MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Episode 2.10: What We Become (mid-season finale review)

Over the last few years, television has seen the advent of the “mid-season finale,” or, as network marketing pronounces it, “MID-SEASON FINALE!!” In the past this was more commonly known as the “episode before winter hiatus” or, more succinctly, “just another episode.” Well, not anymore!

MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Episode 2.09: …Ye Who Enter Here (T.V. review)

…Ye Who Enter Here, the title of this week’s episode, alludes to the warning at hell’s entrance, “abandon all hope, ye who enter here,” as depicted in Dante’s The Divine Comedy.

If given enough time, I could recap, rehash, reiterate, and regurgitate the hell out of it and then, once the proverbial dust had settled, I could […]

MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Episode 2.06: A Fractured House (T.V. review)

The title of this week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode, A Fractured House, could refer to multiple “houses.” There’s S.H.I.E.L.D. itself, still suffering from its Hydra infestation and fugitive status. Next is the Fitz-Simmons relationship, which resumed last week with Simmons’ return, though not in the direction that Fitz would prefer. Then we have a pair […]
