I just watched the season premier and am still on the fence about it. I think this is because when last season (6) came out it seemed to ignore the whole Infinity War/Endgame story (no snap, no "5 years later") so it seemed that the show was now taking it's own course and indicating that it takes place in a different MCU than what the movie takes place in. Hard to tell.

I stopped worrying about how AGENTS OF SHIELD fit in with the MCU two seasons ago. Show is more enjoyable that way. 

I mean, the most significant MCU tie-in happened in Season One, and even then, the timeline for those events was all wonky.

Really dug the S7 premiere - weird to note that the show is sort of the MCU version of "Legends of Tomorrow" this season.

Michael R. - re: tie-ins. That Nick Fury appearance was huge. I think that the Sif appearances would be pretty big, and the episode(s) leading up to Age of Ultron were considerable. I mean, Agent saying, "That confirms it. Time to call in the Avengers" works as a dandy prequel to the movie for me.

This show can be fun. I try to think of it as part of the Marvel multiverse (not the MCU). I found the production value of the the S7 premiere to be pretty good. As stupid as it may sound, I enjoy seeing Stan and Jack's credit at the beginning every time.

I hadn't thought about the time travel element making it similar to Legends of Tomorrow. I will say, I found Legends to be pretty much unwatchable this season (except the Crisis ep.).

The other major tie-in they had was the aftermath of Captain America: Winter Soldier.

Guys....

AOS is part of the MCU.  It just isnít as deeply tied in as we (some) may like so that its blatantly obvious and undeniable....for various reasons.

I blame Joss Whedon for any confusion.  This show could have starred anyone BUT Agent Coulson.  But it didnít.  So making a very key character from the movies The star of the show means that this show (like it or not) is PART OF THE MCU.  To pretend otherwise seems silly.

And kudos to the writers for coming up with a really cool reason for him to be ďaliveĒ (Tahitiís is a magical place).  But the movies made it clear Coulson was a very critical element of the MCU right up until his death.  After all, Coulsonís murder was the event that galvanized the team and got them to focus on working together to defeat Loki.  Thats a pretty big deal.

The 70's credits sequence from this week's episode was, in a word, boss.

LOVE the different intros for the different decades they are in.  Presuming they leap another 20 years that will take them to the 90's.  Too bad...would love to see an 80's theme techno synth credit opening!

Mack and Deke are still stuck in 1982, so youíll probably get your 80s theme intro.
