Well I have a new obsession… SHIELD… is a show that I recently saw on Netflix and I must say its wonderful. It took me almost a week to watch the 3 seasons on Netflix but it was worth it. I thought I would go through each episode and share my views and opinions.
Disclaimer: I pulled these photos of the internet only as a fan wanting to share with other fans and maybe give others that do not watch the show a good idea of the quality of the SHIELD show.
There maybe some spoilers but I will try to keep it to a minimum.
Season 1 episode 1 (pilot)
First a bit of history of SHIELD…. If you are a fan of Marvel comics and the blow out movies that have come out like Ironman, Avengers, and Captain America you probably know a bit about SHIELD. This TV show is a bit different but has the basic story of real people fighting evil and of course winning….
This first episode is an introduction to some pretty fabulous characters. We meet everyone’s favorite agent Coulson. Played by none other than Clark Gregg. Who is reprising his role from the movies. Yes he did die but you have to watch the show to understand who they need Coulson to come back from the dead.
We also meet very different types of characters like Malinda May played by the wonderful actor Ming-nu Wen. Her characters is dealing with a lot and as the show goes on you will find out what makes her tick. Then we have the “specialist” Grant Ward played by an adorable actor by the name of Brett Dalton. A walking killing machine. We also have the brains of the outfit who together make up FitzSimmons. Fitz is played by Ian De Caestecker and Simmons played by Elizabeth Henstridge who is the sweet Dr.
We see how Coulson find the star characters of this show Sky played by Chloe Bennet. A smart young girl who is a computer genious.
This is the main gang in SHEILD. In the pilot we see Coulson gather everyone and they come across Micheal Peterson who happens to have powers and they need to try to get him safe off the streets so they can help him be a hero.
They learn about each other as they hunt this man who is good at heart but is medically altered my forces intent on taking over the world we know.
The show is a drama but it has surprisingly funny jokes and personalities that make it interesting. No matter how dramatic the situation is there is always a joke or funny moment to help the viewers see these are real people in unique situations. They remember the heart of it all and always try to do good even if they have no choice.
There are computer generated scenes but they don’t take away from the great acting and emotional turmoil each has to go through.
A show like SHEILD can show us all the light inside the dark of everyone.
I hope you will watch the show with me and enjoy it like I do. Please follow me as we have some fun in SHEILD….
Glad your here!
