Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Used to be Terrible. Now it's Terrific.
by Todd VanDerWerff
I've watched all of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and at the beginning, it was pretty awful. The show, now well into its second season, has improved drastically and it became some of my favorite weekly viewing. As Vox's Todd VanDerWerff notes, the series "seems designed to turn every single negative on the show into a positive through sheer force of will."
