Now, it may be that I’m just lazy, but I’m getting a little weary of episodes with imitation-acronym titles. Typing all the periods in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is fiddly enough without having to do the same multiple times over the course … Continue reading
When I was a young MK, I wanted to be an architect. I’m not one, nor will I likely ever be one, but I remember why I changed my mind: too much math. Now, I am actually good at math … Continue reading
Finally, a good Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode. Like objectively good, not just “good-for-Agents-of-S.H.I.E.L.D.” good. I’ll admit, I’m being a little unfair. There have been a handful of legitimately good episodes throughout what has been a generally mediocre first season. “T.R.A.C.K.S.”, however, … Continue reading
Last week’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., “The Magical Place” was a high-ish point of the season, delivering on the mythology and the film ties that the show has been promising (and largely failing) to give us since last fall. … Continue reading
It seems like only yesterday we waved “See you later!” to ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., after a somewhat poorly executed episode that cast aside the show’s procedural MO and ended in a cliffhanger: S.H.I.E.L.D. superhuman Mike Peterson apparently dead, and Agent … Continue reading
And now, finally, we come to the mid-season finale for Marvel and ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., wherein it seems as though the creative team suddenly remembered that they needed to write a mid-season finale, because serialized TV dramas generally have an … Continue reading
What we look for in popular culture doesn’t happen in a vacuum; from the media we’ve consumed in the past, to the people we have encountered, it influences what we think about TV shows and how we connect to certain … Continue reading
And now we come to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s much-ballyhooed Thor: The Dark World tie-in episode, “The Well”. I’m going to get this out of the way immediately: as far as tie-ins go, it was really, really disappointing. Yes, it opens in Greenwich … Continue reading
Welcome back to our reviews of Marvel & ABC’s Agents of SHIELD. Agents took a few of weeks off, and so did we. As with every review so far, we’re keeping things as spoiler-free as possible. We’ll be looking at last week’s … Continue reading
Last week I said that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. needs to stay away from international locales, based on their reliance on stereotypes and less than stellar performance when it comes to cultural sensitivity. This was mostly in response to their treatment of Peru … Continue reading
We’ve now hit more-or-less a regular schedule for keeping up with Marvel & ABC’s new series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., after a decent yet still ho-hum pilot episode, a truly execrable second episode, and a third that finally lived up to … Continue reading
Here we are again with my look at the first three episodes of Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D., as I try to catch up to a regular schedule. With Episode 2, (“0-8-4”), the Agents seemed to have gotten some ridiculum mixed in with … Continue reading
I’ve just caught up on Marvel and ABC Studio’s grand experiment in entertainment, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and, unfortunately, it’s not yet lived up to its promise or pedigree. (Although the most recent episode was a step in the right direction, … Continue reading
I know that it may be hard to believe for some of you but FOX is doing something right with this whole supernatural TV show thing by bringing us Sleepy Hollow. (I know it’s only been a few episodes.) I’ve … Continue reading
