There's good ways to resurrect Coulson. Convenient never-mentioned-before-super-technology simply isn't one of them. The simplest one is to say that Fury lied when he said "They called it." We never saw them call it, and we know Fury lies. It's pretty simple. No need for bad writing. :\
Completely agreed. The LMD crap was unrealistic EVEN in the context of the comics. In the movies/TV show? Complete non-starter.
And even if Fury *did* require a team of doctors to revive Coulson, which is probable, why is the whole 'holding his breath' thing even necessary? A simple, "ok, now you're going to pretend that he died, or look forward to spending the rest of your life in a very tiny underground cell" from Fury would more than suffice.
