So last Thursday (9/26/2013) I was able to see the first episode of "Agents of SHIELD" on ABC broadcasting

Before seeing the first episode I was very on the fence about the whole thing, I was interested in seeing a show that would revolve completely around SHIELD without assistance from Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, or even Bruce Banner. On the other hand I was afraid the whole show would end up being a very rushed cheep attempt to cash in on the success of The Avengers movie

After seeing the first episode..... I'm still on the fence but not as much as I was before.
The first impressions given were that it will continue to be full of action and also quite funny, and although it is a bit odd that all the characters seem to be relatively new agents we may get to see them grow in experience and skill.

However despite these good qualities I'm still nervous that series will end up falling short

What do you think?

I tried watching this series and could not understand the story very well, plus I need to use my hobby time for anime/manga.

It was fun enough. It started a bit slow, but the end of the first season was great. I didn't like, however, how closely it tied into Captain America 2. You really needed to see the movie at the appropriate point to get the most of the series.

I watched a few episodes and lost interest, even though i am a big Marvel fanboy. Maybe because it is on tv, not netflix.

Of course it tied in closely to Captain America 2. It wouldn't have been a very good part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe otherwise. Besides, with it tying in so closely (and really, how did you expect things not to go to shit after SHIELD was disbanded?), it means that we can have a whole season of watching them rebuild SHIELD before Avengers 2 comes out.

Yes, it sucks that to fully enjoy the experience one had to watch Captain America 2. For me and my boyfriend, however, we'd already planned on seeing it. And our theater has $5 Tuesdays, so we don't waste money going to movies we want to see that way.
