    SHIELD just barely keeping its head above water this final season. I love how the opening credits change nearly every week to reflect the time period in which each episode is set.

      I really hope they stick the landing with the finale. If it’s satisfying enough, this will easily go down as the best season in my opinion.


      • 69 Road Runner

        I think the fifth season may rank as its best. But this final season has been plenty good so far.
