3 Scientists, 3 Agents and a Coulsen of SHIELD, and an agent of Hydra
Agents of SHIELD stars Clark Gregg as Phil Coulsen, Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Simmons.
The second season picks up where Season 1 finishes. Hydra is still a big threat and SHIELD doesn’t really exist but Coulsen is trying to build it back with the box that Nick Fury gives to him and he is still writing strange things on the wall. We get to meet some new faces Lance Hunter (Nick Blood), Mack (Henry Simmons and Triplett (B.J. Britt) joining SHIELD and we still have evil Ward (Brett Dalton) working for Hydra who is now under the control of Daniel Whitehall. The show continues the same way it ended, with them trying to take Hydra.
The show has some interesting plot points and you can tell the show producers listened to the response from the first season, but Hydra becomes the secondary story and after the half way point in the series with the twist they forget completely about Hydra until the Age of Ultron tie in! The acting is still pretty solid, the CGI again is solid but with more superpowers being in the show they had to step up. The fighting is pretty basic, I think, considering what we have now seen in Daredevil.
I like where the show is going but I feel like the show could be a few episodes shorter so we don’t get as many filler episodes, 13 episodes like Daredevil or 8 like Agent Carter. Agents of SHIELD could learn a lot from Daredevil and I really hope the producers notice how well Daredevil has done. I don’t want Agents of SHIELD to get as violent or bloody as the Netflix show because I don’t think it would work.
So for season 2 of Agents of SHIELD, I rate it 7/10! A strong improvement from the first season but a lot in can improve from by learning from Daredevil, Agent Carter and The Flash.
What do you think of Agents of SHIELD and how do you think the show could be improved?
