It's Whedon, so it'll just change on a whim. He's done it before with the Firefly intro.
Which intro, the main title sequence (which never changed), or the prologue piece explaining the backstory (that was by the network, not Whedon)?

I just want to see everyone in a Shield jumpsuit in one episode not just the pilot.

After the show came back in 2005, the UN decide that it wanted to distance itself from a dinky little children's drama that portrayed them as a bunch of trigger happy cowboys mowing down aliens with abandon.

UN.I.T. "United Intelligence Taskforce"
Although they still mentioned Geneva, so they hinted at being a UN organization even with the name change.

My wife has officially informed me that if I wish to continue watching this show, I may proceed to do so alone.

I think it's more along the lines of NATO given it's precursor was formed by the Allied Forces in WWII. On the other hand, Coulson said something along the lines of "an 084 supersedes all national claims." That would imply that SHIELD have a lot of international clout as even oppressive Central/South American countries have agreed to co-operate with them.

Can I recommend a good divorce lawyer, or perhaps an on-line dating site?

Sad? She gave you permission to watch the show without her. You should be happy. At least she didn't say no more show.

On the other hand, my wife is still interested in the show. I brought the laptop into the hospital so we could watch it together while she recovered from gallbladder surgery.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Didn't he get rapey in the comics at one point?

He forced the women on the Avengers to dress up skeevy and shotguned a polygamous wedding out of a small group of Avengerettes... It might have just been one panel where he's having a fantasy about total victory and ruling the world.

(No not the Brides of Set. That was something else.)

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Are you guys going to make comments in this thread through the entire episode? Ugh.

Hopefully it won't be 6 pages of useless "Did you see that?" type comments.
