Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S02 E05: A Hen In The Wolf House

agents of shieldBest. Episode. Ever.

Yes, that’s the lead for this week’s column regarding the Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. television series, as I stand in for regular S.H.I.E.L.D. columnist Glenn Walker, who is currently enjoying a much-deserved holiday aboard the Trisklelion this week.

Now, I know that some of you may shrug your shoulders and utter a hollow “meh”, thinking that the series hasn’t been all that interesting, and that you kind of tuned out at some point last year. The truth is that ever since the three quarter mark of last season, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been in an upward trajectory and this season, specifically, has been absolutely outstanding. It’s almost like it didn’t know what to be at its’ beginning, was then a marketing tool for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and has now finally found it’s own legs.

I repeat: tonight’s episode, I dare say, has been the best one yet.

Follow me after the jump and, with all of the Tuesday night action, intrigue and revelations, I’ll tell you why!

The Walking Dead S05 E02: Strangers

untitled

Played like the second half of a Super Bowl game, last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead” showed how Team Cattle royally kicked Team Butcher’s butt, and we can thank Carol aka Wonder Woman for that victory. Now if we can only have Carol dispose of ISIS. Carol could do this with one arm tied behind her back. On the run again, Team Rick needs to find supplies, but will it be worth the risk?

Writer Jamie Mathieson (“Being Human,” “Dirk Gently,” and Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel) takes his second shot at “Doctor Who” after last week’s episode “Mummy on the Orient Express.” Rather than time or space, Jamie takes aim at dimension here in this week’s episode, for what may be one of the better stories of the season so far. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Flatline.”

American Horror Story: Freak Show S04 E02: Massacres and Matinees

american-horror-story-freak-show-character-poster-finn-wittrock

One of the highlights of last week’s episode of “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” other than that freaking scary clown was watching how different Bette and Dot Tattler are from each other. As twins, they share most experiences that other twins do, but conjoined; their experiences must be shared simultaneously and unwillingly and that my little lot lice, sucks. The side show performers did what was needed to protect the twins. Will there be repercussions?  Whatever you do, keep away from the clown.
