Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D brings a different view point from our normal scenes of Thor, Hulk, Iron man and Captain America. It's really our first view from behind the scenes. We do hear about SHIELDS in each of the corresponding movies, mostly pissing people off and being secretive about everything, and never really getting to meet the team and knowing fully what they're about. So with the first episode of the series we are brought to the back stages of the Super Hero world and it goes into much greater detail of what SHIELD is really all about.
The basics of the episode is well structured, it has some known faces of the SHIELD team that we see in the movies and the humour from previous Marvel Films, especially The Avengers, that is a great touch for fans to love. There are a number of witty jokes that will have you laughing away but it does seem they played on this part too much,with some of the jokes really being a hit or miss, but nothing to take you away from the enjoyment of the episode.
Apart from the humour that it brings there are a number of exciting events that happen within the episode, that really had me surprised. It genuinely is thrilling and brings a sense of drama to make the series exciting. It has some beginnings of great cliff hangers and secrets that will make us curious and wanting to watch more with some sweet action scenes that are awesome too. The basis of the episode (not in great detail to avoid spoilers) is that there are some super humans in the world that SHIELD dont really know about and they have to protect these people before anything bad happens to them and the public. A simple enough storyline for the first episode or so it seems. The episode has some twists that are unexpected and a number of character developments that will have you intrigued throughout, and overall a good starting point for the series. This was something i was skeptical about, the characters. However the acting is brilliant and each character holds there own ground and plays each part really well, each fitting well with the style they play. As it is the first episode no one is brought into much depth but the ground work that has been done on each character opens up a number of development possibilities and it will be interesting how they develop each of them in there own light.
So is Marvel's Agents of Shield worth your time? Most certainly. It is a genuine drama thriller that will have you intrigued throughout, the whole episode with its witty humour and nice twists with action intertwined is there to create a good solid first episode and a real stepping stone for a series that could possibly be great.
So what did you think about the first episode? Let me know in the comments.
