Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. First Trailer

May 15, 2013 at 9:57 am | Posted in Marvel, Television | Leave a comment

Call me intrigued.  This trailer has caught my interest quite a bit, and I’ll be giving it a watch.  I’m just a little put off by the young, rebellious, mouthy narrator — because she seems a tad bit the obligatory character — but I’ll keep my options open.

And Coulson’s alive.  Worth the watch just for that.
