Spoilers ahead: Was there just a ghost on S.H.I.E.L.D.? Because I’m pretty sure there was a ghost on S.H.I.E.L.D. And that means that I’m confused on so many levels. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (1-10 of 20)
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
Guys, I’ve had a realization: I’m way more emotionally invested in this show than I thought. Sure, I’ve always shipped Skyward, but it’s more than that. I officially care about these S.H.I.E.L.D. folk, which means tonight’s episode was stressful. Let’s get to it! READ FULL STORY
Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines contemporary pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!
In last week’s column, I offered a few ideas for improving Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the just-okay non-superhero Marvel spinoff with tantalizingly limitless potential. Said ideas ran the gamut from reasonable (Solve the Coulson mystery) to outlandish (Make everyone evil) to the extremely unlikely (bring in the Black Knight)! In response, readers posted their own exciting SHIELD-reboot ideas. Let’s take a look at some of the best. READ FULL STORY
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a resolutely okay TV show. It’s neither great nor terrible, neither inspired nor boring. This in itself is an accomplishment. SHIELD — let’s just call it SHIELD, okay? — sits at an uneven borderland between a wide variety of corporate realities. It’s an unprecedented in-continuity TV spinoff-sequel to the equally unprecedented Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s produced by Marvel Studios and airs on ABC, which are in turn both owned by Disney.

Eyeballs! Aliens! Night guns (or something)! Welcome to this week’s dose of S.H.I.E.L.D.
What started as a diamond heist with 55 military men wearing red Jabbawockeez masks and newsboy caps quickly turned into a S.H.I.E.L.D. case after Coulson revealed that the thief behind one severed hand and $30 million worth of missing jewels was an ex-agent once trained by Coulson himself. Viewers, meet Akela Amador, the one-time S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who appeared to have gone to the dark side by robbing people with her eyes closed… thanks to telepathy? The details were yet to be determined. READ FULL STORY
Battle of the Fitzest: The Fitzes of 'Pretty Little Liars,' 'Scandal,' and 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' face off
Fitz is a name that almost never escaped my lips growing up. I’ve never known someone named Fitz, and my favorite TV characters tended to go by Ryan, Cohen, Chandler, or Riggins. So when I recently started watching Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and was introduced to a rocket scientist named Fitz, I stopped to think: There’s another Fitz in my life?! I’m already in love with two of them (and a little skeptical of one). I’ve got Ezra Fitz from Pretty Little Liars, who’s my favorite character on the show … or was. I’m still not really sure what’s up with him. And then there’s the incredibly sexy President Fitzgerald Grant on Scandal. How did my life become so Fitz-filled? I have no idea, but I’m not complaining.
So here’s the thing about my Fitzes. Not only do they all have great names, but they’re all pretty powerful in their own way, which is why I thought it’d be fun to compare their skills in an epic battle. After all, with a name as unusual as Fitz, surely there isn’t enough room for all of them (except in my heart). In no particular order, here’s a quick run down of everyone’s battle-ready traits: READ FULL STORY
