Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - All the Comforts of Home TV review

Despite having made it back to the present Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team appear to be still stuck in the inevitable timeloop of the Earth’s destruction and surrender to the Kree Empire. Aside from the authorities, there’s also a death squad after the remaining agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. inexplicably led by General Hale‘s (Catherine Dent) bitchy teenage daughter Ruby (Dove Cameron). The final scene’s reveal of the fact is surprising, but more from a WTF is going on perspective than any kind of clever reveal through good writing.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Together or Not at All TV review

“Together or Not at All” finally unites most of the time-displaced fugitive Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., if only for part of a single episode as the team will split-up yet again before the episode’s end. We get more of the family turmoil between the whiny Kasius (Dominic Rains) and uppity Faulnak (Samuel Roukin) that mercifully comes to an end with death of the later. In fact, there’s quite a bit of Kree-on-Kree violence as Sinara (Florence Faivre) murders Maston-Dar (Remington Hoffman) despite the fact that the other warrior could have been useful in the capture of Daisy (Chloe Bennet).

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Rewind television review

“Rewind” is the first episode of the show’s Fifth Season that I’m relatively happy with (even if it still leaves quite a bit unexplained). Leaving the alternate future, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. rewinds to the moment in which the rest of his team where taken and follows the path of Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) from arrest to finding his way to the future himself. The episode introduces us the alien Enoch (Joel Stoffer as a character pretty much stolen from a Hellboy comic) and a young human (Lexy Kolker) whose hazy vision of the future is responsible for the rest of the cast being thrown decades into the future, despite the fact that their return to the present will undoubtedly change events to make the future they are currently stuck in completely irrelevant.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - A Life Earned TV review

The misadventures of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. lost in time and space continues as adapting to their surroundings has negative effects on Mack (Henry Simmons), Daisy (Chloe Bennet) meets the Kree overlords and discovers their plans for Inhumans, May (Ming-Na Wen) gets her ass kicked, and the rest of the team stumbles around the space station for an hour (give or take a few minutes for commercials). One reveal that “A Life Earned” does give us is the identity of the man behind the mask we saw back in the first episode of this season. As to why he’s been avoiding his friends since their arrival… um, that’s less clear.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Orientation TV review

Okay, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is officially out of ideas. Tell me if this sounds familiar, Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team wake to discover they’ve been transported to a mysterious new world and will spend several episodes (about half a season, maybe) trying to find their way home? Yeah, that was last season’s second-half arc. It’s always where this season begins with the team abducted and shot into the future awakening aboard a Kree prison ship and struggling (and failing) to discover how and why they ended up in their current predicament.
