The highly anticipated, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., premiered on Tuesday night to many mixed feelings from critics and fans alike. The show was screened to an amazing 11.9 million television viewers, which isn’t surprising considering the massive amount of hype the show has garnered since The Avengers blew up box offices. Its director, Joss Whedon, has done nothing but gather attention toward this show, showing it off as a cool new television series to correspond the aftermath of the first Avengers movie, and introduce a new cast of heroes who handle the smaller stuff the big guys, like Hulk and Captain America, don’t.
Joss Whedon, his brother Jed Whedon, and Jed’s wife Maurissa Tancharoen, all worked together to craft a television show of minor spy action and X-Files type dilemmas. The show takes place in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, brings back Agent Colson, and is sure to gather even more momentum by its second episode. But overall, the pilot was just…okay.
