    SB114 - S6E12-E13 - The Sign and New Life

    Agents of SHIELD Season 6 Finale Review: The Sign and New Life The Agents of SHIELD season 6 finale wrapped things up neatly (perhaps too neatly) but gave us an amazing setup for season 7. "The Sign" and "New Life" may have undone too many deaths, but it gave us plenty of excitement and more unexpected moments than we could count.

    SB113 - S6E11 - From the Ashes

    Agents of SHIELD Season 6 Episode 11 Review: From the Ashes As Agents of SHIELD clearly builds towards its season 6 finale, "From the Ashes" takes a deeply emotional turn, and we love it! Whether enjoying Deke's approval by his grandparents, suffering with Benson as he deals with his guilt, rejoicing at the reconciliation between Mack and Yoyo, or gasping with Daisy as she witnesses bits of Coulson rising to the surface in Sarge, this episode pulled on all the heartstrings.
    Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for "From the Ashes," (no Faith’s S.H.I.E.L.D.S.A.S.S. feature this week), and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Daisy's extreme measures, Deke's belt buckle idea, May's surprising sensitivity, Izel's ingenuity, Sarge's awakening powers, and Flint's unusual return.

    SB112 - S6E10 - Leap

    Agents of SHIELD Season 6 Episode 10 Review: Leap With an entertaining shell game in the latest episode of Agents of SHIELD, "Leap" gives us all kinds of answers. The only question is whether or not we're fully satisfied with the explanation we've been given. Whatever the case may be, the body-snatching was undeniably fun, and the possibilities for a Ghost Rider connection are extremely enticing.
    Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for "Leap," Faith’s S.H.I.E.L.D.S.A.S.S. feature, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Mack's top notch decision making, Izel's sneaky infiltration, Deke's discomfort with being liked, Davis' ultimate sacrifice, Sarge's lingering memories, and much more.

    Agents of SHIELD Season 6 Episode 8 Review: Collision Course (Part I) Things seem to be back on track for Agents of SHIELD in "Collision Course (Part I)" in terms of the action and finally some answers! Those mysteries that remain, especially the one surrounding the similarities between Sarge and Coulson, are more and more enticing the more we learn about those involved in the shrike invasion and their motivations.

    SB109 - S6E7 - Toldja

    Agents of SHIELD Season 6 Episode 7 Review: Toldja Although "Toldja" wasn't our favorite episode of Agents of SHIELD this season, there was plenty of emotional dialogue between characters to gain our appreciation. As a result, this mid-season installment felt like a pivot point towards other exciting developments, especially considering we have a two-parter coming up next week.
    Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for "Toldja," Faith's S.H.I.E.L.D.S.A.S.S. Report, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Mack's odd interrogation technique, Daisy's denial, Sarge's confidence, Jaco's special powers, Enoch's heartfelt goodbye, and some squandered guest actor opportunities.

I enjoy these guys. They are keenly analytical and seem to genuinely be having fun. Something I really appreciate with the Golden Spiral approach is the hosts almost always have done a rewatch before taping. This is reflected in the smoothness of the delivery, the completeness of the topics that need to be covered, and makes for a fun listen.

The fact this podcast resides beneath the Golden Spiral Media umbrella speaks volumes to its quality. These guys deliver what a serious fan wants.

I'm a big fan and eagerly await each broadcast.

A Great Chat with Friends

I love listening to Mike & Dave talk about Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter. It’s nice to find a fan podcast that shows a lot of love for the show without overanalyzing the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I love the casual set up and the professional quality of the podcast. I’ve come to expect this kind of quality from GSM, and The Sandbox doesn’t disappoint. Thanks guys!
