Critic Reviews for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (4)

I don't know exactly where they want to go with this new season, especially since they have hinted at the existence of parallel lands, but I find it fascinating. [Full Review in Spanish]

Aug 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Overall I enjoyed the season, it didn't reach some of the highs of last season, but didn't hit previous lows. Looking forward to Season 6.

Feb 3, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

'Inside Voices' offers new insight about both Coulson and the Gravitonium that might help us understand the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 mystery.

Sep 18, 2018 | Full Review…

I'll be amazed when they get out of it all. They're agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., after all, and that carries weight.

Sep 18, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Oh man, I was really into the second half of this week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. -- like, perched on the edge of my seat and all. And then... it just kinda ended?

Jul 18, 2018 | Full Review…

For as much of a bummer as it was to see Fitz turn on his friends, "The Devil Complex" was a pretty fantastically written and acted episode.

Jul 18, 2018 | Full Review…

It fits for the 100th episode -- a lot of grandiose speeches, all the feels, and then a fun, giant nugget of truth at the end.

Aug 1, 2018 | Full Review…

The Season 5 finale of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. took us on a wild ride, and more than a few tears were shed before all was said and done.

Aug 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Great cast, great twists, and great writing all around.

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Fans who found S.H.I.E.L.D. growing more exciting and innovative in season 4 have been rewarded with a mind-bending new reality in season 5.

Jun 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Instead of wondering what might have been, for now at least the show did what it's done best as it's grown beyond its roots as an MCU tie-in to an excellent series in its own right.

Jun 29, 2018 | Full Review…

It was a wonderful tribute to the importance of Agents of SHIELD in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it was also goddamn terrifying and I almost had a heart attack.

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 5

  • Oct 20, 2019
    The entire season didn't feel like episodes. It felt like a long drawn out psychological thriller, and it didn't feel related to the Marvel universe at all. I thought I was watching a scifi horror movie trying to decipher what was real and illusion. It took ten episodes to tie up some of the primary loose ends, and I'm still left torn between wanting to shut it off, and watching one more episode to see if they get back to the original feel of the first few series.
  • Sep 29, 2019
    The fifth season of Agents of Shield starts off so well: the mystery is intriguing and different enough to feel like a new challenge for our heroes. About three quarters in though it really starts to drag and this season would have really benefited from being about 6 episodes shorter to tighten the storyline, but the last few episodes are great, but they do leave me a bit worried about the future of the show and I miss when the show interwove with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so was disappointed there wasn't any mention of Infinity War.

    Very Stressful! Made Me Cry! 10/10
  • Sep 20, 2019
    Es la mejor temporada que he visto.
  • Sep 06, 2019
    When you think this series can't go better, think twice!
  • Aug 04, 2019
    Love this show and the cast...they are amazing...the writing is flawless and exciting. Never want this show to end
  • Jul 23, 2019
    This one it's a freaking mine gold, I loved every episode, besides the budge being medium these guys gave everything from they to gives us a dope season. The entire cast did an amazing job in this one, but Chloe Bennet acting was celestial. 9/10
  • Jul 06, 2019
    Once again, another great season following up from the crazy happening of season 4. I like 4 more, but this season still does some insane stuff with the Kree, a bit of time travel, and a heartbreaking finale.
  • Jul 03, 2019
    after season 4 the things take a shitty turn. omg, I loved it but it is all so difficult, depressing. time travel, aliens, superpowers, mind control. give this people (and the ones who watch it!) a break for christ sake
  • Jun 22, 2019
    Too dark and it didn't match Infinity War
