Well, at least we got a new South Park which was pretty good.

Yep, I think you're right, Christopher. Generally Halloween week is somewhat different in terms of scheduling.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Comics Hydra are Neo Nazis (Yes I know, Hydra is also a 200,000 year old religion, shut up.)

Movie Hydra were Nazis.

Pretty hard to recruit when Adolf Hitler signed your charter.

It's really hard to recognize this, but neoNazi's are more forgiveable than actual Nazis.

Maybe not actually forgiveable, but certainly MORE forgiveable.

Sure actual Nazi's from the the War could have just be caught on the wrong side of history forced to wear a uniform without being a believer or even knowing what it was that they didn't believe in... But then you find a true believer that was in on all the muck, and complicit? That's your gold standard of absolute bastards.

Meanwhile Neo Nazi's, like most Christians these days, cherry picking a sanitized "proportionately" favourable interpretation of the original doctrine to fit their environment and goals. They're just really dangerous weirdos who like shiny boots.

Has anyone seen this article yet?

An episode that will tie into Thor 2 as well as being directed by "Number One" himself, Jonathan Frakes!

Yeah, sounds good. Be interesting to see how the work Thor 2 in without spoiling it too much. Will work nicely in really forming this larger universe.

The other cute thing about doing an aftermath episode is it forces the viewers of the tv show to see the movie in theater rather than waiting for DVD

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

"Forced" is a strong word. I think "encourages" might even be overstating it. Unless they advertise the fact that it is a tie-in/follow-up episode for the preceding few weeks then even most fans will have no idea.

Yeah, I know. It certainly motivates me to watch it more promptly than I planned (I was probably going to see it in theaters no matter what, but now I'll see it sooner).

Very cool. I hadn't about it until now, but I think it's a cool idea. With it's heavy SHEILD focus, it'll be interesting to see exactly what they do around the release of The Winter Soldier.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

And there you have it what everyone expected.. Shield is also a marketing tool for the main movies. Who is shocked and surprised?

It feels a bit redundant as people who watch Shield are highly likely to see the movies too but it's got a nice sideeffect too namely that Shield is a bit more cancellation proof than most other shows because it's also designed as a marketing tool.

I don't have a problem with it as long as these episodes don't feel forced and have a good story instead of just going "Hey.. see the new movie!"
