It’s finale time, Evil Geeks! After a season that some said started off painfully slow and a roller-coaster of a back-end of the season, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD finally wrapped up its first season this week in typical Marvel Cinematic U fashion; with action, intrigue, plot twists, and a guest cameo. With SHIELD on the ropes and Hydra on the upswing, will Coulson and his chosen team be able to overcome the nefarious powerhouse trio of Garrett, Ward, and of course the cybernetic hench droid, Deathlok? Let’s get to the reviewing!
Evil Geeks, it wasn’t that long ago, perhaps maybe 3 or 4 months back when this show was first getting off the ground that one of our readers said in the comment section that they were waiting for Agent’s of SHIELD to have a “HOLY SHIT!!!” moment to really get them into the story. I assured them that with Joss Whedon at the helm, this show would most certainly have a moment like that in store for the audience. After the first half of the season I was starting to worry that I would have to eat those words, but the second half of the season has been EXPLOSIVE beyond all hopes, with nearly every single episode giving us a jaw dropper. With surprise after surprise being rained down on us, would the Marvel U’s first foray into television be able to keep us in suspense? After Turn, Turn, Turn, the answer to that question is a resounding “YYYUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUPPPPPPP!!!!”
