Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Episode 11 Review: All the Comforts of Home

What a long, long month of anticipation, waiting for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Episode 11. And I'm happy to report that "All the Comforts of Home" did not disappoint. The story hit the ground running almost as quickly as Team Coulson did on their return to the present, re-introducing old plot threads and continuing the current ones wonderfully. Not to mention the fact that I am very, very happy that (SPOILER ALERT!) Deke's not dead! Some might argue that Deke's storyline was wrapped up quite well with his heroic sacrifice to make sure the monolith had power. Fair point. I found him one of the best parts of the Dystopian Future arc the first half of this season, and I'm reasonably certain that there's plenty of story to be had by bringing him back to the present with the team. Daisy: How do you show up in another time and, like, *immediately* get arrested? Deke: Have you *tried* Zima? Permalink: Have you *tried* Zima? Added: March 03, 2018 While the Zima product placement (I admit, I had to check to see if it was a real brand) definitely distracted, Deke still provided a large part of the episode's brief moments of joy. Even as the team basked momentarily in the success of their mission to get home, they still had to face reality: a truly psychotic woman called General Hale was out to get them. With her Quake-obsessed daughter Ruby as her deadly (if not exceptionally reliable) weapon at her disposal. I know I'm not the only one who thought of the late, lamented Sinara when Ruby showed up to ruin Team Coulson's day (and disarm Yo-Yo). That brief encounter was definitely a highlight of the episode. Brutal, heart-stopping, and horrifying. Not to mention the fact that it was the first concrete evidence of Future!Yo-Yo's fate... In short, a major moment in the episode, and significant for the arc as a whole. While we now know how Yo-Yo lost her arms, we still aren't certain that everything Future!Yo-Yo said is true or accurate, as Mack fairly pointed out. She was pretty far gone, and Kasius loved to manipulate people. Does that include us, the audience? Or would that be too meta? Though perhaps my favorite individual moment of "All the Comforts of Home" was the team's wry recap of all the insanity they've had to endure over the past four and a half seasons: Coulson: These things look roomier from the outside. Mack: It’ll get us where we need to go. May: Hey, could be worse. Simmons: True. We could be enslaved by an alien sociopath in a dystopian future. Mack: Or we could be trapped in a virtual reality fascist state. Fitz: Or stuck at the bottom of the ocean. Yo-Yo: Or stopping a crazy robot lady. Simmons: Or falling out of a plane. Mack: Fighting Daisy’s mom. Coulson: Or fighting Daisy’s dad. May: Or *dancing.* Permalink: Or *dancing.* Added: March 03, 2018 Y'know, they make it sound bad when they put it like that! (Do stop by our Agents of S.H.I.E...

Hawaii Five-0 Season 8 Episode 16 Review: O nā hōkū o ka lani wale no kai ‘ike i kahi o Pae (Only the Stars of Heaven Know Where Pae Is)

Well, that was an exception to the rule. The case of the week was almost incidental to everything else that was happening on Hawaii Five-0 Season 8 Episode 16. Still, let's talk about that case first, and dispose of it relatively quickly, just like it was on the episode. The best part of the case was Tani and Junior going undercover as parents checking out a private academy for their young son, Noah. Granted, Noah was supposedly just getting out of preschool, but he looked to be much older than that in their Photoshopped photos, way too old for this young couple to have produced. How did the admission director miss that? Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video. WATCH ANYWHERE. CANCEL ANYTIME! As Danny and McGarrett noted early on, Tani and Junior work as a couple. A feisty, bickering couple, like they'd been married for too long, but a couple nonetheless. As McGarrett noted, there's definitely a chemistry there. And they held their own among that private school crowd and didn't seem out of place. What could have seemed like interrogation just came off as nosy people exchanging gossip? What a great way to learn about the unlikeable headmaster. Should they be a couple? I'd say no, first because the series has already done the co-workers as a couple thing with Steve and Catherine, even though that didn't work out in the end. (Yes, Chin and Abby also.) I like them better as almost brother and sister, ragging on each other. It's a shame that their undercover stint was so short. It had to be to keep the case zipping along. There was no shortage of suspects: the bribe-taking admissions director, one of the women the headmaster was bedding, one of the many complainants. I have to admit I never thought of the gymnasium contractor who was laundering money for a Venezuelan drug cartel. I mean, how does that kind of arrangement come to be? But while Barton was a scumbag, at least he took the fall for his wife, the actual murderer. That's only fair after he endangered his family by even being involved with a cartel. Oh, and can you think of a more McGarrett scenario than Steve unearthing a murder victim with a jackhammer? Est muy macho. Props to Eddie for his much-needed assistance in solving this case. Then there was the obligatory firefight finale, but at least Junior got to take the final sniper kill shot this time. He's integrating well into this team.

He was there essentially because of an underworld myth. Yes, he did go visit Michelle Shioma, even if he should have known better. And he walked away before learning the secret which she was prepared to tell him. I figured that Adam's task force looking into the Yakuza was stillborn,..

Blue Bloods Season 8 Episode 15 Review: Legacy

I know that we live in complicated times, but I was utterly flummoxed by Police Commissioner Frank Reagan's decision at the end of Blue Bloods Season 8 Episode 15. I'll start by saying that I could see both sides of the incident between Officer Whitman and Mr. Rivera. She was trying very hard to do her job, while he looked like a scared deer caught in the headlights. Does Officer Whitman ask many people she stops about their immigration status? I've seen plenty of people not want to show their identification to the police. Do they all end up being asked if they're in the country legally? And if it was because he had brown skin, well, you'd half to ask at least half of New York City that question. Sid: She went by the book, and we're trained that book's the bible. Garrett: And like the bible, the wrong translation can cause more harm than good. Permalink: And like the bible, the wrong translation can cause more harm than good. Added: March 02, 2018 It felt like the officer was a rookie who was overcompensating. I thought bringing her to meet the man in jail was a step in the right direction because it would give her a balanced view of what happens once someone is in the system. Unfortunately for Mr. Rivera, since he wasn't a citizen, he could be held in detention indefinitely awaiting a hearing, which would be cruel even if he weren't claustrophobic. Related: Get CBS All Access via Amazon Channels for Hit Shows, Exclusive Originals & Live TV! I expected Frank to order the officer to have some sort of retraining. She didn't technically do anything wrong, but she certainly could have handled the situation better, and this could have been used as a training issue for the entire NYPD. But Frank chose to fire her, and I was floored. Even his Blue Bloods quote didn't quell my shock: "By general law, life and limb must be protected, yet often a limb must be amputated to save a life, but a life is never wisely given to save a limb," Abraham Lincoln. This department is the life, Officer Whitman is a limb. Frank Permalink: "By general law, life and limb must be protected, yet often a limb must be amputated to save... Added: March 02, 2018 Yes, firing someone who is well respected and has a family history within the department will certainly get everyone's attention, but is ruining this woman's career the right way to bring about change? Perhaps it's the most expedient way to get the point across, but it doesn't jibe with the Frank Reagan I've known over eight seasons. Frank Reagan has always taken the side of his officers, even when the circumstances were far murkier than they were here, and the pressure to take action far greater. So why fire Officer Whitman when some sort of counseling, retraining or disciplinary action seemed much more appropriate? I'm still at a loss. Then there was Nicky's new job. I found it amus..

Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 11 Review: Secret Garden

Farewell, Rapunzel. On Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 11 the polarizing character lost her when she sacrificed herself to save Drizella, and it made for an exciting hour of this soon-to-conclude ABC drama. It was only a matter of time before Rapunzel redeemed herself, and it was obvious she was gearing up to swap places with her daughter the moment Drizella was caught inside Gothel's spell. The icy demeanor from Rapunzel towards Drizella was at times cumbersome, but having the mother-daughter duo at odds has made for some of the best moments of this rebooted season of the series. If you watch Once Upon a Time online, you will already know the true extent of their hatred for one another, but it's a big thing to have one of them die for the other. I'm not so sure Drizella would have done the same thing had the roles been reversed. Related: Once Upon a Time Canceled After Seven Seasons! Given the way Rapunzel wheeled, dealed and double-crossed everyone in sight to get Anastasia back into the land of the living, one would think she would have wanted to stick around. But it seemed that even the character knew her purpose on the show was to bring her daughter back to life and disappear quietly into the afterlife. Regina: Hey, how are you? How's Lucy? Henry: She's stable, but she's not getting any better. Me? There's nothing I can do to help, so there's that. Regina: Hey, don't give up. Lucy needs you right now. She needs your help; even she can't ask for it. I may not have known you long, but I can tell. You're a believe Henry. Even if you don't know it. Just like Lucy. Henry: Yeah, well thanks for the pep talk. Permalink: Yeah, well thanks for the pep talk. Added: March 03, 2018 Who said nobody takes accountability for their actions in Hyperion Heights? This twist will present some exciting episodes for Drizella as she comes to terms with the fact that the woman she thought hated her gave her another shot at life. Drizella has been consumed by hatred for so long that it will be a complete 180 to watch her do something else. There's a good chance she will join the rest of the gang in the fight to take down Gothel, but I won't be surprised if Regina does not dole out some revenge on her. It's been tough to watch Regina act like everything has been fine since she was awoken by Drizella from her curse-fueled slumber early in Once Upon a Time Season 7. Related: Once Upon a Time: Jared Gilmore Returns! It's unclear whether Drizella will continue to fight with Regina, but her new lease on life might find her picking her battles more as opposed to rushing into feuds. I struggled to get through the scenes with Robin. There was something about the character that felt off, and I cannot fathom what it was. I understand that she was supposed to be this angsty teenager, but her storyline was about as engaging as the love story between H..
