Dubsmash Wars: Team S.H.I.E.L.D. enlists the help of Supergirl Melissa Benoist.

For round 2 of the Dubsmash Wars for Charity, Team S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Clark Gregg and Chloe Bennet appear with Melissa Benoist, the star of CBS’ Supergirl.The season 3 premiere of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is almost here and the new direction for the Marvel Cinematic Universe ’s band of secret agents will bring Phil Coulson and the other SHIELD agents on a recruitment mission. Also in attendance from the Marvel and DC camps are Deadpool and Batman, respectively, in cosplay. (No, that is not Ryan Reynolds behind that red mask.) Their collaborative lip-sync to “Why Can’t We Be Friends” is a timely arrival to the Marvel vs.

The terrigen mist that transformed Skye — now going by Daisy — has spread across the world and with the existence of the Inhumans being outed, it is up to SHIELD to wrangle up the new Inhumans and bring them in. The network released the first four minutes and 43 seconds of Tuesday’s episode, titled “Laws of Nature.” It looks like the superhero drama will be off to a big start with plenty of explosions and chases within the first few minutes. And S.H.I.E.L.D. stands right at the center of it, the singular dot that connects the Avengers, Agent Carter, the Howling Commandos, the Inhumans, and a whole lot of extremely weird alien stuff. On the books, S.H.I.E.L.D. means the “Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.” But in the words of Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. This time skip will take up a few months that will have the SHIELD agents moving on from Simmons…except for Fitz, of course. “It’s Fitz’s mission to get Simmons back.

Founded by Peggy Carter and Friends in the aftermath World War II and the apparent defeat of Hydra, S.H.I.E.L.D. was intended to be humanity’s last defense. Under the watchful eye of Director Fury, S.H.I.E.L.D. defuses threats in the present day with an army of agents, an arsenal of really cool(/deadly) toys, and a little something called the Avengers Initiative. She disappeared into this rock that goes to liquid sometimes, but we don’t know why and we don’t know when,” Elizabeth Henstridge said. “I think that the whole team has tried and nothing has worked, so at some point you have to go, ‘She’s gone, we have to move on.’ But Fitz refuses to do that. TV show, though, we follow the goings-on in the outfit via Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg): friend of the Avengers, exemplary S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, and actual dead man.

While it’s tempting (and somewhat cathartic) to shake your fist at Seven and Foxtel, depending on the nature of the deal the blame may really lie with the show’s producers – ABC Studios, Marvel Television and Joss Whedon’s Mutant Enemy Productions. Wherever the blame lies, burning your loyal viewers doesn’t seem like a smart long-term strategy at a time when traditional television is struggling to stave off disruptive new players like Netflix. The arrival of Netflix in Australia saw some Netflix Originals taken back from Foxtel, where you’d now expect them to stay, but it seems all bets are off as TV studios scramble for viewers.

Agents Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) and Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) make up the original team, but are soon joined by Skye (Chloe Bennet), a hacker-turned-S.H.I.E.L.D. asset and consultant.

The streaming service has crunched the numbers and has come up with a nifty equation that pinpoints the moment audiences commit to watching a show all the way to the end. Netflix analysed data from January to July of this year in countries including Brazil, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, the UK and the US. Like most recreational drugs, different shows have different effects on viewers, and the data on the addiction equation therefore is a little all over the place.

According to the streaming company, Australians — we of discerning tastes — apparently remain eminently more resistant to the binge than our American brothers and sisters. It’s also got some of the niftiest gadgets on TV, enjoys an origin story that spans decades, and has some seriously stellar guest stars and tie-ins.

Time Requirements: About a month if you watch 1-2 episodes per night, unless you’re going to do it right and watch the corresponding Marvel films in the correct order. In that case, you’ll be carving out time for The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: Winter Soldier, and Avengers: Age of Ultron. That said, all human beings with real live functioning hearts will probably also develop a deep fondness for Fitz and Simmons (FitzSimmons), both of whom are aggressively adorable and experience some great development over the course of the first and second season.

Surprisingly, the threshold for Netflix addiction was lowest in Australia for legal drama Suits and thriller The Killing, which took just three episodes to hook viewers into completing the entire series. Because it couldn’t exactly spoil the big reveal from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it essentially had to sit tight and tread water before it could make many big reveals of its own.

Contrary to popular opinion, pilots are not what get viewers hooked, at least not according to Netflix’ numbers. “Given the precious nature of primetime slots on traditional TV, a series pilot is arguably the most important point in the life of the show,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer for Netflix. “However, in our research of more than 20 shows across 16 markets, we found that no one was ever hooked on the pilot. This gives us confidence that giving our members all episodes at once is more aligned with how fans are made.” The data compiled by Netflix has the potential to create new metrics for TV viewing. Instead of counting the number of eyeballs on a particular show at a particular time, this data allows Netflix and other streaming services to measure a level of engagement and commitment not given priority in traditional entertainment measurements.

Season 1: Episode 13, “T.R.A.C.K.S.” The team boards a train in Italy and attempts to follow the money trail of baddie/bonafide 1 Percent-er Ian Quinn (David Conrad). In uncovering the origins of his second chance, though, Coulson finds out a bit more than he ever wanted to know about the blue blood running through his veins. Season 2: Episode 5, “A Hen in the Wolf House” Simmons is undercover in a Hydra facility, but when her cover is blown, she’s finds herself cornered without an escape strategy. Agent Bobbi Morse/Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki) has also been undercover, but sheds her dastardly persona and gets herself and Simmons back to the new S.H.I.E.L.D. Upon rescuing Skye from the clutches of Hydra, Coulson is dealt a crushing blow or 12 that renders him unable to keep her from venturing into an unstable underground city.

When recurring foe Raina (Ruth Negga) uses the city’s mysterious power source to open the powerful and dangerous Diviner, they both emerge changed and the team is dramatically altered. A meeting of the minds goes south and results in some very dead S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and a declaration of war from the Inhumans’ leader, Jaiying (Dichen Lachman).

Bobbi is at the mercy of a deranged Grant Ward, the Afterlife Army attacks, and Skye’s forced to choose between blood and the only real family she’s ever known: S.H.I.E.L.D. It has the luxury of time, which allows it to indulge in twisting plot lines and lengthy arcs, delve deeper into character development, and give its audience bigger, juicier payoffs. Skye follows the destiny-crazed Raina into an ancient underground Kree city in an attempt to stop her from using the Diviner—an object with great and unknowable power. Catch up on Agent Carter in preparation for its second season, and keep an eye out for updates on ABC’s recently announced project called Marvel’s Most Wanted featuring S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Lance Hunter and Bobbi Morse (Mockingbird).
