Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S02 E11: Aftershocks

ag1

And we’re back, after the eight-part “Agent Carter” event, we are back in the present and catching up with “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” When last we saw our heroes, the hidden city had been found, and the Diviner had been activated. People died, and people changed. The Doctor was revealed as Mister Hyde, his daughter Skye as Daisy ‘Quake’ Johnson, and no one has yet uttered the word ‘Inhumans’ …yet. Meet me after the jump, see what they become, and read my thoughts on “Aftershocks.”

Avengers Assemble S02 E13: Thanos Triumphant

av1

Finally it’s here, the moment we have all been dreading and waiting for with anxious anticipation all this second season of “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” – Thanos is on Earth with the Infinity Gauntlet, and only the Avengers stand in his way. As Stan ‘The Man’ Lee used to say in situations like this, “‘Nuff said!” Be prepared for the battle of the century, or based on this series’ track record, the disappointment of the century… Either way, meet me after the jump for my review of “Thanos Triumphant!”

The Walking Dead S05 E12: Remember

twd-s2e12-remember

On last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead,” Rick and the team had been invited to join the Alexandria Safe Zone, but our weary Spartans have been burned twice; Woodbury and Terminus. Will Team Rick be able to put down their weapons, to trust, to blend in? Aaron thinks they can. Sometimes, it’s hard to let down your guard. Sometimes, peace is scarier than war.

On last week’s episode of “12 Monkeys,” the timeline was restored for Cole, but Cassie was forced into her own version of a bad LSD trip. Luckily, Cole and Cassie have a new sidekick; sharp shooting Aaron. Our team has to find the virus before someone sets it free. Are we ready for this weeks’ time travel swing dance?

Marvel’s Agent Carter S01 E08: Valediction

Here we are at the last episode of “Marvel’s Agent Carter.” I hesitate to say this is the season finale and no decision has been made yet for more, but let me be the first to say I wouldn’t mind, and would welcome another period piece break with these characters next year with the also as-yet-unrenewed “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Let’s enjoy it while it lasts, and meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Valediction.”

Sleepy Hollow S02 E18: Tempus Fugit

SLH_218_Rewrite_30sec_Atag_2500_1280x720_400994371908

In last week’s episode of “Sleepy Hollow,” Henry died, witchy Katrina did a time travel spell and, accidentally dragged Abbie with her. Abbie is out of her element and in trouble, but Captain Crane doesn’t know her. Time flies, but except for the outstanding acting done by Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie, season two seemed to drag on and on. The show had a winning formula, but someone messed with it. Tonight, I hear, there’s going to be a lot of action and intrigue. Someone will die. Tonight is the season two finale. All my fellow sleepy heads and I are hoping there will be a season three.

Avengers Assemble S02 E12: Widow’s Run

av1

One of the dumbest conceits about superhero comics is the concept of keeping dangerous items and weapons confiscated from super-villains in the headquarters of the superheroes. How nice of the heroes to keep all the goodies in one place, right? Here’s what happens when Thanos comes calling for the Infinity Stones. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on the newest episode of “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” – “Widow’s Run.”

The Walking Dead S05 E11: The Distance

the-walking-dead-season-5-the-distance

Last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead” was a series of epiphanies and emotional growth for all our characters. Although Daryl didn’t agree with Rick’s description of the group, I did. They have become the walking dead. They do what needs to be done and, with a little luck, they will survive to live another day. While Daryl and the others face their grief, a stranger appears in their midst. What Aaron (Ross Marquand) has to offer sounds too good to be true. Read the rest of this entry

12 Monkeys S01 E06: The Red Forest

Time travel, we have learned, is not an exact science. There are paradoxes within paradoxes that can throw a monkey wrench, no pun intended, into the works. On last week’s episode of “12 Monkeys,” Cassie was kidnapped by Pallid Man and Cole was splintered to an alternate universe where West 7 had control of the facility. We may need to slow our time travel dance routine tonight. Try not to be erased. Read the rest of this entry

The GAR! Podcast: JAG! With Special Guest Jenn Walker

gar1

Biff Bam Pop! presents The GAR! Podcast, the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It’s an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world. This week, Ray is too sick to talk, so I’ve recruited The Bride, Jenn Walker, to sub for him. We’re talking about the big “Saturday Night Live” anniversary special, the new Ghostbusters, and even comics, and television, along with a new spin on all the usual stuff. See and hear more after the jump.
