Not yet. I'm out of town until Sunday I have it recorded, so I won't get a chance until then. I figured the pilot would be kind of Meh. They usually are. I'll give it several episodes until I make a decision on it.

I really enjoyed it. Lagged a bit in the middle, but I liked it.

Of course, I wasn't going in terribly excited. I haven't been following all the little details released over the last few months (or year).

Notice any Whedon alumni besides Gunn and Book?

I think my expectations were to high. It felt like Whedon Lite. It didn't have the energy I was hoping for, I guess. I'll continue watching for a bit to see how it progresses.

It was okay. I liked the nods here and there to things.

It wasn't great, but it didn't have to be.

Basically, it's the X-Files meets the Marvel Universe.

I'm hoping some of the mysteries are actually worth the wait.

Sort of. He was hugely involved in the first episode, but he won't be the showrunner if it sticks around. He has 2 more Avengers movies to make. He has stated that his role will mostly be writing if the show lasts, which is fine by me.

You guys are a tough crowd. I thought it was phenomenal. The action and special effects were incredible for a television show, and I really like the cast.

I'll wait for episode 2 to get really excited, though, as the premiere was all Joss. We'll see if the staff writers can meet the bar he's set.

I liked the bit where Coulsen came out from the shadows to make an entrance, and said something along the lines of 'I think there's a bulb out'. It was a classic Whedonism that fell flat because of the poor set up. And that just about summed up the show for me - a mash up of different minds all wanting something different from the show.

It was mediocre. If it didn't have Marvel's name attached to it, it wouldn't even register. Expecting another Firefly I wasn't, and unsuprisingly didn't get. It was full of lazy cliches that made it nothing more than a rehash of everything we've seen before. The main character looks like a male model. The female lead like a female model. They both hate each other on the surface but obviously want to get into bed with each other. There are two geeks who don't fit in with the two leads, but they all end up balancing each other out. The story was predictable and slow. I didn't care about any of the characters - including Agent Coulsen. He died. We saw him die. It's lazy to give us all this 'what happened?!' crap when it seems apparent that the writers just couldn't come up with a good enough story for it so will stretch it out as long as possible to create a sense of mystery that really only disguises their own shortcomings.

It is a good idea for a show - but it's never going to measure up to the movies in scale, and to make up for that it really needs to be well written. Unfortunately it's not. It's tired, predictable fare for a lazy night in and that's a shame - because with series like Breaking Bad now setting the standard for TV networks, everyone should be trying harder.

Warehouse 13 beat this show to it, and in my opinion, in a more fun way. Sure, Warehouse 13 is also lazy night-in stuff, but at least it came first - Agents of SHIELD brings nothing new to the table.

That it is. But that isn't what it should be aiming for, it's not hard to be better than crap. Fortunately this kind of mediocrity is still prevalent enough in TV land for us to be able to enjoy a vast wealth of amazing programmes that see this mediocrity as a chance to be recognised.

I just think, with all the money Marvel has, they could spend time making something actually good. Hell, they have enough money to film an entire episode, pull it apart, refilm it again and again until it's perfect. This show has no excuses for being so poor. Still, maybe I'm being too harsh. I'll know after another episode or two, I guess.

Okay I've finally caught up with my DVR. I think a lot of people want to like this because they're fans of either Whedon or The Avengers/Marvel movies, but the want and Disney's cash alone won't make it great. I love Whedon's stuff, enough to know that Clark Gregg can't pull off Whedon's writing and lines well enough to carry this show. He's only a main because he's already been established in 5-10 minute bits throughout the movies, I don't think he's a "Whedon guy" when it comes to pulling off what others in his shows can do with his material.

This show has potential, especially with the "Big Bad" TV formulas and a treasure trove of ideas from the House of Marvel. I just think they're going to be a bit gun shy and not want to pull off the big stuff in lieu of possibly greedily holding back on the show so they can attempt to instead maximize those ideas in their movies. We'll see, but I just don't really feel compelled to keep watching. Maybe for Ming Na though, she's great.

In England it's on Friday evening at 8pm on a very popular channel. I won't be surprised if it doesn't last long - once the initial 'Marvel' name wears off, this will be nothing more than a 4pm Sunday afternoon affair.

People do want to like this, me included, but I gave up less than halfway through the second episode. I was only watching to give it another chance, but it just got worse. Coulsen's charm has worn out already - proof that he worked as a third-tier character in the movies because he was likeable as a background character rather than a leading man. The 'hero' is just boring, a cardboard cutout good-looking agent of blah. The main girl, yeah, same. The two 'geeks' are pointless - and seem to only have items that can have some pithy idea attached to them - the '7 dwarves' are only 7 so that they can be named after the 7 dwarves, but surely having 20 of those things would be quicker? Ming Na - she's ridiculous. I completely disagree on her character, she's one of the main reasons I turned it off. When she held those two guns on the army guys, eurgh. It was awful - every cliche of a battle-hardened 'mystery' background put into one character who just makes me laugh with her seriousness. 'We're too exposed, I'm going to find somewhere else to park'. Whoever wrote that is in the wrong job.

This show is awful, and now, everytime I see Agent Coulsen in the films, I'm going to see the character put forward in the show, which isn't good.

Paul Sanderson

Episode 3 was as underwhelming as the previous 2. Not awful, but not all that great either. None of the characters are particularly interesting, save Coulsen himself.

I'd be very surprised if this gets picked up for a second season, though the cynical me says it will based on the money they can make from merchandise and advertising.

Given up after 1 and a half episodes. Didn't even bother watching it last night - I have much better things to watch on DVD, and GTA V to play. That's the problem now, these shows have a lot of competition, and this show is just lazy.

I bet those ratings are pretty accurate - there's nothing here to draw people back in.

Coulsen also just isn't strong enough a character to carry through to a series. Whedon's style was perfect for his little moments in the films, but his attitude just comes off as smug when drawn out over an entire hour. In the films he worked because he seemed like a good guy impossibly out of his depth but dealing with it with a sense of humour uncommon for a guy in his position. It doesn't work in the series - as soon as he draws a gun and says 'stay on my 6' the whole character is shattered.

cheeseisgood1918
10-12-2013, 04:55 PM
I agree with pretty much everything people are saying about the show being underwhelming, but I've also watched enough TV to know that most shows don't really find their groove in the first season. Even the first season of Buffy was kind shameful compared to the rest of the series. Of course that's not true of every show, but a great many of them.

I'll give it a season to keep me interested, and then we'll see. Right now, I feel like the characters are kind of wooden because I'm betting the network execs have too much control. It just smacks of an AC exec going, "we need the following archetypes for this show to succeed, get me a spunky main character with daddy issues, and she needs to be sexy! I also need a hardened soldier badass type, to be her foil/love interest, and he needs to be sexy! We also need a grizzled veteran in a catsuit, and make it sexy! We also need a couple of nerds because we need some of that Big Bang demo... Make them sexy.


If the show can last, and get decent ratings, the showrunners and writers will get more autonomy and the show will get better imo.

Comix Obsession
10-13-2013, 02:16 PM
Agreed about the 'make them/it sexy!' thing - it reeks of that.

I disagree about needing to give it a season - I haven't yet run into one show where the first season hasn't hooked me. Battlestar Galactica hooked me with the pilot, Firefly hooked me with the first episode, Breaking Bad (I'm on season 2) hooked me from the first episode. I'm the kind of person that doesn't turn things off easily - I hate turning off shows mid-episode in case they get better. I just didn't care with Agents of SHIELD - I was reaching for the remote out of boredom in the first 20 minutes.

Sure, some shows take a while to get going - but it doesn't mean they can't be good whilst doing so. Everyone says season 1 of Breaking Bad is the weakest, but it's still amazing. That comes from looking back after a few seasons, not from the start. Honestly, this show should be good from the get go - look at what came before it - it's not like they didn't have a good idea of what to go for.

cheeseisgood1918
10-13-2013, 06:02 PM
I don't disagree with any of that, but it's hard to compare the great shows you mentioned to Shield. Breaking Bad is on AMC, a channel know for taking chances letting creative types doing what they want with their projects, so Vincent Gilligan and his writers got to do the show they want.

Firefly was cancelled half way through it's first season, because FOX didn't really get it, they just new Joss Whedon had a surprise hit on his hands with Buffy, a show they had passed on, and the WB or CW or whoever at the time was cashing in big time, so they wanted to try to capture some of that lightening in a bottle. When they saw the end product, they panicked when it didn't get 10 million viewers right away. So sure, they let him do his show, but then they took it away almost immediately.

The thing about AoS is that it has a lot of powerful beurocrats with a lot of money invested in it, and a lot of pressure on it. The creators and writers of the show probably have constant notes, guidelines and orders coming down from all directions. Personally, I would have a hard time doing any creative storytelling in that kind of environment. Any kind of plot you throw at that show that is anything but within the formula the execs want the show to fall into probably gets rejected outright. It would be a crazy stifling way to work.

Now, if someone working on that show is able to take a chance, and it pays off and the show makes some ratings gains, maybe the writers could wrest some control from the execs and the show can grow and get better. That's my hope at least.

I personally don't think it is too much to ask for decent scripting and acting in any tv show. To me that is where Shield fails. However, I did enjoy this weeks episode far more than the episodes that have come before it. It looks like it might be starting to pick up steam. I still would really like to see them pull in some lower tier superhero, or super powered characters from the Marvel universe.

It would be an awesome show if it had the "Fringe" quality to it with a strong dousing of Marvel.

So far it's been more Knight Rider (80's) in tone, than what they hinted at, which was more Spies meets Fringe.

Give us Hydra, AIM, Lavateria, etc....something.

I personally thought their (Marvel/Disney/ABC/ESPN) mentality with all the hype was Go Big or Go Home. Right now, they are going home.

Just saw the first episode. My first impression is that the characters are mostly forgettable and there is not one character that we can immediately identify with.

Or Revolution for that matter? And maybe it was just me, but the first 6-8 episodes of Grimm were pretty bad, at least that's what I felt like when I watches the initial run. I haven't watched really any of the other shows mentioned, but with the exception of Covert Affairs, I've had a lot of people tell me bad things about every one of them at first. I've also had some of those people change their tune after sticking with those shows.

The thing about bout AoS is that it hasn't found its legs yet. Maybe it never will, but I have a feeling the writers will at some point insert a "big bad" into the show and have a more cohesive overall story arc for a season or two. That's when the show will get interesting.

Is it great right now? No. I don't think it's horrible either though. And it's certainly better than if ABC replaces it with Midwifing with the Stars or some such nonsense.

The thing about bout AoS is that it hasn't found its legs yet. Maybe it never will, but I have a feeling the writers will at some point insert a "big bad" into the show and have a more cohesive overall story arc for a season or two. That's when the show will get interesting.

Is it great right now? No. I don't think it's horrible either though. And it's certainly better than if ABC replaces it with Midwifing with the Stars or some such nonsense.

I was more or less talking production quality, better actors, and better visuals.

I listed a number of shows, so what if you don't like NCIS. They still put out a good product. Agents of Shield remind me of old A-TEAM and Knight Rider episodes as far as camp and story telling. I guess I expected something more spy related mixed within the Marvel Universe.

If you're talking about the episode which tied in with Thor The Dark World , I would have to agree with you. Why don't the writers of this show use more tie ins with the Marvel universe ? There is such a gold mine out there to be used that would make this show much better than what it is already .

After watching Almost Human and the quality of production that went into that....Disney....because I blame Disney...really dropped the ball on Agents of SHIELD.

I keep waiting for the show to really take off. I wish they could just go on some straight up missions. Then best pay off the show so far was the Thor tie in and the mission where the special agent and fitz went to the bar. (Felt like a buddy movie)
