5 Reasons We Love Watching: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel is basically the smartest studio in Hollywood. They've designed their empire so that all of their properties interlock. If you want to not just watch, but really understand movies like The Avengers, and Guardians of the Galaxy, you've got to invest your time in Captain America and ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. So, OK, yeah, there's a little bit of manipulation going on here. That being said, a little manipulation doesn't mean AoS isn't a great show in and of itself! To prove it, we've put together five super reasons (see what we did there?) to catch Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Tuesdays at 9:00 on ABC.

Marvel isn't trying to manipulate anyone, their comics were all 'interlocked' yearsssss ago. Currently the best movies being made are those bringing the Marvel characters alive. Stan Lee and artists like Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby laid the foundation a long long time ago for what has become successful movies and TV you enjoy today.
