After a dodgy first few weeks this eventually won me over. It kind of spins out of the events of Avengers Assemble - a mysteriously resurrected Phil Coulson puts together a crack team of young, good looking agents to take on various missions. How Phil is still with us after dying during The Avengers battle in New York is one of the main plot threads moving forward so stick with it.

The big boys don't appear of course but are often name checked and Nick Fury and Maria Hill make small but important contributions. There's a tie in of sorts to Thor : The Dark World which is fun bit disposable. Later, events from Captain America : The Winter Soldier spiral into events here which works better, giving some real thrust to the later stages of the season.

It all starts like a bit of a Heroes/Fringe mash up with pretty self contained character of the week type stories. It's ok at this stage and never less than watchable but at the same time not massively inspiring. Things really pick up speed from about episode 8 or 9 onwards. Various bigger story arcs start coming together and some interesting villains are introduced and slowly developed.

There's plenty of twists and double crosses to keep you on your toes, most work, some don't. One particular later season episode features one of the most eye rolling "twists" but then ends the episode with a further shock that really hits home and opens up plenty of story opportunities. There's a fair amount of resolution by the end of the season which is refreshing and various seeds are laid for further seasons.

In other observations - there's a healthy dose of humour throughout, the actings generally pretty good, the budget appears to be of a decent size so it all looks the part. Overall, a series that definitely gets better if you stick with it long enough and Season 2 has the opportunity to build on this solid foundation.

This isnt going to have the likes of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America or The Hulk in every episode, this is about SHIELD, the secret agents lead by Agent Coulson from the Marvel movies last seen in Avengers Assemble getting killed by villain Loki and now mysteriously ressurrected as they investigate superpowered people and objects and other mysterious characters in the Marvel Universe. Yes there are references to the films and even the comics for the die hard Marvel fans with guest appearances from Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smoulders as Maria Hill and tie in episodes to Thor The Dark World and Captain America Winter Soldier but these are mostly brand new never seen before characters though obscure characters from the Marvel comics do appear later. The series starts off well, slows down in the middle then picks up again for a thrilling finale. Will be interesting to see where the series goes next as well as the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

For a start, even for those who have never watched a Marvel film in their lives, the series is easy enough to understand. Plotlines follow on from the movie Avengers Assemble, straight into this series, but things are explained briefly anyway. It follows Agent Phil Coulson and his team at S.H.I.E.L.D, who, under the guide of Agent Nick Fury, aim to protect earth from the dangers of superhero and alien invasion.
Whilst the series does start off a little slow, and sometimes the episodes can be watched out of order, by halfway through I was completely addicted; one night I even watched 5 in a row! I've been watching it online and have about 7 episodes to go until the finale, and Holy c**p!! As it goes on there are more twists and turns, there are Asgardian warriors visiting earth, unknown alien viruses threatening civilisation, and advanced technology unlike the team have ever seen before.
The last part of the season (from around episode 14 onwards) is incredible, each episode delivering plenty of "OH MY GOD" moments, for many different reasons.
My favourite character is Agent Melinda May - she completely kicks ass!
I adore this show, and desperately hope it gets renewed for a second season.
