Agents Of Shield "Pilot" Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!*

You know, I'm always a little nervous to watch a new show and I normally don't watch it right away. I wait until they are a few episodes in and then start watching it and it's very unusual for me to like a show from the beginning, but let me tell you, this was one of those odd times! I watched the first episode and I am loving the series! I'm not like hooked on it, but I'm at least wanting to watch the next episode. It normally takes a certain episode for me to really love the show. I'm not even sure how to explain what kind of episode I look for, but normally one really catches my attention and makes me love the show. It happened just recently with another show, called Person Of Interest. I've been catching up on that show and am half way through the second season and there was an awesome episode that caught my eye and I'm obsessed with the show now.

But let's get back to this series. Let me tell you though, if you have not watched Avengers, you'll be pretty confused in some parts. The main one being the star himself: Phil Coulson. Yep, you read that name right! How awesome was it to find out that he didn't die?! It was all a set up to motivate the Avengers. He's the star of this series and the head of the Shield department. I'm still a bit confused on what they do, but I believe they help super heros. 

There is a small story line though that they mentioned that we have no clue about. Though, we might now. Haven't watched anymore episodes yet. But anyways, there's something that Phil does not know about and can never know about, but it looks like some people do know about it. Whatever it is, it must be major. I wonder what it could be? 

I'm not sure who my favorite character is yet. That normally takes a while. Phil was hilarious. The two scientists people or whatever they were, they were fun as well. But the person who has caught my eye for right now is: Grant Ward. But this could change. It normally takes me a while. Sometimes a whole season to find out who my favorite character is.

They are trying to figure out who the Rising Tide is and that was an interesting twist. The lady who was in charge of or at least the one who was hacking into places, was apart of Rising Tide (I believe she was the head - sorry, it was hard for me to keep track of sometimes) ends up helping the Shield and perhaps becoming part of the team. 

So, their first assignment was to help this super hero who ended up having some stuff injected into him that would eventually kill him. But they save him and all is fine, for now. Until they get a call that they are having to go after something called: 804 and no one knows what it is.
