Please ABC do not put this on your Thursday at 8 PM death slot!

What slot isn't a death slot these days? They'd be better off immediately putting new episodes on Netflix right after they air.

They should put them online worldwide and get the biggest audience worldwide they possibly can.

You can see six seconds of the preview, the Hulk footage, at IO9.

Not surprised, but still very happy.

So is SHIELD going to be the "Torchwood" to The Avengers' "Dr Who"?

That may be true but the Thursday 8 pm slot for ABC is very bad. The last show to make it past a first season there was Ugly Betty 8 or 9 years ago.

Pretty sad when the most interesting looking character is a middle aged guy in a suit.

I like Coulson and Ming-Na, the three people in the left are weird, I see an Eliza Dushku/Dichen Lachman hybrid, Selma Blair/Jennifer Garner and the agent who wears jeans which means he will be the dorky tech guy. All three of them are a little bit too pretty for my tastes, that's not how I imagine agents of Shield, not that they can't be good looking, but they look like they're fresh out of model school. The guy on the right looks fine, he's also very good looking but at least older than 22.

I really hope they add Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill as soon as HIMYM is over, she doesn't have to be a regular but I want her as a recurring character. I'm not sure I'd want Samuel L. jackson to show up, maybe a cameo in the pilot and season finale but if this is a show about the small guys the big boss should be out of sight most of the time.

Yeah, from a visual standpoint, this team looks pretty damn boring. A bunch of generic, pretty-faced, vanilla tv people. But I remain confident that Whedon and his writing staff can make them interesting anyway.

They do indeed, but then again, I thought the exact same thing when I saw this promo pic http://dvdbash.files.wordpress.com/2...-dvdbash-4.jpg and I ended up loving those characters, so appearances may be deceiving.

Well, that's Clark Gregg's specialty -- making the ordinary guy the most interesting person in the room.

Which "Asian girl?" There's the Macau-born Ming-Na Wen -- who's 49 years old, hardly a "girl" -- and the Chinese-American Chloe Bennet (nee Wang). Ms. Wen's character Melinda May has been described in some sources as knowing martial arts, but she's described elsewhere as an "ace pilot and weapons expert" (and let's face it, knowing martial arts is hardly unprecedented for Whedon heroines). Ms. Bennet's character Skye (the one on the far left, in boots) is the computer hacker. The woman in sneakers is Elizabeth Henstridge, whose character is Jemma Simmons, a "genius biochemist."
