Fancy a train ride? The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. team sure did…and got much more then they bargained for when what was supposed to be a simple undercover op went horribly wrong. The show is finally upping its stakes with the action, humor, risk-taking (Skye?!) and hey! Was that Deathlok’s introduction? So much to talk about! But before we get into all that, let’s backtrack (see what I did there?) READ FULL STORY

First came love, then came being rejected in front of millions, then came dating 25 women in search for the right one, then came proposing to Catherine in Thailand, and THEN came marriage (on live TV). Welcome, rose lovers, to the Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara, where we just witnessed Sean and Catherine’s
we-finally-get-to-have-sex wedding day!
After dropping Tahiti on us last week, it was hard to say where this week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was going to take us – and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the result. The show effectively introduced another Marvel universe supervillian Blizzard, and gave us a lot of intel on Skye’s backstory mystery, so let’s dive in, just like the badass Melinda May would dive into a storm.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s midseason return finally gave us (and Coulson) the truth about Tahiti. Spoiler: It wasn’t such a dream vacation after all. Let’s get down to business.
Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the mid-season finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., stop reading now. READ FULL STORY
Let’s be real: the Lady Gaga & the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular is a cross-promotional commercial. Gaga gets to perform songs from her new album ARTPOP, and the Muppets remind us why we love them long enough to get excited for this spring’s big-screen Muppets Most Wanted. That doesn’t mean the special is boring — on the contrary, it’s delightful! Yet it’s still a commercial, making me feel the way I feel after watching a charming Black Friday ad: equal parts warm, fuzzy, cynical, and depressed by consumerism overtaking the so-called “holiday spirit.” But why fret? It’s Lady Gaga and the Muppets!
The “spectacular” kicks off with an introduction from Pepe the King Prawn, who thinks he’s starting his own special. Silly King Prawn, this isn’t your special — or even The Muppets Show that I desperately want back on TV — it’s a Gaga/Disney 90-minute promotional feature! In the real introduction, Gaga shares that the first time she fell in love was during the holidays. That’s sweet until she reveals that her first love was Kermit, which, sorry, is just weird. Sprinkled throughout the showcase are various sketches featuring the Muppets and special guests such as Kristen Bell and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. But the spectacle of this spectacular comes from the musical performances. Here’s a run-down on the night’s extravagant productions:
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… okay, so this isn’t Star Wars, but it sort of felt like it with the whole universe intro. However, in the S.H.I.E.L.D. world, things are a little less poetic and a lot more by-the-book, so here goes nothing: In ancient times, people believed in gods and such, which eventually evolved into myth and folklore. But as Coulson explained to Skye, these so-called gods were really just aliens. Example number one? The oh-so-dreamy (even May thinks so!) Thor and his Asgardian homies. But that’s enough history for now. Let’s get to the goods! READ FULL STORY
This week, my Tuesday and Wednesday nights looked eerily similar, and not just because I was sitting on my couch eating Chinese food and watching television.
On Tuesday’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the team headed to Russia to defuse a very large, very dangerous weapon. The very next night, my Arrow peeps discovered they needed to rescue one of their own from — what do ya know? — Russia. Plus, by the end of Arrow‘s hour, I was listening to talk of a serum that could be used to create an army of super soldiers. For a second, I was positive I was back in the S.H.I.E.L.D. universe talking about Centipede. But I wasn’t! I was on a boat in the middle of the ocean — in the middle of a universe where “superheroes” didn’t exist. What was happening?!
So after I realized that these were, in fact, two very different shows, one of which lives in the Marvel universe (S.H.I.E.L.D., obviously) and the other in DC Comics, I started to get a very bad headache. Not to mention that while reacting to both shows, I now have to deal with an annoying number of period-filled acronyms — S.H.I.E.L.D., A.R.G.U.S., H.I.V.E — not cool, guys. Basically, after having this realization, I only had one option: A compare-and-contrast, seventh-grade-style.

So last week’s episode helped me to realize that I actually care about these people, and this week confused/intrigued me. I’m now not only shipping Skyward, but I’m also semi-invested in Skye’s back story, and getting to be the same with Coulson (though not as much). Basically, I’m invested, and I have questions, so let’s get into this, shall we? READ FULL STORY
