TV REVIEW: MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD – Season 1 – “Turn, Turn, Turn”

Ming-Na Wen stars as Agent May in AGENTS OF SHIELD | © 2014 ABC/Kelsey McNeal

Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker Writer: Shalisha Francis Director: John Terlesky Network: Airs on ABC Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 11, 2014 Warning: Spoilers ahead. It seems that MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD debuted at the wrong time. Had the series debuted in the mid-season and actually well-timed with what happened in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER then maybe it wouldn’t have lost the vast number of viewers it has over the course of the season. You see, the last three episodes of AOS have been the best all year. …Read On »

In Season 2 of DA VINCI’S DEMONS, Saturdays at 9 PM on Starz, da Vinci is so determined to find the fabled Book of Leaves that he sets sail across uncharted reaches of the ocean and lands in what we now know …Read On »
