The 42cast Episode 51: Breaking the Loop

Agents_of_Shield_S5

Many people expected season 5 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to be the end of the series. It had achieved 100 episodes and much of that season seemed to be a wrap up. In this episode we talk about expectations vs. reality. Did the season work better as the end of the series or as just one installment in a continuing story? We also examine the links to the MCU at large and discuss whether that’s hindering or hurting the Marvel TV series. From there we talk about the importance of Coulson, the unexpected yet welcome return of Talbot, and the gravity of the situation in season 5.

This week’s Five Minute Controversy asks if the DC Universe streaming service is providing enough original content to justify purchasing.

This week Ryan, Jen and James join the cast.
