has improved considerably. I recently had time to watch...

Agents of SHIELD S1Ep21 Ragtag Review

Next week we will see the last episode of season 1 of Agents of SHIELD. Many fans, me included, are crossing their fingers and hoping the show will not be cancelled. I am hopeful, the ratings have stabilized and have even seen a slight rise since the start of the Hydra Uprising storyline. The show seems to have found solid footing with its characters as well, something that was lacking during the first ten episodes. With all the buzz surrounding Captain America 2...

Agents of SHIELD S1Ep20 Nothing Personal Review

It is a strange sensation to actually look forward to a new episode of Agents of SHIELD. During the first ten episodes of this season that rarely happened. The show has improved considerably and I am actually sad that after this weeks episode there are only two until the season is concluded. This week sees the return of Cobie Smulders as former agent Maria Hill. You may remember from the movie Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier that she actively voted for SHIELD to...

Agents of SHIELD S1Ep19 The Only Light in the Darkness Review

Agents of SHIELD has finally managed to get itself into higher gear with the Captain America story tie-in. Ever since episode 17 ‘Turn, turn, turn’ fans have been casually positive about what they perceive as a reboot. Before the tie-in I had an opportunity to rewatch all the episodes and I must say that I found some of my own criticism of the show unfounded. There are many subtle points I missed the first time watching and the writing staff deserve more credit. That said,...

The last two days have ben kind of hell for me as sadly my laptop decided that it was time to keel over. My old laptop is dead, long live my new laptop. Anyway, as such I had no way to write reviews of either Person of Interest, Agents of SHIELD and Revolution. So I will give a short recap to convince you to watch those episodes regardless. Person of Interest; Vigilance finally manage to get ahead of the curve by...
