So Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. What can i say it looks promising...
My thoughts on the pilot episode are that the acting reminds me a lot like Heroes in which I enjoyed the 1st 3 seasons but at the 4th, BOREDOM kicked in!! I just hope for Marvel fans that this doesn’t flop like the 4th season of Heroes.
I did like the fact they kept some of the actors from Marvel's The Avengers movie i.e. Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) and Clark Gregg (iron man & Thor) as Agent Phil Coulson. However many thoughts kept going through my mind... how are they going to integrate this show with the movies and not lose production value, or use cheap shots from the marvel world movies because they cant afford to use the real actors who play our favourite super hero’s.
The Pilot episode was aired 24th September 2013 and to be honest it wasn’t that bad. If you want a snap shot of what it's about well here is the sticky.
"The series is set after the New York disaster in Marvel's The Avengers movie. The team are a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Now that the world knows about real life super hero’s and that there is possibly others out there, its S.H.I.E.L.D. job to help and protect every HERO from themselves and other government/private corporations."
In the pilot, the team goes after a man who has gained unusual and potentially dangerous powers that could destroy a few buildings. I think i will stop about now because I don't want to ruin it for you!! Here is a trailer and link below so you can view for yourself.
