Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Pilot Review

28 Sep

Ok, let me just say, I was very excited for this show! A continuation of my favorite superhero movies? WITH COULSON??? (Technically NOT a spoiler since EVERYONE knew about this). So I purposefully didn’t read a lot of spoilers before the pilot, hoping to be surprised later.

I didn’t catch a lot of names, so I referred to the characters as Coulson, Grumpy Agent Ward, Grumpy Asian Lady with Secret Melinda May, Angry Centipede Man, Airheaded Cosplay Hacker Woman, and Nerdy British and Irish Duo. I’ll try to keep it important spoiler-free, but you should probably just go watch it 🙂

I wasn’t aware of this before I watched it, but the show is set after the events in The Avengers and Iron Man 3, so they refer to the previous movies (Extremis, Stark Tower, New York, etc). You may want to watch those to get the full effect…OR JUST WATCH ALL THE MARVEL MOVIES AT ONCE IN A GLORIOUS MARVEL MARATHON.

Just a suggestion.

This played out more like a movie than the first episode of a show, with the characters and setting set up quickly in an attempt to move right into the heart of the action. I felt a little overwhelmed, but it wasn’t slow by any means. It was funny, it was snappy, and it had enough shocking and/or mysterious moments to keep me intrigued for the next episode. 

3/5 and an expression of gleeful geekiness from Olive 🙂

    The male star in the middle was in Much Ado About Nothing at the movies a couple of months ago. One of the best films I’ve seen this year.
