Agents of SHIELD Brand New Day

A “Brand New Day” Before The End Of Agents Of SHIELD

All season, the Agents of SHIELD have been at a pretty significant disadvantage. Sybil the Predictor, a Chronicom that can see all of time and it’s infinite variances, has been informing those working against SHIELD what they’ll do. Sure, they’ve had moments that Sybil didn’t notice, but for the most part, the conclusion was known before the start. Of course, our team will never get up despite the odds are moving increasingly toward them losing everything.

“The Totally Excellent Adventures of Mack and the D”, Or, “Chopping Mall”

“The Totally Excellent Adventures of Mack and the D” is a wild ride through bad 80’s movies. If you don’t believe me, you might want to give the 1986 film “Chopping Mall” a view. It is straight-up terrible in ways that beg for watching. Preferably with friends and with alcohol. Fortunately, “Agents of SHIELD” uses […]

Agents Of SHIELD Bring Someone Out Of The Past

What is an LMD like you doing in a slightly altered past like this? “Out of the Past” is the film-noir tribute that the producers of “Agents of SHIELD” have probably wanted to do since one of them first mentioned time-travel. Fortunately, it’s a fun roll through the genre. It also packs a little more into the look at racism and sexism that “Alien Commies From The Future!” started. The future also gets a gift from the past that is pretty spoilery, so we’ll talk about that later.

The New Deal

“The New Deal” Brings Back “S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Still, it wouldn’t be the show we all love if there weren’t a lot of things frontloaded onto the season. I’m glad the show will have the ability to jump around the time streams. It’d be a bit much to get stuck in one place for 13 episodes. Plus, it’ll be fun to see the different Koenigs (Patton Oswald). Maybe, just maybe, we’ll even get some cross over from the big screen? I guess we’ll find out soon enough. Though with time travel, you never know.

The Agents Are On A Collision Course As The Shrike Storyline Comes Together

Reviewing part one of a two-part episode always feels a bit empty.  Questions that are raised will undoubtedly be answered in part two, and the reactions you have might be unjustified by then.  And of course, while the episode is probably action packed – you do have to get viewers back for part two – […]

‘Toldja’ Reveals The Threat Of This Season Of SHIELD

Sarge, the Phil Coulson look-alike who is all cold and hard and killy, further revealed himself not to be the threat of this season of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’ in ‘Toldja’.  One might question why he couldn’t help the team with their Shrike problem earlier, but he does help rescue May and Yo-Yo who were trapped on the […]

Memory Is Inescapable In The Latest Agents Of SHIELD

For as much as they’ve been extra kept apart this season we definitely deserved a good FitzSimmons reunion.  After all, keeping these two characters apart has been a cornerstone of the series, particularly in the last few years.  Although ‘Inescapable’ is only the sixth episode of the season, it feels like Simmons has been searching for […]

‘Code Yellow’ And ‘The Other Thing’ Move Agents Of SHIELD Right To The Point

If my previous reviews of season 6 have seemed a little impatient with ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, then the review of these two episodes should make up for that.  This show has always had a pattern of introducing a big idea and then not really giving viewers any breadcrumbs to find their way to what is going […]
