AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Spoiler Thread
Haven't done one of these for awhile, but I just finished watching last night's ep, and WOW.

This one and the previous episode were good, and has rescued the show from being dropped. Still not quite there yet.
Meanwhile, Almost Human
started off well and has been getting better. Real science fiction done well!

The show has had problems getting started, but it's definitely improving. I just hope the guy caught in the explosion lived. We didn't see him in the previews for the next episode but there could be other reasons for that. Glad we're getting the second half of the season though. I think that if given time this could be a good 5 or so season series. I also like the slow build-up of AIM and the tie in to the second Thor movie.
Almost Human is on Fox so I'm not watching it. I think Shield has a better chance of lasting longer.

I'm pretty sure that Mike was the one Skye told, "Don't touch Lola," in the trailer.

Wasn't that May? And I hope Mike is still alive, he's a great character.

Where are the mutants? This is supposed to be the Marvel universe, so shouldn't every-other person be a mutant?

Also, if you're tempted to download the Marvel Puzzle Quest game, don't. It's a scam, being investigated as we speak.

Nope, the X-men movies are an entirely different continuity, and as long as 20th Century Fox has the rights, no other Marvel adaptation can even use the "M" word.

I was wondering about that. I thought the Disney deal worked around that, or obliterated it with a death star full of lawyers. Wonder how that's going to affect their four new series with Netflix.

Well none of the characters are mutants so I'm not sure how much it will affect things. There hasn't been any magic in SHIELD either, just bits of alien technology and scientific accidents.

I thought Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch were in Avengers 2. Maybe they won't be called mutants and called "natural born metahumans" instead. Hmmm they should work that until they get a nice acronym from it.

it's my favorite show on TV.
