“The Nexus Event” You’ve Been Waiting For Comes To “Loki”

“The Nexus Event” finally breaks “Loki” wide open, but not before a lot of crushing moments. Fortunately, the end will have even the most passing of Marvel fans cheering. The show has drawn a nice balance between character study and action. And it wouldn’t be Marvel if you didn’t get this at some point: stay […]

“Variant” Wants You To Trust Loki

The writers and producers of “Loki” continue to show their love affair with “Doctor Who”. First, there are the statues of the Time Keepers, who look like they would fit right in on Gallifrey. Then there’s the Theremin use in the soundtrack, which rings back to the original Delia Derbyshire theme for “Doctor Who”. Finally, […]

WandaVision Episode 4 Is Everything You Need To Know

At the start of “WandaVision,” I was concerned that you would need to know a lot about the Marvel Universe to follow along each week. Now, with WandaVision Episode 4, I wish we could binge the show and uncover all of its mysteries. I need to go back and start over with the Marvel movies […]

WandaVision Episode 3 – Now In Color But Still Cloudy

“WandaVision Episode 3″ continues to ask the question of “What is going on here?” The only problem is that no one seems to know exactly, or if they do, they are afraid to talk about it. Something, as Vision notices, isn’t quite right with Westview. Is it what Wanda wants, though? If it isn’t, who […]

“WandaVision Episode 2” – Who Is Doing This To Us?

“Wanda, who’s doing this to you?” It’s the question we all have so far. “WandaVision” has done an exciting job in its first two episodes of mixing the mystery with the almost insane. “WandaVision Episode 2” has references that are likely to go unnoticed if you haven’t watched everything Marvel (like me), but the show […]

“WandaVision” Episode One Reveals Nothing Is As Is Seems

We didn’t have any idea what to expect from “WandaVision,” Marvel’s first foray into live-action television. I can confirm after watching episode one that I’m not sure what I observed. “WandaVision” is a departure from the typical Marvel project. Perhaps that is why I am so giddy about watching what amounts to an episode of […]

The Downside Of The Uptake In Streaming Services

This fall will see the launch of Disney+ and Apple TV+, widening the ever-expanding playing field of streaming service choices.  It’s a far cry from the days when all you had to do is pick between Netflix and Hulu or just stick with your existing cable provider.  But with so many new choices we’ve arrived […]

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 […]

Fear And Loathing On The Planet Of Kitson Elevates SHIELD To A New High

I said it a lot last season and this episode holds the idea up even further; ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ works best the more the team is tied together.  That isn’t to say the first few episodes of the season haven’t worked.  In comparison to ‘Fear and Loathing on the Planet of Kitson’, they do move along a little […]

Agents Of SHIELD Misses Its Window Of Opportunity

I was really hoping with a new shortened season of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ we’d see less of the filler episodes.  You know, the episodes that don’t really give away much of the plot but are there to fill the obligatory 24 episode per season requirement?  Sadly, ‘Window of Opportunity’ is exactly one of these kinds of episodes.  […]
