The next phase of this season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is now underway, as noted in the subtitle LMD. Aida plots to once again possess the Darkhold, while keeping May captive and an LMD of her active with the team. Meanwhile a new Inhuman, Senator Nadeer’s brother Vijay, has emerged, and that’s only the start of this new beginning. Meet me after the jump for my review of “Broken Promises.”
Just so we don’t go cold turkey with our Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD addiction, ABC has provided us with a new digital-only series for the winter break – Slingshot. Not only do we get a spotlight on Yo-Yo (Slingshot is actually her character’s name in the comics, and she’s quickly become one of my favorite characters on the show), but we also get a bit of fill-in on what happened during the time between seasons three and four. Meet me after the jump, for my thoughts on Slingshot, the digital series.
Back from the dead, and back from Hell in the last episode, Ghost Rider and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are ready for the real enemy, the matter manipulating Elias Morrow. All agents are on board, including the big guns – Quake, Yo-Yo, and even Aida. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Laws of Inferno Dynamics.”
We have been bereft of new Doctor Who for an entire year (“The Power of the Daleks” doesn’t count), since the last Christmas special, “The Husbands of River Song,” a madcap and bittersweet conclusion to the River Song saga. To trump that adventure, showrunner Steven Moffat pulls a new rabbit from his hat – Doctor Who does superheroes. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Return of Doctor Mysterio.”
We have been given a very cool early Christmas present this year from the folks at Doctor Who. For the last few weeks on BBC America, and some time ago in select theaters, a new animation of a classic lost series of The Doctor battling the Daleks was created from surviving audio of the episodes. For the first time in fifty years, we can witness “The Power of the Daleks,” meet me after the jump for my review.
