Is Agents of Shield worth watching?

SO I now have access to watch this and I've seen a few opinions here and there that don't make it sound so good. Is it worth watching is my question, is it worth putting time into?

I really enjoyed SHIELD, thought each season got better and better.

I've enjoyed it so far (I'm part way through S6). In fact, I bought Agent Carter on the strength of it.

Yes, it its (IMHO, of course)

As NokLyf said it got better and better until S4 which is awesome.

Even Joss left around S1 (and during S1 he did only a light script supervision) AoS, for some reason* feels more Jossian than Dollhouse.

*reason: I guess Jed, Mo and Jeff (all of them promoted to showrunners under Joss command) played the "Joss" formula even though they did it in their own terms and style.

Definitely worth trying, for me, it is up there with Buffy in terms of quality

Eh, I saw the pilot. Based on what I know of the series, the primary hook was that it was going to fill in the plot gaps between Marvel movies, which was abandoned. It was going to introduce and promote things like Inhumans that were going to advance the films, which it didn't. It was always going to be a longshot to get film level SFX and anyone big from the movies. Heck, Shield was disbanded halfway through the first season, so If anything, the series was mostly hurt by the films and rarely helped. So, the whole series? No, but select episodes seems reasonable. Like the treatment we should all give the first season of Star Trek series.

I watched the first season. I was really bored with it and forced myself to finish the first season. I didn't have enough interest to watch any further, although I hear other people say it got better after the first season.
