Congrats, Coulson. You just created a super-villain.

Perhaps.

Good episode, probably the best one so far so the series is at least on an incline. Still too reliant on some typical TV tropes and still nothing blowing other shows out of the water, but good.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

eh last week's post-credits scene was more interesting. At least with this one, they are clearly building to something.

I think my biggest problem with the show right now is that there no is charismatic Big Bad in the series so far. There show really needs a more interesting main plot to drive the first season. The show feels too much like bad guy of the week.
Well, it's a comic book, so it makes sense to have multiple villains. I do agree that the first episode seemed to suggest there was an orchestrating force that I'm not positive I see (although it could be Quinn).

I liked this episode. It was entertaining and worked for the most part. I'd say fun overall. Good setup for a return comic book villain (and the guy who played Hall did a good job). The special effects in those scenes were quite good for television.

I did and they were spectacular.

I still think the show is somewhat generic but this was a decent episode and Skye is growing on me. Good looking and an interesting character to boot. Maybe Fitzsimmons will start growing on me too. Our science duo has something there.

Also, that whole graviton thing had me thinking of Asgardian tech.

Yeah, still generic. I think FitzSimmons are growing on me a *bit* but it's slow going. Skye's grown more on me most of all.

Simmons looks pretty good with her hair down....She is Simmons, right?

This was the least engaging of the three episodes for me. It's a fun show, I'll stick with it, but nothing really wow-worthy so far.

They really need to start introducing super-villains ASAP, so this is a step in the right direction. The tag scene should have been more though, like him busting out of prison.

What panty shot? Whose panties? I assume Skye as she jumps into the pool?

Yeah, in the promos as she jumps off the balcony in the commercials her dress flows up giving us a panty shot. In the episode itself the scene cuts before the dress billows up.

Coulson's panties would make all the papers.

Suddenly "crossdresser" becomes more prevalent than LMD or Zombie or ghost or mirror universe doppleganger, and we can just muddle through to season two.

With all the muscle memory talk and then Coulson's "rustiness" it was close to beating you over the head with "You see? He's not the same Coulson because he no longer inhibits the same body for those skills to have been retained."
