I was underwhelmed by the pilot.
I love the idea of SHIELD tv show, and was looking forward to it. Right now, as I think over the episode, I am taking away references to SHIELD and Marvel heroes, and what is left is just a generic show about "powers" that really has less to it so far than Alphas or Mutant X or any other show I can think of.
Granted, this is just the pilot, so there is room to go somewhere, but what it is so far is just another hero show, only the super powered characters are going to be the freak of the week.
If it wasn't set in the Marvel universe with Colson and Hill, there would be nothing here that I haven't seen before.
As a plus, it has Whedon's signature witty dialogue being spoken by the characters, but that can't carry the show by itself.
