Quick Review: Agents of Shield
A lot of fun, this is Joss Whedon's most accessible TV show since Buffy. Like Buffy, it's a team of misfits tracking down the supernatural. All with great dialogue and exciting fights.
The standout oddly enough is Clark Gregg's Phil Coulson, as equal parts insurance salesman/badass. He glibly explains away his death in "The Avengers," but then other characters drop the "He doesn't know, does he?" which is of course one of those perfect Whedon teases. I haven't read any other review, but I'm going to bet on him being a clone and/or robot. Then again Whedon never takes the easy route so we'll see.
As far as being accessible, you have to admit it's less complicated than "Dollhouse" or "Firefly." You don't even have to be a Marvel Comics geek to enjoy it.
