The Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Stargate Pioneer, Agent Lauren and Agent Haley celebrate the 200th Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode by discussing the very first episode of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. “Pilot.” From remembering the theories of Coulson’s Avenger’s death to the many clearance levels of S.H.I.E.L.D. to seeing the Science Babies for the first time this episode takes the Agents fondly down memory lane. The Agents also promote the Podcast Pack Hurricane Harvey Fundraiser, run down some Marvel news from the week, and thank you very much for your feedback.
