In theory a second season for Agents of SHIELD should have been a slam dunk, but it really hurt itself with the incredibly slow pace of it’s storytelling in the first half of the season. A lot of that stuff makes sense now after the fact, but that doesn’t change the fact that for several months the show seemed to be going nowhere at all.
I would hope that the second season will resemble what we’ve been getting for the last third of the season a lot more than the first half. Really these last few shows have been great.
Meanwhile Agent Carter has been long rumored, but it’s nice to have it confirmed because the short was good and you know it’s Haley Atwell so there’s really not much to complain about there. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that we got to see some old-fashioned SHIELD gear in this weeks Agents of SHIELD episode. Marvel love to tie all their properties together in one way or another.
