"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." returns for a dynamic, action-packed second season, with newly appointed Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) – now the keeper of the secrets - charged with rebuilding and restoring government and public trust in S.H.I.E.L.D. in the wake of the events of “Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” where it was revealed evil Hydra agents had infiltrated the organization. Ever since the existence of super heroes and aliens became public knowledge after the Battle of New York, the world has been trying to come to grips with this new reality. Agent Phil Coulson, who had died at the hands of Loki during the battle, was resuscitated and brought back into action, assembling a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division). S.H.I.E.L.D.'s mission: to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive. But the biggest threat was growing from within, as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s old enemy, Hydra – a dangerous extremist group Captain America fought against in World War II – had secretly infiltrated and infected the organization at the highest levels. Once revealed to the public, S.H.I.E.L.D., including Coulson and his team, was discredited and made to look like the enemy. The world now views S.H.I.E.L.D. as untrustworthy, and it's Coulson's job to change that opinion. Director Phil Coulson will also be joined by Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), Agent Leo Fitz, (Iain De Caestecker), Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) and others.

Amazing line-up of guests and new cast members this season(Lucy Lawless, Kyle Maclachlan, Adrianne Palicki, etc.). I re-watch episodes so many times(for details) that a season pass is a must. You can see the love and effort(and HUGE budget) they put into every episode of what is currently my favorite show.
Season 2 off at a sprint
Season 2 of Agents of SHIELD kicks off at the same quality last season ended on- that is to say, quite a few notches above the merely okay “monster of the week” show that Season 1 started as. But that’s not surprising, given how the show improved after it could grapple with the radical shifts occurring in The Winter Soldier. If you followed the show through to the end of last season, that shouldn’t be surprising.
But it’s amazing how the first 3 episodes of Season 2 have raised the bar in every way. Each week the action is more intense and creative, the threats are both more visceral and more intriguing, the plot is tighter even as it flows better. The real strength is in the character growth, though. Everybody finds themselves in new roles, put under different pressures. Even if you liked the crew last season, it had to be admitted that the best of them could be card-board cutouts. No more.
The agents and those around them are all reacting to the changing dynamics forced by changing circumstances, and they’re doing it in more nuanced and interesting ways. There’s virtually no one in the broadened cast who I’m not interested in right now, including certain people I had previously wished into the cornfield. The producers are also bringing in new characters, but wisely doing so at a reasonable pace. At the same time that I can’t wait to see more of some of these more background characters, I’m very glad that Marvel is letting them unfold more naturally.
Even if you gave up on this show last season, it’s really worth a look now. It’s truly one of the best adventure shows on right now, and if it keeps improving at this pace will become one of the best in a very long while.
A Tale of Two Halves (of Season One)
The first half of Season One was a bit slow. Once Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. hit the second half of the season, with the two movies (THOR: THE DARK WORLD and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER); and the crossovers happened, is when things began to take off.
