In the (so-far) two-season history of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, ABC Tuesdays at 9 PM, just about all of the characters have gone through massive changes. Agent Phil Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, has learned that he was actually brought back from the dead courtesy of alien technology; not only that, he’s been appointed Director of the whole S.H.I.E.L.D. organization, courtesy of secretly-alive former Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Chloe Bennet’s orphan computer hacker Skye has discovered she’s an Inhuman, with the ability to bring buildings down; she’s also found that her father Kal (Kyle MachLachlan) is alive and […]Read On »

Viewers of ABC’s MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, in its first season Tuesdays at 8 PM, were dealt a huge shock with the episode “Turn, Turn, Turn.” Airing just after the theatrical release of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, it dealt (like SOLDIER) with the revelation that S.H.I.E.L.D. had from its inception been infiltrated by the proto-Nazi organization HYDRA, which has now revealed itself and is wreaking havoc. This is terrible for the series regulars – team leader Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) and Skye (Chloe Bennet), who’ve […]Read On »
