A few episodes ago, I had a feeling that there was an explicit similarity between Phil Coulson and Sarge: his devotion to his team and in return, their loyalty. As we know from last week's episode and this week's thrilling co...   read

I don't think I've ever experienced whiplash myself, but going back-to-back with last week's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and then to this one is giving me a good idea of what it feels like. After two focused and experim...   read

There's a bit of irony with how Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in its infancy used to be unfavorably compared to Firefly. Over five years later, and here we have an episode that will have me enthusiastically declare S.H.I.E.L.D. to b...   read

There's a bit of a whiplash effect every time Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns. Probably more than anything else in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, S.H.I.E.L.D. essentially goes through a soft reboot every single...   read
