Re: Disney/Marvel & ABC working on Avengers spin-off tv show? - Part 1
They also have the advantage of not needing to use extensive SFX *every* episode. With the stars all being normal human SHIELD operatives, the typical episode probably won't need anything beyond a couple MA/guns fight scenes, and you can potentially have investigative/character episodes that have no particular SFX at all. This means they can conserve budget to spend it where it will matter.
