Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: “Nothing Personal”

The show’s villains: Ward and Deathlok. Nothing Personal should be the episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in which the pace and tension is fired up; preparing the audience and the characters for the season finale. After several strong, suspense-filled episodes, Nothing Personal should be the episode in which everything is … Continue reading

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:- “The Only Light in the Darkness”

Amy Acker’s Audrey: a strong performance in an otherwise empty episode. Procedural genre television shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. typically follow conventions established by the trailblazers of the genre (such as The X-Files and Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:- “Providence”

This beautiful poster was created to promote the episode. A bizarre amount of effort for such a trivial instalment.

TV Review: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – “Seeds”

The good part of the episode: the Mexico City chase scene. The most recent episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Seeds, is a mixed affair. The episode is divided into two subplots; one of which is fairly interesting and well-written. The second subplot is indicative of everything that is wrong with … Continue reading

TV Review: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Pilot

(Note: Due to this being a Pilot episode, this review will be somewhat longer than those of future episodes) Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is not the first television series to spin-off from a popular film. However, there is something rather unique and ambitious about Joss Whedon’s newest creation. The show’s intention … Continue reading
