Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Alien Revelaed (Article) - 11/20/2014 6:46:09 AM

 Errr..... kinda but not quite.  Spidey - Sony, X-men and FF are Fox's movie properties.  True story.

Mania Box Office Report: DUMB and Dumbest Too Win (Article) - 11/17/2014 11:56:19 PM

 There was Son of Mask......don't watch it.  Just, don't.

Total.....,.$75,894,627 - Budget 68,000,000     .....   minus the denominator.......carry the one.....cotangent........pi..........I dunno.   Let's just say that I think that they got their money back.

 

 

 

The Walking Dead: Consumed Review (Article) - 11/17/2014 11:49:30 PM

 I.........liked the episode.  I was more focused on how the relationship had evolved between Carol and Darryl.   The "You were a boy, and now you're a man." line really hit it.  I found it more interesting on what they didn't do when they were finally alone and on a bed together.  (Yes, I am talking about the horizontal mambo)  That is not what this relationship is about, it is different in a way that has been shaped by the world around them.  Pretty cool how it is playing out.

Noah is fast becoming a scene stealing character, very well acted.  This in a Darryl/Carol centric episode!  Big props to stealing Darryl's crosssbow and still be breathing after your next meeting!

Many thanks to Rob for getting this WD review up for the episode.  It's almost midway break time!

 

 

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Writing on the Wall Review (Article) - 11/14/2014 9:22:23 PM

 Very good storyline progress this week, I really liked it.

Ward is a better character every single week it seems.

Strange that Flash, which comes on after MAOS has a review first thing the next morning, while this show with a bigger audience gets one a few days later.  (Walking Dead which is the biggest show ever didn't even get one this week.)  The only reason I say so is because I do enjoy the reviews and especially the maniacs comments section.

Back on track, I said out loud that it was Attilan when they showed it, and coincedentally enough, this weeks Hulk and the agents of SMASH episode was about Attilan.  Maybe not coincedance.

 

First Look at THANOS VS. HULK #1! (Article) - 11/11/2014 4:48:16 AM

 I'm in for this ride.  With only four issues, it should have a breakneck pace.  I'd like for a bunch more Hulk vs " " mini series.

The Walking Dead: Slabtown Review (Article) - 11/3/2014 10:03:15 PM

 I wouldn't say that Beth is my least favorite, just the most withdrawn, in the way that she rarely outwardly expresses her position on a situation.  She has a knowing look, built from a growing experience of having to deal with the new world.  My least favorite would be her sister.  I'm not sold on the decisions made by her on the show.

I liked the episode, and allowed for a step into the next chapter for the group.  Hints and guesswork will move it along at a decent enough pace.  Well done explanation of the hierachy within the new group, a little too murky at the decisions made to ensure the pecking order.  The rape could have been done matter-of-fact, industrial, to make it more shocking, but it would have felt more like Terminus.  No, this is a different kind of crazy to be found in the world that they now find themselves in.  I liked it, as it showed a bit of shame for Dawn not to come right out and say it.

I agree with the Noah suggestion as it makes perfect sense to keep the storyline moving at a great pace.

With Carol in there now, the only question is how many of Dawn's little cadre survive after she wakes up?

 

 

 

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: A Fractured House Review (Article) - 10/30/2014 8:58:46 PM

 It looked kinda like sTArwARs.  Very nice.

I had the feeling that Coulson had already anticipated his escape.  Hell, I did and I'm not the head of SHEILD.  

I like the Fitzsimmons scenes so far.  I also like that they are getting help for their situation from another member of the team.  It integrates them into the team as a part of the storyline.  

Skye is continuing to improve as a main character and storyline as well.  

 

The Walking Dead: Four Walls and a Roof Review (Article) - 10/28/2014 10:40:47 AM

 Wasted opportunity with Martin.  Tyreese could have had a great redemption moment there.

It has to be Beth with Darryl.  She will shift the focus for the group to a diferent destination than D.C.

I liked the episode, leaving the group in a different state of mind from last episode.  Two groups means two intersecting storylines which could lead to faster pacing.

The best moment was the return of the katana.  Michonne is whole again!

 

 

 

More Avengers: Age of Ultron for AGENTS of SHIELD (Article) - 10/25/2014 1:22:33 PM

 Morsels.  They will continue to give out morsels.  It is a tried and true formula, and Disney/Marvel have it perfected.  No filmshot of the Vision has leaked so far........but there is some artists concepts and sketches that have made the rounds.  I do hold out hope that as the antici..........pation builds for the flick that the numbers will also build for MAoS.  Loving that show and the expanded U.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: A Hen in the Wolf House Review (Article) - 10/23/2014 11:08:58 AM

 I liked the episode, but didn't love it.  Bobbi being the ex was an unexpected connection to the team.  She is a good addition to the team in what amounted to a cast building episode.  The Marvel universe is expanding character by character.  I am really starting to get into this show and the steady progress that it makes every week.  Every episode doesn't have to have a mindblowing twist or guest star, just keep going forward.  The core sheild team is pretty solid now.
