Carry on our Wayward Sons: Supernatural Season 3 – Poison Breaks Down The One Where Dean Gets Bitten
Welcome back to the overview of Eric Kripke’s Supernatural; the monster-of-the-week mystery drama series about the Winchester brothers Sam and Dean.
We last saw them closing a Hell Gate and killing their longtime foe in Season Two; now let’s take a look at what’s in store for them in:

Although I don’t agree with a lot said in this summation. I have a hard time looking at these stories by reducing them to political correctness issues, which drives me crazy (this is one aspect of writing, not the whole job), this is a good summation of the general feeling I had after the show. Give it a read. Lady Geek Girl is a very interesting blog that if you aren’t following, you should.
Well, this was going to be a Once Upon A Time review, but I’m still not caught up in that, so I’m turning my tender attentions to the polarizing first season of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first foray into television: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was so hyped by fans and Marvel alike that, in retrospect, I’m not surprised we were initially disappointed. Coming off the success of both The Avengers and Iron Man 3, I suppose we were in a place where the MCU delivering a terrible story seemed even less likely than DC casting a Wonder Woman. Oh, how times have changed.
Now that I’ve watched the whole season, I wouldn’t consider it irredeemably bad, although I was certainly tempted to drop it several times midseason. I just wish it had been shorter and tighter, and had gotten more interesting more quickly.
Basically, I’m not…

Because I don’t want to spread spoilers about last night’s Agents of SHIELD, I thought it best to reblog an interview with the writers and show runners. Enjoy, and I look forward to September.
He’s a wonderful summation of where we are in Agents of SHIELD. It’s been a rocky road but one that I feel is turning around. Sci-Fi and Fantasy have always had a tough time finding its legs on TV. Remember, most thought shows like Star Trek: the Next Generation (which did not find its legs until season 3) and Game of Thrones, which struggled through 6 episodes of exposition, would be off the air midseason. How wrong they were.
It almost seems silly reviewing an episode of ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ this late in the season, but the show’s gotten so darn good that it seems right to make this my first review. I am, however, watching it at the US pace, so come back in couple of weeks if you’re watching on Channel 4.
That aside, thoughts on the penultimate episode of ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, and how incredibly this show has improved as a whole, coming up after the jump.

Well, there’s another Agents of SHIELD episode. I enjoyed it as much as the other episodes of recent. There was a mention of Man-Thing. Sadly I still feel that the show is a glorified appendix of the MCU, and it is becoming more evident, even as the acting and writing gets better.
Good guys, bad guys, S.H.I.E.L.D., Hydra, sometimes it’s hard to tell who’s who, and it’s even harder to tell that when you’re talking about the deadly world of espionage and double agents. Everyone lies for a living, no one tells the whole truth, so who can you trust? On this series we have seen more than a few turncoats and double agents, and it’s not over. Meet me after the jump for my review of the aptly titled “Nothing Personal.”

Last night’s Arrow had some stunning stunts, great battle sequences, and Summer Glau. Summer Glau is always a plus. (Sorry to get all teenage boy you.) Anyway, this was a great episode but Laurel is the worst! She knows about Ollie and says nothing. Come on, Lance, I’ve had it with your pious waffling!
‘Agents of SHIELD’ postmortem: Jeff Bell and Jeph Loeb on what [spoiler’s] new role means for the series
Here’s a post mortem of last night’s episode of Agents of SHIELD. As much as I love the premise of this show… I am beginning to think it is not working out. I kind of feel it is all filler for the films. The characters are great but it just feels insular. Like an appendix for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
