Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Episode 9 Review: Best Laid Plans

  • TVfanatic
After a string of very strong episodes in an equally strong season, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Episode 9 didn't quite measure up to its predecessors.

Leaps of logic coupled with a few head-scratching developments prevented "Best Laid Plans" from soaring, but there's still quite a bit to recommend it.

Let's start with Enoch. As I've mentioned in previous reviews, Enoch might well be one of the best recurring characters of the entire series. His comically serious dialogue is an unfailing source of humor in a fairly dark story arc.

No matter how ridiculous the line, Joel Stoffer delivers. Even acting opposite the utterly deadpan snarker Melinda May, his comedy gold performance stands on its own two feet:

Enoch: Agent Coulson, we are evacuating to the caves for shelter, are we not?

May: Zephyr flies again, metal man.

Enoch: I am mostly plastic alloy. And chronicoms do not have gender.

Permalink: I am mostly plastic alloy.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Episode 7 Review: Together or Not At All

  • TVfanatic
Can I just say how much I've enjoyed this season so far? The unexpected trip to the future has been brilliantly executed, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Episode 7 marked another strong entry in the saga.

While not as overwhelmingly fantastic as the two episodes that preceded it, "Together or Not At All" did not disappoint as (most of) Team Coulson reunited, however briefly.

Kasius wasn't as dead as I expected from Jemma Simmons' rather violent attack on him during the escape in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Episode 6, but it certainly gave him the opportunity to show that he's more than just a wannabe.

His apparent mutual attachment and loyalty with Sinara (despite apparently throwing her under the bus against Daisy) gave his character some depth. Sinara, too, got to be more than the silent muscle.

Faulnak (Kasius' brother) referred to her as "lowborn," providing some

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Seasons 5 Episode 6 Review – ‘Fun & Games’

Danny Hale reviews the sixth episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5…

It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye or, you know, their lives. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. delivered many surprises this week; some victories, some failures, some potential new villains but also several deaths. With Clark Gregg in the director’s chair ‘Fun & Games’ upped the ante, raising the stakes and pushing our characters into new territory. The winter premiere packed a lot of content and for the most part very effectively accelerated the story without feeling too rushed or uneven.

Kasius’ dinner party for his bidders gave an even greater look at the various intergalactic powers operating in this time. I love even getting glimpses of the costumes and make-up donned by these beings, expanding the diverse look of the McU. It was also pretty empowering to see Fitz

'Agents of Shield': Nick Blood Weighs in on Fitz’s Game-Changing Decision (Exclusive)

What the heck, Fitz?

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. made yet another epic move on Friday’s all-new episode, when the brilliant engineer -- after spending the hour tracking down mind-bending answers about his fellow agents’ whereabouts -- decided to cryo-freeze himself for oh, just a few decades, in order to meet up with the rest of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team in the future.

Nick Blood reprised his role as Agent Lance Hunter in the episode, playing a pivotal part in breaking Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) out of the military base where he was being held -- after an ingenious bit of coded correspondence between the two -- and helping him track down the answers that led him to the future. The brotherly dynamic between the two fellow Brits has always been a fan favorite, and it truly got to shine in this episode, as Hunter witnessed

Exclusive: Dread Central Visits the Set of Donner Pass

It's Saturday, March 13, 2010, when Dread arrives to the snowy set of director Elise Robertson's horror feature Donner Pass. Penned by Scott Adams and executive produced by Mouncey Ferguson, who financed the film, the independent feature tells the story of an unlucky group of teens who, while on a ski trip in the mountains around Lake Tahoe, encounter George Donner, an entity with a taste for human flesh, and unfortunately for the group, it's for their own.

Setting foot into the remote mountain cabin that production has secured, and at present is being utilized as base-camp, I meet associate producer Duncan Ferguson, who fills us in on the status of Donner Pass, starring John (the voice of the Crypt Keeper) Kassir as 'Epstein', Adelaide (Power Rangers R.P.M.) Kane as 'Nicole', Desiree Hall as 'Kayley', and Antonio Trischitta as 'Brody', with the cast rounded out by up-and-comers Erik Stocklin

The IFC Premiere of Bob Dylan's "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" Video

Director Nash Edgerton's "short film" version of Bob Dylan's single "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" debuted nationally at 10:15 Tuesday night on cable's IFC and the ifc.com website. Starring Amanda Aardsma and Joel Stoffer, it's a disturbing, somewhat realistic depiction of what could be the most abusive relationship in all of music videodom -- complete with a stabbing, a beating that draws blood and pronounced physical bruises, and a car assault on Stoffer by a vengeful Aardsma. It's an unflinching parade of violence (or the playing out of an abduction and escape, your choice) that serves as the backdrop to Dylan's sobering lyrics, and Edgerton's vision is an extremely wild interpretation -- if it even is one -- of the song's message. The debate will be on whether or not this video is an artful, gritty, jitter-camera'd study of domestic violence,...
