Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

While it's not a mega hit, the ratings appear to have stabilized. Add that to the fact that it's number two in its timeslot, and that it's produced by a Disney company airing on a Disney network (they would rather pay themselves than another company), and I think the chances of a renewal are better than 50%.

It's also advertising for the Marvel theatrical releases. Even if not directly, it keeps he brand in people's minds.

One thing I would like to know is how the ratings compare to the same timeslot this same time last year. Rises in those ratings are also helpful in the renewal decisions.

^This is the first scripted drama to do this well against NCIS in a LONG time.

That is another tick in the plus column for them.

I would be more surprised if the show wasn't renewed. I think it will get a second season, and find itself in a different slot on the schedule to give it a chance to grow an audience without being in competition with the CBS juggernaut NCIS.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I'm pretty sure it will be renewed-- my worry is more that it will be re-tooled.

I'm just ready for March 4th! Glad the Olympics are over.
Is it bad I didn't watch any of if? I mean any. Sure I saw highlights during the news but I never sat down to intentionally watch it.

Just saw the pre-credits for March 4th.

Do NOT miss this episode. It looks like some questions will be answered and new ones raised.

Quick question: is that Marvel Studios special airing on March 18 INSTEAD of an Agents Of SHIELD episode?

It appears that way. Same timeslot.

So now does no one ever die in MCU because Coulson will make Fury save them?

Not if they're major characters. Only redshirts are truly expendable.

Well, they created the rules for this, so I'll let them explain it before I worry too much.

Certainly, Coulson's experience is something described as cruel to ever do to anyone else. Skye's not dead yet so it's technically different. We'll have to see what happens there and how it works.

Also, Coulson's gambling that the SHIELD vaults have stuff that will do what Skye medically needs in a fashion somewhat less drastic than was needed to revive him. Not an entirely unreasonable gamble, under the circumstances.
