Critic Reviews for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 3

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD kicked off their third season with a bang in tonight's great opener Laws of Nature.

September 30, 2015 | Full Review…

In addition to being a thrilling experience that's truly laying every last card on the table, the new season of S.H.I.E.L.D. also has the largest amount of heart seen from the show to date.

September 28, 2015 | Full Review…

After a stuttering first couple of seasons, it appears the ABC Marvel Cinematic Universe spinoff's focus is shifting towards more superheroes and Inhumans, and generally ramping up the action has been a masterstroke.

What a great way to open up the new season.

October 2, 2015 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The ending cliffhanger ... was spectacular.

Top Critic

There's an entire galaxy of threats out there, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has never been better equipped to explore it.

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 3


My problems with the first season of Agents of SHIELD are well documented. As much of an improvement as Season 2 was over it, Season 3 is at least that much better again. Maybe more so.

This was a really good season. It managed to be a great followup to that amazing second season that we got last year and it also managed to get us emotionally enthralled in the entire season all the way through. Once again we find our agents and this time around they are searching for the newly created Inhumans while trying to fend off the threat that is Grant Ward and his newly re-established Hydra. But this season is also about the main characters as we had to say goodbye to a lot of them as the show went along. We said goodbye to Hunter and Morse who left to do their own show (which they won't really do anyway); we said goodbye to Lincoln who sacrificed himself to save the entire world; and last but not least, we said goodbye to a fan-favorite throgh all three seasons Grant Ward, who also bit the dust before being the host of a dangerous Inhuman called Hive. The performances in this season was great and I must say that Brett Dalton really impressed me this time around. It almost feels like he was born to play this character, even though the actor just seems so likeable. All-in-all: a great season with some great moments and some great supporting characters, both the returning and the new ones.
