Netflixing: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Season 5

in tv •  8 months ago

After four seasons of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we may rightly ask the question, "Where will they go from here?"

Space. The answer is space.

"I'm afraid I've got some bad news, boys."

Hey, it was either that or the nuclear option: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Babies.

But what at first seems like a routine alien abduction comes with a shocking twist so implausible that no one would even notice it was recycled from the original Planet of the Apes.

That's right: the alien planet they land on is actually a post-apocalyptic earth IN THE FUTURE. And no, that's not a spoiler, because they reveal it in the very first episode of the season.

So how does this season fare in comparison to the others, or compared to anything else on Netflix. It's high time we talked about such harrowing subjects.

A Little Retrospective

Season 4 had ghosts, robots, Ghost Riders, robot riders, ghost robots, an evil magic book, and an android who successfully transforms herself into a flesh-and-blood human (albeit with a host of inhuman superpowers).

But perhaps the most important development was the invention of virtual world called the Framework, where the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. got to live alternate lives, most of which involved becoming evil Hydra agents. Even series fan-favorite Leopold Fitz was transformed into a wicked Nazi scientist.

"Mein Fuhrer! I can walk!"

And none of that will have any bearing on the new season (except for the part about evil Fitz. Evil Fitz is here to stay).

But all is not well in the post-apocalyptic future, as Daisy Skye "Quake" Johnson begins to suspect that she is the reason for the Earth's current non-pre-apocalyptic state. And she will have to make a choice about whether to return to the past. And with her latest boyfriend du jour, a futureman named "Deke", muddying the waters, her outlook is grim, to say the least.

What Makes this Season Different?


In season 5, the show finally ties up all the errant storylines and unfulfilled promises that have been hanging around since season 1.

Fitz and Simmons get closure.

Coulson and May get closure.

The evil blob of gravitonium that made its presence known in a post-credits scene from the first season...also gets closure.

The showrunners made sure that every unsolved mystery and every elephant in the room were finally addressed, dispelling much of the soap-opera-ness of the series. The result is a season with real development and a lot of payoffs. For once, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. did not feel like it was stringing us along.

It might be even better than season 1. And it is certainly more rewarding.

And it appears that this is where the showrunners mean to end the series. By taking time to plot out the structure of this season for the maximum possible impact, they have put a fine capstone on their efforts, and the series as a whole should be applauded for how well it comes together in the end.

My Judgment

I won't spoil any of the remaining plot points here. Instead, I shall simply tell you to catch up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. today. The entire series is on Netflix, and if you've stuck with this show for any number of seasons, then you owe it to yourself to make it to the end of season 5.

This was the point at which the series became more than just a passing distraction or pulp fiction. It finally became something great. And it did so without overstaying its welcome or becoming stale. I have to congratulate the showrunners on the wisdom they have shown by giving us a definite end, by not selling out, by not thinning the story by padding it with extra seasons, by not settling for...

    I love to read your judgment i mean this part of the post is so fun for me because i take your ideas and point of view so i learn a lot about each serie you share. Regards

    It's interesting that Agents of SHIELD has become a bridge between the Marvel Earth and the Marvel Cosmos. Even Iron Man and Captain America haven't really interacted with aliens yet.
    well done and perfect work....

    That is valuable and great post. very good Netflixing movies and good tv series .
    Great writing this blog.
    Have a Great day.

    I'm also upto date with this show.
    I didn't think that it would get so good, to think I almost left it at one point

    Really wonderful review my friend and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. There are many interesting characters.

    @talanhorne - Sir I didn't watch this Tv program... But I think Season 6 is a good news for all fan of it... Good article with a good news Sir... Thank you...

    @talanhorne, That's better review of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Season 5 movie under Netflix series. I remember you introduced every episodes in these movie. Perfect work.

    Thanks for not spoiling hahah but definitely enjoyed the review on this one :D

    That is excellent story title included movie @talanhorne. Your introduction so awesome.

    In season 5, the show finally ties up all the errant storylines and unfulfilled promises that have been hanging around since season 1.

    Sound like everything got its closure. It’s hard to belive they waited that long since season 1. I guess it’s worth to watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Season 5.

    There are so many interesting characters. I love to watch these movie after reading your contexts.

    Fortunately I've watch final episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It was very interesting to me. Excellent description about 5th episode.

    Post-apocalyptic earth in the future doesn’t sound like very bright future 😱 . Fortunately it’s just st a Netflix series. I believe they planed it that way, the way they eventually solved every single mystery. One of the better results when it comes to your reviews.

    Great and amazing review on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Season 5. I thoroughly enjoyed your post @talanhorne. I appreciate your work. I love to watch Netflix movies in my spare time instead of sitting idle.

    Thanks for sharing this post. 🤗

    Have a wonderful day!

    I really enjoyed your Netflix review.... and also inspired me .... thank you so much for your Netflix review and again waiting for the next one ...🙂

    A wonderful review, by @talanhorne sir....
    Fans who found S.H.I.E.L.D. growing more exciting and innovative in season 4 have been rewarded with a mind-bending new reality in season 5.
    well done....

    @talanhorne, That's better review of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Season 5 movie under Netflix series. Perfect work sir....
    It was a wonderful tribute to the importance of Agents of SHIELD in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it was also goddamn terrifying and I almost had a heart attack.

    Even though I have been profoundly enjoying this season , around last episode I began to get a little homesick. I enjoyed SHIELD’s timey wimey space adventure, other than that there is not much to watch. Still this one is the one to watch and I can’t wait to see more of it.
