Ward helps Agent 33 find a changeable face just as Shield is recovering from yet another crisis. Meanwhile, Hunter is taken in by the “real Shield” to be indoctrinated.
Well, the last few of these episodes were really good I thought, so I guess I should have expected one of these to be a stinker. TV shows are like movies, I mean, obviously, but, unlike movies, you can have a really bad episode without destroying an entire franchise or something. People will just think, “Huh? That wasn’t very good.” But still tune in next week to see if they won’t like the next one either, and the process continues forever until the show sucks more than it doesn’t. I guess it’s just a process of finding the right frequency of well-written episodes with defined characters who operate with reason and ones like these that are just phoned-in garbage episodes with little to no redeeming factors.
Okay, I like the parts with Ward and Agent 33, enough that I thought about halfway through the show that “they should have just made the whole episode about these two….” because nothing else happens at all with any other character! I mean, there are some “important” conversations going on, but you know they’re just going to sum up anything of actual value in one sentence later on when it actually becomes important. Time is the most precious resource on Earth. I really hate coming out of something feeling like mine was wasted…
+3: I liked the bits with Ward, I guess the conversation with Skye and Coulson was okay
-1: The worst thing any type of “entertainment” can do is be boring
