How The Inhumans Should’ve Started

The first three episodes of The Inhumans have aired (the fourth is tonight), and they are…not great.  I’m no pessimist, and I’ll probably keep watching, but I have a LOT of thoughts on what went wrong, and how it could’ve been fixed. Why Inhumans couldn’t be a movie I actually agree with Marvel that The… Continue reading How The Inhumans Should’ve Started

Pilot Season – The Inhumans

I’ve watched the two episodes of Marvel’s new show, The Inhumans, and I’m reminded very strongly of season one of Agents of SHIELD.  With a little of the lackluster parts of Iron Fist thrown in for good measure.  It’s not great, but there is the tiniest of hope in me still that it can get… Continue reading Pilot Season – The Inhumans

Help Me Fix Agents of SHIELD

This is mostly in response to the article over at Heroic Hollywood, Is Marvel’s ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Really Any Good? so maybe check that first. There was no one more excited by the concept of Agents of SHIELD than me, when it was first announced.  A Whedon-adjacent look at the more mundane aspects of the… Continue reading Help Me Fix Agents of SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E06 Among Us Hide…

This show, man.  It gets you turned around.  It became clear that Lash wasn’t just some random person – Andrew was a possibility to be the killer Inhuman, but I dismissed him.  But there you are.  And this reveal leaves me with a ton of questions.  Is he one of the recent Inhumans created by… Continue reading Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E06 Among Us Hide…

Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E05 4,722 Hours

MARVEL'S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. - "4,722 Hours" - After her dramatic rescue from another planet, Simmons is still reeling from her ordeal and reveals how she had to fight for her life in a harsh new world, on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/Tyler Golden) ELIZABETH HENSTRIDGE

This will be quick as I’m very late getting this out.  AoS wastes little time in showing us just what happened to Agent Simmons on the blue-tinged planet.  It starts out as you expect, with Simmons falling back on her training for survival – at first staying near the portal exit in case it can… Continue reading Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E05 4,722 Hours

Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E03 A Wanted (Inhu)man

Agents of SHIELD continues to spin multiple plates each episode, but all of the storylines are still interesting.  This time around, the ATCU outs Lincoln as an alien threat on TV, and Daisy and Mack try to go to the rescue.  Lincoln reaches out to his AA sponsor for help, and it seems to go… Continue reading Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E03 A Wanted (Inhu)man

Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E02 Purpose in the Machine

MARVEL'S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. - "Purpose in the Machine" - Fitz and the team enlist the aid of an Asgardian to unlock the secrets of the ancient monolith that swallowed Simmons, and Agent May is at a crossroads in her personal and professional life, on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/Kelsey McNeal) SPENCER TREAT CLARK

Episode 2, Purpose in the Machine kicks off right where the premiere left off, and keeps up the breakneck pace.  After an open that shows old English dudes sending some poor sap into a room…with our monolith.  Mostly so one of them can tell us “no one ever returns!”.  But we know our Simmons is… Continue reading Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E02 Purpose in the Machine

Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E01 Laws of Nature

I’ve got a bit of free time on my hands, so I am going to try and write more – and I thought I’d start recapping some of my favorite shows.  First up, Agents of SHIELD! AoS season two dealt with the Inhumans, and the fact that Skye (now known by her real name, Daisy… Continue reading Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E01 Laws of Nature

Movie Review – Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I’ve been a Marvel guy since I first read my brother’s few remaining comics (the ones my Mom hadn’t tossed, that old story), but Captain America never appealed to me.  The costume seemed like a bit much, and he just didn’t seem to be as much fun as Iron Man or Spidey, and didn’t have… Continue reading Movie Review – Captain America: The Winter Soldier
