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.

At times it feels small scale and shot in 1 studio in downtown somewhere. But the cameos just keep popping up, the tie-ins to the Hollywood blockbusters are in a holding pattern ready to drop by and add gravitas.
The attention to plot devices and personalities is pretty top spec though. They really play well off each other.
'Yeah, we're going to have to kill the fish-tank'. Just one of the LoL moments I experienced.....

I went in, pretty excited at the prospect of Joss Whedon being involved with this. Love Firefly, and thought his Dollhouse was great, though it was a long and slow build-up for the latter. Following the success of the Marvel movies, particularly the Avengers, I think everyone, including myself expected something else than what we got with the pilot. Although it would be unrealistic to think we'd get mini Marvel movies, I imagined a fairly gritty, heavy-hitting, action-filled show where we would finally get to see the full breadth and impact of SHIELD that we haven't really seen in the movies. Epic stories, quinjets, heli-carriers, large task-forces, and characters from the comics like Clay Quartermain. The combination of Whedon and Marvel. Firefly had come before. It had to be awesome, right?

Then the pilot aired. A small group of unknown, very young, inexperienced SHIELD operatives bantering like they were in a rom-com, being silly and not doing a whole lot and overall being quite lame. Too cutesy, no edge. After watching this, I felt the same as I felt after watching the Phantom Menace for the first time. Emptiness. What on earth was that piece of junk??? I watched the following 4 episodes, which in my mind didn't improve things a whole lot, and I gave up on the show completely, dismissing it as the very definition of boredom and mediocrity and the worst show I'd seen in ages.

Then, while abroad I caught the show from start by accident. And the weirdest thing happened. I liked it. Suddenly all the things I had disliked before changed before my very eyes as I watched it, and transformed itself into familiar Whedonesque prose. All at once, the pacing, plot and characters made sense. It was funny, cool and a lot more edgy than what I felt the first time.

It takes a fair few episodes to get going and that put off a lot of viewers. But once it hits its stride (particularly around the tie-in with captain america) it really gets good! I really enjoyed it, but don't judge it too quickly on the first 4/5 episodes.

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.

Excellent series. Begins a little slow in all honesty, but it just took a while to find its footing I think.

Follows Agent Phil Coulson and his team at .S.H.I.E.L.D as they try to fight for what is right. Discover what happened after The Avengers, find out HYDRA secrets, and see what happens when ordinary people take on aliens and superheroes.

After all, not all superheroes are super.

Featuring episodes that work around the MCU films "Thor 2" and "Captain America 2", and also with guest appearances from Cobie Smoulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L Jackson (Nick Fury), Jaime Alexander (Lady Sif), plus many, many more.

Action packed, with excellent special effects, friendship, romance, and non-stop twists & turns.

The second half of the series (especially ep16 onwards) are outstandind and addictive. Cannot wait for season 2; hopefully it will continue just as good as this ended, as it went from strength to strength.
