  • Earth Station MCU Episode 59: Agents of SHIELD “BOOM” and “The Man Behind the SHIELD”
    by EarthStationMCU on April 7, 2017 at 2:27 am

    Hello Marvel Universe! With the announcement of the new Guardians of the Galaxy ride at Disneyland (but not Disney World…), John and Jen try to untangle intellectual property rights when it comes to theme park rides. Universal Orlando has Spiderman….but Sony has the movie rights, which they’re now sharing with Marvel Studios. Wait, what? We enthuse over concept art for Ragnarok and Black Panther, and remind ourselves that Marvel knows what they’re doing, even if the Thor “mockumentary” shorts seem to be at odds with the epic fantasy tone of the series and the dark nature of the Ragnarok plotline.    In the episodes “Boom” and “The Man Behind the SHIELD”…yeah.  A lot of side plots that don’t go anywhere, an extended Philinda flashback, and some head-scratcher moments where character motivations don’t really seem to make a lot of sense. But there are also some great fight [... […]

  • Earth Station MCU Episode 58: Agents of SHIELD “Wake Up” and “Hot Potato Soup”
    by EarthStationMCU on April 4, 2017 at 3:14 am

    Hello Marvel Universe! In this episode of ESMCU, John and Jen talk about two other Marvel TV shows on the horizon: Hulu’s “Runaways” and Freeform’s “Cloak and Dagger”.  These shows aim to bring in a younger audience, but…whatever happened to “it’s all connected?” Next, we recap the Infinity Stones – which ones are found, which ones are still missing, and where might they turn up between now and Infinity War? In this week’s SHIELD episodes, “Wake Up” and “Hot Potato Soup,” we learn more about Radcliffe’s virtual world, and get to see Patton Oswalt do standup. Radcliffe proves to be even more of a sneaky bastard, and we get a disappointing reveal of who “The Superior” is. Is there another LMD at SHIELD HQ, in addition to Radcliffe and the May-bot? […]

  • Earth Station MCU Episode 57: Agents of SHIELD “Broken Promises” and “The Patriot”
    by EarthStationMCU on April 3, 2017 at 3:08 am

    Hello Marvel Universe!  We’re back after a longer than anticipated break, ready to catch you up on the last ….quarter season?  The episodes between the winter break and the spring break. We’ve moved to an every other week schedule, so most of our episodes will cover two SHIELD stories. But first, John and Jen talk about the news - new announcements about who will be in Infinity War (spoiler alert: EVERYONE), rumors of Peter Dinklage joining the cast, a change in leadership at Marvel Entertainment, and speculation on who Sigourney Weaver is playing in “Defenders.” In the second half, we cover the episodes “Broken Promises” and “The Patriot.” The LMD plotline is in full swing, but what happens when your Big Bad gets gacked at the end of the first episode? We’re in comic book TV, so you can’t keep a good bad guy down. Mace’s “big secret” is revealed, and it’s basically wha [... […]

  • Earth Station MCU Episode 56: Agents of SHIELD “Laws of Inferno Dynamics”
    by EarthStationMCU on January 29, 2017 at 5:00 am

    Happy belated holidays from Earth Station MCU, as we bring you the mid-season finale of Agents of SHIELD! John and Jen discuss the new Spidey trailer, “Planet Hulk” elements in Thor: Ragnarok, and upcoming toys for Guardians of the Galaxy. Jen dons her cultural studies hat and asks if theme of stealing that runs throughout this episode has a racial undertone or not, because that’s what happens when you have four whole weeks of not having to read literary criticism.  Thank you all for your patience as we get back up to speed! […]

  • Earth Station MCU Episode 55: Agents of SHIELD - “The Good Samaritan” and “Deals With Our Devils”
    by EarthStationMCU on January 24, 2017 at 5:13 am

    Hello Marvel Universe! Sorry for the delay — we were stuck in the Dark Dimension for a couple months there, but this nice robot lady got us out, and I’m sure everything will be fine. I mean, it’s not like she’s Ultron….right?  Um…guys? In this episode, John and Jen review “The Good Samaritan”, in which we get a glimpse at how Robbie met the Ghost Rider spirit, and “Deals With Our Devils,” which…is pretty much what it says on the tin. In more ways than one.&nbs […]

  • Earth Station MCU Episode 54: Doctor Strange
    by EarthStationMCU on November 12, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    John and Jen take a break from the usual Agents of SHIELD reviews to check out the latest MCU cinematic offering - Doctor Strange! With mind-blowing special effects and one of the most talented casts we’ve seen in the MCU, expectations were high for the Sorceror Supreme. Who are we to judge?  We’re Earth Station MCU, and we’ve come to bargain! […]

  • Earth Station MCU Episode 53: Agents of SHIELD “Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire” & “Lockdown”
    by EarthStationMCU on November 6, 2016 at 2:10 am

    In this double episode of Earth Station MCU, John and Jen review both “Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire” and “Lockout”. But before that, there’s man-tears falling over the announcement of all female directors for season two of Jessica Jones, new casting for Defenders and Punisher, as well as confirmations from Kevin Feige on who will be in Infinity War, the possibility of future crossovers. All this and Halloween cosplay fun on this episode of Earth Station MCU!&nbs […]

    by EarthStationMCU on November 2, 2016 at 12:45 am

    In this episode of Earth Station MCU, John and Jen recap all the news from New York Comic Con, including all the latest about Marvel’s Netflix series. Sigourney Weaver will plan Defenders’ big bad…but who will that be? Kevin Feige weighs in on Blade rumors, and Agent Carter returns…but not the way we were hoping. All this and a nail-biter of a SHIELD episode….even without Carrot Top!&nbs […]

  • Earth Station MCU Episode 51: Luke Cage Season 1
    by EarthStationMCU on October 29, 2016 at 9:39 pm

    Sweet Christmas! In this episode, John and Jen review the long-awaited third entry into the Netflix side of the MCU, with season one of Luke Cage. The series that broke the internet, crashing Netflix for several hours the day after it was released, earned widespread acclaim not only from geek media but also from sources as varied as the Wall Street Journal to the Christian Science Monitor, and Ebony to The Atlantic.  Featuring a large cast, three different major villains, and causing tears of outrage from internet trolls who protested the lack of racial diversity (…seriously?!), Luke Cage is among the MCU’s most talked-about heroes. Tune in to hear John and Jen dissect the “bulletproof black man,” revealing easter eggs, connections to the MCU, and how it stacks up against the rest of Marvel’s properties.&nbs […]

    by EarthStationMCU on September 27, 2016 at 3:11 am

    Hello Marvel Universe! John and Jen are back from hiatus, and ready to review the first episode of Agents of SHIELD - “The Ghost”.  It’s gonna be YUGE, simply YUGE! With the addition of Robbie/Ghost Rider, as well as Dr. Radcliffe becoming a main-cast character, we have a lot of cool stuff coming up this season. And can we talk about those effects? Did they blow the whole season’s budget on this episode? All this, and casting news on Ragnorok, the Russos on the lack of death in Civil War, Luke Cage, and some unconfirmed but very interesting rumors about Red Skull and Punisher… On a scale of one to five flaming skulls, one being terrible and five being Best Flaming Skull Ever, how would you rate this episode?

    by EarthStationMCU on May 25, 2016 at 4:24 am

    FINALLY!   At long last, John and Jen share their thoughts on Civil War, Baron Zima (admit it, he’s kind of watered down and 80s as villains go), and how the Sokovia Accords will impact the larger MCU.

Hoard?) shows his true form, and we get the fight of the year between May and Giyera.  Like what you hear?

    This week, on a Very Special Agents of SHIELD….we cover both “Watchdogs” and “Spacetime” in one supersized episode.

John and Jen earn that new iTunes tag this week, talking about revealing fashion choices on the new “Cloak and Dagger” series on Freeform, Nitramine hickeys, as well as horrifying flashbacks to 80s TV’s attempts to tackle serious issues.  Oh, and sweet Asian cinnamon rolls.  Just…don’t ask.

Jen mispronounces the names of some new hires for “Marvel’s Most Wanted,” and we talk about where things go from here for Bobbi and Hunter. Where does their story go from here, and can the rest of the team carry on without two of their best agents?&nbs […]
