Marvel’s Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. is… So Good!

marvels-agents-of-shield-51f33a448f8b1

Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films, as he assembles a team of new S.H.I.E.L.D agents. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. That’s right, Coulson lives!

Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage; Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), expert pilot and martial artist; Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), brilliant engineer; Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), genius bio-chemist; and new recruit and computer hacker, Skye (Chloe Bennet).

So far the show has been awesome, with fan favorite tidbits like Coulson’s flying car L.O.L.A., a cameo from Nick Fury himself Samuel L. Jackson,  Cobie Smulders as a meaner and leaner Agent Hill, and mentions of our favorite superheroes. Joss Whedon has created another brilliant addition to not only the Whedonverse, but a great addition to Marvel’s as well. I’m ready to be recruited!

Sleepy Hollow is ghoulishly good fun

2013-07-19-sleepyhollow_sdcc-533x808

In this modern-day twist on the Washington Irving classic, Ichabod Crane played by Tom Mison, and his nemesis the headless horseman are resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time.

As Ichabod finds himself in 2013’s Sleepy Hollow, he discovers a town he no longer recognizes and grapples to understand. Teaming up with Lt. Abigail Mills played by Nicole Beharie, a young cop who has her own supernatural experiences, the two embark on a mission to stop the horseman and other evils that has awoken along with Ichabod and that now is seeping into this once-sleepy town.

Untold stories from the Revolutionary War blend with modern conspiracies and the supernatural in this incredibly fun show. It blends the talents of Len Wiseman, Roberto Orci, and Alex Kurtzman and creates a show that blends the creepy with good fun drama.

Watch this show, you’ll be happy you did!

It’s fall…kind of

20131006-220800.jpgSo it’s finally fall here in Florida. Well, kind of. The temperature falls to 77-80 degrees Fahrenheit in the mornings and evenings. Not that we actually HAVE a fall in Florida so to speak. No changing leaves , no nippy chill in the air. Just a few moments of non sweltering heat each day.

I’m looking forward to all of my television shows returning and some new ones starting. Really looking forward to Sleepy Hollow and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Avengers 2: The Age of Ultron!!!

Words cannot express how excited I am about this movie. Since the first movie was so good, and has become one of my all-time favorite movies, my expectations are understandibly high for the sequel.

According to IMBD:

As the US Government create a force, known as Ultron, The Avengers are told they are not needed any longer. But when Ultron turns against Humanity, it’s time for The Avengers to assemble yet again for their most dangerous challenge ever.

SQUEEL!!!

In the comics, Ultron was created by Hank Pym, also known as Ant-Man, but Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man won’t release until “Phase 3″, so that’s off the table. I can only guess that Tony Stark is Ultron’s creator in the film universe.It fits, considering the events that played out in Iron Man 3. And one of the rumors that I have heard is that the JARVIS A.I. would become corrupt and villainous!

The JARVIS rumor is still just a rumor, but we can now put an actor to the robot; James Spader was officially cast as Ultron. The original Daniel Jackson! Spader’s voice is calming and trustworthy, two things always associated with the Ultron robot. I’m super excited to see what Joss Whedon does with this story arc.

I still have a question though…Where does Thanos fit in this? Well, he doesn’t really. But that’s okay. Thanos is one of the major baddies of Marvel. There is the possibility that Thanos will make an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy, and of course with Marvel there are endless twists and turns!

Avengers: Age of Ultron is slated to dominate theaters May 1, 2015.
