Agents of SHIELD, the beleaguered Marvel cinematic universe television show airing on ABC, finally turned a corner with last night's episode, according to some critics. "I loved it!" said vocal critic Gus Sterlingham, of the borderline illegal content farm website "I've been waiting for months for the show to finally have a substantial link to the larger universe, and we finally got it last night."

While the show stars Clark Gregg's Agent Coulson, its ties to the popular Marvel movies have been sparse at best. The show's official tie-in to Thor: The Dark World featured the cast cleaning up trash for a half a minute before getting drawn into a plot torn straight out of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. But, according to Sterlingham, this episode was different. "It had everything the show's been missing for months," Sterlingham said. "Real comic book characters, direct tie-ins with the movie, Chris Hemsworth's delicious biceps."

The show even debuted new characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "Seeing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch for the first time was fantastic," said Sterlingham. "So much better than the debut of C-list villains Lorelai, Blizzard and Graviton."

Other critics of the show hailed last night's episode for different reasons. "They didn't air an episode last night," said frequent SHIELD basher Jude Terror. "That's what made it so great. In this case, nothing is better than an inane plotline featuring highly trained agents acting like amateur James Bonds."

Despite the improvements, last night's episode of S.H.I.E.L.D. scored the lowest ratings yet for the show. WIth only 3.92 million viewers and a 1.4 share in the 18-49 demographic, top ABC executives are calling the experiment a failure, leaving fans of the new direction worried that the show will return to its old formula of weak characterization and cookie cutter melodrama. Well, it was nice while it lasted.
