A Couple Of Cracking SHIELD Clips, First Word Of Episode 2’s Plot And Characters

Channel 4, the UK broadcaster for Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD have posted a couple of clips from the pilot to their YouTube page. As of midnight tonight I’ll be legitimately able to tell you it’s brilliant without breaking embargo. Consider that a future echo.

Incidentally, the network today also confirmed my previous story about the first episode of SHIELD being followed by The IT Crowd‘s grand finale.

Meanwhile, ABC, the US broadcaster for the show, have issued a short blurb for the second episode.

1.02 “0-8-4″ – Agent Coulson encounters Comandante Camilla Reyes when he and the agents head to Peru to investigate an object of mysterious order, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1 (8/7c) on the ABC Television Network.

In case it got lost in the jargon, 0-8-4 is the title of the episode. No idea what that means. The reference to Peru is particularly interesting, mind.

Agents of SHIELD kicks off on the 24th in the US and 27th in the UK. Don’t miss it.
