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...

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...

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 The goofiness of season 1 has been replaced by subtle humor, but the bland characterization and often disjointed plots have only partly been remedied.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...

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...

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...

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...
