The fourth season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been a wild one, from the debut of Ghost Rider to killer LMDs to the Secret Empire world of Agents of Hydra, the ride has been intense. Now it ends here in a season finale that’s sure to go out with a bang. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “World’s End.”
One of the things we love here at Biff Bam Pop! is books, probably because we’re all writers as well as readers. Therefore I’d like to suggest some books here that folks who regularly read our website might also enjoy reading, perhaps because some are by us, and some by friends, and some we just really dig. Meet me after the jump for the Gift of Reading.

Having already been hooked on the series because of Andy Burns‘ book, Wrapped in Plastic: Twin Peaks, I accidently pulled up a link that featured the deleted scenes from the film.
