“The Tragedy” Is a “Mandalorian” Fans Dream

If you’ve been feeling like “The Mandalorian” is moving too slowly this season, “The Tragedy” ultimately makes up for it. It almost feels as if everything happens in this episode though we haven’t quite hit the conclusion yet. The episode also features the long-anticipated return of a classic Star Wars character. It’s hard to think […]

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 […]

Adapt Or Die Isn’t A Warning You Should Give The “Agents of SHIELD”

After a discussion with Sybil the Predictor (Tamara Taylor) that is more about Coulson’s speech than learning much, Coulson blows up the Chronicom hunter forms that were about to be awakened. Good news for the team, but we also apparently lose Coulson in the explosion. We did have a whole long conversation about him being able to come back from the dead, so I don’t think he’s gone, but it still makes for a good midseason rattle ’em up. Adapt or die indeed.

Out Of The Past

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.

“Know Your Onions” Adds A Few Layers To “Agents Of SHIELD”

And then that was it for the 1930s. The Chronicoms move on with SHIELD hot on their trail. It will undoubtedly come into play that Enoch was left behind. He ends up working with Koenig (Patton Oswald), possibly beginning an explanation as to why there are so many Koenigs in the future. Could Koenig be a new Chronicom himself? Could it be him that is ultimately responsible for the continued existence of SHIELD? “Know Your Onions” doesn’t tell us, but we’ll find out if he pops up in the next time destination.
