    I have a feeling he's an expert in "wiggly bits."

    Seemingly not. A costume gag, I guess.

    Decent episode so far.

    Not bad episode so far. I should have seen that gun snatch coming a mile away.

    I'd like to see Quinn become a regular villian for Shield.

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

    that must have been this week's Coulson clue. He's rusty with his gun.

    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.

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

    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.
