People who never watched the show complain that they just casually brought back Coulson from his death in the film "The Avengers" with no explanation. I take that back, perhaps they saw the first episode. How Coulson was brought back to life is one of the show's subplots early in the season - we are told what happened gradually (just as such a thing would be puzzled out in real life) , and eventually entire episodes are dedicated to just this part of the story. There's nothing casual about it.
Perhaps people didn't like the show because it didn't live up to their expectations. Maybe they figured it would be as good or better than Firefly, since Joss Whedon is involved with the show. Well, that's simply impossible. Firefly is and forever more shall be the best gorram show in all of existence, so, yeah, obviously SHIELD won't top it.
The interconnections between the show and the Marvel Cinematic Universe are one way: the movies affect the show, but the show doesn't affect the movies . (The biggest discrepancy here is obviously that the movies have never acknowledged that Coulson is alive again.)Simple timing could make this complicated, but also they realize many (most, worldwide, probably) movie viewers aren't watching the show, so they wouldn't want to put something in the films that's dependent on knowledge of SHIELD. "Oh, well, if you saw episode 14 of season 2, you'd understand what Black Widow was talking about when she said blah-blah-blah."
Perhaps the true reason people don't like the show is they just don't like the characters, for whatever reason, and there's really no helping that. No argument will persuade someone "well, you _ought_ to like the characters."

The show starting off slow is really to the benefit of people who aren't comic book fans, and fans of the movies. Of course if you loved Coulson in the movies, so much the better. But really the series tries to slowly immerse the viewer in the universe before plunging you in the deep end toward the end of the season. The SHIELD in this show is a bit different from the SHIELD in the comic books too, so going slow at first might help comic book fans as well. In the SHIELD comic books Director Fury (and later Directors of SHIELD) is at the helm of many missions, the Director of SHIELD is mostly not around in this show- so you have to get use to that idea. Later seasons have a Director, but this is about season 1- so stay focused, I'm not talking about later seasons here! :-)
The casting is really good, especially Clark Gregg (who really carries the show the first few episodes). You really start to love the characters these actors portray, and the twists and turns will be gut wrenching after you get immersed in it. This show is a good break and fill in between the movies. But if you don't watch the movies the tv show isn't dependant upon the details from the movies, the same is true for the movies not being dependant upon the details from the tv show. Watching all of them together opens up a lot more into the Marvel Universe however, so I highly recommend watching them together during a marathon of Marvel U movies. Whether you're a fan of the show or not, I don't think anyone can deny that the details in the show really do give more depth to the movies.
This is not a show to watch with small children, there is nothing terrible in it. But small children might not understand, and could be frightened by some of the story. This is great for older children, pre-teens and teenagers. This show really appeals to adults of all ages, I don't know why movie studios aren't paying attention- these movies, and tv shows are bringing in a wide age range of audiences. There is a little bit of something for everyone; action, adventure, high tech gadgets, a little bit of romance and jealousy, and just enough girl power! In the end this is a very uniting show.
