Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is continuing to expand their cast with the new addition of Adrianne Palicki as Barbara (Bobbi) Morse [aka :Mocking Bird] to their ranks. I’m very excited to see how they will be working with this character in the Cinematic Universe and applaud the introduction of more female stars to the lineup. This is just the latest addition to the show, with Lucy Lawless as Isabelle Hartly, Kyle MacLachlan (the Captain from How I Met Your Mother) as Sky’s father, Reed Diamond as new bad guy Whitehall, Nick Blood as a good bad guy, Henry Simmons as Alphonso Mackenzie and Simon Kassianides as Bakshi. We get to experience all these new characters in addition to perhaps my favorite (new) character introduced late season 1, Patton Oswalt playing Billy Koenig and Sam Koenig. This is truly becoming an incredible lineup for a television show these days.
For those new to the show, Agents of SHIELD is a television show that focuses on SHIELD, which is essentially the spy agency that runs world security. The show primarily focuses on a small team head up by Agent Phil Coulson. The team travels around the world to ‘deal’ with random threats that inevitably pop up. The tie in to the overall Cinematic Universe is very impressive, as you can see the show build up to movies and then watch the repercussions of the newest Marvel movie expand into the television series. With this great new supporting cast to the existing cast that began this series, I think it’s safe to say that we’re in for a treat with Season 2 airing September 23rd.
