Among Us Hide ~ Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Marvel Podcast with Clark Gregg and EPs
Well, that was a fantastic episode with a reveal I never saw coming. It was astonishing and I can't wait to see how it affects everyone and plays out in the rest of the season. I'd like to say more, but it's the weekend and there's so much to do. Instead, I have Marvel's own podcast here, which is actually less about this milestone 50th episode than it is about the inception and culmination of everyone's hard work. Clark Gregg, Maurissa Tancharoen, Jed and Joss Whedon, and Jeffs Bell and Loeb contribute. One of the Jeffs said, "It was love," about working with people like Maurissa and Jed. Love - of storytelling, of television, of characters and the real people who create them, of the fans - is often the driving force behind all my favorite shows and it's nice when those involved confirm that.
When you have a number one who every day comes to set and every day is excited and thrilled and brings, after 50 episodes, the same enthusiasm that he brought to the pilot, it's kind of impossible for everybody to not only just behave but to bring their A game.
And that's on Clark.
So, here you go. Enjoy. This is one of my favorite interviews ever, especially when Clark says that Ward is heartbroken and searching for a place to belong. I understand that, even if he has gone off the deep end of evil. It's commendable that this series doesn't just have one-note cartoon villains, but human beings who have a soemtimes somewhat sympathetic reason for the terrible things they do. Makes me wonder if they'll make me feel for Lash. Of particular interest was learning how the others reacted in real life when they learned that Ward turned.
This Week in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
*Episode 30, Clark Gregg*
I had no idea that Marvel had podcasts. I currently listen to three podcasts and I'm actually subscribed to seven of them. Two are about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and it looks like I'll be adding this one! Yes, that's how wonderful the series is. It's beautifully acted and beautifully written. It's so good, in fact, that a few times I have even shared thoughts with Marvelverse Podcast. I think the only time I ever contributed to or participated in someone else's project, in some tiny way, was during the final season of Fringe.
There are a couple other podcasts I love, like Twin Peaks Unwrapped, and some random ones I haven't even listened to yet. Also, somehow I completely forgot there are Doctor Who podcasts! And until today I didn't even think of looking for Supernatural or The Blacklist or The Walking Dead. Silly me. Silly busy, distracted me. But that's way too much to keep up with when I still have a number of series to catch up on. I wish I had a Time Turner.
Oh yeah, then there are the multitude of interviews, both video and print, that I don't get to very often. It'll happen every couple of months that I'll suddenly be obsessed with an episode or an actor and spend all day and night finding interviews. It's exhausting. One day I really want to put together a page of all the best interviews.
