My new favorite show this fall is Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Did you get a chance to watch this week?
So we probably won’t be seeing the heroes from The Avengers movie on the show, but in the first episode, the movie was heavily referenced with clips on the “news.” I knew they would play off Agent Coulson’s death on The Avengers as a fake death, but if you watched the first episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., you may have noticed that there’s something shady about the trip to Tahiti where he supposedly recovered after Loki stabbed him. A S.H.I.E.L.D. doctor says that Coulson “really doesn’t know, does he?” Agent Hill then replies “No, and he can never find out.” Although I’m a superhero fan, I am not a comic book reader, so I don’t really know the back story with this character, but I can’t wait to find out. I really hope we see more of Cobie Smulders as Agent Hill since How I Met Your Mother is in its last season.
Are you watching? Will you watch?
