It's still shocking that he got cashiered for that because it was his MO the entire time he was here.

On topic: One thing I hope the writers do is flesh out the backgrounds of the characters. The characters have clean slates to start with, so the writers won't be constrained in creating their histories. Coulson, in particular, needs to have a realistic life story created. He has been in four movies and two short films, yet all we know about him personally is that he dated a cellist who left him for some reason. Since he is the lead character, we should get to know who he is, where he comes from and what motivates him. All of the characters need to be compelling, really, for the show to work.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
