Agents of SHIELD is taking a break. Seriously.

There seems to be surprise and consternation that Agents of SHIELD will be taking a rest in February, likely during the Winter Olympics. Don't believe your pals at Phantastic Geek? Here's the proof:

One: ABC's press site has advance info through episode 5x10, "Past Life," stated to air on February 2nd. That episode will also be the 98th episode overall, as well as the last episode before the Winter Olympics starts its flow of pageantry, sports most of us Americans don't understand, and advertising opportunities. Oh, and the world will come together too!


Two: Marvel's website is celebrating Agents of SHIELD's 100th episode with some artwork--and notes that the 100th episode will air on March 9th. It is important to note that this episode will be 5x12.

Three: The Winter Olympics Closing Ceremony will air on Sunday, February 25th (meaning there will be Olympic coverage on the preceding Friday).

Our conclusion: Agents of SHIELD takes a break for most of February; after its (pod-finale?) episode on February 2nd, it will return with episode 5x11 on Friday, March 2nd.

Our Agents of SHIELD podcast will continue to cover the show every week, both here on PhantasticGeek.com and on iTunes

The Road Ahead for 2018

2017 was a year stuffed with content for us to podcast; looking back, we somehow completed a whopping 130 podcasts for the year. What does 2018 hold for us? Here's a month-by-month breakdown.

January: Easy by comparison, we'll cover four episodes of Star Trek: Discovery and four episodes of Agents of SHIELD and the final two episodes of Marvel's Runaways.

February: Star Trek: Discovery wraps its first season with its final two episodes, and Agents of SHIELD presumably continues for all four Fridays. We'll also review Black Panther the weekend of the 16th. Live tweeting The Walking Dead continues for the remainder of its season eight run.

March: Agents of SHIELD continues, perhaps for four Fridays (with Good Friday off?); add to the mix Jessica Jones, which drops on International Women's Day, the 8th. Our goal is to cover all 13 episodes in about a month.

April: You guessed it: Agents of Shield continues for four Fridays, and we conclude Jessica Jones early in the month. We also wouldn't rule out Cloak and Dagger starting its 10 episode run around this time but, as of publishing this post, we don't have a date.

May: If Agents of Shield takes no breaks and doesn't double up episodes, that would leave only one episode left for May. (More likely is that SHIELD takes a few breaks along the way, and we have more than one episode to conclude the 5th season.) Late May also brings the waiting game: will SHIELD be renewed? We'll also hit the movies twice: a review for Avengers: Infinity War and for Solo: A Star Wars Story

June: Give a baby thumbs up: Deadpool 2 arrives the first weekend of June and with it comes a review from us! Also, we'd peg the summer as a likely start for the second season of Westworld, which we'll live tweet. 

July: Completely spitballing here, but it's possible Luke Cage arrives in the summer; regardless, we'll podcast all 13 episode of that as well, perhaps in less than a month. We'll also give a review for Ant-Man and the Wasp.

August: With Luke Cage presumably concluding and a quiet month at the movies, this might be a great time for us to return to some Star Trek essentials. We'll see.

September: Hopefully we'll be gearing up for season six of Agents of SHIELD. 

October to December: This is also a possible time for 13 episodes of Daredevil, which started filming in November 2017. (Typically, Marvel/Netflix shows arrive about a year after filming begins.) In terms of movies... maybe Venom in October? Maybe the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in December? It'll be curious to hit the last three months of the year with no geeky offerings from Disney, i.e. a Marvel or Star Wars film. Lastly, it's probably a decent bet to look for part of a Star Trek: Discovery season before the end of the year.

Star Trek: Discovery -- Previewing Chapter Two

Star Trek: Discovery returns next weekend, so Pete and Matt preview where the good Disco crew may be headed in Chapter Two of the first season.
