I enjoy the series, but I watch it more for the mythology / grand scheme aspects than individual characters. Though there are characters that I root for (Coulson, Mulan (I keep forgetting her character's name here), Sky, and Simmons), I really don't care about the others and really don't care what happens to them. I'm not even really a comics person (except for Archie), so I don't get the references or whatever, but I don't really care to either.
Wow. I've rarely seen a show so gracefully....


manage to retroactively lump what seemed like filler into the main plot. So good.


Also, I'm calling it. Next season: a SHIELD Space Ape will return for revenge. That is if one doesn't crop up in Guardians first.
The show has become watchable, but it's still not that great.

I'll admit to being slightly disappointed, mostly because of the advertising painting this episode as

Coulson's group immediately finding "Providence" as well as Skye learning Ward's true nature. But, setting that aside, I did enjoy Coulson's total breakdown when he thinks he led everyone to a dead end. Ward and Garrett also have excellent chemistry together, and I got a kick out of Patton Oswalt playing a SHIELD Agent, thought at times it just felt like he was playing himself. Aside from him, the standout from this episode was that one guy who shouted "Hail HYDRA!" before being told to tone it down.

As for intergrating seeming filler into the plot, I only really enjoyed what looked like the Berserker Staff, since that was one of the better episodes of the weak first half of the season. The laser and Gravatonium, did feel kind of bland and underdeveloped and still do, the only difference being that I can't ignore the Gravatonium episode as much, whereas the laser can just be from an unseen adventure that other agents had been on. The episode also feels oddly structured, like entering the secret base was the end of the episode and everything else was the start of something new, with the end just feeling like a really long commercial break until next week. Still hoping they manage to capture last week's magic.

EDIT:

Also, goddamn it, writers, please keep Ward evil, please? He is so good at being evil, let him die an unrepentant bastard, do NOT have him pull off a heroic sacrifice in order to save one of the teammates, stick to your frakking guns on this one! Also, referencing this recap of the episode: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles...ovidence.3 PLEASE let it turn out that Skye is actually Spider-Woman or at least has some type of pheromone power as to why she gets such special treatment other than being a main character.
Any guesses as to


which organization May's mom worked for?
I saw the first of the two back to back episodes, then saw Captain America, then the second episode. Worked out very nicely.
Blugh...I imagine it's nice to see the cellist for some, but I wonder if it was necessary for

Coulson to realize that he has to forgive May (actually, did anyone find that confusing? Sorry, I wasn't paying that much attention to that part of the episode
The Skye stuff was actually the best part of the episode. Why? 'Cause it moved the plot forward! ;-)

At least next week's episode features the return of Colonel Talbot and Maria Hill, which promises to be theoretically interesting, at least.
Starting to watch Agents of Shield finally. Made it through the first two episodes. Have to say that not really disappointed with the show. It's one of those shows that needed to stretch a little before it could hit the ground running. Which judging from what people are saying, it's hit the ground running. Looking forward to seeing the series progress over the course of this first season.

Also have to say that I enjoyed the second episode cause of the team-building that was going on. That was the whole purpose of the episode it seems was to bring them together a little more and work as a team. Great show so far.
Wait, Agent May was Chun Li? Why did no one tell me this?! :lol:

She was also the voice of Mulan.
