Some Final Thoughts On The Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Two

4 of 10

7. Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

(Note: This is taking all of the first two seasons into consideration.)

The first steps into the MCU on TV  began here, which honestly was a pretty cool choice to see. I enjoyed getting the whole super-spy team angle with a great group of people with various personalities. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been a fun ride, as we were always going new places with the team and connecting to the films. Finding out more information and getting a huge Inhumans back story connection was really cool as well.

In Season 1, Coulson and Ward were the lead characters that kept me interested, along with Fitz, who was the character you grew feelings for hoping he would eventually end up with Simmons. In the second season, Agent Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse came in to take that spotlight from Ward and had me focusing on her instead, giving us a huge back story and letting us see her pick up both of her batons and kick some butt with them. Other cool unforgettable comic appearances came from the first appearance of Peggy Carter since Captain America: The First Avenger, the Absorbing Man, Scorch, Mr. Hyde, Lorelei, Lady Sif, Deathlokand more! I loved tuning into this every week.

What was the downside? One of the main ones was and still is Skye, or should I say Daisy Johnson. Skye has to be the most flip-floppy character in the whole MCU and is just too annoying for me to handle at times. Just like any show, of course, there were some down episodes and it took some time for the characters to give me a feeling as to whether or not I liked them or where they were heading within the flow of the narrative. Overall, great series and a good first attempt for MCU TV.
