Agents of Shield season 5

Post by Magik84 » 03 Dec 2017, 10:43

So what did people think of this? I like that things are changed up for this season, keeps things interesting. I presume we'll still get some earth stuff with Fitz and maybe find out more about the weird guy from opening.

I really liked it. Definitely starting off strong, though I wish the “roaches” were honest to god Brood. I thought the evil Kree lady with her spheres of death and the head Kree were equally creepy and awesome.

Yo-Yo’s line about SPEAR is a reference to to SHIELD’s sister space agency, SWORD, from the comics. It seems like Fox called dibs on it since it debuted in Astonishing X-Men first. That’d explain why its mention in Thor was cut. Or its inception will be the culmination of this season, where the MCU movies will promptly ignore it.

Honestly I don't think where someone/something debuts really has much sway in whether Marvel or Fox holds the rights to something. Or else surely the Kree and Skrulls wouldn't be featuring in MCU films? SWORD has featured just as prominently in non X stories so I reckon Marvel has just as much of a claim on it. I hadn't heard about a reference being cut from Thor though.

I want to like this Season. But oh god... Time Travel? Srsly? All the things I hoped they were going to do with this Season. So much ability to get into the MCU Cosmic and we get "Crappy Future...... IN SPAAAAAAAAAACE!" MCU got Ms. Marvel and Warlock? Man we could have had Quasar! Nope. We need time travel.

Doc Brown is rolling over in his grave. At 88 MPH.

I hope this is more "Pod Arc" nonsense so maybe we can go back to this feeling like a show about Agents Of SHIELD without waiting three more seasons.

I knew almost instantly that this was time-travel. I'm enjoying this so far and I'm glad to see Yo-Yo bumped up to regular.

During the opening scenes, the guy obviously knew them. There's no way he'd know the entire main SHIELD team by name if they hadn't been given some sort of culty status. He spoke of them like he was a fan, not a contact. There's no way a legend like that could grow in the space of three or so years. And, of course, he dies a split second before he can drop the bomb that it's the future, because TV. Plus, all the tech on that ship looked like it came from Earth but was way old. Especially the computer displays, which looked like stuff I played on when I was little. Add that to the fact that they arrived at slightly different times and that they were expected, I just put two and two together.

As the idea that they'd in fact travelled forward in time became more and more apparent, I figured there was going to be a second twist -- they were going to send a distress call to Earth, right? What if they were actually at Earth in the future and didn't even know it? I had that part figured out halfway through the first episode too, though that was more speculation based on how SHIELD's plot structure tends to work.

Didn't see the twist about them being on Earth but like EphX as soon as Coulson started speaking to Virgil about them being legends I saw the time travel twist straight away.

Miss Fitz already. Hurry up and show me why he wasn't sent forward in time and how he's going to rescue them.

I did like Emma's line about how she'll just invent time travel. Plays up the usual cliche of a science expert in one field automatically understands all sciences.

Don't tease me! I still want to pitch a story to Marvel to bring back Genis and Phyla.

Skrulls. The answer is always skrulls. Even if not now, it will be retconned later so just say Skrulls now.

Okay this was a solid ep. Fitz's story is enjoyable and we got the return of Lance Hunter. Mentions of Bobbi. I'm feeling nostalgic for Season 3 again.

Really enjoyed this episode. Fitz is probably my favourite of the AoS cast so it being a centric episode for him was a plus. Loved how AoS isn't afraid to pick up older plot points such as Robin, and pays tribute to how long the show has lasted after the initial patchy start.

The presence of a millennia old recorder also shows how out of the box the show is allowed to get, it's almost like the old it's Centipede/Hydra conventions of the early series have been chucked out the window and gives us the chance to view a really broad view of the MCU.

I can't say this season is for me, but it is very good as a sci-fi tv show. They've really come into their own over the last couple seasons. It was nice to see Lance again, and I'm intrigued how they are going to get back to their regular time period. Like, in this future are all earth's heroes dead? Do they already know about Thanos?

Yeah, it's an interesting season, but not by favorite by any stretch. It feels super pointless. I'm hoping this story ends soon and we go back to the present.

It's good seeing Fitz being a front-line Shield agent, and show's his growth, playing the under-cover brute to perfection, with quite a few hangovers from his time in the Framework, but I'd like to see more of Shield being Shield, even in the current displacement. Mack's done nothing at all, and Coulson's been very muted. It's almost like being out of time has a neutered them too much.

Has nobody in-universe had the revelation that either: 1. Quake isn't the world destroyer, or 2. she succeeds in getting back?
