Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...
We had a brand new episode of MARVEL's Agents of SHIELD Tonight titled 'The Patriot' (Season 4, Episode 10) and thus we're doing a little recap and review after watching it! Spoiler Warning is in effect!





TALKING POINTS Mace is exposed as being a fraud, not really having powers, but he makes the perfect figure head for SHIELD because he can play politics and work the pressLMD May knows something is off, and discovers she's a machine following her skin being punctured The REAL May woke up because she was put in the simulation of a freaking day spa...Aida 2.0 clearly has an ego about LMD May being a bit more advance and doesn't take to kindly to Radcliff not letting her just get the DarkholmFitz wants to figure out what's went wrong with Aida 1.0, but Simmons is oddly... anti-investigating it

We're ahead of schedule, as I took a look at next episode of A Series of Unfortunate Events today with episode three of season one titled 'The Reptile Room, Part One'





THE TALE OF THE BAUDELAIRES
I thought this was a very even episode, establishing everything needed to show what could be a very positive ending for Violet, Klaus and Sunny, with solid performances all around from the cast

We're kicking Tuesday off with my review of The Bad Beginning Part 2, which is episode 2 of season of the Netflix Original series 'A Series of Unfortunate Events'

The Bad Beginning Part 2 is awesome, with Olaf coming up with a legal way to get the Baudelaire fortune, he will simply marry Violet as part of a play which would actually be real, since he’s her legal guardian he can give his enthusiastic permission for her to marry, and all she has to do is say ‘I Do’ and sign a legal document…. And it nearly works, but thankfully the plot was realized by Klaus who read up on nuptial law thanks to a book he got from Justice Strauss and presents a legal and moral argument for why the wedding is invalid. Not because Olaf is a vile human being, but because Violet signed the document with her left hand instead of her right.

The fact that Olaf’s scheme nearly works is quite ingenious cause in my view, as he takes…
