There's so much about the premise of this SHIELD show that plays like jumping into the middle of a narrative in progress. Why make an issue out of one little detail that isn't adequately explained?
I'm not the one making an issue of it! It was one point I made in a significantly longer review, but for some reason, some other posters here have been dwelling on it relentlessly all day to the exclusion of my other points. I've just been responding to that, clarifying what I meant in the first place.
And yes, dammit, for the record, I do
think a lot about this show felt too much like jumping into a narrative in progress, and I'm pretty sure I've already said so. It's just that nobody else seems to notice anything I'm saying except the passing Extremis mention.
