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 »

In Season 2 of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, ABC Tuesdays at 9 PM, there’s some new kind of havoc around every corner. Phil Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, was resurrected after his big-screen death in MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, and is now running the beleaguered S.H.I.E.L.D. It turned out that one of Coulson’s trusted agents, Grant Ward, played by Brett Dalton, was really part of the fascistic Hydra organization. Worse, Ward has just escaped, but he remains entranced by Skye, played by Chloe Bennet. Skye is Bennet’s first regular series role. When we met her character at the beginning of SHIELD’s […]Read On »

Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Nick Blood, BJ Britt, Iaini De Caestecker, Brett Dalton, Henry Simmons, Adrianne Palicki Network: Airs on ABC, Tuesdays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 11, 2014 The point of “The Writing on the Wall” was to end the whole deal happening with Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his crazy visions of the alien diagram floating in his brain that may be a map or a schematic or whatever. Turns out, it is actually the diagram of a city. What city and where is still in question. But in order to find this […]Read On »

Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Nick Blood, BJ Britt, Iaini De Caestecker, Brett Dalton, Henry Simmons, Adrianne Palicki Writer: Brent Fletcher Director: Holly Dale Network: Airs on ABC, Tuesdays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 28, 2014 Of course, Ward (Brett Dalton), escaped. They wouldn’t have put on this whole dog and pony show on MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD otherwise. The entire episode of “A Fractured House” was just a big set up to get him out of the basement of S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ and put him once again as a player on the show. Now, whether […]Read On »

MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD actress Elizabeth Henstridge on Season 2 – Exclusive Interview

In ABC’s MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, now in its second season Tuesday nights at 9, a lot has changed since the series began its first year. The show, adapted by Joss Whedon & Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen from the Marvel comics, is intimately tied in with the Marvel film universe, so when Hydra agents emerged to wreak havoc with S.H.I.E.L.D. from within during the big screen’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, all hell immediately also broke loose on AGENTS. In the aftermath, it turned out that team member Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) was a Hydra mole. Team chief Phil […]Read On »

If this show needed a strong female character that isn’t wrapped up in daddy issues or constantly pining for her boss to get back to being the old guy she used to know it is MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD. Palicki, for those uninitiated, is hot-as-balls. She was originally found in the great NBC series FRIDAY NIGHT […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. – THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

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 »

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 »
