Well shiat.  It's on so rarely no one knows when to watch it.
 
2014-03-06 11:13:06 AM  
Remember when a show that was on every tuesday night was actually on every tuesday night?

That last episode like six weeks ago - T.R.A.C.K.S. - that was pretty good. I tuned in looking for the next one three times before I gave up and figured I'd catch it on-demand or via hulu or something.
 
2014-03-06 11:23:02 AM  
No kidding.  They go to mid-season hiatus, bring it back for two episodes and then it disappears for a month.  It's almost like networks screw with Whedon shows for lulz.

1/7,
1/14,
2/4,
3/4

That's not a weekly show, that's a special once a month where you have to remember back three months to understand the story.

It'll probably be a much better show when you can watch all 16 episodes back-to-back via Netflix or DVD.

Seriously!  I just DVR it and am suprised when it shows up as new in the list.
 
2014-03-06 11:27:37 AM  
I wanted to watch it, but I had company over. Now I have to wait a week to catch it on the ABC app because you have to be a cable subscriber to watch the newest episode.

Considering the insane timing the last 3 episodes had, it's ABCs fault.

Ironically, it'shiatting it's stride now.

And, the Whedonites will soon be Jossplaining why this is different from the other turds he's managed to have cancelled in a year, and it's the network's fault that the show's doing poorly, and if they only put it in the right time slot.

Just saying, Whedonites, fool me 4 times...

Definitely getting better.  Is the show with Sif going to air next week? Or do we have to wait another month?

I've enjoyed Joss's work. Loved Buffy, Angel, Firefly. Didn't care for Dollhouse. Loved The Avengers. Loved his "Much Ado About Nothing".

Agents of SHIELD sucks and I look forward to its cancellation with glee.
 
2014-03-06 11:32:12 AM  
Meh. I want to like it. The women are hot, I like Marvel properties in general...but it just doesn't do it for me. I continue to watch it, as my wife has far more patience for television shows than I do, but it just isn't there. It's full of the same nonsensical Whedon tropes every Whedon series is, they don't use enough of their Marvel opportunities (even if just in reference), and it's just boring. Not on an individual episode basis, per se, but as a whole. It's going nowhere and it's a godsdamned waste of Coulton and Ming Na Wen.

But that's just, like, my opinion, man.

Same here. Noticed last night "ooooh a  new A o S!"   I love my DVR hopper and I think AoS is actually getting better with each expisode. Except the previews for the next episode showed Askabar charectures comming into play....eh. I think the the whole Thor aspects hasn't added much to the fanchise.

At least my DVR may have grabbed it, I do hate the way they're jacking with the schedule, it's very foxish

Why is he still producing stuff on OTA networks?  His fanbase isn't gonna compete with Scandal or whatever's a network hit.  But his shows would be hits for SciFy.

I can't figure out the schedule anymore.  It seems more frustrating these past two tv seasons than it was in the past to follow a show.
 
2014-03-06 11:37:20 AM  
I like the show and wish it truly was weekly.

Can someone tell me what the blue half guy in the TAHITI tube is supposed to be?
 
2014-03-06 11:37:22 AM  

EyeballKid: eddievercetti: it's ABCs fault.

Well, that didn't take long.


If those episode air dates posted above are correct, then it's really hard not to see that as fair criticism. In three months the show has only aired 6 episodes, and it's ostensibly a weekly show? It's only aired two consecutive weeks once so far, once with a one week delay, once with a two week delay, and twice with a three week delay.
 
2014-03-06 11:38:18 AM  
for a show set in a superhero world about an agency that often deals with super heros, I expected...well, more superheros.
 
2014-03-06 11:38:34 AM  
It's my fault, sorry guys.  Big Coulson fan, but I've only seen 1.5 episodes so far.  I'll get around to it.
 
2014-03-06 11:40:23 AM  
Has there ever been a show that wasn't hard by a lengthy hiatus?

And if I'm not mistaken an episode there was also aired out of order.

It was pretty bad to start, but the last few episodes have actually been entertaining. It's just been that the last three eps have been spread out over 2 months...

Wouldn't surprise me if it is more of a Marvel thing. Plus joss doesn't have much involvement in the show past the pilot episode.

The saddest part of this link is how few viewers B99 has.

Who actually thinks a mid season break followed by a single ep and then break for the olympics is a good idea?  Thank god my DVR has series record.

To be fair, if you're such a big fan of Glee, you may not be this show's target audience...
 
2014-03-06 11:50:54 AM  
You know, looking at those ratings across the board for Tuesday, everyone was terrible  It wasn't long ago that the 2.7 that NBC (!) led the night with would be last among the big 4 networks.  And third place, for a genre show crime procedural, opposite a structural similar crime procedural with a much more established, if dwindling, audience (NCIS) isn't too bad.

mrmaster: I can't figure out the schedule anymore.  It seems more frustrating these past two tv seasons than it was in the past to follow a show.


Tell me about it.  I watch a lot of television (there's some good stuff on now), and all the networks are going farking crazy with hiatuses this season.  Three weeks on, two weeks off, one week on, two weeks off - enough already!

The writing is slowly coming along and still isn't quite where it should be, but even if it was this sort of shenanigans have killed shows that were out of the gate as awesome as they should be.

TV execs got no sense of history apparently.

I assume you mean the 2 years of half season but even with half seasons they are weekly shows.  AOS has rarely ever have back to back weeks.

Hey, not every actress hired to be a set of boobs can act too. Jeri Ryan is a notable exception, not the rule.

those who waited a month to see the next episode, please send your hate mail and death threats to the Olympic committee.

/If you don't have the contact information, just send it to your government representatives, who embezzled many tax dollars for your countries Olympics at the time.

I believe their logic is that if the Marvel universe is such a powerful vehicle people should be tuning in to boost their other shows believing the show might be on. I'm sure they're laughing at how AMC wastes the potential of their line up: why do they only show the Walking Dead on Sundays on a set interval when they could just show Small Town Security, Game of Arms, or any of their other shows randomly every couple weeks to get everyone to watch those instead?

EyeballKid: eddievercetti: it's ABCs fault.

Well, that didn't take long.


No, I'm not a Whedon guy but the timing of episodes has been insane.

The show has a 2 week break, shows new episode then takes the whole month off thanks to the Olympics and now is catching up to have their show connected to Cap 2.

I feel ABC has not only farked over this show but pretty much their Tuesday lineup.

/Bright side, NCIS had low numbers too.

2014-03-06 12:02:29 PM  

OreJen: Well, whatever Skye's thing is, we know it isn't healing.


The theory about her that I like is that her power is some sort of technomancy. When she does her "hacking", it's actually her power being used, but she doesn't realize that.

I think the show started off okay. Lots of potential, but little of it realized. Since it started getting more serialized with the Clairvoyant plot, it's gotten a lot better. Hopefully, the whole plot line with that gets resolved this season, and a new big-bad is the focus next year. That would be a format that works.

Dollhouse was pretty bad when it started, but got great once the more serialized plot took over. At least with Shield, ABC/Disney will give it every possible chance to improve before pulling the plug.

Well let's hope they get serious about supporting it with scheduling at least- that seems like the thing that can the network can do that'll help the production staff and crew the most.

Well, they ran a Thor episode when the movie came out, with another one next week that corresponds to the DVD release. Then there's the 'Uprising' subtitle that showed up for the next episode preview that I'm guessing is the start of a Cap 2 tie-in.

ABC will never cancel this show as long as they have a guaranteed 60-minute infomercial for their major film franchises.
