Why not "Marvel Action Real Video Entirely Live"?

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Marvel has posted the first four minutes or so from next week's ep on Facebook.

It acknowledges Thor: The Dark World right up front with scenes from both Thor movies and finds our team cleaning up the mess at Greenwich University.

Coulson-- "You know, it would be nice if, just for once, Thor and his people sent the God of Cleaning Up After Yourself. They probably have a magic broom for this kind of thing".

Are you talking about the hundreds of millions that never signed up, or the 10's of millions that left in the last month?

If they're at work, then they shouldn't be on facebook!

That's just rude.

Accepting money from an evil world raping conglomerate to jerk off online?

RUDE!

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I have enjoyed the past two episodes. Fitz and Simmons are beginning to feel like real characters and not just the nerd twins. Ward and Skye are better characters when separated, but Skye is the weakest link for me. I just can't warm to her.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I've avoided the thread but am now up to date on the show as of last night. These November sweeps episodes have really firmed up where the story threads laid down since the start are going.
Bringing in of Agent Blake and Jasper Sitwell were great. Then as the show is unfolding I had to have my friend rewind his DVR....did they just Hand? Yep, there's that red streak, check, glasses, check holy crap Victoria Hand.
Did not see that coming. Probably cause I've avoided spoilers and it's Saffron Burrows so she might could cross over into the films as well.

The developments with Skye and her boyfriend seem to have her firmly on SHIELDS side now. The whole looking for her parents angle motive and all, yet can't say I wouldn't be surprised if something compromises her. She is after all not even Level 1.

I was really annoyed by Fitz & Simmons in the early goings. Only the last two episodes have me doing an alteration of course on the two. Both got moments to shine solo and as a team unit.

Coulson being firmly aware that something is up with himself. Ordering the tests, catching himself speaking the conditioned response and of course that phone call at the end.

I'm really eager for a focused story on May. Especially hopeful it's loaded with backstory and the nickname she's earned but hates.

Grant is just there for me still at this point. I'm indifferent to need to know anything more about him. Is that a shared sentiment or am I missing something?

I rarely am able to make the time to watch shows as they air anymore but time permitting would like to catch Tuesdays episode as it ties into the fall out of TDW.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

When Coulson flat-out asked her if she actually wanted to be a SHIELD agent, and she took a deep breath and said "yes", I'm get that the writing intended her to mean it, but I didn't buy it. She wants to know about her parents, sure, and wants to know all the secrets, absolutely, and would like to stay on the bus, I can believe that, too. But, especially given what she'd seen of SHIELD in that very ep, her wanting to start as a bottom-level noob, taking orders all the time? Ermmm...

Yep, that's been the best part of the last 2 episodes. The characters are all starting to feel like characters I'd actually care about watching and following. I'm no longer just watching this show because of Coulson and the Marvel connections.

Though Coulson is still cool too of course. He's had some good moments over last 2 episodes too, from the talk with the fireman to the talk with May to his navigating of the Shield hierarchy.
