Comicbook.com received an advance screening of the first episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. before it airs on Tues. Sept. 23th. Check out their review below.
Generally I really like the show, but for about two-thirds of the first season I think it was only running at about 25% of capacity. I am not sure if they were just being cautious about how much Marvel a general audience could handle or if there was interference from the network. In the face of criticism though they seem to have ‘fixed’ the series by the end by pushing away some of the frivolous characters and creating a strong association with the cinematic universe, basically everything that people expected from the beginning.
AoS still has a long way to go before the show is a huge hit (I still think Skye’s character is a distraction) but I think they may be up to the task. I am looking forward to finding out.
