The animated opening, very much in the style of both Bewitched and I Dream of Jeanie, is crammed full of interesting little Easter Eggs.
The superhero genre is so wide you can tell almost any kind of story in it, and they take full advantage of that here. The various hints at more going on promise some interesting developments down the road.
Now that I’ve finally seen it, I don’t think it was anywhere near as bad as the rumors hinted.
After seven seasons, lots of fighting, battles, and successful missions, it’s the end of the line for the Agents of SHIELD. The series wraps up with a two-hour, double-episode finale, so this will be split in two parts.
It’s very near the end of the road for the Agents of SHIELD. After this, there’s a two hour special finale, and that’s it. So, a moment of silence for the passing of a show I’ve really enjoyed with some great characters.
The final season of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is ticking down, and things are looking more and more desperate for the agents. The Chronicoms have been one step ahead of them in their mad dash through time, battling over timelines.
I don’t know if it happens often enough to be a trope, per se, but if you have a show that involves time travel, there’s going to be a time loop episode. I’ve seen them on Dr. Who, Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, and the Magicians, among others.
A quick note about the New Mutants movie
We’re in their last season, the Chronicoms are trying to retroactively erase them from history, and now the Zephyr isn’t working right. Time is very much on everyone’s minds as they try and get their ship, and Yo-Yo, back in working order.
Deke and Mack have been left behind in 1982 for a very odd, but highly entertaining, episode that crams in as many 80’s references as it can.
