Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – Season 5 Episode 5

“Rewind” Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD goes back to the past to explore what Fitz got up to after the rest of his team were taken. Fitz being absent from the show this season has been a burning concern both in and out of universe. Other than a vague postcard promising that Fitz is on the…

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – Season 5 Episode 4

“A Life Earned” Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD continues to build the world of the dystopian future as the characters navigate their new surroundings in different ways. The previous episode ramped up the tension with Daisy’s capture and the rest of the team being on generally shaky footing after almost being sold out by Zev so…

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – Season 5 Episode 3

“A Life Spent” Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD continues its outer space mission with intrigue and further attempts to learn how they got there. So far this season has been building around the mystery of why the characters are in an Apocalyptic future where Earth is rubble outside the window. The “where” and “when” were solved…

Heroes Reborn – Season 1 Episode 13

“Project Reborn” Heroes Reborn ends its only season with a resolution of the solar flare story that has been teased throughout the season. I found myself a little confused by the structure of this episode as it robbed the story of any real urgency. We knew that the solar flare impact was imminent but it…

Heroes Reborn – Season 1 Episode 12

“Company Woman” We’re almost there folks, Heroes Reborn has one more episode to go and in theory all of the plot threads so far should be starting to pay off to deliver a conclusion. The reality is that they aren’t because the show has been hampered by really dull characters who largely don’t develop in any…

Heroes Reborn – Season 1 Episode 11

“Send in the Clones” Heroes Reborn returns for the final 3 episodes of the season and after watching this I think it really shouldn’t have bothered coming back. Things are still lurching towards what promises to be a fairly predictable endgame. I’ll confess that I completely forgot what the cliffhanger was and didn’t have the…

Heroes Reborn – Season 1 Episode 10

“11:53 to Odessa” Heroes Reborn gives audiences the final episode until January with further teases about Erica’s endgame and more meandering stories involving the massive cast of characters. As with any season of this show’s predecessor Heroes, the characters all start to come together in a common cause as the end of the season approaches….

Heroes Reborn – Season 1 Episode 9

“Sundae, Bloody Sundae” Heroes Reborn returns to the present and continues Tommy on his journey towards his destiny of saving the world. This episode was a vast improvement on last week as it confined the focus to only a few characters instead of trying to cram everyone into the same episode just because they exist….

Heroes Reborn – Season 1 Episode 8

“June 13th – Part Two” After a solid outing last week, Heroes Reborn returns to the mediocrity and frustration that it has unfortunately become associated with since the beginning of the series. This episode actually opens really well with an explanation of how Claire was able to die. It turns out that Nathan -or Tommy as we…

Heroes Reborn – Season 1 Episode 7

“June 13th – Part One” Heroes Reborn enters into the second half of the season and has another episode deliver some answers while replacing them with a whole new set of questions. The explosion at the Human-Evo summit on June 13th has been underpinning this entire season in one way or another so returning to that date…
