Agents of SHIELD Review: “Broken Promises”

They Always Fight Back

When will scientists learn that making our lifelike robots smarter is only asking for them to buck against the life of subservience we’ve subjected them to. The Winter Finale for Agents of SHIELD , “Broken Promises” is running full force into the LMD(Life Model Decoy) Apocalypse they teased earlier in the season, and they’re not only aware of how well tread this material is, but of how they could put their own spin on it.  Continue reading Agents of SHIELD Review: “Broken Promises”

Agents of SHIELD Winter Finale Review: “Laws of Inferno Dynamics”

The Killer In Me, Is The Killer In You

Agents of Shield came into season 4 touting a darker tone, thanks to a later start time, and some high expectations due to the introduction of the Ghost Rider. By the time we got to the winter finale, “Laws of Inferno Dynamics”, not only had they successfully melded the supernatural and sci-fi elements, but they’d also created a genuine connection between the audience and the newer characters. Ghosts and mad scientists hellbent on world domination and destruction will only get you so far. Good thing SHIELD had the story to back it up.

Agents of SHIELD Review: “Deals With Our Devils”

Refinancing The Demon Mortgage

After about a month away due to debate coverage and the Thanksgiving break, Agents of SHIELD returned to tie up some lose ends from their cliffhanger and connect a few threads to both Doctor Strange and Agent Carter(RIP). “Deals With Our Devils” offered a few twists and turns to go with the typical dramatic espionage that the show offers, and managed to give us a dream combination in Mack transforming into the Ghost Rider.  Continue reading Agents of SHIELD Review: “Deals With Our Devils”

Agents of SHIELD Review: “Lockup”

Previously, On Oz

The melding of supernatural and sci-fi continued on this weeks Agents of SHIELD. The science ghosts kept on the search for The Darkhold, and Daisy donned he SHIELD uniform for the first time. “Lockup” kept things pretty contained, but the larger implications of not only Robbie’s assistance, but SHIELD Director being an inhuman started to ripple out into the rest of the world. The devils spark is set to light a huge fire.  Continue reading Agents of SHIELD Review: “Lockup”

Agents of SHIELD Review: “Let Me Stand Next To Your Fire”

It’s Lit!

Agents of SHIELD is keeping up with the trend they established last season, seemingly skipping over weeks of tedious exposition and needless padding to get stories to their natural conclusions. In effect, having the characters react in consistent manner (for them) and playing bit of viewer vessel. In “Let Me Stand Next To Your Fire”, key players were brought together in what felt like a true kick start to the meatier portions of the season.  Continue reading Agents of SHIELD Review: “Let Me Stand Next To Your Fire”

Agents of SHIELD Review: MEET THE NEW BOSS

I See Kinda Dead People

Agents of SHIELD came roaring into season 4 with a darker tone, and a fresh take on the Ghost Rider character in episode 1.

Agents of SHIELD Season Premiere Review: THE GHOST

What’s In The Booooox?!

There, now that i’ve gotten the obvious, and unfortunately topical joke out of the way, I can talk about the Agents of SHIELD season 4 premiere episode The Ghost. Holy shit, we got Ghost Rider on prime time TV, and I don’t have an overwhelming feeling of embarrassment or shame! See kids, before one of our finest actors (fight me) turned him into a meme, Ghost Rider was a badass spectre, who used flaming chains and rode a motorcycle. While this isn’t the Johnny Blaze version of The Rider, Agents of SHIELD still leaned heavy on spectral mythology for their season opener.  Continue reading Agents of SHIELD Season Premiere Review: THE GHOST
