Since I don’t like to judge shows based purely on the Pilot episodes, this review for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was written after the second episode of the series, ’0-8-4′ aired. First, a few caveats. I’ve read some Avengers and related comics here and there, but I’m not a hardcore follower of the series or […]

Although cable seems to be the go-to for the most-watched shows these days, there’s a fantastic crop of exciting genre shows on network television this Fall.

That sound you’re hearing? Choirs of fanboys singing. This might be the greatest news to ever come out of geekdom. Joss Whedon, one of the most celebrated and respected (and geeky) wordsmiths of our time, is going to be directing Marvel Studios’ big-budget superhero mashup, The Avengers.
