ViciousX: Agents of SHIELD sucks and I look forward to its cancellation with glee.


To be fair, if you're such a big fan of Glee, you may not be this show's target audience...

On the  plus side low ratings will at least guantee an episode where Simmons, Skye and May will need to dress up in skimpy clothing in order to infultrate a brothel.

The show is such a waste.  The porn star quality acting really kills it.   Too bad.   It could have been working in conjunction with the movies.   Expanding on things that happen in the movies or are mentioned.  How cool would it have been if Coulson is briefing Captain America about the whereabouts of The Winter Soldier in movie, and have tv episodes where they are trying to track him down and do surveillance?  Instead we get the Skye show.  I was happy when she got shot.  But got annoyed when the brought her back and made a whole episode trying to convince us she isn't useless.  I groaned every time they said "if Skye was here" in the last episode.

Oh, I know.  The Clairvoyant is white Nick Fury from the 616 universe.  That's why he seems to know so much about how SHIELD operates.  Hopefully they get The Hoff to reprise the role.

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...

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.

Or FOX can take it and merge it with Glee.

Son of Thunder: DjangoStonereaver: Where the people who ran got the thing, though, is possibly the question, given that it
wasn't a SHIELD facility.  I'm hoping it was run/founded by Arnim Zola myself.

I like that idea.  I was wondering what the MCU would do with him.

I doubted that they'd be up for giving him the full torso-face treatment, until I saw this.


Also, more circumstantial evidence that it is Zola:  he was very familiar with Asgardian technology as The
Red Skull's chief scientist, and if anyone would have the carcass of a Frost giant lying around, he would.

It was a frost giant, people.


Kree.  They need something to reveal the week before Guardians of the Galaxy.

I really hate how that's basically what this show has come down to.  An advertisement for the movies.  Which is why I hope Arrow doesn't get tied into the movie universe.


If I wasn't lazy, and had photoshop skills, I'd photoshop that stupid tweet about Wonder Woman and GoTG, and change it to...

"Marvel's all like, look, this hacker chick is really a secret, and here's some fake Asgardians!  And DCs all like, "here's flash, suicide squad, and Harley farking Quinn"

   I just wish there was more SHIELD in Agents of SHIELD.  SHEILD is Nick Fury and the Howling Commandos on a massive flying helicarrier full of hover jets and flying cars and an army of militarized agents with weird sci-fi technology fighting against HYDRA. Instead we get some kids in a flying RV chasing after some generic evil rich guy.
 It's supposed to be like G.I. Joe and instead we get Scooby Doo.

 I wish Disney would spend some money and get Samuel Jackson to pop up every episode for a video briefing or something. Maybe they could land that stupid plane on the helicarrier every once in a while so we can see the real SHIELD and not just a bunch of guys in business suits in an office building in Canada.

 Or maybe they could get somebody not related to Joss Whedon to run the show.

Facetious_Speciest: Maybe Jed is just poorly trotting out his brother's playbook.


Yeah, that's been my suspicion as well for what is behind my perception of the show as an attempt to do a Joss Whedon show.  I'd hate to be THIS much of a jerk, but I will say that I'm tempted to say that it seems like a lesser version of a Whedon show because it's being made by the lesser version of a Whedon.

DjangoStonereaver: czetie: By the way, am I the only straight male on Fark who doesn't think that Chloe Bennet is particularly attractive? She's got this whole baby faced chipmunk think going on that does nothing for me.

Good.

More for me, then.

I think she's dreamy.  Not a great actress, but not incompetant and very purdy.

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.



This thread was over with this comment.

When will the damn TV networks learn that the age of them dictating show dates and times are over.  More people will watch it on Hulu, when it's convenient for them, on devices other than their TVs.

If god damn USA would have learned this lesson, Psych would not have had to end.  Instead they took the show, and went WAY TOO farkING LONG between seasons, then refused to let Hulu show more than like one or two episodes from some time earlier in the season.  Their target audience just sort of sat and waited for it to be available until we gave up.

That both intrigues and horrifies me. I fully supported the Nick Fury tv movie because I could see that if that did well the suits would be more willing to put money behind other things and we now have Marvel movies that are really fun to watch.  But the Hoff would want to make the show about HIM and that would be terrifying.  On the other hand it would be cool.

Ivandrago: This is my main criticism. You have the whole of the Marvel universe to play with you don't take advantage of it. There are plenty of minor, ancillary super heroes and villain that will never, ever get a movie deal, so they should be used on the show.


There was a time I thought that, but now we have a Guardians of the Galaxy movie coming out that actually looks good, so.......

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.
