One of, if not THE, biggest blockbuster movies of 2012, The Avengers not only brought some of the best and most popular superheroes together, it united crowds of comic geeks all around the globe.The film focused on a world in danger of a crazed villain and the band of egotistical men, woman and monsters of power who hold the ability to save it from destruction. Well, what about the office folk? Those without powers, yet posses just as much importance as those fighting the good fight? This is their story. Read more »
One of the best kept secrets of the upcoming fall season is ABC‘s new show, Marvel‘s Agents of SHIELD.  At the ABC Television Critics Association Press Day (TCAs), the executive producers and cast spoke cautiously to journalists. They didn‘t reveal too many secrets, but did provide insight into the series. Read more »

When it was announced that Clark Gregg was reprising his role of Phil Coulson on the new television series, Marvel‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, fans were confused since they saw him die in The Avengers. Would the series be a prequel to the movie? Or, did he live?  Read more »
With so many new fall shows to choose from (28 on the five major networks), it‘s hard to figure out which ones to watch and which ones to skip. You probably don‘t want to waste your time if you think a show will be cancelled right away,  Read more »
It hasn‘t even premiered yet and somehow ABC‘s new superhero drama Marvel‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is already the most buzzy show this fall. A lot of that has to do with being connected to huge box office smash (or Hulk smash, if you will) The Avengers. Some of it might also come from the involvement of cult hero Joss Whedon.  Read more »
Superheroes don‘t get to have all the fun on ABC‘s upcoming new drama Marvel‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Although it‘s based on the Marvel comic book universe, the show is more interested in human characters than superhuman abilities.  Read more »

Joss Whedon knows a thing or two about devoted fan bases. Each of his television series, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to gone-too-soon favorite Firefly have inspired obsessive love from fans. Now Whedon is back on the small screen with Marvel‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., his continuation of the universe established in The Avengers, and hoping to strike fan lighting again. Read more »
On the second night of the new fall season, ABC aired four new shows. While the night got off to a great start with Marvel‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but the end of the evening, ABC went from a huge high to an all-time low with the unlucky Lucky 7.  Read more »
Agents of SHIELD, arguably the most anticipated show of the new fall season, premiered on ABC this week with a cloud of secrecy matched only by the incredible promotion regarding the superhero drama.It is rare for a pilot episode to be hyped so much while so little is revealed, which just goes to show how confident the network is in its success. Very few clips and photos were circulated among the media and entertainment-type organizations, with the most footage being saved until Comic-Con, and you had to be pretty high up on the VIP totem pole to even be considered for a screener. Read more »
The premiere for the highly-anticipated Marvel action series Agents of SHIELD is in the books, so here is the first of our weekly feature highlighting the best agent from each episode.Superheroes are the obvious theme of the show, but most agents, it would seem, do not possess any special abilities other than advanced training, tech savvy-ness and awesome comedic one-liners.I haven‘t decided yet if superheroes will be eligible for the award, but seeing as how the only mutant (I know they‘re not using the word in the series, but I‘m sticking to my roots) this week was half-villain with weak Spider-Man-like powers, I wouldn‘t have picked Mr. Mike Peterson/The Hooded Hero anyway. Read more »
There are several lessons to be learned from the second episode of Agents of SHIELD.First, do not, under any circumstance, mess with Agent Melinda May. It will not end well for you.Also, don‘t go boozing around highly-trained foreign nationals, and never trust a hot Peruvian chick in camo who goes by the title Comandante, even if you used to bow chicka wow wow with her back in the day.Finally, a common enemy is all you need to unite a ragtag bunch of un-superheroes who bicker like a married couple. Read more »
The second episode of Marvel‘s superhero drama Agents of SHIELD was very much a team effort, which you would think would make it difficult to choose just one who shined above the rest. But I think this week‘s choice for the Agent of the Week award was actually pretty clear.First of all, it‘s kind of funny to call it a superhero drama, because the episode contained precisely zero superheroes. Instead, our team of agents battled an unstable Tesserack weapon, some rebels and the Peruvian National Police, led by a hot little number named Comandante Camilla Reyes. Read more »
Skye‘s loyalty to SHIELD came into question at the end of last week‘s Agents of Shield. In this week‘s "The Asset," she begins training with Agent Ward and is sent into the field when an important scientist is abducted. Will she succeed in her mission? And, is she trustworthy? Check out two sneak peeks! Read more »
We‘re three episodes in to the first season of Agents of SHIELD, and we‘ve highlighted a different non-superhero each week.In the pilot, everyone took a backseat to the technical brilliance of Leo Fitz (assisted by Jemma Simmons), while the last episode was an ode de triumph to the ninja badassery of Melinda May. Both, of course, barely beat out Agent Phil Coulson, who arguably deserves the award every week for basically just being awesome. Read more »
Okay, so before we get to the episode itself, I first have to lodge a major complaint about the promo-episode symbiosis (Venom suit reference!) that punched us harder than Skye hit that boxing bag pre-mission.The preview was very clear in showing a lot of, well, backside during Skye‘s balcony jump, which was conveniently edited out of the actual show. What was that all about?I know it‘s not The Bachelor, but c‘mon! Don‘t they know how many comic book nerds are in the audience? That‘s the most action The Big Bang Theory crowd would get all week. Read more »
The full season pick-ups and renewals are slowing making their way across the networks. ABC has announced that Agents of SHIELD has been given a full-season order.The Avengers spin-off, as with most debut shows, was initially given 13 episodes, so this "back nine" order gives the drama 22 total episodes for season 1. Read more »
Titus Welliver is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe when he reprises his role in Agents of SHIELD. And Jordin Sparks is set to guest star on CSI this fall. Read on for all the details, including casting news for Dallas, Ironside, The Vampire Diaries, Castle, The Goldbergs, The Mindy Project, Grimm, The Michael J. Fox Show and Switched at Birth. Read more »
Agents of SHIELD goes on the hunt for a thief who has committed several notable heists in "Eye Spy." The case gets more complicated when they realize that she has a connection to Coulson. Will they be able to bring her in without incident? It seems unlikely. Read more »
Everybody did something cool and contributory this week on Agents of SHIELD, as the team worked together to wrangle an agent-gone-rogue diamond thief being ordered around by an unknown villain controlling her with an eye bomb.Yes, literally a bomb in her mechanical, bionic eye. Good stuff. Read more »
Hey, if Michael Vick, Plaxico Burress and Donte Stallworth can get a second chance (and Pacman Jones gets like 20 -- sorry, only NFL references come to mind. Apparently they have a discipline problem. Probably no second chances for Aaron Hernandez though), why not a former SHIELD agent gone rogue with a bionic eye that records everything, can see in the dark and receives orders only the agent can see, all while forcing them to carry out said orders under the threat of instant death?I dunno how courts work in the post-Avengers era, but it seems like that might be grounds for some less-than-savory goings on. Read more »
Let‘s get this out of the way right off the bat: as much as I love Agents of SHIELD, it is at least 10 times cooler when there are actual superpowers on display. Episodes like this one finally pay off with what many of us expected the series to be before it premiered.Don‘t get me wrong, the non-superhero stuff works and remains highly entertaining, but characters with mutant abilities are the bread and butter of the Marvel Universe, and this really gives us something to get excited about. Read more »
The latest episode of Agents of SHIELD was arguably the best we‘ve seen all season, but "Girl in the Flower Dress" didn‘t particularly lend itself to standouts.In fact, even leading up to the moments I started writing, I not only debated who to give the Agent of the Week Award to, I also considered not giving it to to anyone. That‘s how weak the individual performances were this time around. Read more »
The nominations have been announced for the 2014 People‘s Choice Awards.Glee leads the pack with eight nominations, including Favorite Network TV Comedy and nods for Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jane Lynch and Lea Michele. Both The Big Bang Theory and Grey‘s Anatomy come in second with five nominations each, and How I Met Your Mother, Supernatural, Castle, The Walking Dead and Vampire Diaries all have four. Read more »
So far on this inaugural season of Agents of SHIELD, the team has had missions that served to bring them together, get them all on the same page and prove Skye‘s worth as a member. Then they saved a former agent being controlled by a villain and tested Skye‘s allegiance while reminding everyone that people with super powers will turn up from time to time.And along the way, they created a comic book supervillain, offered glimpses into their troubled pasts and blew up some stuff. But they‘ve also grown as a family. Read more »
It figures that one episode after the Agents of SHIELD Agent of the Week pickens were so slim I awarded it to the dead guy who was in the show for five minutes, I would now be faced with choosing between three legitimate contenders.The late Quan Chen got a pity award on account of the fact that he had a family and was killed by a guy name Scorch, but there was no such opening for mediocrity in "FZZT." Read more »
Last week on Agents of SHIELD, we watched the team come together as a family. And this week, they prove they‘re the good kind of family members who always looks out for each other, even if it means breaking the rules."The Hub" involves a mission that segments the team into three separate parts, which allows every agent to have everyone else‘s back in a number of different ways. At its heart, it‘s about the creation of Agent FitzWard.But it‘s also about a couple of chicks who are worried about their men and feel helpless, so they jump into action and help save the day. Read more »
It might have taken a team effort to bring about a happy ending on this week‘s episode of Agents of SHIELD, but accomplishing the mission sure didn‘t. Simmons, May, Coulson and Skye all did their part to get everyone home safely, but nearly all the credit in "The Hub" goes to the newly created bromance that is FitzWard.Leo Fitz and Grant Ward each brought their own individual skill set to the table and played an integral part in the destruction of the overkill device to earn top consideration for the Agent of the Week Award, but did either soar just a wee bit higher to take home solo honors?Let‘s break it down. Read more »
Ho-ly crap. That‘s a hell of a lot of episode crammed into 60 minutes, isn‘t it? I took so many notes during the latest Agents of SHIELD that I‘m not sure I actually watched any of it. It was almost a feature-length film squeezed into an hour timeslot."The Well" ties in with the latest Avengers sequel, Thor: The Dark World, and it is our first major plot crossover into the ever-evolving Marvel universe. Previously, we had an appearance by Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury, the introduction of some comic book characters and references to the movies and various Avengers, but this was the first direct cross-promotional tie-in with a standalone Marvel feature. Read more »
There was a a heck of a lot going on in the latest action-packed episode of Agents of SHIELD, but "The Well" still managed to find time to host a coming out party. (Not that kind, though there are apparently many more gay Marvel characters than I realized.)The episode tied in with Thor: The Dark World to give us our first real crossover into the expanding Marvel universe, and it also featured an ancient Asgardian warrior who fell in love with life on earth, buried his magical and rage-inducing staff around the planet and only got caught because he constantly got horny and couldn‘t keep his mouth shut. Read more »
The ninth episode of Agents of SHIELD stands out for two main reasons -- okay, three if you count that May and Ward are getting freaky (more on that later).The first is that "Repairs" is to Agent Melinda May what last week‘s "The Well" was to Agent Grant Ward -- a brief glimpse into the character‘s backstory with a bit of development and exposition that lets them relate better moving forward. But the second and perhaps more puzzling thing that‘s noteworthy is that the plot doesn‘t have a very Marvel-y feel to it. It is entertaining enough, yet I have a hard time buying into the idea that a man is trapped between our world and hell because of an awful act he committed that led to his own death and killed several others. Read more »
As we head into the holiday season, Agents of SHIELD decided to celebrate Pranksgiving this week. And while the pranks ranged from terrible to awful in terms of creativity, one character in particular got the last laugh.There have been a few episodes in which choosing the Agent of the Week has been somewhat difficult. But we are apparently in the midst of a stretch where the show tells us who it is by designing entire episodes around one agent. Read more »
Agents of SHIELD is back after a week off with an all-new episode and a temporary addition to the team, just because Skye is now firmly entrenched and we need someone whose loyalty needs questioning.And man, does Joss Whedon know how to pack a lot into a mid-season finale! There‘s a healthy balance of action, emotion and storyline, as well as a cliffhanger that won‘t be answered until next year (but it‘s only like a month, so let‘s not get overly dramatic about it). Read more »
We‘ve reached the halfway point (sort of) of Agents of SHIELD‘s inaugural run with the mid-season finale and our first cliffhanger.There are two potentially dead agents who are both certainly alive; a kidnapped Coulson whose fate is up to the whimsy of Raina, creepy Po and an entity known only as "the Clairvoyant;" a now-in-charge May issuing a mayday; and FitzSimmons mourning a perfectly good non-electronic tracking scent rendered useless by betrayal. Read more »
Get ready for another super villain on Agents of SHIELD -- and you might know who the character is if you‘re familiar with the Marvel/Iron Man universe. And over at Glee, Marlee Matlin has signed on for a role that gives her quite a bit of power. Read on for all the details, including casting news for Trophy Wife, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Neighbors, NCIS: Los Angeles, Elementary, The Big Bang Theory, New Girl and The Crazy Ones. Read more »
Welcome back, Agents of SHIELD!Agent Phil Coulson and the gang return from the winter hiatus with a bang, as "The Magical Place" is so packed with action it was difficult to take notes while watching. It‘s one of the best episodes to date, a happy sight as the inaugural season begins its second half.It doesn‘t let up from start to finish, pairing significant plot and character development with teamwork, fast-moving scenes and typical zingers (my favorites being Fitz‘s response when Ward compares applying the night-night supersoldier bracelet to riding a bull for eight seconds and the fact that Skye‘s and Simmons‘ safe word is "manscaping"). Read more »
Agents of SHIELD came back from its winter hiatus with a vengeance this week, giving us an action-packed episode that was heavy on both plot and character development. "The Magical Place" kept up a pretty fast pace, and the mission at hand -- to locate and rescue Coulson -- was a rousing success thanks to teamwork and strength maximization.Agents of SHIELD Recap: Agent Coulson‘s Resurrection is Revealed >>>But what did everyone contribute, and who was the star of the operation? Let‘s break it down. Read more »
Okay, I‘ll admit it. I didn‘t see it coming. I even knew that Donnie Gill is real-life Marvel villain Blizzard (okay, not real life, but you know what I mean). But I figured this would be the origin story of how he turned bad. I never saw the twist coming that he already was bad. Agents of SHIELD has a nice plot twist in its latest installment, entitled "Seeds," which is also supposed to reveal the sordid details of Skye‘s murky past. But while the episode is certainly entertaining, I have found myself left with more questions that answers. Read more »
Agents of SHIELD gave us a new supervillain in "Seeds" while also revealing some of Skye‘s backstory, but it did it in two separate missions that are hard to judge based on their varying levels of success.The main mission, which led Ward, Skye and FitzSimmons to the SHIELD academy to stop a string of ice attacks, could be considered an abject failure other than the fact that they did their best to minimize the damage. Read more »
The integration between the Marvel movie universe and Agents of SHIELD is expanding once again. ABC President Paul Lee announced that Lady Sif will be appearing in episode 15 at the ABC TCA Winter Press Tour. Read more »
Agent Phil Coulson has an important role on Marvel‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but he‘s different than we remember. As a SHIELD agent in the movies, he plays a vital role in holding the heroes together as a group. His death in The Avengers is the catalyst that sparks the heroes to defeat Loki and his band. When Coulson returns to SHIELD in the pilot of the television program, he finds the world a different place and he has a new job to do. His status as a level seven means he will solve problems that should be kept secret and out of the press. Read more »
I‘ll admit it: I was not sold on Agents of SHIELD when it began. I thought the first few episodes were a bit too formulaic and hollow, without any real excitement or character development. But I stuck with it, because the premise of building on the Marvel Cinematic Universe through television is such a good one, and because I love me some Joss Whedon. And lo and behold, SHIELD got better. It‘s improved in a lot of ways, managing to find its own path in the dense Marvel mythology, but this article is only going to discuss a few of them. So if you‘re wondering if you should give SHIELD a try, or if you should just stick with it, here are five reasons to keep watching.  Read more »
The description for the latest episode of Agents of SHIELD reads, "While seeking out the Clairvoyant, the team boards a train that appears to be heading toward doom," and I‘ll admit, I got a little excited about the possible wordplay significance.After all, capturing industrialist Ian Quinn is the main mission objective, and he bears a striking resemblance to one Victor Von Doom. A character of such magnitude would be a huge add to the series, though some explanations would obviously be necessary.Alas, "T.R.A.C.K.S." does not fulfill such lofty aspirations. But what it does do is deliver on an entirely different plane that far exceeded expectations. Read more »
Anyone who travels or commutes on a regular basis knows the conundrum. Should I take the train? It‘s cheaper than flying, but also much slower. It‘s faster and fancier than the bus, but also much more expensive. Usually, the factors for me are speed and price. If I‘m not getting there the quickest, I might as well spend the least amount of money.This is not the case in Europe, though, where a cross-country train ride is the equivalent of traveling between neighboring states. And such was the goal in "T.R.A.C.K.S." when our Agents of SHIELD team attempted to follow the path of a smuggled device from seller (CyberTek) to buyer (Quinn and the Clairvoyant).Agents of SHIELD Recap: All Aboard the Runaway Train >>>But much like train travel, this mission was full of ups and downs. It may have ended as a success despite being compromised from the start, but at what cost? Who gets credit and who gets blame? Let‘s break it down. Read more »
What in the hell was that? Seriously, does anyone know what we just saw?For those of you following along, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returned Tuesday from its Winter Olympic break with an episode called "T.A.H.I.T.I.," which aired exactly one month after the last episode, "T.R.A.C.K.S." This was a standalone episode following a two-week break, before which there were only two episodes that followed the Christmas break. Jeez, can you say H.I.A.T.U.S.? Read more »
Agents of SHIELD returned from its Olympic break with one clear mission -- save Skye. And as usual, it was accomplished without any team fatalities (unless you include the two Guest House guards who were likely SHIELD contracted).It was truly a team effort to save our wounded non-Academy-trained hacker, who was shot twice by now in-custody trafficker and businessman Ian Quinn on orders from the mysterious Clairvoyant. The seer of seers has put a lot of careful planning into figuring out how Coulson escaped death‘s clutches, but the real question is if Skye‘s rescue is playing right into his hands. Read more »
It‘s that time of year again. The calendar is turning to March, which means (hopefully) nicer weather, leprechauns, and brackets, brackets, brackets! In March we all go mad for pitting our favorite things against each other in bracket form, whether it‘s basketball teams or television shows. Read more »
This picture perfectly sums up the Agents of SHIELD mission in "Yes Men." No matter how front and center and smirking an agent can be, there‘s always an Asgardian lingering in the background, taking a page out of Thor‘s book and stealing the thunder.Jaimie Alexander‘s badass Lady Sif and Elena Satine‘s sexy Lorelei so dominated this one that SHIELD was basically background music and catalyst fodder to keep things moving. It‘s even difficult to determine the most valuable agent this time around, because all the contributions are so overshadowed. Read more »
The Buddy Battles are under way, and it‘s time to start making some hard choices. With the final bracket decided, now is when we whittle our favorite current Scooby gangs down to just the elite few. Read more »
Well, that had a certain cinematic feel to it, didn‘t it?The latest Agents of SHIELD episode, "Yes Men," had a little bit of everything, including two quasi-well-known superheroes from the Marvel Universe, friend-on-friend confrontations, advanced night-night guns, a guy named Rooster, fist fights, wild alien sex and a trip to Sin City. Oh yeah, and Skye‘s back and contributing again. Read more »
Following on the heels of The CW and NBC, ABC has now announced spring 2014 finale dates for its lineup of shows.Four shows will be airing their finales in April: Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, The Neighbors, Scandal and Last Man Standing. Scandal is ending its season earlier than usual due to star Kerry Washington‘s pregnancy. And the first three are ending even before May sweeps kicks off (which is April 24 to May 21). Read more »
American Horror Story hasn‘t shied away from casting big-name stars over the years, and next fall‘s Freak Show is no different. And there‘s a new supervillain in town on Agents of SHIELD, and he goes by the name of Blackout. Read on to find out all the details, including casting news for The Walking Dead, Grey‘s Anatomy, The Good Wife, Graceland, The Blacklist, CSI, NCIS and Mistresses -- which show is seeing the exit of a series regular this May? Read more »
I‘m honestly not even sure where to begin with this latest episode of Agents of SHIELD, but I‘ll kick things off with a "wow." I‘ve been preaching for weeks that the first season of the Marvel franchise is finally starting to find its footing and hold its own, and "The End of the Beginning" lives up to the billing.It‘s a fitting title, as the inaugural season draws to a close with the so-called in-show "Uprising" event that lets the multi-episode series play out more like a big-screen superhero flick than the small screen standalone serial that dominated the first half of the season. I find I‘ve been looking forward to each episode in sort of the same way I‘d anticipate a theatrical blockbuster, as SHIELD ramps up the action and adds characters that are well-known within the Marvel universe. Read more »
Every character from the latest episode of Agents of SHIELD belongs in one of the above categories, but the main problem in breaking down the mission is that we don‘t yet know who fits where. We‘ve determined that the Clairvoyant is actually a SHIELD agent with high-level security clearance, which basically makes everyone a suspect.This is the first time I am writing the debrief/agent of the week article without knowing who I‘m going to end up choosing as the star of the mission. So I guess we‘ll just see where "The End of the Beginning" leads us. Read more »
Agents of SHIELD has always existed in the same Marvel Universe as the movie, though in a limited way. The connection between the two previously consisted of mentions of the movies‘ events and the crossover of a few characters. That all changes after Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Read more »
Now that was intense.Who would have thought that Agents of SHIELD was just biding its time through the inaugural season, giving us serial episodes and peeks into the known Marvel Universe, all while waiting for the premiere of a blockbuster movie to really blow the doors off the joint and let all hell break loose. Read more »
Well, there‘s no questioning that Tuesday night‘s episode of Agents of SHIELD was a game-changer, and the reverberations are still being felt across the Marvel Universe (by those who have seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier and now those who haven‘t).Before we break down "Turn, Turn, Turn" by character contribution, I‘m struck by two things. The first is how well Whedon and Co. pulled off a major shakeup they knew was coming but could not foreshadow, and the second is just how sweet this cross-platform integration actually is. Read more »

In our latest Casting Bits roundup, we‘ve got a lot of big names about to guest star on our favorite shows. For one, there‘s Glee star Chris Colfer heading to Hot in Cleveland. And then there‘s Cobie Smulders and Samuel L. Jackson who are both reprising their Marvel roles on Agents of SHIELD. Read on for all the details, including casting news for Law and Order: SVU, New Girl, Suits, Grey‘s Anatomy, Castle and Once Upon a Time. Read more »
A war has broken out in what was formerly known as SHIELD. When Hydra‘s infiltration was revealed, friends became enemies and trust became dangerous. In "Providence," the betrayal of SHIELD runs deep when former agents team up with the enemy.Has Ward been an undercover Hydra agent this whole time? It‘s always possible that he‘s a double agent, but as bodies pile up that‘s unlikely. Check out these two sneak peeks for insight into Ward, plus a comment from Brett Dalton about his character. Read more »
The Marvel Universe is a mess in these troubling times, with lines blurred between good and evil and only a handful of SHIELD agents left to clean it all up. The latest episode of Agents of SHIELD isn‘t heavy on the action after last week‘s game-changing intense-a-thon, but the developments are just as significant."Providence" is two stories that stay separate until they have to converge -- about two organizations moving in different directions -- and it focuses more on how everyone is dealing with the state of affairs. Who is giving up and who stays the course? Who is trustworthy and who needs to be monitored? There are so many questions and so few answers that you can only look forward and wonder what‘s in store for the remainder of the inaugural season. Read more »
Well, that was easy.As far as determining the MVA for each particular Agents of SHIELD mission goes, this was probably the easiest so far in this inaugural season. I mean, no one really did anything that was commendable, except the head honcho. Read more »
