Default Re: Disney/Marvel & ABC working on Avengers spin-off tv show? - Part 1

That said, I hope the effects in SHIELD are more on par with that show and less with Once Upon a Time, because the CGI in Once is my absolute least favorite part about it. The FX seemed to improve a bit in S2, but in S1, they were sometimes downright atrocious.
I got hooked bad. I loved it. I've said before that it had the same sense of mystery that made Lost so compelling early on. But then it peaked with Company Man and just... petered out.

I blame season 2 on the writers strike and everything after that is Loebs fault.

The people scattered gold-dust before my horses feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back."
