Before you become an agent, you have to put your time in as an intern, even in the world of high-stakes superheroes. Or so supposes a new scripted YouTube series from Screen Junkies.

Interns of F.I.E.L.D. quite bluntly parodies the Marvel show Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D., demoting its heroes to an even lowlier position. After Staff Sergeant America takes down the bad guy, the interns are left to clean up the mess and deal with the lowest level of drama, until a super villain falls under their care.

This marks Screen Junkies’ first foray into scripted series. The channel is best known for its Honest Trailers series that skewers the movie industry with realistic looks at the film’s promotional efforts. Interns of F.I.E.L.D. boasts a robust cast with Jonathan Lipnicki, Benita Robledo, Casper Van Dien, and Jamie Kennedy. 

The series hit YouTube on Monday with the premiere episode. If you’re invested in the fate of these poor interns, the remainder of the series lives on the Screen Junkies subscription platform, ScreenJunkies Plus.
