Review: No spoilers here, but 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' premiere is really good

Marvel and ABC have gone out of their way to keep the wraps on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D,
" and I'm not going to spoil any of the surprises.
I'm not going to give anything away at all about the pilot episode (Tuesday, 7 p.m., Ch. 4) ... except to tell you that I really liked it. And I had pretty high expectations for this show that picks up its narrative in a world that just went through the events in the blockbuster movie "The Avengers."
"S.H.I.E.L.D." is not perfect. There are characters that need development. But this is a TV series, not a movie, so there's time.
And I was highly entertained when I saw the "S.H.I.E.L.D." pilot last month. I laughed out loud several times - sometimes because the show was funny, and sometimes just because I was delighted by what I was seeing.
Don't expect "The Avengers," because "Agents of "S.H.I.E.L.D." is not that movie. But it's a very promising start to a series set in the Marvel universe.
I can't wait to see Episode 2.
