Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

When the Scoutmaster started talking about how "The Crying Man" is coming to get you... Who thought that an Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D./Sliders cross over was impending?

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I did. I heard "Crying Man" and immediately thought of Sliders. I just wasn't sure whether it was an in-universe reference to a fictional show, or a sly way to connect the Sliders universe to the Marvel one (as in, Rembrandt Brown was a real missing person in the MCU and had become an urban legend there).

I'm sure it's a coincidence. "Crying Man" just sounds like the kind of name someone would come up with for the scary guy in a campfire story. It's not that uncommon a phrase.

Oh no, not bloody Torchwood again. They even plaster the organization's name over its black SUV -- but at least no Christmas-tree lights. If Coulson is Captain Jack Harkness, how do the other characters map? May = Ianto? Skye = Gwen?

It's interesting that she came across as a mature, rather plain professional woman as Senator Wen on Eureka, but put her in leathers and an "I'll kill you for breathing wrong" expression, and she's hot as hell.
To me, she'll always be Mulan.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Maybe what they're hiding from Coulson is that Fury stained his precious Captain America trading cards with blood, lest he go berserk

Really enjoyed this episode, glad that Fitzsimmons got the focus but everybody still had a lot to do. The characterization was the real strong point of the episode. More of the same please.

I like the idea of Fitz eventually turning into a villain after feeling ostracized, if a love triangle between Jemma, Ward and Skye happens, as someone else mentioned upthread.

Already been addressed in "Eye-Spy"...

Ward: I know Director Fury felt he owed you after you sacrificed yourself.

Coulson: And my card collection...

Don't get this reference. I was referring to the Human Torch.

^I think he's referring to the lead character of Torchwood being immortal.

Okay, but I wasn't saying Coulson was immortal--I was saying the the LMD angle could very well be an intentional misleading of the audience, when the real secret about Coulson is something entirely different.

He's really skrull that's had his memory wiped and replaced with Coulson's.

It makes a certain amount of sense though, they have two research/tech characters, no problems arise by killing one of them.

Well, it would be quite odd for Fitz to start doing biological stuff, though. Or Simmons technical stuff. The characters (while they have nuances I wasn't expecting when we first met them) work as a pair. Killing off one ruins that whole point.
