Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Season 7 Episode 3

“Alien Commies from the Future” Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. heads to 1955 and infiltrates Area 51 to prevent the Chronicoms from achieving their goals. Time travel storytelling is by its very nature difficult because you’re dealing with a concept that has been a big part of fiction for a long time meaning that people will have…

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Season 7 Episode 1

“The New Deal” Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. begins its final season with a prohibition era adventure, debates about changing the timeline and questions over the nature of life itself. That sounds like a lot for the first episode but it actually isn’t because everything is woven neatly through the characters and the narrative being presented…

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – Season 4 Episode 6

“The Good Samaritan” Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD reveals the origin of Robbie Reyes’ Ghost Rider as Lucy moves her plan to the next level. Origin stories are something we’ve all seen more than enough times to be tired of them and I wasn’t sure we really needed to see just how Robbie Reyes became Ghost…

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – Season 4 Episode 2

“Meet the New Boss” The new director makes his debut in Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD as Daisy continues to investigate the mysterious Robbie Reyes. I had avoided information about the new director up until seeing this episode. All I really knew was that someone had been cast but I chose not to look into who…

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – Season 3 Episode 20

“Emancipation” Captain America: Civil War infects Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD with the mandatory annual tie in that reminds us that the show is part of this shared universe. I don’t mean this in a negative sense because I actually thought that this was the best tie in that they’ve done on this show so far….

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – Season 3 Episode 10

“Maveth” Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD closes off 2015 by bringing all of the established stories so far this season to a head. For the most part this episode is really focused on telling the story that it has. The characters are all separated and broadly dealing with their own missions but it’s all in service…

On the D/L – Agents of SHIELD

Season 2 Episode 11 – “Aftershocks” Can you believe it’s been 3 months since Agents of SHIELD went on a break? Of course much of that time was spent showing Agent Carter and letting that miniseries conclude its run but it’s been a long time since we saw Skye burst from that cocoon back in…

On the D/L – Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

Season 2 Episode 8 – “The Things We Bury” Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D has our characters with a clear mission. They are all singularly focused on finding the mysterious city revealed to them in the previous episode which causes them to employ a variety of approaches to achieve their objective. There was a lot going on…

On the D/L – Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

Season 2 Episode 1 – “Shadows” Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D returns for a second season with some new characters and a new direction. The first season was considered problematic for a great many people because of the ill developed characters, uninteresting plots and often cringeworthy humour. As I said in my write-up of the first…
