Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

When I watched this week's episode, I kept thinking that the mastermind would be revealed as Basil Sandhurst (The Controller). Sandhurst has ties to SHIELD, Iron Man and even Thanos; so he would be a great fit for the show; and with the show having already used somebody like Graviton, I think that Controller is fair game.

Of course, we may yet see Sandhurst is behind the whole thing...

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I think this was the best episode so far. It was kind of a fun spy-fi thriller, which exactly what I was expecting the series to be. We also got some possible build-up of the big bad and some nice character moments for all of the characters, so for me there was a lot to like here.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I really enjoyed that episode, there were only a couple of negative things for me.

1. I don't really like the formula of "introduce a gadget in the first couple of minutes then use it in the climax" every episode.

2. Touching eyes really freaks me out so I had to look away from the screen quite a bit

But overall I liked that episode a lot. There were a few moments where I lol'd and a couple of nice little twists. Did anyone else think that Ward looked a lot like Clark Kent in the glasses?

Yes. Yes, I did.

It would have been really funny if somebody had said that.

In response to trekkiebaggio, I completely agree on the eye thing. I can watch movies where people get cut in half, or saw their own arm off, but I can't watch any form of eye-surgery....

At least this time with the "Night-night" pistol, it got used two or three times...and the first instance would've been the end of act two.

Yeah, I don't think this follows the formula of introduce at the beginning, use in the climax. It was really just used throughout.

Would you rather they used it without introducing it first?

I actually had to go through multiple eye surgeries in my late teens to deal with a retinal melanoma, so I've actually had needles stuck into my eye like that on a number of occasions. So this brought back some unpleasant memories for me. My father was just as squeamish about watching it as you guys are, but I actually had to go through it.

I suppose it's a natural reflex to be hypersensitive about eye damage, given how important and vulnerable our eyes are. The brain tends to react the same way to the feelings and responses of others as it does to its own, so our dismay at seeing others' eyes subjected to trauma no doubt reflects our instinct to protect our own eyes from harm.

Lots of men in glasses look like Clark Kent. That's kind of the idea behind Clark Kent -- that he's a nondescript everyman.

Of course not, but it seems like in the episodes so far they've mentioned a little gadget at the beginning just so it can be used towards the end.

However, I did like the foreshadowing of the conversation between Ward and Coulson when Ward said something along the lines of, "It must have been hard to be betrayed by someone you trained."

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

But they used it in the middle too. Does that make a difference or do you just not like them introducing something at the beginning so they can then use it at any point later on? In fact, I didn't even remember them using it at the end.
