Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker Director:Vincent Misiano Network: Airs on ABC Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 22, 2014 Well, it certainly seems that MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD has a direction now in terms of the entire mythology of the show (or at least this season) but they are dragging their heels to the finish line as it was shown in “The Light in the Darkness.” Now as cool as it is to think that this would just lead to numerous awesome stories involving the characters we have grown to […]Read On »

Clark Gregg’s character S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson was first introduced to audiences in the original IRON MAN film. Coulson has subsequently helped superheroes and director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in IRON MAN 2, THOR and in the animated ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN series. Coulson was tragically killed by Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in writer/director Joss Whedon’s THE AVENGERS, but he’s back as the team leader on ABC’s AGENTS OF SHIELD, Tuesdays at 8 PM. As viewers of the TV show, created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, learned in the episode “The Magical Place,” Coulson’s resurrection was agonizing, with consequences […]Read On »

CD Review: THOR: THE DARK WORLD soundtrack

Back in the comic book day, The House of Ideas teamed The Thing with a guest superhero star of the month for Marvel-Two-in-One. That series’ consistent match-up of four-color brawn has now been musically equaled in the space of one year by Brian Tyler, who follows up his entry into Marvel’s cinematic universe for IRON MAN 3 with even more powerfully potent results in THOR: THE DARK WORLD. But while it might not necessarily be an even match comparing a playboy in a souped-up suit of armor with an alien-Norse demigod, the evil elf-sponsored end of the universe versus an […]Read On »

Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker Writer: Paul Zbyszewski, Brent Fletcher Director: Kevin Hooks Network: Airs on ABC Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 7, 2014 Show of hands. How many actually thought that something bad happened to Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) on this week’s AGENTS OF SHIELD episode and S.H.I.E.L.D. was covering up exactly what happened? Yeah, pretty much everyone. So when we were promised in “The Magical Place” that we would get the big reveal about what went down, I think everyone was expecting to learn just what happened […]Read On »

Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker Writer: Monica Owusu-Breen Director: Jonathan Frakes Network: Airs on ABC Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 5, 2013 Funny that the opening segment of this week’s MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD had more superheroes in it than the entirety of the series thus far – and it was all footage from past and current films (namely THOR and THOR: THE DARK WORLD). That’s a sad state for a show that exists in the Marvel universe filled with … wait for it. Come closer. No, closer. FREAKING […]Read On »

MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, ABC Tuesday nights at 8 PM, deals with the team of non-superpowered folks who assist, investigate and otherwise deal with things pertaining to superheroes in the universe of THE AVENGERS. The series, created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, brings back Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), somehow resurrected – we don’t know quite how yet, but it’s clear Coulson himself has been misled – after his death in AVENGERS as the team leader. Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) is the most experienced agent after Coulson, Ward (Brett Dalton) is muscle, Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and […]Read On »

TV REVIEW: MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD – Season 1 – “0-8-4”

Chloe Bennet as Skye in MARVEL'S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. "0-8-4" | (c) 2013 ABC/Richard Foreman

Cast: Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Ron Glass, J. August Richards Writer: Jeffery Bell, Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen Director: David Straiton Network: Airs on ABC, Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 1, 2013 The second episode of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD was a bit of a disappointment. After a really good opening episode full of interesting subplots and witty banter, this played out more like a straight laced action black ops mission – something that we’d see on numerous other shows on numerous other networks. I was aware that […]Read On »
