The Story So Far… Our team of heroes is traveling through time, trying to stop the Chronicoms plan to destroy SHIELD in the past. And they’ve been having to do that with a few hurdles in their own camp, like a Life Model Decoy version of Coulson, a not completely there May, a power futzing out YoYo, and now thanks to their need to jump at a specific time in order to get out of a specific point in the past, Enoch is now stranded in the 1930’s! But where did the time jumping Zephyr and the rest of the team go to? Continue reading

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Season 7 recap, “Know Your Onions”

5 Jun

The Story So Far… Our team finds themselves in 1931 New York, trying to prevent the Chronicoms’ plans to take over Earth by dismantling SHIELD in the past before it’s created. Our heroes slowly learn, though, their plan to dismantling SHIELD isn’t to simply destroy the roots of the organization, but to destroy the actual need for SHIELD.

So now they have to protect Freddie, Gideon’s father, from being killed in order to ensure their greatest enemy, and ultimately SHIELD, comes to pass! Jeez, time travel is a mindscrew.

A Marvel’s AGENTS OF SHIELD Primer: 20 Essential Episodes

27 Jan

Stewart here…

It’s hard to believe that Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD has managed to survive five seasons, let alone be renewed for a seventh one months (!) before the sixth is to be released.  It was meant to be adjacent to all the big goings on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but without a heavy link to them (save a cameo or two from Nick Fury early on), it seemed a slave to whenever those big events in the movies happened.  That was true of the first season (and we’ll get into that soon enough), but as the show continued and became less motivated by the movies, it became a better series for it. And now 110 episodes later, it’s somehow managed to survive fluctuating ratings and schedules, and with barely an end visible for now.

The setup in a nutshell: we follow SHIELD agent Phil Coulson (and since this is after The Avengers movie, it’s strange because he DIED in that movie) as he puts together a team of agents to deal with the growing superhuman threats across the world.  That team consists of field agents Grant Ward, Melinda May, scientists Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons (FitzSimmons, respectively), and newcomer Daisy Johnson, and they all have their own respective baggage with them.  As the show moved on, their ranks grew and shrunk, they dealt with betrayal between themselves and from SHIELD itself, and occasionally dealt with threats not just superhuman, but alien and supernatural. Hell, they even went to space.  Some of the team more than once.

So, in order to help you get caught up before the sixth season premieres sometime in the summer, here’s a list of 20 of its best and pivotal episodes from all five seasons that are worth watching.  There are mild SPOILERS, but the summaries are kept vague as possible to avoid revealing some of the surprises in store.

Heroes and Villains invade San Jose for another grand Fan Fest!

7 Dec

We had the opportunity to attend Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in San Jose for the second year recently. Since we weren’t there in a press/media or doing a panel capacity, it was a little strange and initially there wasn’t going to be a post about the convention. However, there were enough differences- and some issues we wanted to address- that it seems like a good idea to write something up. We had a great time, I want to make that clear- HVFF puts on a good show!

But… it could be better. Continue reading

Marvel’s AGENTS OF SHIELD Launches Season 4 With A Vengeance!

SPOILERS ahead for the first two episodes of the new season…

After all that happened last season, like HYDRA getting wiped out and everyone’s favorite likable psychopath Grant Ward finally meeting his end, it was hard to see where the next season would go. We knew from that brief time jump glimpse in the season 3 finale, Daisy was a fugitive and Coulson was no longer SHIELD’s head honcho. But what did that really mean for the rest of our team? That part was left vague, but with this week’s season premiere, we finally get a clue to what’s going on with SHIELD now, if at best, its a bit clearer. But let’s run through the bullet points of the season premiere: Continue reading

On the whole, this show has been gradually improving from season to season, and season three was no exception. But I thought I’d just bring up some big points that stuck with me in my rewatch. Expect snarkiness and lots of SPOILERS to follow: Continue reading
