Warning, spoilers ahead... For the last couple of months the show runners for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have mandated that things will start to turn for the better. They have even gone as far as dubbing this new direction as "Uprising".

And that is simply to bring its DC mythology and its catalog of characters to life. I look forward to each and every Wednesday and this season has been nothing short of a thrill ride.
