The first 90 seconds of "Turn, Turn, Turn". Very cool. Best open of the season.

I like Garrett's taste in music.

I really recommend everyone to watch the movie as soon as possible
Yeah, the bastards have got me...I usually avoid opening weekends, but I'm planning to fight the crowds out of a combination of wanting to be up to snuff on any elements that may be informing the TV show's story, and being genuinely stoked to see it.

We're not talking about speculating. What if, upon watching next week's episode, it's apparent the two are intertwined? In other words, what if the episode itself is a spoiler?
My suggestion would be that if we learn something about the movie in the TV episodes that have aired, then it's fair game here. If we want to get into details of TWS that aren't revealed in the show, that should be coded. But there's so much potential for error there....

At which point is it allowed to talk about what happens in TWS without spoiler code in this thread? After next weeks episode?
There's a very simple answer to that question:

If next week's episode spoils TWS, then talking about AOS-related spoilers from TWS in this thread is obviously fair game (though we should probably still avoid spoilers for non-AOS characters). If next week's episode does not spoil the ending of TWS, then people in this thread will need to be careful not to spoil the folks who haven't seen TWS yet.

At this point, I really couldn't guess one way or the other. It might spoil the end of TWS, or perhaps the episode will turn turn turn out to be action heavy, and take place over just a few hours of "real time", which may not get it all the way to the end of TWS just yet.

I will predict though that there is no way in hell the next 6 episodes will drag out without spoiling TWS. We will spend at least a few episodes in a post-TWS setting.


On the small chance that anyone hasn't gotten the hint yet, as lots of folks predicted months ago, Agents Of Shield is far more connected to a movie like TWS than it was to a movie like Thor 2.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

TWS was released globally almost simultaneously.

MAOS is released in phases across the planet slowly at inconsistent rates.

There are people who are not going to watch TWS until some time next year when their MAOS finally reaches the point that we are up to now.

Shouldn't we wait for them too?

I would say that you can watch TWS without watching AOS.
But you will probably not be able to watch AOS without seeing TWS. Or at least without having the ending of TWS spoiled by the show.


Having seen TWS, I am even more excited about where the next few episodes of AOS are going.

Gary Shandling was also in Iron Man 2?

I wouldn't mind seeing a segment of his ongoing interrogation in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

The ballgame, then? Well, okay, but "take out" could still mean non-lethally.

Ward shooting the guy was totally out of left field. I was waiting for some reason-- anything from he saw something nobody else saw to a post-hypnotic suggestion-- but apparently he was just upset. I hope this isn't some lame attempt to make the show "edgier." I have a feeling the only way out of this for him is that there won't be enough of SHIELD left to conduct a hearing.
Well, there is an obvious other explanation - he was acting under orders.
Possibly, but I doubt it. Unless it was under mind control, which would be a good defense, but not do much for his career.

However, assuming that's not the case, let's keep in mind that he touched the Berserker Staff. The anger you get from that supposedly lasts hundreds of years, so he's less likely to be the cool, calm, collected agent that started the show.
That's a good point. That would also be a good defense, but still not very good for his career.

I don't think it's about being "edgier," but that's a very vague term and can mean different things, so I'm not sure.
You know, the usual, bad-ass, hard-ass, lame-ass, shoot first and let god sort it out. Although it's true that the show treated it as both out of character and criminal. I think the only way he'll get out of it is that it will be a non-issue in the wake of the movie.

Me too, and I agree with the above sentiment.

£20 ($30.60) for the season pass on iTunes, worth it? as it's pretty hard to catch any of the episodes on UK TV right now.

Are you watching all the episodes or just catching up to the remaining ones?

Then the caveat about Coulson would have been unnecessary.

I've seen parts of the first 4-5, but here there have been gaps, time changes, etc so I can't rely on catching it on TV and it could be September before the DVD boxset.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Given that, it might be worth it. I'm assuming you can't watch it online locally (I realize ABC won't work where you are, but what about whatever station is broadcasting it)? I understand much of your question is related to the value of the product, but I'm just trying to think if it's cheaper to pay for episodes a la carte if you can watch some for free.
