Welcome to the new world and it’s located in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
I’ve been very excited about the new show “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and I was not disappointed. As the show opens, you are given a look at the first superhero that isn’t on the roster at S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ. We are also re-introduced to old agents and the new ones. It’s never said how they bring back Colson, but it’s very obvious that he is the only one unaware of his secret.

It’s never said how they bring back Colson, but it’s very obvious that he is the only one unaware of his secret. The characters are standard fare for a TV show. Nothing really different from any other character on TV, except that they all work for this cool organization. I was surprised to see Ron Glass on the show as Dr. Stretlan as I didn’t see any news about it. I may have just never gotten the memo. I like the characters, though there isn’t too much background given right now. I’m sure that will come out in later episodes. Min-Na Wen’s character, Melinda May, seems to have some issues with being in the field, so I can’t wait to find out why.
The tech in this show is going to be a big centerpiece. From small drones that can do the work of an entire forensics team to really cool transportation, this is going to really get the fanboys and fangirls. And there are lots of tie-ins to the main Marvel Universe, with lots of references to our favorite superheroes. This will also be a favorite point of the show, listening for obscure references.
Nothing to really mention on this points as it is pretty good in general for television. Again, they may have some really cool stuff later on down the line, but for now, it’s looks good.
I’m hooked and can’t wait for the next episode. If you watched, what did you think?
Joss Whedon (MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) shows us not all heroes are super with MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual – of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world. Executive Produced and co-written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen (Dollhouse, Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog), Jeffrey Bell (Angel, Alias) and Jeph Loeb (Smallville, Lost, Heroes) comes Marvel’s first live-action TV series, MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. ~Press release from ABC
