Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
So... I enjoyed this episode. In fact, I think it might be the best one this show has managed to pull off, with the exception of the one with Simmons almost dying. This episode just... it did a lot of good work. It's still not soaring to new heights or anything, but I'll tell you one thing: Lady Sif helped matters a lot. Also, there's a shocking twist in this episode that actually made me gasp out loud. Let's take a look at the plot.

Lorelei enslaves a biker gang to her will, beginning to create her army. The team discovers a strange reading in the desert, which indicates Asgardian technol...

Lots of Fitzsimmons. If this show can just be about Fitzsimmons now, I'll be happy. Seriously. Who cares about Skye and Ward? Let us discuss the plot!

So, at the S.H.I.E.L.D. academy, some kids almost get frozen by an instantly freezing pool. Ward, Skye, and Fitzsimmons go to investigate. Fitz and Simmons are pretty much celebrities at the academy, while Ward, who is from Operations instead of Sciences, is bemused at Fitzsimmon's popularity. While the two scientists are giving a lecture, another freezing incident occurs. They are able to save Donnie, the almost-victim. Donnie and Fitz spen...

The Best And Worst Resurrections Of TV Characters

December 18th, 2013 11:07am EST
Family Guy
Brian from Family Guy was resurrected via some time-traveling tomfoolery Sunday night, making him the latest TV character to be brought back from the dead. We can't say we were surprised by his return, considering Family Guy might as well be called "The Stewie and Brian Show" these days. However, it did get us thinking about some of the best and worst resurrections of TV characters…

Worst: Stewie, Family Guy. Let's stick with Family Guy for our first choice. Yes, it was necessary for Stewie to come back to life due to his popularity on the show. However, when Stewie "died" in a computer pr...

Thoughts On 'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Through 7 Episdoes (Review)

November 13th, 2013 9:42am EST
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t the best network drama on TV. The series isn’t the best superhero show on TV. The CW’s Arrow is currently producing terrific episodes weekly. Arrow’s a product of DC Comics whereas Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is saturated in the Marvel brand. Marvel’s basically untouchable as a brand, especially after its deal with Netflix to produce four more series about superheroes. Thor: The Dark World earned $86.1 million over the weekend. Arrow feels like an extension of the tone Chris Nolan created and set in his Batman trilogy. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is an extension of the mo...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Girl in the Flower Dress (1x05)

October 27th, 2013 7:10pm EDT
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
Cliche. That's the best word I can use to describe my problem with this episode. Cliche. Let's take a look at the plot.

So, a street magician in China (Chan Ho Yin) seems to have some pyrotechnic powers. He is visited by a mysterious girl named Raina, who is the "girl in the flower dress" mentioned in the title. Raina wants to help him turn into a real super hero. We find out that Chan is in contact with S.H.I.E.L.D. and they've been keeping an eye on him. When Chan doesn't make a meeting with his S.H.I.E.L.D. handler, they realize he's been taken.

Apparently, the reason Raina and her peo...

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Review: Eye Spy (1x04)

October 19th, 2013 2:00am EDT
Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
This episode gets a failing grade for title creativity. Seriously. Eye Spy? Are you people kidding me? But if I stop sighing in exasperation at stupid title puns, this episode did have a few good things to offer us. It was certainly stronger than last week's. For the first time, I felt some connection to Skye's character, which is a pretty significant improvement and a definite step in the right direction. But let's slow down and look at the plot.

We open with a very interesting scene. This was my favorite opening sequence on the show so far. There were creepy people with red masks and bri...

Fall 2013 TV Report (So Far)

October 5th, 2013 2:06pm EDT
Sleepy  Hollow
Here’s how the Fall TV season has been shaping up.

Sunday:

ABC doesn’t have a lot to celebrate about. Once Upon A Time and Revenge are both down season-to-season, yet up from last season’s finales. So, really, you could say they are even for the night. Their new drama, Betrayal, however is a disappointment. Low ratings. Does ABC have anything ready to replace Betrayal though? They’re already definitely going to cancel the much lower rated Lucky 7 (an almost certainty), can they afford to axe two shows?

CBS has a nice strong lineup of returning shows, all performing well. FOX’s shows are ...

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recap: Season 1 Episode 2 '0-8-4'

October 4th, 2013 7:33am EDT
Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
A promising second episode. Here's what I'll say upfront about this show. It's still early days. It's hard to be too critical of something that's still just learning to walk on its own, and while Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is not up to masterpiece standards, I think about the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I know that sometimes true art takes a while to emerge. I trust these actors and especially this creative team to give me a quality product. It's just not quite there yet.

In this installment, the team has been ordered to retrieve an 0-8-4, which is basically an unidentified ob...

TV Pilot Review: 'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

September 25th, 2013 8:10pm EDT
Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The most hyped show of the season has arrived. Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. is the most ambitious project this season, but ambition doesn’t necessarily translate into quality. While it has been a while since we walked this path with such a major canon, we’ve been here before. Heroes had to create a story without the benefit of a backstory, and make it interesting. And regardless of how you feel about Heroes later seasons, Season 1 was incredible. And comparing Agents of Shield’s pilot to Heroes? Well…

Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) is alive and well. Though, there’s a hint of mystery as to...

'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.': The Best New Show Of The Fall Season

September 25th, 2013 9:57am EDT
Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Today is good: a Joss Whedon series is back in primetime.

Unlike his last two series, Firefly and Dollhouse, no reports of the network ordering a re-shot pilot hit the Deadlines and TVLines of the internet. Joss Whedon directed one of the biggest movies of all-time (2012's The Avengers); now, he pretty much runs Marvel Studios. He polishes Captain America and Thor and oversees the biggest brand of Marvel right now--The Avengers. Critics and bloggers didn't doubt Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would get ordered to series. Critics and bloggers wondered when they'd get to watch the first episode. Jos...

Avengers 2 may not grace our movie screens until 2015, but sci-fi master Joss Whedon is keeping busy – at least on the small screen with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Aside from being of the most anticipated pilots of the season, the series focuses on a special group of skilled individuals who come together and work to keep the world safe while the superheros are fighting to save the day.

So what can we expect? We were lucky enough to have the opportunity at Comic Con to sit down with the master himself for a brief interview. Watch the full interview below for Whedon’s thoughts on what f...

Whether or not you’re an Avengers fan, it’s hard not to be excited for one of the most anticipated pilots of the fall season – Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., coming to ABC Sept. 24. At Comic Con this summer, we sat down with Chloe Bennet and Brett Dalton as they discussed their characters and how they feel about their “induction” into the Marvel universe.

“Every character has a history. That’s what Marvel is so great at, having a back story for their heroes, but they have just as much of a back story for these humans”, says Bennet, who plays Skye, newcomer computer hacker (or, in Bennet’...

2013 Fall TV Preview: the New Shows on ABC

September 1st, 2013 10:00am EDT
Agents of SHIELD
The critics slammed ABC's president, Paul Lee, after ABC's panel at the 2013 Television Critics Association tour. Critics slammed him for his lack of preparation, for his devotion to the company's buzzwords about four quadrant programming, and for his aloofness. ABC finished fourth in a key demographic last season. The executives at ABC must hope Whedon's box office success will translate to television success because the rest of their lineup of new shows is as bland as a carton of plain yogurt. Besides Whedon's series and a comedy series created by a former Community writer, the crop of ne...

Top 10 Predicted Hits And Misses Of The New 2013 Fall TV Season

August 17th, 2013 4:00pm EDT
Mom
With the dog days of August winding down, the TV season is just around the corner with lots of new series premieres being served up. We've taken a closer look at the big networks fall offerings – here's what we think will be the top hits and misses of the new TV season.

Top 10 Hits:

Mom: Chuck Lorre is pretty close to owning CBS at this point. Even if the show is dreadful, it will still benefit from being a part of CBS’s strong Monday night lineup, and leading out from 2 Broke Girls which has evolved into a hit over the last two seasons. Plus, the addition of Anna Faris and Allison Janney...

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Extended Trailer Shows Agent Coulson's Return, Hints At Superhero Cameos

May 15th, 2013 12:07pm EDT
Agents of SHIELD
The funny thing about comic book characters is that they rarely stay dead for long.

Agent Phil Coulson, despite getting stabbed in the back in The Avengers and dying in the arms of Nick Fury, has returned to the world of the living and will play a huge role in the upcoming TV series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

At first it was believed the series would take place before the events of The Avengers, but it becomes clear that this is post-New York invasion when an interviewed agent describes himself as "Clearance Level 6" and explains that he knows Coulson was killed.

That's when Coulson...
