Episode Title: AKA Ladies Night
Original Air Date: 11/20/2015
Jessica Jones is hired to find a pretty NYU student who’s vanished but it turns out to be more than a simple missing persons case.
When Marvel first announced their Netflix shows, the one that had me the most intrigued was Jessica Jones, simply because I knew nothing about the character. I knew some details about Daredevil, Iron Fist and Luke Cage but not her. This intrigue only increased as the cast for the show was assembled as a lot of great actors kept being added and now the full series has been released and, based in this first episode, we’re off to a good start.

In what can only be considered one of the biggest turn arounds in recent Television history, ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ manages to conclude Season 2 on such a high that it leaves one in awe, and so much anticipation of what is to come. Despite some slow and worrying storylines and some misdirection, Season 2 of the ABC show maintained a pretty steady pace of wonderful storytelling that introduced some great characters, made brilliant connections to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and told some stories that managed to prove the importance of this show to the over all world being created in the movies. Here’s taking a look at all the amazing things that ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ managed to achieve during its Season 2 run. Spoilers forthwith!
Title: S.O.S (Part 1 & 2)
Original Airdate: 12-5-15
Season 2 of ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.LD.’ is considered to be an improvement from Season 1, however the season finale blows away any comparisons to its initial season and solidifies the show as one of the most interesting and nuanced shows that successfully blends super hero action with an engaging drama. Titled ‘S.O.S’, the two-part Season 2 Finale aired back to back as one lone episode, and in some ways, was move effective in pushing forward the story of the shared Marvel Cinematic Universe much more than a recent film set in the same world. With betrayals, the reveal of a clear antagonist, tying up loose ends and an intense cliffhanger ending, ‘S.O.S.’ shocks and awes as Season 3 cannot get here soon enough!

Episode Title: Scars
Original Airdate: 5-5-15
It’s a post ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Marvel Cinematic Universe, and ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ does not shy away from acknowledging that fact. The penultimate episode of Season 2 titled ‘Scars’ not only makes references to the events of the film, but the characters themselves even analyze those events to get their point across in this episode. It’s a bold move but it pays off, as the show uses those events to further their own story and still make connections that answer a few questions and add to both the movie and the show. Although, maybe not enough to make the movie better. Fair warning: this Review of the latest episode of ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ will contain many major SPOILERS for ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’, (my Spoiler-free Review can be found here) so if you haven’t watched the movie and don’t want to be spoiled… be wary!

Episode Title: Melinda
Primarily serving as a somewhat origin story, the latest episode of ‘Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D.‘ gives us a history of the character of Melinda May played by Ming Na Wen. While showcasing the painful past, the episode also reveals some big surprises regarding the Inhumans, and connects the past to the present with some ominously vague reference of things to come, and ending with Coulson getting another step closer to retaking S.H.I.E.L.D. It’s a surprisingly good episode with amazing action and lots of feels!

Episode Title: Aftershocks
Original Airdate: 3-3-15
After a long mid season break, Marvel’s ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ returns to continue the amazing plot set up in its earlier episodes of Season 2. Last time we saw Agent Coulson and the team, Skye had just been exposed to what is known as Terrigan Mist in the alien city, along with Raina, which also caused the death of Trip. This episode is a somber one that deals with the aftermath of the change in status quo for the show, while dealing with how the death of a team member affects everyone differently.

Episode Title: A Sin To Err
Original Airdate: 02-10-15
After an action and story packed episode last week, this week’s ‘Agent Carter’ slows down a lot to make room for more, Peggy / Jarvis silliness before switching gears again for the 3rd act in favor of a cliffhanger ending and an interesting twist. While not as fast paced as the last episode, episode 6 of the series, entitled ‘A Sin To Err’, may not have moved things along as fast as it could’ve. And with only 2 remaining episodes, is the slowed pacing really a good idea? Lets find out.
