“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” is perhaps ABC’s most anticipated premiere of the season, and for good reason.
Agent Coulson (Gregg) leads a new team that serves as “the line between the world and the much weirder world” in this spinoff of “The Avengers.”
“The Avengers” without all the really expensive stuff, and the moderately expensive stuff, and The Avengers. Like most of co-creator Joss Whedon’s work, “S.H.I.E.L.D.,” which burrows down into Marvel lore, is a little cheeky and a little irreverent. Also like much of Whedon’s work, it feels like it’s going to take a while to really warm up to many of the quirky characters. But anything that offers more Agent Coulson should be welcomed with open arms. Clark Gregg is just that good.
What: “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
When: 8 p.m. Sept. 24, KTNV-TV, Channel 13
