Agents Of SHIELD (S4E17): “Identity and Change”

Review: The agents of, uh, S.H.I.E.L.D. face a daunting obstacle in the homestretch of their fourth season, with a whole new reality created to manipulate their lives and turn them against each other. This is happening because a LMD decided to take control from her creators, taking control of destiny and that destiny came a…

Agents Of SHIELD (S04E16): “What If…”

Review: One chapter of “Agents of SHIELD” ends while another begins in “What If…”, the first episode in the show’s “Agents of Hydra” saga, that effectively breathes new life into the show while honoring its storied past. Again, Hydra plays a part in another of this show’s game changers and there are plenty of call…

Agents of SHIELD (S04E01) “The Ghost”

Review: It has taken three season, the third season being the best, but “Agents of SHIELD” has finally arrived as its own entity of the MCU. The MCU is full of independent characters taking journeys to define themselves and what kind of heroes they will become before interacting with other characters, until “SHIELD” arrived. With…

Agents of SHIELD (S03E21-22) “Absolution/Ascension”

In and of itself, the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” finale was just as good as every other episode. However, it was time to break away from the trends of earlier episodes considering that this was pay off to three years of story and a trilogy, something the MCU loves. If anything, this finale should have tried…

Agents of SHIELD (S3E11): “Bouncing Back”

Review: “This can’t be easy” Was it just me, or was ‘Bouncing Back’ an underwhelming start to the second half of ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Season 3? After a lacklustre mid-season finale, ‘AoS’ needed something special to regain the footing it lost after ‘Closure.’ This episode, unfortunately, was not it. It was by the numbers ‘AoS.’…

Agents of SHIELD (S3E10): “Maveth”

Review: “Why don’t you shut the hell up?” ‘Agents of SHIELD’ mid-season finale was something of a letdown. ‘Closure’ left the door open for a spectacular episode (maybe ‘Closure’ should have been the mid-season finale?), but ‘Maveth’ was full of predictability. It tied up some plot threads and left others open for further resolution. But…

Agents of SHIELD (S3E9): “Closure”

Review: “I’m glad we’re finally having burgers” After last week’s excellent episode, Agents of SHIELD followed that up with yet another excellent episode. Instead of dropping the ball and having a slower paced outing to follow the big twist from “Many Heads, One Tale,” “Closure” shot out of the gates at lightning pace and barely…

Agents of SHIELD (S3E8): “Many Heads, One Tale”

Review: “You should be thanking me” Was it just me, or was this one of the best episodes of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ so far? Sure, Season 3 has already been full of twists and turns, but in ‘Many Heads, One Tale’ the twist felt like it had been coming for a long time. Remember when…
