Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep. 1.04, ‘Eye-Spy’

CA Agents Of SHIELD

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to get a preview of this week's episode of Agents of SHIELD at New York Comic Con, alongside several hundred passionate fans of the show. My impression at the time was that episode 4, 'Eye-Spy', was easily the best episode yet.

However, I had to wonder if seeing the show on the big screen, surrounded by a cheering, hollering crowd, made me more forgiving than I would usually be. I was curious to see how the episode would hold up on a second viewing.

‘Don’t Touch Lola’: The Best Character On ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Made An Appearance At NYCC 2013

No matter how you feel about the recently launched Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. television series (so far we've been disappointed, but still hold out hope), I think we can all agree on one thing: The best written, most entertaining and most well-defined character, by a pretty wide margin, is Lola. There are no vague, uninteresting mysteries associated with Lola. You know her motivations, and you know exactly why she's with SHIELD. And really, can you say that about any other member of Agent Coulson's team so far (okay, maybe Skye)?

A Lot More Marvel TV Potentially On The Way

It looks like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is just the beginning of Marvel's network TV ambitions.

According to Deadline, the company has developed a 60-episode package of four drama shows and a miniseries -- one of which could be the rumored Agent Carter series -- to be shopped around to different networks including WGN America. Also in the mix are video streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Video.

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep. 1.03: “The Asset” [Spoilers]

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD

Week three, and what started as a recap/review series is turning into an inquest. Why isn't this show working, and can the cast and creators turn it around?

This was the first episode to introduce an established comics character to the Marvel movieverse, and it felt like a slight improvement, but I said that last week as well. The show is improving by such tiny increments that (a) it'll take forever to get to where it needs to be to sustain interest, and (b) it may not be improving at all -- I may just be acclimating.

SPOILER WARNING.

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep. 1.02: “0-8-4″ [Spoilers]

Agents of SHIELD made a big splash last week. Indeed, it was the biggest network drama debut in four years. This was no doubt in large part thanks to the good will generated by Marvel's blockbuster movies like Iron man and Thor. Unfortunately, despite the presence of Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon on the pilot, the episode could not match the confidence, charm or quality of the movies. We're now two episodes in and forced to ask; can a show set in a superhero universe work without superheroes?

SPOILER WARNING.

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD has finally arrived. It's one of the most anticipated new shows of the fall TV season for superhero fans, and thanks to the success of Marvel's movies that category now includes a lot more people than it used to.

Co-created and executive produced by Avengers auteur Joss WhedonAgents of SHIELD is set in the same universe as the Marvel movies, but it's the first live action Marvel TV show to reach the airwaves since the studio formed its television division in 2010, and Marvel already has plans to expand its TV presence further. Can the studio strike gold on the small screen as convincingly as it has on the big screen? ComicsAlliance will recap the show every episode to see how it's performing and offer what insights we can.

‘Agents of SHIELD’ Hints At Graviton For First Supervilliain In Episode 3: ‘The Asset’

I expect I wasn't alone in my disappointment among long-time Marvel readers when the cast and characters for ABC's Marvel Universe-set TV show Agents of SHIELD were revealed and there was no Clay Quatermain, no Jimmy Woo, no Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine. Was this show going to use any Marvel characters to build its world?

The synopsis for the third episode of the show finally confirms that it will. 'The Asset' features the first alter ego of an established character, and hints at his transformation into his super-villainous self.
