TV Review: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S4E12 Hot Potato Soup
Coulson and the team race to save agents Sam and Bill Koenig from those triyng to get their hands on the Darkhold book.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. brings back the Koenigs in a fun episode that plays off guest star Patton Oswalt’s deadpan humor. We also learn a bit more about them too! Like the original that got them all into SHIELD… who is not what you’d expect.
There’s something endearing seeing Oswalt play off himself in three different roles, each with their own personalities. The episode revolves around them and their hiding the Darkhold and a search to find them and it.
We also get some more reasons for at least one of the villain’s motivations this season with a pretty interesting twist at the end that seems like there’s a big target being placed on Coulson. With a reveal of who’s an LMD and who’s not, things are heading to a collision course.
This episode is a stronger one of the season adding some depth to motivations mixed with some humor to it all. I think the lesson is clear, more Oswalt please!
Overall Score: 7.85
