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

September 18, 2018
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.

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.

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.

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.

It's interesting that Agents of SHIELD has become a bridge between the Marvel Earth and the Marvel Cosmos. Even Iron Man and Captain America haven't really interacted with aliens yet.

Solving their problem solves nothing; seeing the disastrous results of their future actions fixes nothing. For a genre-loving audience fluent in time travel paradoxes, this obstacle shouldn't be as compelling as it is.

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.

It was something of a genius masterstroke to give the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. an adventure in space that the Guardians of the Galaxy would fit right into, with the universe of Firefly thrown in there for good measure, too.

Aside from the setting, the characters we've grown to know and love over these past few years still don't skip a beat.

This is a hard reset for the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. storyline, and a welcome one that goes big and isn't afraid to experiment with massive large-scale storytelling. What a fantastic twist.
December 3, 2017
Despite the seriousness of the situation, the one-liners were flying fast and furious throughout.

Lots of drama, lots of action, lots of balls in the air, with powers and aliens and space ships and time travel.

Overall, there's a lot to love about what S.H.I.E.L.D. is doing in the new season. It's a crazy ride fans are going to be glad they've stayed aboard for.

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

'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.

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.

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?
December 3, 2017
Agents of SHIELD went big for its Season 5 story, and while there was plenty of engaging action and team-building turmoil there was also a sense of tragic transience.
