I loved Stan Lee's narration on those old Spider-Man cartoons I grew up on so I think I must turn a blind eye to any failings he has. Plus, it's Stan Lee!

Oh the holo-table gag was so funny......ugh. Nice Blonski reference but the humor is so forced on this show.
I was expecting Ward to grumble "why can't we get a JARVIS?!"

A pretty good ep, right up there with "Eye Spy" and the pilot as the series' best to date.

Lets do a test.

Did you believe that the character Stan was playing had just ####ed those women holding him up, and was about to #### those women holding him up?

If the answer is yes, then he is a great actor, if the answer is no, then you have not been paying attention because that is Stan Lee and the only reason that there wasn't a post wrap party orgy is Stan's 7pm sharp bedtime.
I do think Christopher has a point there Guy, Stan Lee may not be a great actor, but he is a decent actor. Even his long monologue in Mallrats worked for me.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I'm not saying he is a bad actor, I don't think I said that, because even in Mallrats he was a "version" of himself.

That would make him, in Christopher's own terms "a neutral actor".

Fair enough, I misread one of your posts than. No big deal.

It's not stunt casting if Stan is in 90 percent of Marvel's media products at least once.

Ben had Thing twins with Alicia in Earth X, and they were adorable.

I'm not fighting you, but remember Ms Marvel The She-Thing?

She should have had comparable interlocking anatomy to what Ben had going on.

Hilariously (Peter David Script) what the Gray Hulk said when he first met the She Thing: "My god Grimm! What the hell happened to you!? You look awful!!!"
LOL--no I don't remember that!

I don't quite get the complaints about Lee's acting. His delivery here wasn't that different from how he talks in real life, judging from interviews. No, it's not Hamlet, but if someone says scripted dialogue in a way that sounds like their everyday speech, I wouldn't call that bad acting.
I always love the Stan cameo, but do you really think that he can hold a sustained performance?

I love the irony of someone with a NuTrek avatar calling anything else "shit".

As a fan of "classic" Trek, Abramsverse Trek, and Agents of SHIELD...enough.

Again, it depends on what you're asking of him. Could he play, say, Odin or Magneto? No. Could he play J. Jonah Jameson, as he often wanted to? Possibly with some degree of panache, but not a lot of range, no. But can he play someone that's basically Stan Lee doing what Stan Lee does best, which is the only thing we really want and expect from him? Sure! He's been a master huckster and carnival barker for half a century. He's the undisputed top celebrity of the comic-book universe. He's hosted his own reality show -- a job which entailed a great deal of acting, because the last thing one finds in a reality show is reality.

So yes -- I think Stan Lee is very capable of holding a sustained performance... as Stan Lee. As the public persona he's been hyping and honing for longer than I've been alive. His whole career as a celebrity is a sustained performance in that sense.

Being yourself is not acting.

Always playing the same character is barely acting.

I think the Stan Show is fantastic, but it is still the Stan show.
Kinda describes John Wayne.
