So... I really don't like these characters. I think living Coulson is one of the biggest reasons the TV and movie narratives are at such a distance, I think he's a poor choice of lead and he's nothing like the guy I loved from the shorts, I think Skye was overcooked, and Fitzsimmons undercooked and incredibly redundant, May is too easy to make boring and Ward was only being interesting because he was nothing like what he was originally thought, which is incidentally when Daisy started getting better too. I've spoken about how the show was entirely misguided in becoming a spiritual successor to Firefly instead of next-gen X-Files/Fringe like it should have been...

But...

Agents of SHIELD Season 4 was some of the very best plotting in a 20+ episode genre show I have ever seen. This year I'm binging my superhero shows on Netflix and I honestly wish I had saved this for last now, because it's making the plotting of the others feel absolutely abysmal. They absolutely exhausted Ghost Rider, The Darkhold, Aida, Radcliffe, LMDs and the Framework, without going past that to exhaust the audience with them, and then brought it all together for a great finale that was Hell, and Inhumans and AI all at once, without really betraying any of them. As a villain, Aida actually brought a really cool angle to the AI gone bad, that of a spurned lover, and in the process she became a more fearsome, dangerous and compelling killer robot than the MCU's Ultron. I am impressed.

Still have a love/hate with this show, but man... I gotta show respect where it's due.

I'm happy ABC let AoS breath long enough to get us to Season 4. It was really great considering what came before.

Jeff Ward Set To Recur In Season 5
Quote:
We’ve learned that Jeff Ward (Manson’s Lost Girls) has been tapped for a key recurring role in the upcoming fifth season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Details of the mystery character are not known, so stay tuned, but we hear it is a major multi-episode arc.

He'll probably be a character made exclusively for the show, which is something Marvel TV is great at.

And will start immediately following Inhumans, which is awesome.

I literally can't think of many examples of Marvel doing this outside of the main characters on AoS. So I'd say that is way off base.

Deathlok should. Mockingbird will depend on how well The Orville does.

I'm hoping that this season hues very close to Infinity War. The team's time in space has something to do with the threat of Thanos, if somewhat tangentially, and that as the season goes on and they find their way back to Earth, they are dealing with a portion of that threat. When they finally make it back, they are met by Fury along with Deathlok, who ends up assisting with their portion of the battle.
