Unlike how it’s team members try to roll, the premiere of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ didn’t go unnoticed by the general populace. Which is good because if the numbers continue that means we’re going to be able to watch them help save the Marvel Universe for years to come. The television event that Marvel fans have been clamoring for since it first was announced has now happened. AGENT COULSON LIVES AGAIN! We don’t really know how or why (supposedly he never really died but I’m pretty sure that none of us actually buy that) but we’re supposed to get some answers by the end of the first season.
So how did the initial showing of ABC’s new Tuesday Night hit stack up?
Well it would appear that 11.9 million viewers tuned in to watch Clark Gregg (‘The Avengers’) reprise his role of Agent Coulson back from the dead to put together a covert team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.
If this kind of a turnout continues we’ll be seeing Coulson’s crew taking out the bad guys for quite some time to come. Speaking of tuning back in what did the viewers think about the show? Well a few names you might recognize had some input.
#AgentsofSHIELD was a lot of fun. No spoilers, but… yeah, there’s a bit in there that made me smile, let’s say.
