Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 Ep. #1 9/29/15 – review

Laws of Nature

The season begin several months after the events of last season.  Skye/Daisy is running a team that is trying to locate and bring in newly activated Inhumans and Fitz is desperately trying to figure out the monolith and get Simmons back.

There is another organization run by a woman named Rosalind that is also hunting Inhumans.  Coulson tracks her down and they find that there is a third party out there that is attacking and killing Inhumans.

Daisy, Mack and Lincoln are attacked by a large creature with powers and barely escape.

This episode spends a lot of time reminding the audience what Inhumans are, I guess to bring in new viewers who may not have seen the previous season.

It was great to see Lash being brought in from the comics.  It’s doubtful that many, if any, if the major comic book Inhuman characters will be brought in to the show.  Theres is an Inhumans movie planned for 2019, so most of the big stars of the comics such as Black Bolt, Medusa and Crystal, I’m sure,  will be saved for that.

Fitz finally got to do a bit more than stand in the corner looking nervous while being a genius.  He’s stepping up for Simmons who, unknown to him is lost on an alien planet.

It will be interesting to see how the relationship develops between Coulson and Rosalind.  They both seem to be working against each other for the same goal.  Hopefully next week we will see something of May and Ward now that Hunter is going on a revenge mission.

With just 42 days to go until the 3rd season premiere there continues to be buzz online about what to expect this season.  Apparently some time will have passed and Simmons will still be stuck inside the Kree monolith.  Simmons is returning this season but just how the time in the monolith will affect her character remains to be seen.   The season is said to be based around the Marvel Secret Warriors comics, Daisy and Mack will be working together to lead the Secret Warriors team that in the comics was put together by Nick Fury.  Samuel L. Jackson is rumored to be back for a cameo this season.

Not much else to report for other shows new or returning.  We should see Jessica Jones turn up on Netflix sometime in the last 3 months of 2015 and Agent Carter season 2 will probably be aired starting in January 2016.

Last season left us with a one-armed Coulson, a vengeful Ward and contaminated fish oil.  After the amazing conclusion to last season, I’m counting the days until the season three premiere.  I hear that the Secret Warriors comic series will be influencing things so I am busy reading every issue on the Marvel Unlimited app.

Last season this was much better than anticipate.  I’m so glad it got a second chance.

This season Peggy Carter is going to be battling comic book villain Madame Masque.

Netflix Series

Jessica Jones

Still no release date for the next Marvel Netflix series but it should be before the end of this year.   It’s going to be based on the Alias comic book series and if season 1 of Daredevil it going to be typical of the Marvel Netflix series then this too should be great.

Photos are popping up online from the set of season 2, Punisher is set to appear as well as Elektra.  Rumor is that Bullseye may be involved too.

It’s likely that the second season won’t appear on Netflix until 2016.  Both Luke Cage and Iron Fist are also set to be made into Netflix series and will follow the Jessica Jones series.  Hopefully we’ll see lots of crossover appearances before they are all eventually brought together for the Defenders mini series.
