Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E09 – Repairs

  This week’s episode features a young woman Hannah (Laura Seay),who believes she is being punished by god, and haunted by demons for letting her workmates die in a laboratory explosion. We also get a little bit more backstory on Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen). And there’s more fallout from the events of Thor: The Dark…

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. S01E05 – Girl in the Flower Dress

  The other show I had to catch up on after Toronto After Dark was this week’s episode of S.H.I.E.L.D., and as demonstrated from week to week, the stories and character continue to get stronger and more enjoyable. This week, we learn a little bit more about Skye (Chloe Bennet), though we’re still left on…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E04 Eye-Spy

  This week’s episode, scripted by Jeffrey Bell, who’s writing credits include Angel, Alias and The X-Files, is the strongest episode of the series so far. It seems to be improving every week, so my hopes are starting to climb for the rest of the season. Directed by Star Trek alumni Roxann Dawson (who played…

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. S01E01 – Pilot

  Joss Whedon returns to the small screen while expanding the universe he got to join and play in with The Avengers. As a pilot, the episode is well-crafted, introducing all the characters, both primary and secondary, giving us broad strokes of who they are, and the dynamic and role they’ll fill on the show….
