We're assured by the producers writers and cast that we're just getting to the good parts of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (7 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4). The jury remains out on that one, although the most recent original episode — which aired way back on Feb. 14 — was, arguably, the best we've seen from this series.

In tonight's episode, Bill Paxton makes the first of several appearances as Agent John Garrett. Comic book fans will recognize the character; the rest of you will recognize Paxton.
