Every so often you just get tired of some trailer trying to blow air up your skirt. Wouldn’t it be nice if, once in a while, a trailer actually told the truth about the show or TV show they wanted you to watch? Screen Junkies thinks so too. Their latest effort to clear the air is aimed at Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

In this one, Screen Junkies skewers everything that’s wrong with the overhyped expectations we have of this comic book based action series. To be fair, it’s just entertainment, not fact checking a political statement, so inflating the experience a bit doesn’t have the same consequences. We can also watch this and recognize that we know all these things, and we’re just working hard to give Marvel a pass on this stuff so that we can actually enjoy the show. It would be nicer if we didn’t have to work quite so hard at it, but it’s still working on enough levels that we keep coming back.

Watch the trailer, and snicker along with us. It’s all so true.
