Discuss Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

When this series first began, they were very deliberate to connect the events from the films with the TV universe. Just 2 months into this series, the team had to help clean up the aftermath of Thor: The Dark World, and then the reveal in The Winter Soldier that HYDRA had infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. was foreshadowed by the series, and the team is still dealing with some of the remnants of HYDRA. However, Age of Ultron seems to be the last real attempt to tie the two entities together. From what I remember, the titular agents of SHIELD helped obtain intel about where Von Strucker had Loki's scepter and then helped provide helicarriers for the Sokovia evacuation. I believe that they have mentioned the Sokovia Accords and Captain America going into hiding briefly in passing since Civil War.

This season seems like the TV division of Marvel Studios has been completely isolated from the movie division. The storyline with the world breaking apart and having to travel through time to fix it while a pending alien war is coming to Earth doesn't feel like it can be taking place in the same universe as the MCU right now. There is an alien threat in the movies with Thanos, but after seeing Infinity War last night, it has nothing to do with anything that is going on in AoS. Also, this series has established a theory that the future in unchangeable, at least until the most recent episode. With the introduction of the time stone in Doctor Strange, that is no longer the case in the larger MCU.

Actually, the fight against Thanos directly influenced the last season, and was the prime motivation behind the actions of Gravitron at the end of the season.

I just finished off the season. The fight against Thanos didn't directly influence anything. Instead, Talbot was manipulated by what Father Cassius told him about Thanos. By the end of the finale, the team still had not experienced any of the fallout from Infinity War.

I think it all depends on the time frame. I think Infinity War may have taken a couple days or a week and may have not caught up to AOS as of yet, a couple of episodes ago they just heard about Thanos ship landing in New York.

Not true. Talbot was trying to gain power to join up with the Avengers to help fight Thanos. Drew007 is right in that they never made it to the end of Infinity War during the season, probably because they didn't want to do what they did during Winter Soldier and spoil the end of the movie while it was still out (it wasn't foreshadowed, it was outright spoiled within only 4 days of the movie's release. AOS had already received a lot of criticism for that and probably a stern talking to from Marvel http://www.theouthousers.com/index.php/news/126971-marvel-loses-more-viewers-as-agents-of-shield-spoils-captain-america-2.html ).
