Stars: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Bill Paxton Suggested Retail Price: $79.99 Distributor: Marvel Studios/Buena Vista Home Entertainment One of the most disappointing things Marvel has done in its bid for superhero dominance is the creation of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. – an ABC TV series that should have been better than it actually was. Now it’s out on DVD and Blu-ray as THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON for the binge-viewers out there. And considering Joss Whedon, who wrote and directed THE AVENGERS, was at the helm and co-created the series with Jed …Read On »

Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Bill Paxton Writer: Maurissa Tancharoen, Jed Whedon Director: David Straiton Network: Airs on ABC Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: May 13, 2014 I stated previously that MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD should have been a 13-episode series beginning in the Winter in order to be tied into CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER that really set the series off in a good direction. It would have launched the series off with a direction and not having to tread water for half a season until the big plotline …Read On »

Stars: Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Laurie Holden, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Michael Rooker, Melissa Suzanne McBride, Scott Wilson, Emily Kinney, Dallas Roberts Distributor: Anchor Bay Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $79.99 With the showrunner turnover at THE WALKING DEAD occurring practically every season, you would think the series would suffer creatively and tonally, but as Season 3 of the AMC series proved, the story is compelling and strong enough to withstand occasional creative disruptions. THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON compiles all 16 episodes from the shocking arc that pitted Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and …Read On »

Cast: Dean Norris, Rachelle Lefevre, Alexander Koch, Mike Vogel, Natalie Martinez, Aisha Hinds, Jolene Purdy, Britt Robinson Writer: Brian K. Vaughn, Scott Gold Director: Jack Bender Network: CBS, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 16, 2013 Considering UNDER THE DOME already got renewed by CBS for presumably a return in the summer of 2014, the producers apparently thought they could go out with a defined whimper instead of anything resembling a proper cliffhanger season finale. The season finale of the show, entitled “Curtains,” was a complete mess. Whereas the previous last four episodes have actually improved the show …Read On »

The GLEE Season 4 finale “All or Nothing” is about as anti-climactic as they come. It feels like a series finale after everyone involved with the show has given up, not a show with two more seasons committed to it. The joyous, cool and innovative GLEE, …Read On »

Greenberg & Wendy Mericle Director: John Behring Network: The CW, airs Wednesday Nights Original Telecast: May 8, 2013 ARROW is normally at its strongest when it operates in shades of grey, but “Darkness on the Edge of Town” gives us a black & white, good vs. evil battle between Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman).  This is not necessarily a bad thing, though, because, while both men are hood-wearing vigilantes …Read On »

FX’s THE AMERICANS  has its first-season finale tonight, May 1 at 10 PM, but the series was already renewed for a second season by the time its second episode aired. The story begins in the early Eighties, at the beginning of Ronald Reagan’s presidency.
