Season 1, Episode 1 – Against all odds, precedent, and common sense Agents of SHIELD‘s fourth season starts off legitimately awesome. Every series regular sets up a personal conflict and the much touted Ghost Rider has depth instead of just being a gimmick.
Agents of SHIELD‘s two-part season finale provides a fitting and fulfilling resolution to a messy season. Individually, each episode stands well, but they’re both sullied by what came before.
Agents of SHIELD offers politics, spies, and allies in “The Inside Man,” providing plenty of intrigue without being completely emotionally exhausting. “The Inside Man” offers a pause for character development before plunging head first into peril.
Agents Of SHIELD treats its winter finale like a season finale. Blessings upon its head. If we have to wait three months for new episodes, a cohesive action-packed episode with a definitive ending is much better than sitting on a cliff-hanger for that long.
Agents of SHIELD offers up “Many Heads, One Tale” like the magnum opus of a master weaver, taking the literally six or seven season plots and tying them all together so neatly it almost feels deterministic. This season is a hot mess, so I love that everything has finally come together, even if it does feel like a foregone conclusion.
Agents of SHIELD, you were doing so well it was inevitable that you’d stumble and fall when I needed you most. That’s the way it goes. Outside reports claim this episode is a fascinating story of survival and shit. I can’t see the forest for the trees.
This is the show at its best. This is what the series has been doing so damn well since Winter Soldier. Every time I start to trust that they can keep it up, I remember the beginning and weep, or they stumble and come up flat. But this week, man oh man. This week who cares where we started.
The Agents of SHIELD finale wraps up every plot thread to satisfaction and starts a few more, just like last season’s. I’m game.
If Age of Ultron didn’t do it for you, Agents of SHIELD is still amazing to pick up the slack. It’s been a crazy week in the MCU. Rather than having to suffer joltingly through lame tie-ins or forced references, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was perfectly content to keep doing its own thing in “Scars.”
The long lead-up of Agents of SHIELD’s second season is the biggest Avengers: Age of Ultron promo ever. At this point my excitement over Agents of SHIELD is kind of a given, but do you know how excited I was when I saw the title of this episode? “The Dirty Half Dozen,” I mean, guys, can you imagine?
Agents of SHIELD is leading into Avengers: Age of Ultron in earnest, now. Yeah, it’s as intense as it sounds.
Agents of SHIELD delivers a triple-threaded character piece that’s not as driving as usual but deeply nuanced.
Agents of SHIELD remembers its roots and teases at audience meltdown in a twisty thrill-ride of an ep.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. blows up its entire power structure and it’s better than you would ever imagine.
