"AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D." AND THE DISAPPOINTMENT OF SEASON TWO (2014-2015)
I might as well put my cards on the table. I did not like Season Two of "AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.". In fact, I almost despised it. But what I despised even further is this belief among television viewers and critics that Season Two was an improvement over the series’ first season. This told me that today’s society has no real concept of what constitutes good or bad storytelling.
After the Season One finale, (1.22) "Beginning of the End", first aired, I made a prediction...
"AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D." SEASON TWO - AT MID-POINT
Ever since the second season of Marvel's "AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.", many television viewers and critics have waxed lyrical over their belief over the series' improvement from Season One. And yet . . . the ratings for the show seemed to reflect differently from this view. Regardless of the opinions of others or the ratings, I have my own views about the show's Season Two.
I am going to be blunt. I do not like Season Two of "AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.". In fact, it has turned out to be a major disappointment...
I just finished watching the latest “AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.” episode, [i](2.10) “What They Become”[/i[ . . . and I am filled with rage.
CAST MEMBER KILLED
The series just killed off Antoine Triplett, the character portrayed by B.J. Britt. The other black character on the show, Alphonse MacKenzie, is currently some kind of Inhuman zombie. The ironic thing is that both B.J. Britt and Henry Simmons were seriously underused this season, and Mutant Enemy fucked them over even more in the past two episodes.
"AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D." (2.01) "Shadows" Commentary
Ohmigod! Did "AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D." lose its sense of humor? I realize that the show is supposed to take a darker turn, but they seemed to be overdoing it.
After an hour of viewing of the Season Two premiere, (2.01) "Shadows", I realized that the only flash of real humor came from Antoine "Trip" Triplett. The episode revealed that Jemma Simmons left the agency during hiatus. And we do not know the circumstances that led her to finally leave. This is a scenario that should have happened either...
Ever since the middle of Season One of Marvel's "AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.", there has been a fandom dedicated to the relationship between two of the series' characters: former hackivist/turned S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Skye (no surname mentioned) and Agent Grant Ward. And despite the amount of attention dedicated to this potential romance on the Internet and in the media, I have found myself wondering if I should support it or not.
Below is a list of my top five favorite episodes from Season One of Marvel's "AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.". Created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen; the series stars Clark Gregg.:
TOP FIVE FAVORITE EPISODES OF "AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D." SEASON ONE (2013-2014)
1. (1.17) "Turn, Turn, Turn" - All hell breaks loose when the events of "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER" leads to the downfall of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the exposure of HYDRA moles within their ranks.
So as we all found out Agent Triplett is the grandson of a howling commando. Seeing as the only proof that we have is that the only African American in the howling commandos to fight Hydra was Gabe Jones (though there is no proof that he was the only african american) but yeah, That his is grandfather and I find that amazingly cool.
Gabe Jones: In 1943, Jones was captured by HYDRA and placed in a cell with other allied prisoners. When Captain America single-handedly assaulted the facility in which he was prisoner, Jones, along with his companions, broke free and wreaked havoc on...
Okay. So i haven't written an article on here in forever and the recent events have me reeling. First off, everyone on here knows that Agent Grant Ward is my baby. i love him more than anything, Since episode one I was in love with him. His demeanor, his look, his gracefulness his attitude. To me he could do no wrong but after finding out that Hydra had infiltrated SHIELD and Grant is working for them. I don't know anymore.
First. I have this thing where I don't think he's actually working for Hydra, that maybe he and Coulson planned something when he spoke to him and told him...
"AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.": THE LAST STAND AGAINST MEDIOCRITY
The age of serial drama or adventure is over. It is over. I came to this conclusion after learning the dismal ratings for the last episode of ABC's "AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D." called (1.10) "The Bridge". And ironically, my statement is not a criticism directed at the series or its latest episode.
I recently learned that the ratings for "The Bridge" had dropped considerably. Many fans would see this as a sign of the show's not-so-sensational quality. I realize that [b]"AGENTS OF...
