Hopefully some of the overall excitement about the recently revealed “Avengers: Infinity War” trailer has subsided and you can now focus on the Season Five premiere of Marvel’s “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.” which will air tonight on ABC with a two-hour debut. As you might recall from the fourth season cliffhanger, the team appears to be in outer space so check out the poster and some casting/premise below. Be sure to set your DVR if you are unable to sit down and watch it with the rest of us.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have greatly enjoyed the last few seasons of “AOS” and felt that the show was delivering the goods time and time again. Season four was a thrill ride and its great to find all the MCU inferences going on. The show became so much better than how it started and if you are not up to speed get on Netflix or bribe a friend with an account to let you come over and watch. One has to hope that with S5 that we will get some “Avengers: Infinity War” discourse or hints at “Black Panther”. Will you be watching my friends? Let me know down in the comments section below.
