Well, it's not just a straight translation of the movies.
The movies sold themselves on having substantially MORE continuity between films than is traditional; universe-building in a way that raised the stakes.
Agents of SHIELD feels like a sort of throwback; I can't remember the last time I watched a drama/action show with this little connection between basically episodic adventures. Which isn't intrinsically *bad* but it feels very dated to me.
I assume that it will eventually have a Whedon-standard structure with a season-long arc and big-bad (possibly big-bad and little-bad), but they haven't really manifested themselves yet.
