Agents of SHIELD - Coulson being resurrected

Agents of SHIELD S1Ep11 ‘The Magical Place’ Review

Finally, after seeing agent Coulson die in the 2012 movie The Avengers viewers found out how me was resurrected. Strangely enough it didn’t really seem that it was the most important thing of the episode. Instead what Coulson saw as his betrayal by SHIELD for ruining his relationship as well as Nick Fury’s unethical decision to bring him back was far more at the forefront. Ultimately it came down to very advanced technology that allowed agent Coulson to be back, but the consequences are as of yet unknown. Agents of SHIELD may have dodged a bullet by bring Coulson back in what I think...

Preview of 2014 Science-Fiction TV shows!

As the year 2013 has come to a close it is time to make up the balance and see what the year has meant for Science Fiction on TV. I will also be giving a preview of the Sci-Fi shows that will make their return or début during 2014. After a cursory view of the dates listed below you will also see that many shows will be back during the course of next week. I won’t be reviewing them all but I’ll cherry pick the best. Continuum 2013 saw the return of Simon Barry’s Continuum starring Rachel Nichols as time traveler Kiera...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D S1Ep10 ‘The Bridge’ Review

Continuity One thing that irritates me beyond measure on a lot of procedural shows such as Person of Interest, Elementary and Haven is that characters from a particular episode rarely return. PoI in particular has a gift for making characters interesting enough to care about in just 43 minutes. However, besides a handful we never see them back. Agents of SHIELD seems to take a similar stance but this week we are re-introduced to the protagonist/antagonist Mike Peterson from the shows Pilot. Mike as you may remember, tried to be a superhero but sadly came under the influence of Centipede...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D S1Ep10 ‘The Bridge’ Preview!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D has aired its first nine episodes so far. Fans were initially hesitant to embrace the new show. Common complaints were that it was either campy or had a tendency to ‘jump the shark’ too often. After 4 or 5 episodes the show changed for the better with introducing characters arcs for all the principal cast members and raising the stakes through more effective drama. In my opinion the show improved across the board. Though the fact that it played in some mirror universe that didn’t seem connected to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe made it feel a bit lost. Sure...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S1Ep7 ‘The Hub’ Review!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is back with the episode ‘The Hub’. I must say that the shows hype is starting to diminish just when its quality is picking up. The previous two episode were just fantastic as two high quality standalone stories. However, fans were left irritated with the lack of knowledge about the wider universe of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. This episode corrects some of that by introducing the Hub, which is essentially S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters. In ‘The Hub’ Fitz and Ward are forced to team up for a solo mission behind enemy lines in the Caucasus as they need to disarm one of...

Sleepy Hollow - Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane & Nicole Beharie as Abbie Mills

Whats wrong with TV these days?

This week was hardly a good week for TV. It was worse than last week which itself was already mediocre. It can be that we are spoiled with too many good TV shows and we are expecting to be confronted with cliffhangers and denouements every episode. It does seem that after the initial excitement of new TV-series and seasons we have entered a bit of a rut. That said, some new shows such as Sleepy Hollow will need to try hard to keep viewers interested because it almost seems ripe for cancellation. Below is a list of TV-shows that I think need some rework. Strangely enough...

Clark Gregg as agent Coulson - Agents of SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD ‘Pilot’ Review!

One of the first things I was wondering about at the start of the pilot of ‘Agents of SHIELD’ was which character the show would focus on. Sure, agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) has certainly gotten most of the fans attention but it became clear quite quickly that an aura of mystery would surround him and his resurrection for a very long time. Instead we have an ensemble of other characters such as agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), a former black ops specialist who seems to act as the character that the audience can relate to and so stay vested in the show. On the other...

Science-fiction & Fantasy fall 2013 TV schedule!

Haven. The first episode of Haven had already aired on the 13th of September. It was a good episode though it did have twists and turns that kind of destroyed the suspense. the shows creators seem to have taken up on certain criticism about the women in the show. Not only is Kate Kelton’s character Jordan not dead they have introduced a new female lead as well (Emma Lahana as Jennifer Mason). About Jordan, it is painfully clear she will be some sort of villain during this season, and I mean it… painfully… Person of Interest. Despite season 2 of Person of Interest...
