Summer is winding down, which means the fall premiere week is just a few short weeks away. This upcoming television season brings us many new series from all of the networks, but one in particular sticks out as having the most potential.
"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is on the top of many critics' must watch lists for fall TV and it's on ours too. Marvel's Avengers series has been extremely popular among movie goers, but will they continue to watch on the small screen as well?
"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." attempts to explore the unknown world of the S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division) organization that is present in all of Marvel's movies. Viewers will get a closer look at who makes up this group and what exactly their job entails. Agent Coulson makes his return to lead the group, while Agents Ward, May, Fitz and Simmons join him to fight crime around the world.
Perhaps one of the reasons that "S.H.I.E.L.D." is highly anticipated is that it is not your typical run-of-the-mill cop drama. Yes, there will probably be law enforcement and gunfights, but chances are great the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. won't be solving a crime every episode. Plus, there will be superheroes and since NBC's "Heroes" there really hasn't been many superheroes on TV lately.
Marvel is keeping its baby under tight wraps, which means unfortunately, there aren't many spoilers (other than guest stars) about for the new series. Those who were lucky enough to see the premiere episode at Comic Con were warned about recording it for public viewing and those who had an open laptop or cell phone were not received kindly. Luckily for us TV viewers, the premiere of "S.H.I.E.L.D." is a little over a month away, so we won't have too much longer to get a peak inside Marvel's organization.
Check out the official trailer for Marvel's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and be sure to watch the premiere on September 24th at 8pm on ABC.
We hope that the awesomeness Marvel created on the big screen can transfer over to the small screen because we'd hate to see Marvel and its superheroes fail. You will definitely be finding us in front of the TV screen Tuesday nights this fall , but then again that's where we always are!
