I’m really looking forward to this summer’s return of Agent’s of SHIELD. Marvel recently put out the Season Six trailer and I’m pretty excited.
I think it’s really unfortunate that the show had such a rocky start, because it has really turned into a very fun show. I didn’t expect the show to get another season, but I’m very glad it did. This one won’t come out until this summer, and it’s going to be shorter than previous seasons (I think something like 13 episodes), but I actually think that might do the show some good. As much as I’ve enjoyed the previous seasons, I think they sometimes felt like they were treading water from time to time. Though I will miss the way the longer seasons often let them have a couple of sub-story arcs within the bigger season long story arc. Still a shorter more focused season will probably be for the best. I expect this will be the last season of the show, but somewhere in the back of my mind I hope that maybe a shorter season and being on in the summer will give the show a bit more leeway rating’s wise and maybe give the show a shot at continuing after this season.
I may go back before this summer and revisit some favorite episodes and/or seasons to get ready. Unfortunately, the show hasn’t been released on DVD/Blu-Ray in the US for the past several seasons. I’ve managed to buy some imported UK Blu-Rays (that are thankfully region-free so they work on US players) of most of the seasons, though there was a long time where Season 4 and Season 5 weren’t available even outside the US. The show is also currently available to watch on Netflix, and of course you can buy the seasons digitally on iTunes, Amazon, etc.
