    SHIELD seems to bring out the toxic hatred, yes.

    I'd love to see some of the agents in A2. That'd be really neat.

    That's what's annoying. The no-nonsense attitude isn't believable. It's too hard, too over the top. The whole badass thing is pushed too far. I mean, I'd like to see her come against the black widow. When May was fighting the ghost guy, I was rooting for him.

    I thought they explained her attitude pretty well. She was more bubbly like Skye up until the cavalry incident. After that, she closed off everyone and was more distant.

    I actually like all the characters on the show, I'd love for FitzSimmons to show up in A2 maybe make some silly gadget that like falls apart when they're demonstrating it to the team because they're so awestruck. :D

    LMAO.

    I'll just say that I never WANTED Agents of SHIELD to suck the way that it has, but well, I guess Marvel was due up for a turd sooner or later.

    It's too much of a sort of archetype to be believable for me. I see a forced badass, not a damaged badass.

    realistically, SHIELD would be full of [email protected]. i mean what makes these folks more qualified than civilians or law enforcement?

    Seriously. When I watch a show like Strike Back, I think to myself, if I'm ever being held hostage by international terrorists, I want THESE guys to come rescue me. But the agents of SHIELD? Pfft, I'll take my chances on my own. Getting rescued by those hacks would be an embarrassment.

    Except that actual intelligence agencies don't just have "badasses" working for them and to claim that they do is just incorrect. Are there badasses, absolutely. But there's also scientists, tech guys, people who actually listen to chatter and gather intelligence, translators, psychologists, and the support people who work back at the offices in the US. there's a diverse group of people who work in these agencies with a wide variety of skill sets. Not everyone who works at the CIA is Jack Bauer or Black Widow for example, some of them are more like Q from James Bond or even Fitz and Simmons.

    I've enjoyed AOS. It's not Whedon's usual fair, he's had to tone things down as it's more of a family drama, still we've seen two sets of characters having sex on the show, so it's not exactly a kiddie show. They've also introduced some other characters from the larger Marvel Universe, that wouldn't see the light of day in the movies.

    That's true. The problem with SHIELD though is that they don't come off all that smart either.

    Sex occurs in everything these days. It's hardly an adult thing any more

    How it really is and how it's perceived by a large audience are not necessarily the same thing.

    I definitely don't want AOS to suck but it does at least half the time. Even its best episodes have ridiculous crap in them. Those of us who are fans of it sometimes have to just roll our eyes and pass over glaringly bad writing in order to enjoy it.

    When I watch AOS I feel like the mother of an ugly baby. I know I'm supposed to love it but damn if I can look it in the face without wincing. The only hope is that it's a Neville Longbottom that will blossom into a hottie in its second season. Sadly it looks more like a Ron Weasley, doomed to grow even homelier as it ages.

    I agree. When I read the character descriptions before the season I was certain that FitzSimmons with their cutesy prefab "shipper" nickname would be my least-favorite characters. I've been surprised at how much I like the Science Twins. They have just the right amount of geeky quirkiness most of the time. There have been some bad moments with them due to bad writing but overall they work.

    Xeno I don't think it's as bad as you make it out to be. At this point you're just going into the show looking for the mistakes instead of enjoying it.

    Well, Ron Weasley got married to Emma "Ms. beautiful and intelligent" Watson, so I'd say that he's doing pretty well for himself.

    I dunno, I can't really find fault with most of xeno's gripes. While I'm still watching and kinda enjoy the show despite it's glaring flaws, I'd rather enjoy the show because, well, it's a fantastic show.
