Saying Goodbye to MARVEL Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

To be honest, I looked forward to this show. But after six episodes, seems like it’s going to be another show to be dropped off the list.

Yes, when the first few teasers came out, we were all in the same page of excitement that MARVEL is venturing into a TV series with real people. We all thought, “now HEROES will be just part of history.” Apparently, it didn’t reconcile with our excitement.

We have to give credit to the people behind this show who tirelessly give everything they have to showcase a hi-tech production and thrilling stunts. However, these are not enough to create a TV phenomenon. These and a great story. S.H.I.E.L.D lacks the latter. Add to that lack is the awkward casting.

The Outsider thinks that there’s an identity crisis in the show. It’s supposed to have a serious approach with some goofy characters. However, the mixture of both serious actors and goofy ones turned out to be awkward. Is it the directing? No idea. Is it the scriptwriting? No idea. Is it the casting? Could be.

Here’s saying that before this season approaches its season finale (or could be series finale), we’re dropping it. Yes, we’re dropping it like a hot kamote!

A series without making the goal clear with its viewers.

One thing is show is best at: teaser. It’s good until you watch the actual episode.

To our Filipino readers who await to watch this on local cable TV, try it but can’t assure you’d fall in love to it like the case of HEROES or 24 or something else better.
