Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Swan Song

A week ago today, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. aired it’s final episode after 7 seasons. I didn’t get to watch it until the next day. I wanted to watch the 2-hour final live, but I couldn’t get a signal on my antennae.

I remember being excited when AoS was first announced and I excitedly watched the pilot and first season. I’m sure a lot of people gave up on it after that, but it got so much better after that season. Although sometimes I wish they had more tie-ins to the movies, I admit that it was probably a better show when they ignored the movies.

After the first few seasons, I was usually way behind on the show, but AoS was still one of my favorite shows while it was on. I got behind twice during the final season, but got caught up in time for the finale. I realized while watching the finale that it made me emotional more often than any other show I’ve watched in recent years. I like that there were stakes. I was nervous watching because people did die. Yes, it’s a comic book show, so some came back, but not all. There was a core cast that was there from beginning to end, but the cast did have a few changes over the years.

The final season was fun with all the time travel. They got a chance to play around in different parts of the past. It led to some funny moments, but there was also a chance for social commentary. The finale had some great moments. I can’t think of anything I would complain about. I won’t spoil it, but I’m still thinking about that final scene a lot 6 days later. I’m going to miss this show. I hope we get to see more of these characters in the future.
