Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 1 Review “The Well”

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD returned tonight with “The Well” the highly anticipated and publicized companion episode to the feature film Thor: The Dark World. With the movie cleaning up in the worldwide box office over the past few weeks, I was definitely interested to see how this episode would turn out. After all, you couldn’t expect everyone to have seen the movie, so any story tie-ins would have to be as light as possible.

Thankfully, the tie-ins to the film were tenuous at best. We really just had an opening recap/advertisement for the two Thor films, with a helpful little narration by Simmons. All you really had to know was that London got beat up a little bit, and that’s the reason for the team being there at the beginning of the episode. Most of the Agents of SHIELD episodes that we’ve seen can be whittled down to “Mystical doo-dads interact poorly with humans”, and that’s basically what we got tonight. It didn’t really matter that the staff was Asgardian, it was just a convenient way to tie in the episode to the new Marvel film.
