Whoever Skye's dad turns out to be, this episode made him a very ....not relatable but at least understandable person.

and I for one am rooting for the day he gets his target alone and kills him as slowly and painfully as he deserves.

Personally I figure Ward just dumped the bodies of the bodyguards into the newly uncovered well.

It would be the smartest course of action.

No Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this week. They are doing an extended Dancing with the Stars (covering both Monday and Tuesday evenings). :(

I'm pulling for Sadie Robertson, but I don't think she will pull it off.

The smart money is on Alfonso Ribeiro if he can overcome his injuries; else it will be Bethany Mota.

Gonna have to admit it... I put Season 1 of AoS on my Netflix queue, watched two episodes, and sent the disk back. Disk 2 will not be on my list.

don't judge this show by the first season, which sucked badly at times... grind through the shows as a payment of what glory will come later, and at your acceptance within geekdom as you go to all Marvel movies uber prepared with background info! ;)

The whole first season for me was worth it to see Coulson's breakdown on the doorstep of a secret base. "This HAS to mean something! It HAS to matter!" Sure, a lot of the characters are a little over-the-top super-spy schlock and sure, the first couple episodes were snoozers, but seeing Coulson suddenly lose it and become an everyman from time to time, especially in that scene makes it worth it for me.

Coulson is why I've always Made Mine Marvel (nuff said). Because Marvel is about regular people first, super second. What would happen if you took a real life nerd, age 15, with all the awkwardness and insecurity of adolesence coupled with the trauma of a broken childhood, and suddenly gave him the power to run up walls, leap rooftop to rooftop and throw cars? Well of COURSE he'd try to cash in on his powers and act like a brat! That is, until something terrible happened.

Coulson knows that with great power comes great responsibility. Coulson makes tough calls. Coulson doesn't always have the right answer. And yet, somehow, he's the guy that took Loki's spear to the chest and lived; he's the guy who died so that the Avengers could live, and he's the guy that has to carry around ALL of this on his shoulders.

Not once in a while. All the time.

Yeah, once these things start becoming a factor in the show it goes from being a cute little time filler to an interesting play on what it takes to be a normal guy in a world where aliens and super-soldiers duke it out on the streets of NYC.

There's only so much character you can show, episode to episode on TV, as opposed to a 2 hour movie. For what you CAN get out of a show, I'd say Coulson is top of the line. That's my CP anyway.

Actually, he hasn't. AoS is one of those shows that you have to get through at least the first half of the season before it truely starts to get good.

The first half of the first season was stuck in low gear because of the pending release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. There were things in the movie that would have repercussions on the show and the producers didn't want to get too far ahead of themselves.
Once the movie was out the show began to pick up steam and became what most of us hoped it would be.

Give it another shot. Reading a plot synopsis of the first 8 or so episodes may be worthwhile along with just skipping them.


Have to chime in with most of the others, you're missing out Kirth. Big time. End of season 1 and all of season 2 so far has been phenomenal!

There are a couple of sort-of lynchpin episodes in Season 1, but otherwise, most of it can be skipped in favor of picking up at the beginning of the tie-in to CA:TWS. This season has been really good so far. I'm looking forward to tonight's episode.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Would I be punished too badly for admitting that I enjoyed the first half of the first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?


Nah. It was perfectly WATCHABLE, and I got some enjoyment from it too (otherwise I wouldn't have continued watching).

It just wasn't anything I would call GOOD.

Shadow Lodge

It wasn't great, but it kept me watching, and did have some very good moments. But once the HYDRA hit the fan, it became pretty awesome.

Sovereign Court

Kirth, try again. Endure the first few episodes. It gets infinitely better after that.

Dark Archive

Tonight's episode is called "...Ye Who Enter Here."

It's the mid season "finale." (Sigh, what media pin head thought that up.)

I'll bet 100 shares of Marvel stock that the city is Attilan or the remnants of it that were not transported to the Blue Area of the Moon.

Skye (who I am meh about) and her father (who rocks) are sure to play key parts in the story arc.

Also the moment it was revealed that Dr. Daniel Whitehall killed Kyle MacLachlan wife, I realized what MacLachlan meant by being "reunited" with his family. By season's real end MacLachlan will have his wife's organs back and in himself.

Pity I like Whitehall.

tonight's show was solid Marvel beauty... gawd I love the Koenig LMDs... (oh, and what happens to humans when they are "Ye Who Enter Here"? hope buddy isn't a goner! :) )


was it the midseason finale? I thought that was next week?

Dark Archive

It's next week, there was no episode last week hence the delay.

Episode was solid!

Sovereign Court

Pathfinder Pawns Subscriber

I didn't delete it... I will watch it again... solid gold!

Koenig really likes his lanyards :D

The Exchange

Episode was O.K, though not nearly as good as the previous one. Somehow it seemed like the pacing was a bit off and despite a ton of stuff happening, I felt like the plot was meandering. Some good FitzSimmons stuff though.

Am I the only one who feels SHIELD are being exceptionally dumb by sending a person with basically no environmental protection into an unknown alien ruin? I am seriously, what are the odds of emerging alive out of that one? Especially if you are a good hearted minor character?

He's gonna live. He's too cool to die.

Not at all. I enjoyed it and I kept watching it. Most of the episodes were ok, but a couple of them were good. But for someone coming fresh into watching the series, the first half-ish of season 1 are almost entirely skippable (especially if they read the synopses).

Not to mention, if ...

-- It has been sealed for hundreds of years.
-- Most of the other entrances are underwater.

Why didn't he at least have air.

Because he was sent down to find the dwarves and repair them, and they'd already returned some basic information before they went out, including the fact that there wasn't any water.

That doesn't mean that uncirculated air would still be breathable.

Imma go out on a limb and assume they tested for that too.

It had a lot of balls in the air in the form of different plotlines, none of which were really resolved. Its pretty much part 1 of a 2 part episode.

random notes:

Wow...Skye did much better than I expected at combat, holding her own against 33. I guess May really has been drilling her.

I love that a week later, even the news is like "Yeah...the senator probably didn't kill himself" Because honestly my first thought was "who the hell will believe that".

I chalk it up to TV storytelling magic. Cut out the boring, mundane details and talk about the important stuff.

Question:

Do you think that the MCU is combining the "Mr Hyde" the Inhumans storylines?

The song that was playing in Skye's dream (Bicycle Built for Two) was does leave "Daisy, Daisy" ringing in the ear.

Dark Archive

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Yeah, I think that music box is the final nail in the coffin. If he's not Mister Hyde, then they're playing some serious bait-n-switch.


Mister Hyde? The old villain?

From the Marvel (comics) wiki: "At some point Hyde fathered a daughter, Daisy Johnson, who became a member of S.H.I.E.L.D.; her mother was Kim Johnson, apparently a prostitute with whom [Hyde] regularly had 'business'. The girl was put up for adoption after birth, subsequently manifesting superpowers due to Zabo's mutated genetic code being passed on to her."

We know that "mutants" cannot exist in the MCU (due to legal reasons).

This is why it looks like they are making Mr Hyde an Inhuman.


Hyde isn't a mutant technically, at least not in the same sense as Wolverine. He was born normal and only through experimentation was his genetics messed up.

I don't think he needs to be an inhuman, although it's likely his wife was.
