‘Agents of SHIELD’ Season 1 Recap, Episode 10: ‘The Bridge’

Agents Of SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD came back from a one-week hiatus last night to drop its one and only December episode on us before heading out to the hills until January. TV executives call this a "mid-season finale", but that is a nonsensical concept, so let's call it "the Christmas hiccup" instead.

'The Bridge' marks an important point in the pacing of the season. The show's creators have used this episode to tie much of the first half together and propel us into the second half. In theory it should feel momentous. In practice, I was sadly underwhelmed.

‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 1 Recap, Episode 9: ‘Repairs’

Agents of Shield recap

Everyone get back on the plane, it's time for another budget-saving Agents of SHIELD bottle episode! After last week's Asgardian hijinx, we're once again bouncing around between the IKEA bunks of the boring SHIELD wingycarrier.

That's the bad news. The good news is that this was the first episode to give any real time or attention to Ming-Na Wen's Agent May. But did it tell us anything we didn't already know?

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep.1.08: ‘The Well’

Agents of SHIELD

 

What is it about former Star Trek actors that brings out the best in Marvel's Agents of SHIELD? Until this week I'd say the series' strongest episode was 1.05, "Eye-Spy," directed by Star Trek: Voyager's Roxann Biggs, aka B'Elanna Torres.

This week's episode was directed by Jonathan Frakes -- Star Trek: The Next Generation's William Riker -- and it was the new best episode of the series so far. More than that; it was the first episode I'd actually feel comfortable recommending to friends who gave up on the show after the lackluster pilot. (Or the lackluster second episode, or the lackluster third episode.)

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep.1.07: ‘The Hub’

Agents of SHIELD recap

The return of Agent Sitwell. The arrival of Agent Hand. These are the little things that make me happy, Agents of SHIELD. Was it really so hard to get to this place?

The seventh episode of Agents of SHIELD gave us our first real taste of SHIELD as a government agency since the pilot, and it was a better show because of it. It also developed the characters and pushed a couple of plots forward. Good job, Agents of SHIELD. We knew you had it in you.

Spoilers follow.

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep.1.06: ‘FZZT’

CA Agents Of SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD returned from a week off last night with a new episode that finally put the focus on one of its least developed characters. Obviously we're grading on a curve, there.

This being the sixth episode, I feel like I ought to now have a decent grasp on what drives all six of the show's main characters. Even with this episode, which puts the spotlight on Gemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), I still feel like I'm in the company of strangers. Spoilers follow.

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep.105: ‘Girl in the Flower Dress’

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD11

Episode five of Agents of SHIELD, "Girl in the Flower Dress." brings us almost a quarter of the way through the first season, and for the first time I didn't think the episode was better than last week's -- but I didn't think it was worse either. Has Agents of SHIELD found its plateau?

The main story this week wasn't as strong as last, but it compensated; this was the first episode since the pilot to really push any elements of the greater arc. For that reason, it was maybe the most satisfying episode yet.

SPOILERS FOLLOW.

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep. 1.04, ‘Eye-Spy’

CA Agents Of SHIELD

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to get a preview of this week's episode of Agents of SHIELD at New York Comic Con, alongside several hundred passionate fans of the show. My impression at the time was that episode 4, 'Eye-Spy', was easily the best episode yet.

However, I had to wonder if seeing the show on the big screen, surrounded by a cheering, hollering crowd, made me more forgiving than I would usually be. I was curious to see how the episode would hold up on a second viewing.

‘Don’t Touch Lola’: The Best Character On ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Made An Appearance At NYCC 2013

Lola top

No matter how you feel about the recently launched Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. television series (so far we've been disappointed, but still hold out hope), I think we can all agree on one thing: The best written, most entertaining and most well-defined character, by a pretty wide margin, is Lola. There are no vague, uninteresting mysteries associated with Lola. You know her motivations, and you know exactly why she's with SHIELD. And really, can you say that about any other member of Agent Coulson's team so far (okay, maybe Skye)?
