Hopefully Smulders/Hill will be kept far away from the SHIELD series. There is a long list of established agents from the comics that I'd prefer to see before they use this thoroughly unlikable character. Even if Smulders were capable of pulling it off I'd say the same. The show should be focused more on the agents' missions than on conflict with a Janey One-Note tyrant in their ranks.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
