Presently, ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is continuing its way through a great second season while turning every single negative aspect on the show into something positive. All of this is being accomplished through a sheer force of will.
Earlier, it used to be quite terrible but presently they are surely rocking it! Viewers were disappointed with the earlier episodes in the first season. However, the makers have transformed that disappointment into geeky delight. Earlier, the series was designed as something that would play heavily within the continuity of movies in Marvel Studios.
However, this fact is not true, and it’s getting clearer with the passage of time. Currently, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D has its own corner in the Marvel Universe, and it’s enjoying it. The show is glowing with love for its source material along with creative restrictions that are necessary for being a small part of a much greater world.
Critics are currently claiming that being shut off from the Marvel Universe has provided the show a unique identity of its own. This is certainly a healthy new development for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
In the beginning, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D started as a kind of superhero X-Files. A team of S.H.I.E.L.D agents (read secret super-powered agents) were led by Phil Coulson (played by Clark Gregg) in order to get involved in all forms of mischief. In the end, the things were all wrapped up while making way for a new episode. The show had a comic universe that was started decades ago.
However, the show was never interested in playing around with the Marvel Universe lore. Sadly, it was painful and utterly boring to watch. Finally, the series started getting more interesting after 2/3rds of the completion of season 1. From here, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D turned from well-funded government operatives to underdogs.
