Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Ranking the First 10 Episodes of Season 1

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD

Agents of SHIELD is currently enjoying a holiday hiatus, with no new episodes until January 14, 2014. That makes this the perfect time to look back over the first ten episodes and see how they stack up.

‘Agents of SHIELD’ Season 1 Recap, Episode 10: ‘The Bridge’

Agents Of SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD came back from a one-week hiatus last night to drop its one and only December episode on us before heading out to the hills until January. TV executives call this a "mid-season finale", but that is a nonsensical concept, so let's call it "the Christmas hiccup" instead.

'The Bridge' marks an important point in the pacing of the season. The show's creators have used this episode to tie much of the first half together and propel us into the second half. In theory it should feel momentous. In practice, I was sadly underwhelmed.

‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 1 Recap, Episode 9: ‘Repairs’

Agents of Shield recap

Everyone get back on the plane, it's time for another budget-saving Agents of SHIELD bottle episode! After last week's Asgardian hijinx, we're once again bouncing around between the IKEA bunks of the boring SHIELD wingycarrier.

That's the bad news. The good news is that this was the first episode to give any real time or attention to Ming-Na Wen's Agent May. But did it tell us anything we didn't already know?

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep.1.08: ‘The Well’

Agents of SHIELD

 

What is it about former Star Trek actors that brings out the best in Marvel's Agents of SHIELD? Until this week I'd say the series' strongest episode was 1.05, "Eye-Spy," directed by Star Trek: Voyager's Roxann Biggs, aka B'Elanna Torres.

This week's episode was directed by Jonathan Frakes -- Star Trek: The Next Generation's William Riker -- and it was the new best episode of the series so far. More than that; it was the first episode I'd actually feel comfortable recommending to friends who gave up on the show after the lackluster pilot. (Or the lackluster second episode, or the lackluster third episode.)

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep.1.07: ‘The Hub’

Agents of SHIELD recap

The return of Agent Sitwell. The arrival of Agent Hand. These are the little things that make me happy, Agents of SHIELD. Was it really so hard to get to this place?

The seventh episode of Agents of SHIELD gave us our first real taste of SHIELD as a government agency since the pilot, and it was a better show because of it. It also developed the characters and pushed a couple of plots forward. Good job, Agents of SHIELD. We knew you had it in you.

Spoilers follow.

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep.1.06: ‘FZZT’

CA Agents Of SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD returned from a week off last night with a new episode that finally put the focus on one of its least developed characters. Obviously we're grading on a curve, there.

This being the sixth episode, I feel like I ought to now have a decent grasp on what drives all six of the show's main characters. Even with this episode, which puts the spotlight on Gemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), I still feel like I'm in the company of strangers. Spoilers follow.

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep.105: ‘Girl in the Flower Dress’

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD11

Episode five of Agents of SHIELD, "Girl in the Flower Dress." brings us almost a quarter of the way through the first season, and for the first time I didn't think the episode was better than last week's -- but I didn't think it was worse either. Has Agents of SHIELD found its plateau?

The main story this week wasn't as strong as last, but it compensated; this was the first episode since the pilot to really push any elements of the greater arc. For that reason, it was maybe the most satisfying episode yet.

SPOILERS FOLLOW.
