There was a point during season one of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. where some people thought it was going to be canceled. Ratings were down, the show was struggling to find its voice, and the end seemed close. Then the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier ignited things a bit. That lead into a second season which fans have generally enjoyed. It’s even begun to kick off storylines teasing the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ratings haven’t jumped or anything, but the positive vibes toward the show have continued and now ABC is going to invest more in SHIELD. They’re planning an Agents of SHIELD spin off from the show’s producer Jeffrey Bell and writer Paul Zbyszewski. Read More »

The film that most directly influences May’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In that film, the group known as S.H.I.E.L.D. falls when its revealed that they’ve long been infiltrated by the evil group, Hydra. At the end of that movie, S.H.I.E.L.D is almost totally gone and in the new movie, it’s The Avengers who are protecting the world.
Of course, we know S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t totally gone because there’s a TV show, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, that’s still going on. In the show’s first season, we saw how the events of The Winter Soldier directly influenced and changed the show and in Tuesday’s episode, One Door Closes, we’ll see more of what happened on that day. The show flashs back to “The Day S.H.I.E.L.D Fell” to show what Bobbi (Adrianne Palicki) was doing that day along with Mack (Henry Simmons) and even Agent Robert Gonzales (Edward James Olmos), who kept S.H.I.E.L.D. together after the attacks.
