Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Btw, according to CC, it’s “Jemma,” not “Gemma.”

Really liking this show and all the discussion!

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I'd love to keep dropping in to discuss the show but this thread moves way too fast for me. We're only 5 episodes in and we're almost at 1500 posts already!

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Wondering how SHIELD relates to projects like Kepler. PEGASUS was depicted as a co-op between SHIELD and NASA, right?

My suggestion is to skip ahead to the end of the posts shortly before an episode begins. There's usually a lull in the day or two before an episode as the previous discussion winds down. Then it picks up again discussing what happened and any thoughts on wider implications.

There's actually very little, if any, running commentary in an episode itself. So the bulk of the posts are initial thoughts and then running discussions on one or two things. My guess is, if you follow those initial posts (i.e., come here Tuesday after the episode) you'll see whether there's any other discussion worth following.

Maybe we should have done weekly threads with polls after all.

Frowned upon by board staff, otherwise I would have.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Well, we also have a continuing discussion that would be lost. Why not just accept one long thread. I don't see how more threads changes the pace of the discussion, it just makes older threads harder to find (and it'll have Marvel fill up even more of this forum). If you want to periodically start over rather than having to follow a continuing conversation (as starting a new thread would do), just click on the last page and start reading from there.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

^That's what I do most of the time. If I fall behind on a thread, and don't feel like reading a whole bunch of pages, then I'll just skip ahead to the last page and follow the discussion from there.

I tend to skim through what I missed. I hate being the person who asks a question that was answered three pages ago.

There's a thought. With so much Marvel programming now, and more on the way, would it make sense to create a Marvel subforum?

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Well, I've suggested a comicbook forum that includes comics, live action, cartoons, etc. It didn't make sense to me to narrow it to just Marvel.

No thank you.

If we let you ship us off to some dank box on the periphery, I'm not sure you'll ever let us out.

A comics subform has been suggested and suggest ad infinitum and it's continually rejected. We do have a sister forum for the CSI series, though!

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I am bizarrely proud of myself that, having dvr'd the first 5 episodes, I watched them and read ALL of the posts in this thread.

What a pointless accomplishment! Ah, the joys of not working!
