Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Out of the Past television review

With the team now in the 1950s, “Out of the Past” takes advantage of damage to Coulson‘s (Clark Gregg) LMD systems to offer a film noir episode. Damage to his optics renders nearly the entire episode in black and white while damage to other systems meas his thoughts will continue to echo around his skull providing narration for the events which follow. As with the other episodes of the season, the mission remains the same: keep history on the right path. This week that means helping Agent Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) deliver vital technology to S.H.I.E.L.D. before it falls in to the hands of either Hydra or the Chronicoms. As to the fate of Sousa, who history says dies at the end of his successful mission, whether or not to meddle with his fate offers a much harder choice.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - The New Deal television review

It’s been over two years since I sat down to watch an episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. which I was astonished to discover was still on the air. Set in New York City during the early 1930s, features the remaining agents tracking Chronicoms who plan on stopping S.H.I.E.L.D. from ever coming into existence by altering the timeline. The episode has fun with the look of the era, particularly in styling Daisy‘s (Chloe Bennet) hair and clothing. The season premiere also fixes a mistake with the show since it’s inception by having the version of Coulson (Clark Gregg) be a Life Model Decoy for the now dead (again) agent. The choice to allow the LMD to know what it is allows for some internal conflict within the character and also full use of its enhanced strength against the threat of the Chronicoms.

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.
