Hats of to Joss Whedon, he has done it again. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is everything it promised to be and more. It is so great to have Agent Coulson back ‘from the dead’ (all is explained in the first show), I really wondered how the Avengers franchise was going to carry on without him as he is such a big and wonderful character in a world bombarded with super heroes.
This show is really running alongside the films as it starts referencing the events in New York. Although the show focuses on one super-powered human, non-Avengers crew, who needs the help of S.H.E.I.L.D. there is still the bigger picture and a secret that Agent Coulson can ‘never know’, but we can only assume we will (I hope) find out soon.
Cobie Smulders makes a cameo appearance as Maria Hill. Whilst she is off busy being part of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron, she will be returning for future episodes in the series. Does this mean she will be the new Coulson linking everything together?
The Avengers might not know Coulson is alive as they aren’t ‘level 7’, but surely if he is back out there on the ground, it is only a matter of time before they find out, especially Tony Stark with all of his technology.
The show’s set and special effects are quite impressive for a TV show as well, obviously they are nothing on the movie blockbuster budgets, but they don’t look to bad for the Avenger movies little bit on the side.
All I can say is, I am so pleased that this show has made it to the small screen. With regular Marvel movies making it to the big screen for the foreseeable future, its great to know that we have something to fill in the weeks/months in between releases.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Tuesdays in the US and Fridays in the UK.
