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.

Agents of SHIELD – The Sign And New Life Review

The ending of ‘New Life,’ the second part of the ‘Agents of SHIELD’ season conclusion almost explains the rushed feeling of the season finale this year.  It’s almost as if the writers just wanted to hurry and finish the Shrike threads so they could get to what will be fully revealed in season 7.  Not a bad […]

Agents Of SHIELD – Leap Review

Ok, I know it’s my own fault.  I often watch ‘Agents of SHIELD’ and promptly forget the details of each episode, not to mention entire seasons.  That is part of what makes watching things like ‘Doctor Who’ fun – I’m not really hung up on the continuity, so when things don’t line up it doesn’t bother me […]

‘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 […]
