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 »

When MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, based in the Marvel comics universe, debuted on ABC last year, we followed a team of agents led by Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) on a series of adventures. Then the feature film CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER was released on April 4, 2014. The S.H.I.E.L.D. agency was attacked from within by the group Hydra, whose operatives turned out to have been inside S.H.I.E.L.D. since its inception in World War II. In the very next episode of AGENTS OF SHIELD, our heroes had to deal with the […]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 »

In Part 2 of Assignment X’s exclusive interview with J. August Richards, the actor talks more about his work on MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD (ABC, Tuesdays at 8 PM) as the character Mike Peterson/Deathlok, plus his writing/directing project THE HYPNOTIST. ASSIGNMENT X: When you were on ANGEL, the producers were worried about spoilers, but it seems you’ve achieved a whole new level of security clearance working for Marvel. What is it like dealing with that kind of secrecy? J. AUGUST RICHARDS: Having to deal with Marvel security has introduced a phrase into my vocabulary that I now overuse. For example, […]Read On »

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

Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Bill Paxton Writer: Jeffrey Bell Director: Roxann Dawson Network: Airs on ABC Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: May 6, 2014 So the penultimate episode of the first season of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD was a last minute attempt to tie all the loose ends together before what ABC has promised to be an “explosive” season finale to the show. Obviously, this show has gone through a lot of changes and various plotlines during the course of a very tumultuous first season so an episode such […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: J. August Richards on MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD – Part 1

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 »

TV Review: MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD – Season 1 – “The Only Light in the Darkness”

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 »

TV Review: MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD – Season 1 – “Providence”

Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker Director: Milan Cheylov Network: Airs on ABC Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 15, 2014 Warning there are probably spoilers to CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLIDER inside. Obviously a lot has happened over the course of the last few episodes of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD. There was the whole Hydra taking over thing and the collapse of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a result, Nick Fury is dead (presumably), Agent Ward (Brett Dalton) has revealed his true self as a Hydra agent and the rest of Agent Coulson’s […]Read On »

Every year THE PALEY CENTER FOR MEDIA holds THE PALEYFEST. This year was their 31st Annual PALEYFEST and was held at the Dolby Theatre (where the Academy Awards are held) in Hollywood.

On Sunday March 23rd the stars and Executive Producers of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD was the showcase TV show.  Walking into the lobby […]Read On »

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 »
