Now can someone explain the Life Mode; Decoy that was postulated earlier?
In the Marvel Comics rich people and such have things called "Life Model Decoys" that are essentially robots that fill in for them in dangerous situations/allowing them to be in "two places at once." But they're just machines with no life or "sentience" thought of their own. Tony claims to be one to get out of talking to Coulson in "The Avengers" so it's possible they exist in the MCU.

But, again, they're just robots, not androids that are complete replacements for the person they emulate. This makes me doubt that this Coulson is a surviving LMD unless the MCU is going to treat them differently.

So Trekker, how are we going to do this next week? Continue to use this thread, or should you do a weekly commentary the way we used to with Smallville?
We'll use this thread for all of Season 1, the mods request TV series threads be consolidated. So every Tuesday I'll just start the new episode's discussion with a post with the episode name/description.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
