Okay, so we’ve had some trailers, posters and news reports on a new TV show coming called Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. If you don’t know what that is you’ve been living under a rock or simply don’t read news online. Maybe you’re not big into comic book movies. Which is okay, I’ll explain because not everyone is die-heart comic book geeks.
What are Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
Basically, it’s a spin-off TV show that will be after the Avengers movie that’s following Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Basically it’s going to be you’re CSI/Law in Order but superheroes if you want me to break it down easy for you. You can watch the trailer below and decide for yourself.
So now you know about it the question I have for you and myself. Will it be any good? The answer isn’t easy because first I have seen as much and read about it as much anyone else with a web browser. It gives me a high production value feeling from the trailer and that makes me really happy and sad at the same time. Because this is a tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this means we could have some big name stars like maybe Robert Downey Jr. making an appearance.
The problem I’m seeing is the show might end up causing issues for the plot, they’ll have to keep things closely watched story wise and won’t be able to go too far ahead. Because of the nature of this, you’re going to have to at some point have some superhero action and that means special effects. This can cause trouble for weekly shows like this.
Do you remember Heroes?
I sure do and I loved that show, it was awesome and it’s sad that it ended so soon and on a cliffhanger note at that at season 4. This is why I think Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be doom from the start. They might end it sooner than it needs to be because it might be too costly to keep going or they value of production and story will suffer. Also what happens if Marvel decided it doesn’t need the show anymore and focus its time on other projects.
To be honest I don’t see this show going more than maybe two seasons at best. I know there are a bunch of Marvel fans out there wanting this and wanting good things but realistically, if it goes more than two full seasons I’ll be shocked. What do you think? Do you think Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be good? Or do you think it’ll just be mediocre at best?
