The six-part digital series, produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios, features the character of Elena "Yo-Yo" Rodriguez (Natalia Cordova-Buckley), an Inhuman with the ability to move with super-speed, as she struggles to balance the restrictions of the recently instituted Sokovia Accords, the worldwide agreement that regulates and tracks those with super powers, with a personal mission she's desperate to fulfill. The mission will test her abilities, her allegiances, and will feature some tense encounters with the most popular S.H.I.E.L.D. team members including series stars Clark Gregg (Agent Phil Coulson), Chloe Bennet (Agent Daisy Johnson), Ming-Na Wen (Agent Melinda May), Iain De Caestecker (Agent Leo Fitz), Elizabeth Henstridge (Agent Jemma Simmons), Henry Simmons (Agent Alphonso "Mack" Mackenzie), and Jason O'Mara (Jeffrey Mace).

"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Slingshot" is executive produced by Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, Jeffrey Bell, Jeph Loeb and Geoffrey Colo.

I like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but this just felt whatever. They are so short, why not just join them together for a 10 minute mini episode?

I just watched all 6 episodes on Hulu in 1 sitting.

It was so silly to break it apart into 6 short episodes.

If they wanted to make a bonus web episode to focus on Elena, they should have just combined it and made it into a 15-20 minute episode.

These episodes take place prior to season 4, so I don't quite get the point of showing this missing backstory. It doesn't really add anything and is confusing for those who choose to watch it.

I have a feeling these webisodes are mostly to test fan reaction to the character. It's pretty evident SHIELD producers are wondering whether or not to add this character full time.
