Heads-up, True Sub-Basementeers!  If your pulse was pounded by this mighty Marvel-themed missive from the morbid minds of Rollickin’ Rich Bowen and Coulsonesque Chris Mowrer, how about headin’ over to the fabulous Facebook, hightailing your heiny to the twemendous Twitter, and perusing our awe-inspiring Archive!  It’s more fun than a Volkswagen full of Man-Things!

It’s true, we were kinda harsh on Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. last year, especially in our initial excitement over the upcoming Netflix series.  But, being true Whedonites, who remember those early episodes of Angel, and who watched every episode of Dollhouse, we had faith, and were rewarded.

Spoilers ahead, so proceed with caution.

First it was the hints of movement on the Coulson front; the secrets of his resurrection were contained in a familiar-looking blue alien corpse, a bit of Marvelly goodness for True Believers everywhere.  The events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier finally kicked things into gear, casting a new light on established characters and giving the show the direction it was waiting for.

Also, when the show goes on mid-winter hiatus, what do they do?  Reruns?  I say thee nay, sahib!  They gave us a whole ‘nother, even awesomer show!  What a great way to ease the Mid-Season Overload.
