Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Nick Blood, BJ Britt, Iaini De Caestecker, Brett Dalton, Henry Simmons, Adrianne Palicki Writer: Jeffrey Bell Director: Michael Zinberg Network: Airs on ABC, Tuesdays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 18, 2014 There was a lot going on in the winter finale of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD. And that’s a good thing considering winter finale’s need to have an impact. It’s a better thing for show such as AOS that at times seems to drag its feet on a lot of its storylines or misses the boat entirely. The first half […]Read On »

When it comes to musical testosterone, Brian Tyler’s work is the equivalent of a soundtrack Stairmaster playing at top speed. Whether he’s scoring Viking gods, international speed racers or not-so over-the-hill brothers in arms, Tyler’s dynamically percussive rhythms blast multiplex speakers with maximum impact, his mighty cues throttling from one explosive crescendo to the next. But while Tyler’s action-centric scores are all about energetic attitude, he rocks out in a way that shows his old-school understanding for the importance of themes, let alone melody. It’s exactly this dynamic way of incorporating an orchestra with cutting-edge chords that’s made Tyler into […]Read On »
