Although Season 5 still feels like the actual final season, Season 7 of Agents of SHIELD is at least a marked improvement over 6 and does a good job of basically taking a bunch of characters that have been developed to their natural end and just having a bit of a laugh with them. That’s not to say the series didn’t have its moments of more seriousness, but this did feel like the writers, cast and crew were all just having fun because they found themselves with a seventh season they weren’t really expecting… With that all said, let’s take a look!Continue reading
Agents of SHIELD Season 6 was sort of not meant to happen. The team wrapped up the whole show at the end of Season 5 and wrote off the central character of Phil Coulson. Suddenly they find themselves renewed for two more seasons (though length-wise it’s one season split in half…) and this is what they come up with: Evil Phil Coulson lookalike, ignore the fact that this is supposed to be happening in the MCU, and more space stuff! Does this approach work? Well…
Agents of SHIELD Season 5 is a mixed bag. They sadly dropped the three mini arcs idea from the previous season and went for a split, though with the two halves heavily dependent on each other. There were plenty of call-backs and pay-offs during this season, and an ending that would make you think it was the overall end, but there’s still more on the way! Anyway, let’s take a look then, at a season that spanned space, the future and beyond! … Well, actually, just space, the future and present day. Still impressive though!
Agents of SHIELD’s Fifth Season comes to a close, and boy, it has a lot of twists and turns, as well as pay-offs to long-running storylines. I really enjoyed this string of episodes, and if this ended up being the overall finale it would have been fine as well. As it stands a smaller-episode-count Sixth season has been confirmed for next year, so… anyway, let’s take a closer look at how Season 5 ended!
Agents of SHIELD return to the present in order to stop the apocalypse in this middle chapter of Season 5, with some elements of their time in the future coming along with them. As the middle it does its job of setting up the end, and it also gives us plenty of good story moments too, including a twist with Fitz that was particualry great TV. So let’s have a deeper look into it, shall we?
Agents of SHIELD’s fifth season gets off to an unconventional start, being set not only in space, but in a dystopian future where most of the world is in rubble. That sounds like a spoiler, but that’s just the setting! Plus that doesn’t even include the Kree, who appear en masse here. So let’s have a look at this ten-episode arc that seemingly acts the prologue to the bigger story to tell…
I wasn’t sure whether or not to do an overall review for this season of Agents of SHIELD. It was perfectly segmented into three arcs, with each having been covered in separate reviews on this site, but there are over-arcing themes and plots that can be looked at, not to mention an overall look as to whether the season as a whole is worth tracking down… Plus, I like consistency, so there! With that said, let’s take a closer look!
The final third of Agents of SHIELD’s fourth season is pretty much “Agents of SHIELD does The Matrix”, though with some alternate timeline stuff thrown in. Then the last few episodes wrap up things nicely, before setting up a big new plot twist for the next season. So let’s have a better look at this third “arc”, shall we?
Agents of SHIELD play a game of “who can you trust?” as people start to get replaced by Life Model Decoys in this second of three story arcs this season. Despite the unoriginal concept they actually play with it really well and create a fun story. Phew! Let’s take a look.
Agents of SHIELD’s fourth season is split into three distinct but connected arcs, and judging by the first one, this was the right way to go! Plus, we finally see the MCU’s version of Ghost Rider… both the newer version and the classic (briefly)…
