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.

On this week's Earth Station MCU, we have another supersized double-header episode, as John and Jen discuss the Agents of SHIELD episodes, "The Team" and "The Singularity". And news - so much news! Inhumans is shelved, Punisher is getting his own solo series, WHIH is back with more in-world Marvel news - did you hear Pym Tech is having layoffs, and that General Ross is retiring? Oh, and there's some movie coming out this weekend. We figure we'll check it out and see if it's any good...

On this week's episode of Earth Station MCU...OK, there was a lot of news. Feige comments on crossovers and Phase 4, there's casting news for Iron Fist and Ragnorok, more characters added to Infinity War...and oh yeah, there was a trailer for Doctor Strange. Perhaps you saw it? It blew John and Jen out of their keds like a kick in the Chi from the Ancient One. On Agents of SHIELD, we get some Malick family history, Hive (Wive? Hoard?) shows his true form, and we get the fight of the year between May and

This week, on a Very Special Agents of SHIELD....we cover both "Watchdogs" and "Spacetime" in one supersized episode. Obvious allusions to terrorism and enhanced interrogation are obvious, and James Bond villainy abounds. 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.

In this episode of ESMCU,John and Jen take a moment to talk about iTunes "explicit" vs. "clean" ratings, as well as Marvel/Disney's statement regarding a proposed law in Georgia that would allow for GLBTdiscrimination. Along the way we end up talking about Jon Favreau's "Chef", a director of "Sherlock," Garry Shandling, and the difference between Captain Britain and Union Jack. 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?

In this week's episode of Agents of SHIELD, Coulson wears nerd glasses, Talbot wears a dress, and "Ward" gets a makeover! John and Jen also talk a little about season two of Daredevil (no spoilers, sweetie!), as well as the upcoming return of a familiar face on SHIELD, Vision wearing a suit, and Marvel finally getting a clue when it comes to marketing to a wider audience.

Agents of SHIELD returns after its midseason hiatus, and between trailers, casting news and everything else going on in the MCU, it's been a busy week! John and Jen look at all the latest MCU news, and then tackle Agents of SHIELD's "Bouncing Back." The Agent Formerly Known as Ward gets super-creepy, Coulson gets his Jack Bauer on, and romance is brewing on the Quinjet this week. Fitzsimmons' hits the reset button on their relationship, while Lincoln and Daisy get busy, and Mac hits it off with new Inhuman "Yo-Yo" Rodriguez. All this, #thereswidow, and Legos on this week's Earth Station MCU!

All good things must come to an end, and this week we say goodbye to Peggy, Jarvis, Howard and the SSR crew for another year...and possibly for good. John and Jen talk about the finale of Agent Carter, "Hollywood Ending", but manage to squeeze in "The Martian," "Flash," and more. The future is uncertain, but that cliffhanger at the end--!! Will Thompson survive? Will Peggy and Sousa end up together? Will Whitney claw her face apart and end up as Madame Masque? We'll have our fingers crossed that ABC decides Agent Carter deserves a third season. Of course, there's news to talk about as well, including official confirmation of Ward's new identity, Fitzsimmons and Selvig crossing over to the comics, the renewal of SHIELD, and speculations on the new J. Jonah Jameson.

Agent Carter again packed a lot into two hours - everything from a musical number to a revolving door of face/heel turns, not to mention Wilkes getting raptured up into a cloud of Zero Matter, Jarvis going all grimdark, and more. But first, John and Jen talk about the new Iron Fist, the latest Daredevil trailer, James Gunn's thoughts on the industry reaction to Deadpool, and Anthony Mackie trying to walk back his big spoiler about Civll War.

Oy. Some days the audio gods are kind, and some days they are not. And sometimes you leave the pop filter off the mic, and it sounds like you're recording in a wind tunnel. Mea cupla, Marvel Universe. Fortunately, there's a lot of fun stuff to talk about, including "Guardians" casting, James Gunn sightings in Atlanta, Anthony Mackie's on-air slip-up, Ward's fate on Agents of SHIELD, and ...how much longer is it until Daredevil is back?
We also review the double episode of Agent Carter, including "The Life of the Party" and "Monsters". The costuming is gorgeous, Dottie is up to her old tricks, and Whitney reaches full-blown super-villain status. Was this a bust or best episode ever? Tune in to find out!
