Watching this for the first time. It’s not bad. It is aimed at a younger audience. I am already digging the fact that the Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D. are involved with the show. While I write this, I am also watching the show. At this point I won’t hold my breath for Dum Dum Dugan to make an appearance.
The Howling Commandos was one of the best things that Marvel has put out in years. Having said that, it was also a short lived title. So seeing some of them show up in the animated universe is a treat.
This direct to video presentation is entertaining enough, but don’t expect anything too deep. It’s fun for what it is. If you like Doctor Strange, the Hulk, the Howling Commandos, and don’t mind simplistic plots, then this show is for you. It really is worth a watch.
Nothing against other companies, I am a mainly a DC & Marvel guy. Money is always tight so limits need to be observed so I stick with the big two. Having said that, most of what those two are putting out has not been to my liking. Just not my sort of thing. The up side is that I don’t spend my hard earned credits on the titles that I am no longer into. Now back up until my final days of actual collecting (physical issues) I would stick it out and buy everything. Well, no longer. Continue reading →
I’ll be sad to see Chris Evans leave the role of Steve Rogers but if the movies follow the eventual plot following the Winter Soldier then it will be fluidly awesome. Chris seems like an awesome guy and I’ve been a fan of his since the first FF movie where he played Johnny Storm, the Human Torch. It’s kind of cool to find out that he is more like that character than Steve Rogers. It just says something about his acting ability and dedication to his craft. In what ever he does, I wish him success.
The months of waiting for Marvel’s gents of S.H.I.E.L.D. came to an end last night. This show had just enough of the humor, action and charm that we have come to expect from anything out of Marvel Studios. The show rested almost completely on the shoulders of Agent Coulson and he doesn’t even flinch under that weight. There is already a secret mentioned early in the show, something that Coulson must never find out. What is this secret? Is Coulson a clone? Is he a Life Model Decoy Android? Perhaps he is not even alive. Time will tell and I will be there every week to follow along and find out.
Tonight is the big night. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiers tonight on ABC at 8 PM. I can’t wait to see what Marvel does after a prime-time absence of a few decades. The last Marvel show was probably The Incredible Hulk. They’ve produced a few made for TV movies since then but nothing that great. Back in the early 2000’s there was a show called Mutant X that was produced by FOX but had NOTHING to do with any Marvel property other than Mutants. Now the time for apologies for comic book geekery is at an end. Superheroes and comic book plots are very mainstream now and that is awesome. Tune in tonight to show your support 🙂
