Agents of Shield

So this show aired. Anyone have any thoughts on it?

Just watched the pilot. It was actually pretty cool. Felt like a TV show from the 90s with a much bigger budget. Like something you would have watched on BBC 2 after The Simpsons was done. Didn't blow me away but it was plenty enjoyable and it seems like a strong start.

EDIT: Just realised the title should say "Agents of SHIELD" but shut up.

Thought it was lame. Hope it fails because I'm sick of Marvel fanboys.

Disappointed that certain characters we saw in the trailers didn't turn out to be who we thought they were. I hope the show is eventually used to bring more heroes from the Marvel universe. There's really not much need to create new ones, though I suppose the story told in this first episode did need a new character. Actors are less than great but not bad. Some effects are questionable, but they always will be questionable in a tv series, and it was just a pilot so it should improve. Writing is very Whedon and (mostly) very good with the only exception being that I think some of the references and tie-ins were unnecessary. Those kinds of things are always done in a way that I either completely love or completely hate it. Basically, I hate it when characters basically straight out say "hey guys, this show/movie is connected to the other shows/movies!", in a context where it doesn't add to the story, such as the mentionings of Thor in both this show and in Iron Man 3. I do however love when these references happen when it actually matters, such as Iron Man 3 with "The Battle of New York," or this show with the the super soldier serum, the gamma, and the particular thing I won't spoil that verified this episode taking place during Iron Man 3.

I'm rambling, but I think it was good, not excellent, but that it will improve after the pilot.

Pilot was aight. Second episode was dogshit. Third was a vast improvement and I'm looking forward to seeing more of the villain.

But damn, the British scientists are the most dull, type casted and annoying characters.

Seems to me it's just more proof that movie and TV producers can't let a dead hero stay dead.

Considering this is the same guy who gave us Firefly and Serenity, I'm a little disappointed in the lackluster manner in which the show's unfolded so far.

That being said, it's mildly entertaining when I'm bored as shit on a Tuesday night

It was pretty bad. The female lead looks like a girl I went on a couple dates with a few months ago.

I found it thoroughly entertaining. It's good comic-book cheese.

He probably wants it to not get cancelled.. Firefly is ****ing incredible, but most people have poor taste. And unfortunately, most people want pop tv shows with no real substance.
