It’s finale time, Evil Geeks! After a season that some said started off painfully slow and a roller-coaster of a back-end of the season, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD finally wrapped up its first season this week in typical Marvel Cinematic U fashion; with action, intrigue, plot twists, and a guest cameo. With SHIELD on the ropes and Hydra on the upswing, will Coulson and his chosen team be able to overcome the nefarious powerhouse trio of Garrett, Ward, and of course the cybernetic hench droid, Deathlok? Let’s get to the reviewing!

OK, so we’re almost to the end of the season for S.H.I.E.L.D. and I’ve got a two-part review here for you and all I can say is dammmmnnnn…. it’s really been a wild ride and has really opened up the Marvel Cinematic U in my opinion. The last place that C-Mart left us off is that May is gone, Scarface Ward is back and he’s super creepy and has killed Agent Koenig and has basically kidnapped Skye (although she was kinda playing him) and the team no longer has The Bus. Given the fact that we’re only a couple days from the end of the first season these episodes have kinda pulled out all the stops, so c’mon, keep on reading!
Hey there Evil Geeks, the craziness that has been Agents of Shield continues this week as we get a look at another Marvel U supervillain, we say goodbye to a very welcome recent addition who will be sorely missed, Ward continues to be an A-1 piece of crap, and we finally meet that special cellist in Phil Coulson’s life. Read on Agents of the Evil Geeks!
Hey There Fanboys and Geekgirls
I know that I’m a bit late with this, but damn I gotta talk about this past week’s S.H.I.E.L.D. This show has been a roller coaster as of late, so much so that we dedicated our last podcast to it in fact. Anyway this is where we’re at; coming right out of Cap 2, S.H.I.E.L.D. is in ruins and HYDRA has reared its ugly head and has infiltrated the organization. Our team has been jumping around looking for the Clairvoyant and come to find out that it’s been John Garrett all along and he’s had an inside man pulling some strings with none other than Grant Ward. So what can Coulson and company do now? Read on to find out!
Evil Geeks, it wasn’t that long ago, perhaps maybe 3 or 4 months back when this show was first getting off the ground that one of our readers said in the comment section that they were waiting for Agent’s of SHIELD to have a “HOLY SHIT!!!” moment to really get them into the story. I assured them that with Joss Whedon at the helm, this show would most certainly have a moment like that in store for the audience. After the first half of the season I was starting to worry that I would have to eat those words, but the second half of the season has been EXPLOSIVE beyond all hopes, with nearly every single episode giving us a jaw dropper. With surprise after surprise being rained down on us, would the Marvel U’s first foray into television be able to keep us in suspense? After Turn, Turn, Turn, the answer to that question is a resounding “YYYUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUPPPPPPP!!!!”
