    I still want to see someone track down that Jotun beast that's running around the British isles.

    They fixed the Thor: The Dark World connection later on in the season.

    True, but while that ep was meant to be the main tie-in, there were two other episodes that - IMO - can also be considered tie-ins. There was "Repairs" where part of the 'accident' that caused all the problems was because that company was trying to recreate the portals that appeared in London during the Convergence. Then, of course, there was "Yes Men" that they tied in with Lorelei having escaped during the Dark Elves attack on Asgard.

    It wasn't as huge a fallout as CA:TWS was, but there were elements there. *shrugs shoulders* I was pretty okay with how they worked those out (but that's just my opinion and I know not everyone agrees)
    I always thought that would make for a good one-shot (featuring Sif & The Warriors Three), but alas, The Winter Soldier is not giving us a one-shot. If it never gets addressed again, I just figured that once Heimdall retook his post he transported it back to Jotunheim.

    I'm hoping that this season, since they don't have to spend money on creating the CGI bus for several scenes an episode, that they can spend more money on sets, costumes, and effects.

    In the last thread, the show added two new fans!

    Much better than cheapo laser quest Deathlok we ended getting.
    I really hope they've spent some time in the off season improving the design because it is embarrassing as is.

    That said I still added the new Deathlok run to my pull list.

    How are they going to get around this season? What happened to the bus?

    I think (and coluanprime is free to correct me if I'm wrong) they're simply referring to the fact that the Bus doesn't appear to be the central 'base' for the team anymore now that they have "The Playground" as a grounded permanent base of operations. I imagine the Bus will still be their method of getting around, but it may not feature as much. I don't know, we'll see.

    That's what I meant. I was also thinking that Jet Fuel is awful expensive for an unfunded team.

    I see. I wonder if it's going to be as internationally set now in this season.

    I do really hope Death Tag gets a better outfit as well if they have more of a budget. Although how hard can it be to make a practical suit that looks better than what he had?

    We've all seen better pulled off by cosplayers.
    It's so bloody embarrassing.

    I strongly suspect they reused a lot of footage for the Bus anyway and didn't have to animate it from scratch every week.

    How hard can that be anyway? They animated the ships in Star Trek Voyager on a weekly basis. The Bus is just one plane.

    I'll point out that Star Trek quite often reused footage of the ship flying, even in later shows. I know this because of the commentary for the mirror universe episode of Enterprise where they had painted the outside of the ship with the Imperial Empire symbol only on one side so they could reuse stock footage on the other side. Really, it's a waste of money to not reuse simple shots of the bus flying.

    Since most of the Bus footage is basically a CGI model of a plane flying they could simply render the same animation but from different angles to build up sizeable bank of useable shots, without falling into it being rather obvious (like Star Trek or the original BSG was). Wouldn't be surprised if they have already done exactly that.

    Only shots that would require new animation (new motion, interactions etc) would be action shots with other planes, plot specific usage (like flying over the ice storm) etc. Just flying about though they could use the same thing over & over.

    For Star Trek, TNG and DS9, I think they used model ships. I think it was only with Voyager that they started using CGI ships. They might have started it with one of the TNG movies first though, possibly First Contact.

    Fury would likely have a good few sizeable 'slush' funds available for Coulson's new Shield to dip into.

    Mid-DS9 had CGI (I want to say season 5 or 6). Voyager, of course, had already started by that point, but I think they had both physical models and CGI models in use.
