Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. s1e13: T.R.A.C.K.S.

Air Date: February 4, 2014

Rating: 9/10

In search of a dangerous device, the team gets caught up in a train heist. However, when things go south everyone on the team is in danger.

I really like heist movies, and the like, and I’m pleased to see this show trying something in a slightly different genre than what we’ve come to expect. I also really like the non-linear storytelling in this one of showing us something happening then flashing back and showing us how it got to this point over and over again throughout the episode. It’s a neat storytelling technique and hopefully this is a sign of cool things to come. But again, this remains to be seen.

The last 15 minutes or so, the story kind of gets a bit melodramatic, though it might be deserved this time. It still feels like it’s just there to get an emotional response out of the audience and, maybe, set up the next episode. Still, it’s off putting in what is otherwise a great episode.

SCORING:

+10: Very entertaining and fun, for the most part

-1: Just a tad melodramatic towards the end when I’m not sure it’s called for
