Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Well, I pointed out the idea of a computer that can process so much information that it can predict the future. Then I saw MODOK's wiki page basically said the same thing.

Isn't that pretty much Persons of Interest?

Marvel did it first

He also has the ability to calculate the mathematical probability of any given event occurring; an ability so strong that it borders on precognition.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

By the way, it might be worth pointing out that while alleged "clairvoyance" can theoretically involve precognition, it's not exclusively about seeing the future. It means sensing things beyond the range of the normal senses, including things in the past or far away in the present. It doesn't mean mind reading either, just perception of things not present (it's French for "clear vision").

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Yeah, although the wiki article also has that covered. I was just addressing whether Person of Interest did it first.

Think of it like this, if the Clairvoyant turned out to be a random person would that qualify as enjoyable? It HAS to be someone significant. I don't think Victoria fits that description. She's already fairly significant in the role she's currently in.
It could easily be someone completely new to the show but well-known to the fanbase.
Exactly.

Uhhh, what? Victoria doesn't fit the description of someone significant because she's already fairly significant?
.
Yes. It would be like saying we're going to be very happy to find out who's been feeding the walkers on the Walking Dead and then it turns out to be the Governor.

Now that 7/10ths of the group are dead, it's likely that it was the bunny killer doing that.

Other new character cast: BJ Britt to play Agent Triplett

Original character or no? I had hoped it was Akala Amador, but I guess it's not in the cards.

Well if he is Triathlon/The 3-D Man, then that leads directly into SKrulls and a Secret Invasion.

Down, down, dow, oh wait we reference or have movie related guest star, jump up, then down, down, level off into slow decline. But it is getting better just taking a long time.
