Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Babylon 5 had a couple movies set during the series and aired at disjoint points.

Setting Third Space during the embargo from Earth, a year after the embargo had finished was weird. Lets meet god, who wants to kill us, and then we'll never talk about it again.

The Battlestar Movies Razor, and The Plan, where more about movies retroactively sliced into continuity, but hardly seamlessly.

The Futurama movies where designed to be cut into pieces and aired as a season of television... But I suspect only if they were a success.

In one of the Kim Possible Movies (Seriously fantastic Disney Cartoon.), she makes out with her side kick, (Ducky gets Molly!) and then when they following season starts, they are dating... Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable. (That still makes me smile.).

Kenny died in the South Park Movie... Which took a few years for TPTB to renegue on that stitch in continuity.

I wonder if it's to give people an extra week to watch TWS before Turn, Turn, Turn.
More likely an extra hour to get their taxes in the mail.

Wondered when that was going to either be announced or otherwise blabbed.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

In the last episode, Hand says she's heading back to the Hub before she departs. Our team has been there but has its location been revealed? In this screen shot, after being redirected from DC, the screen behind Hand places it north east of DC.

Interesting.

Given the logistics of "Operation Overkill", I would have placed The Hub in western Europe.

I assumed the Hub was in Boston.

As for movie and TV show continuity, don't forget Batman; after the movie, the bat-cycle, bat-copter, and bat-boat appeared on the show.

The "revised flight path" seems to be pointing to Europe.

If you're thinking that it's the location on the east coast of the U.S. with writing next to it, that's Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Maybe the Bus is being controlled from the Kennedy Compound.

Please try to observe the requests to avoid spoilers in here. It's been well-established that the series and the movie are intertwined in their story.

Maybe the Hub is an artificial island floating in the middle of the Atlantic.

Yeah, I'm thinking Europe.


Although I think that flight path follows the curve of the Earth so any travel east would look somewhat like that.

I seem to recall display screens in The Hub. I don't suppose any of them have any clues.

ETA: I looked. The display screens of troop movements were extremely zoomed in or generic and could have been anywhere in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, or the Caucus region. More importantly, The Hub was not on the map. I'm hoping they reveal a location, but there isn't one there.

Tonight's episode is up on Hulu, and yes, there are lot of spoilers for Winter Soldier in it.

EDIT: They seemed to have pulled it, it was up for more than an hour, so there are spoilers about it going around.

It was a nice episode.

Spoilery speculation after seeing TWS (but before seeing tonight's episode, so don't tell me anything about it):

I wish I knew about it. With AoS at its best and CA:TWS being so great, Marvel's got me all pumped for it.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

A few days ago I asked if the appearance of an Avenger(s) on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would probably end up being an unnecessary deus ex machina. Most of you thought that it would be the case. What if, on the other hand, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had more guest appearances by people like Sharon Carter/Agent 13?
