While agent SHIELD didn’t end last season with a series of low ratings, it did end with a season of low ratings, attracting a total of 2.08 million live viewers. With time shifting to Friday, season 5 will likely be the first show to drop below 2 million live viewers, especially if alien’s performance is any indication. SHIELD is in the red because of the aforementioned performance. Clark gregg’s favorite, however, is a set of 100 episodes that works well for syndication.

As long as “Friday night live” (especially ABC’s “Friday night live”) is doing well, there’s reason to be optimistic about “SHIELD” for years to comeAt the same time, it’s hard to underestimate how important this year has been for marvel. The season will end with 22 Avengers: Infinity War blockbusters.Ending the show at the end of the season might not only make financial sense, it might also be creative.

Started to like it

Austen Marshall – Semper Suspen

I really started to like the show around the third season, and by the time the 2017 ai-driven LMD arc hit, I was hooked. “SHIELD Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” for the most part, has the power that Marvel films haven’t had so far (with few exceptions) : to make us laugh and cry in the same short space of time. Clark Gregg, the star of ‘S.H.I.E.L.D. “Game of thrones” season 5 focused on carrying that legacy on its back, but there were some missteps.

With an ominous theme, bad things always pile up on the crew, so much so that you really don’t feel like they have a chance to get out alive. At the end of the day, when most of them do, it feels like their actions still have an impact on them, something that was well communicated in the previous season.

As much as I like SHIELD more and more, it’s easy to poke a hole in it the size of a Swiss cheese. The writers still don’t seem to know what to do with the yo-yo, a nonhuman robot that can run so fast that it seems to stop time and return to its original position. They created a symbolic monster, a monster that basically ends all conflict before it begins, and they had to come up with some strange ways to curb her power, some of which were very contrived. They also often follow her character aimlessly, placing most of the burden of her budding personality on her partner, mike — one of the best parts of the show. I miss the smaller focus arcs of the past few seasons, but this year SHIELD focuses on two things: the future and taking the action to infinity war. The former was a very bold and tricky strategy, and I think they succeeded. For a while, SHIELD. You never know what’s going to happen to the future of this season.

Truly enjoying the show

It was somewhere around season three that I started truly enjoying the show, and by the time the artificial intelligence-driven LMD arc hit in 2017, I was hooked. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has the power to do what basically no Marvel film (with few exceptions) has done to date: make us laugh and cry in the same short span. Clark Gregg, S.H.I.E.L.D. star Agent Coulson always said that people should give the show time to grow, and while I’d argue four years is far too long of a wait, it’s worth investing in at this point. Season five mostly carries that legacy upon its back with a few missteps.

S.H.I.E.L.D.

While I’ve grown fond of S.H.I.E.L.D. it’s very easy to poke Swiss cheese-sized holes into it. The writers still don’t seem to know how to handle Yo-Yo, the Inhuman that can run so fast that it seemingly stops time, only to return to her original location. They created a figurative monster, one that could basically end every conflict before it starts, and they’ve had to come up with weird ways to curb her power, some of which are incredibly hokey. They’re also constantly wandering aimlessly with her character arc, putting much of the burden of her budding personality onto her partner, Mack — one of the brightest parts of the show.

John Hannah and Mallory Jansen

The lack of John Hannah and Mallory Jansen, two of the strongest parts of last season, is felt, but others, whether it’s newcomers or old friends like Adrian Pasdar, have stepped up. Really though, the trophies should go to the principal cast, who are stuck together like a family for this long despite being on the bubble every year. Ming-Na Wen is one of the most underrated action performers on TV right now, and Chloe Bennet managed to transform Skye into the formidable Daisy mostly on her own, evolving and learning alongside of the show with charisma and relatable flaws to boot.

I miss the smaller focused arcs of the past few seasons, but this year S.H.I.E.L.D. has mostly settled on two acts: the future, and a lead into Infinity War. The former was a very bold and tricky maneuver, and I think they pulled it off. For a while, there S.H.I.E.L.D. pivoted into a bleak sci-fi operation, more so than it ever has been in the past, with some of its darkest sections to date.

The thing about the future portion of this season is that you never really know what’s going to happen. Coupled with an ominous theme bad things were always piling onto the crew, to the point where you really felt that they had no chance of making it out alive. By the end of it, when most of them do, it feels like their actions still have weight to them, something that was wonderfully communicated in the previous season. It’s not so much cheesy callbacks as it is genuine character development, as the team works to make this pseudo-MCU world one worth exploring. It’s also nice to see Marvel throw S.H.I.E.L.D. a bone, giving them at least one worthy villain and the entire Kree race to work with.
