I think JarodRussell is laboring under the notion that there is only one degree of "dead". There's dead as in the heart has stopped and ain't about to start again without intervention and then there's brain death...and I think brain stem death too. Legal and medical definitions have shifted over the years as medical science pushed back the point of no return.
Exactly. If you can be revived, you never were actually dead.
So by that logic, if medical science advances to the point that it can successfully reanimate a corpse days, weeks, months or even years later then they were never *really* dead? Yeah, didn't think so.

Indeed. Actually, isn't the literal meaning of the word "revive" something along the lines of "restore to life" or "to live again"? You can't restore something that ain't gone, no?

I'm starting to get flashbacks to "Young Frankenstein", "The Princess Bride", and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". All at the same time. Interesting montage.

Hell, 24 had Tony Almeida die in Season 5 and have his 'death' explained away in Season 7. If I can take that in a 'real world' drama, I can cope with it in a continuity that features helicarriers, Tony Stark's technology and gamma rays turning you into a green monster.

Awesome. I don't think they could've made a better choice.

Hopefully they make better use of him than Walking Dead has.

The above spoiler with a pic. Also, at the link-- details on Coulson's survival.

J. August Richards is playing... someone I've never heard of. Apparently, he is a very obscure character from the comics, who gains his powers by way of...



First review.

"Whedon has found the perfect balance of Marvel and his trademark witty dialogue with S.H.I.E.L.D. The world is very Marvel, with callbacks and references littered throughout the episode, but the dialogue and ensemble delivers everything you love about Whedon.

CBR's slight-spoiler coverage.

Newsarama's more spoilery coverage.

^Where does it say she's recurring? That link only says she's in the pilot.
