We’re just a little over a week away from the premiere of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. So what do you need to know before tuning in?

A few things, actually, though the series will likely work just fine as a fun, action-procedural for non-comic fans. But for those who want to know, there's a lot to know.

For one thing, the concept brings quite a bit of history from the Marvel-verse — not to mention a half-dozen movies over the past several years.

Plus there’s the wildcard Joss Whedon factor, and what we can glean from his previous projects. From Buffy, to Firefly, they all give us some hints on what to expect from Marvel’s first foray onto the small screen.

So go ahead and set your DVR for the September 24 premiere on ABC  at 7 p.m. (Central) and check out our primer below.
