Finally an episode of SHIELD that is interesting as it deals with superhero abilities and superheros in a superhero world. It also kind of continues a previous story thread of a larger organization and finally gets a bit more personal. This grows my interest into the show not by a whole lot, as there is still a lot more the show has to be done and I sadly know that the next episode might return to its usual mediocre, impersonal and procedural type episodes.
The first Marvel TV Show is already a hit with it's first episode viewership being over 11 million American viewers. The question on most people's minds will be was it good? Is it a good sidekick to the movie franchise, does it hold up on its own and can it go against other rival comic book TV shows? The answers are yes, yes and for now not even close.
