Sorry but, to me, this has disaster written all over it.
I think it has success written all over it, as much as any series concept I've seen for 2013-14. There's all sorts of less likely stuff. People trapped living under a dome? A kid who finds out he's the descendent of ancient Greek gods? The adventures of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer in Steampunk New Orleans? S.H.I.E.L.D. is one of the few series concepts I'd be willing to bet money on succeeding. Everything else is either derivative or nutty.

Setting it after The Avengers movie is really the only option. Anything else would confuse the audience. You can't expect them to pay close attention to when it's set, etc. They're viewers, not fans.

Just like the SW prequels confused non-"fans" as to when they were set.

Exactly. I remember walking out of the theater after Episode two, after the wedding of Anakin and Padme, hearing someone say, "Wait, aren' t they supposed to be brother and sister?"

That is really the only logical direction they could go, IMO.
Not necessarily. As I've said before, it's not impossible for someone to survive the kind of impalement injury Coulson received in the film, if they get medical treatment quickly enough. And we never actually saw the medics call his death -- we just heard Fury tell the others that they'd called it, and we know he wasn't above lying to manipulate their emotions.

True, an injury that serious would take months to recover from and would probably leave a person permanently impaired in some ways, but maybe Coulson could have been healed by some kind of bionic grafts or a variant of the supersoldier formula. So there are other possible ways they could go besides revealing that the "dead" Coulson was an LMD.
Actually, all I meant by my post was that having the series set after The Avengers movie was the only logical direction the series could go, in response to Set Harth's vage post which I interpreted as against the idea. I really don't care how they deal with Coulson's revival. Though I do keep wondering if Iron Man 3 is going to have some hint, even if it is just the scene at the end of the credits.

I'm surprised that all the news items lately are referring to Ming-Na Wen by her full name, instead of just Ming-Na, the name she's been using professionally for many years now. Did she decide to change back?

^ If so, it must have been a very recent decision. I'm pretty sure she was credited as "Ming-Na" on yesterday's "Nashville".

Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001840/bio Claims that she dropped the 'Wen' when(!) she got married in 1995 and is now like Ann-Margaret. Howver, her main page (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001840/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1) calls her Ming-Na Wen. And to add to the confusion, when she guested on Two and A Half Men, she was credited as Ming-Wen!

And holy crap, who would have thought she'll be 50 this year?!

I can see why she wouldn't want to use her husbands name, "Zee". At least not professionally. Say it out loud-- Ming-Na Zee sounds a little too close to "Ming Nazi"

Why not? As Clark Gregg will be the lead of the show she can be the sort of boss who appears once in a while because Samuel L. Jackson is not a TV actor and just too expensive.

HIMYM is going to have it's last season apparently next year (until they decide to prolong it again) after that she would be fully free to increase from recurring guest star to full starring role in Shield (going immediately from one show to the next while doing the character in movies is an actor's dream when it comes to employment guarantee).

There have been instances in shows where characters got reduced screen time at their own request (barring health issues and pregnancies) and i guess at the end of the show, especially with the hinted at events in Mother, she could get the occasional week off from it to film scenes for Shield.
