Airing Tonight: “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” Season 2 (9/23/2014)

Have you been keeping up with Marvel’s “Agents Of SHIELD” yet? If not, I understand you since the first season dragged on a little bit and at times was finding me questioning whether or not I wanted to stick with it. Of course I decided to rally behind it since once on the DVR its always easy to zip past the slow parts. Plus I wanted to see how much referencing was being done to the films that are coming out faster than ever. Anyway, the second season begins tonight and I’ve added the poster, premise and casting. Check it out.

Poster - Agents of SHIELD - S2

Premise: The series follows the character of Phil Coulson, with Clark Gregg reprising his role from the films, and his team of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division) agents. The season sees Coulson, the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., attempt to rebuild the organization with his team of agents and allies, following its collapse with the infiltration of the terrorist organization Hydra. They are forced to operate in secrecy due to being wanted fugitives, and hunt down the remaining threats of Hydra. Several characters from Marvel Cinematic Universe films and Marvel One-Shots appear throughout the season. (taken from Wikipedia).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m willing to stick with it because for me its fun to watch the connections when they happen from time to time. I’m a big fan of Coulsen and Agent May along with “Daisy” so its fun to see how they interact on behalf of building a more “ground levels fun to see. The possibilities for Marvel Cinematic Universe interplay are endless but they just have to keep it to format and make the characters work best for the bigger picture. Let’s see what happens because since its network television, if it tanks in the ratings it will surely get cancelled. Did you watch the first season or hesitated when fellow fans cited it as a bit slow? Will you join me in giving the second season a chance to keep the Marvel Studios stuff growing bit by bit? Let me know down in the comments below. See you next time.
