Okay, I have to say, that this week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Turn, Turn, Turn really should not have come as a surprise, the twist at the end…The double twist that is? I should have seen it coming. How many times has Bill Paxton played a variation on the same role. Sure he was a good guy in the 1996 film Twister, but before that he was the obnoxious Pvt. Hudson in Aliens, the horrific Severen in Near Dark in 1987 and the first thing I ever saw him in; Paxton was boogery big brother Chet in Weird Science. Bill Paxton, for the most part, equals either bad guy or a**hole type character who is so annoying that even the audience want to shoot him.
Last night’s 16th episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was the episode that fans of the television show and big screen Marvel hero films had been waiting for; the Captain America tie in was the best ever. Of course it was pretty much sign posted in last week’s episode’s by the closing moments when it turned out that Agent May was keeping an eye on Agent Coulson and reporting on his actions.
Episode 13 of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., aptly titled T.R.A.C.K.S., was a nice change in pace with its Stan Lee cameo and even some tears by the show’s end. Unfortunately, however entertaining it was to see good old Stan “the man” Lee and the resurgence of the show’s “big bad” the Clairvoyant, aka the mysterious head of Centipede; the show still hasn’t picked up much in the way of pace.
