The Many Stoic Faces Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

After delivering a great episode last week, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has happily returned to its hometown of Dullsville. Here's the story in pictures.

Hey, did you enjoy last week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as much as I did? Well…good news! You probably still have it on your DVR. Because, all hopes and prayers to the contrary, that excellent hour of TV was very much a one-off. With "Yes Men," we were once again treated to MAoS's more traditional bag of boring tricks: narrative water-treading, badly CGI-ed fight scenes, and, of course, the requisite Melinda May speech about how she doesn't care about anyone and she'll do whatever it takes to get the job done. Yes, like a meth addict who buys his girlfriend a diamond ring one day but pukes in her underwear drawer the next, S.H.I.E.L.D. seems bound and determined to disappoint its viewership until we all walk away so it can hit rock bottom and find religion. It's okay, buddy. There's coffee and donuts in the back and you don't have to talk until you're ready.

Rehashing the "plot" of "Yes Men" would only make me angry (and you wouldn't like me when I'm angry) (and this show doesn't have the effects budget for it anyway), so instead, let's take a look at what the stony-faced S.H.I.E.L.D. crew was thinking about this week.
