First episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was a pretty big let down

SHIELD-cast
First episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was a pretty big let down, not much build up and just introduction of characters that I’m having trouble relating to at all, though it was nice to see Ming-Na back on the silver screen. I’m going to be bitterly disappointed if they don’t have any recognizable heroes or villains from the comics in this television series, I’d even settle for some b-listers like Sleep Walker or SuperPro or even the Amazing Slapstick.

    The show is not supposed to have many characters from the comics. They’ve talked about including B-list and unknowns but very few big names are going to show up. This is a show that’s supposed to, first and foremost, exist on it’s own. Later they’ll use it to tie some of the movies together but it needs to be a standalone success before any of that. It can’t just parasite off of the success of the other franchises or it’ll never be able to grow into anything worthwhile.

    They’ve said it would be this for the setup for a long time. Also whedon’s people always make terrible pilots, that this was mediocre is a good sign.

    Sam Rockwell expressed interest in being around as a villain as Justin Hammer(IM2).

    The fact that Coulson could be a Life Model Decoy, and if he is an AI, he could in fact be ultron for the new avengers movie if shit goes south when he learns the truth.

    Honestly the only thing that bothered me was the hover car.

    First of all, Tiki, Ming Na is coming back to the small screen, not the silver screen. The owners of Marvel character rights will not “waste” audience taste for significant Marvel characters on the show unless it draws a serious following. If they wanted to, J. August Richards’ character would be named Carl Lucas, not Mike Peterson. Remember (regardless of if you watched it) that Smallville started out with the bare minimum of required characters from the Superman continuity–Clark and his Earth parents, Lex Luthor, and one of his two love interests, Lana Lang. The rest were made up characters.… Read more »

    To be honest, I never expected it to get so far as having actual supervillains. I expected it to be something along the lines of the x-files with a little more action. They have the avengers to fight the supervillains, I think the Agents of SHIELD are more along the lines of investigation and prevention.

    I liked it. I especially liked the humor.

    I suspect that the search for whoever is behind the Caterpillar is going to be the overall arc of this season.
