Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. So I watched the first season of this show. I cannot believe how much I have come to love the characters on this show. I felt so betrayed when the betrayal happens. I have come to trust characters that we have been made to distrust. I try really hard to not get too caught up in the drama, but I cannot help it here. I think this show is really well done. I absolutely hate getting into a show because I know just how easily shows get cancelled anymore. I worry that this one will be a victim of “We don’t want girls watching.” Bastard TV execs.
What I can’t help but wonder here is if it is part of my anarchist side that loves this show. Coulson is operating nearly completely autonomously of the rest of S.H.I.E.L.D. He flouts their rules, he has a wonderful sense of who others are and what they need and when they need it. Betrayal happens, but no one is perfect. I have no doubt that Coulson blames himself, but I haven’t seen the second season yet to know how this bit plays out.
I will watch this second season hating every moment of drama and loving it in spite of myself. 🙂
