The Equalizer (1985) – The Children’s Song, and The Distant Fire

William Zabka is back as Robert McCall’s (Edward Woodward) son, Scott, and there’s a television debut for Bradley Whitford, Ed O’Neill shows up as a local doctor, and Dana Barron from National Lampoon’s Vacation is this week’s person in need of help from McCall’s Equalizer. The Children’s Song was written by Howard Chesley, Joel Surnow…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E08 – The Well

  Now this is what I’m talking about! Jonathan Frakes directs this week’s episode which comes in as my favorite of the series following the pilot. This week’s episode, The Well, takes place during the clean-up following the events of Thor: The Dark World (which admittedly I still have to get out and see), so…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E07 – The Hub

  This week’s episode was definitely stronger than last week’s, and I love the little pieces of character revelations and development we’re getting. I also had a nice little geek moment when The Triskelion got mentioned while our team was visiting The Hub, a SHIELD operations center, run by Agent Victoria Hand (Saffron Burrows). While…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E06 – F.Z.Z.T.

  I got to catch up on SHIELD this weekend. After a week off, the series was back, in what I felt was a mediocre episode, and I hate to think that they may have lost some of the momentum they were building up. There were individual story threads that I quite enjoyed, but overall…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E03 – The Asset

  Ok, this one was stronger than last week’s ep,¬†and we’re still seeing the team coalesce. I’m hoping we’re almost at the point where that happens and storylines can get big and epic, our characters can grow and change, and we’ll get to explore a little bit more of the Marvel Universe, as opposed to…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E02 – 0-8-4

  The second episode of Whedon’s new series based in the Marvel universe, picks up where last week’s left off, as the team piles onto the Bus to investigate the 0-8-4, which no one knows what it means, as it can mean a plethora of things. In this case, it is a piece of Hydra…
