Wait.

So...you don't watch the show, but you think you know what the show needs to make it better?

See, I'm just trying to clarify that point.

Also Victoria Hand made her first appearance in this weeks episode, you'd know that if you know...you actually had watched the show. :smt011

Whether or not I watched the show has nothing to do with what spin I want to put on it so obviously most of the people who commented here misinterpreted the point I was trying to make.

And what has that have to do with me making my own spin on it? Do most of you just go into troll mode before reading some of these threads or what? And for your information I don't have a TV so that's the main reason why I haven't watched it.

No Draco it's because you haven't seen the show at all.

People are calling you out for the stupidity of making a "how to make a show I've never watch
ed" thread.

I thought, from your OP, that you were trying to make the show more appealing. Presumably, appealing to you in particular.

Maybe if you watched it, you might find it sufficiently appealing to your tastes as is. But how can you know what needs to be improved/added/removed if you've never seen the show? Wouldn't you prefer an informed basis upon which to rest your ideas?

Ah.

Well, you're in luck. You see, I am seeking willing volunteers for an experimental device which broadcasts, oh, let's say "television signals" into the reptile part of the human brain. That's the part that responds to explosions and titties. You'll need to be fitted for a receiver, of course, but this is an outpatient procedure. And we'll also need to remove one or two of your less-useful organs to make room for the internal battery pack.

How about it? You up for some SCIENCE?

Of course, to watch the most recent episodes, you could always just use your computer and functional internet connection to go to the network's website and view what is available. This has the benefit of avoiding a massive, invasive biotech medical procedure.

1. There should be more nudity, but only the chicks.
2. There should be less talking
3. More punching\kicking\light bondage
3. Introduce more X-Mens characters like Artie and Maggots.
4. A very special episode : "Fisting".

Draco x wrote:All this talk about the mixed views regarding Agents Of SHIELD had me thinking what could make the show more appealing( At least from my perspective) and here is some pointers on the direction I would take the show:

1. Make the SHIELD characters more like military badasses as opposed to the NCIS/ X-Files lite characters we have. SHIELD is basically Marvel's precursor to GI JOE so why not highlight the characters in a Call Of Duty like manner to show how physically and tactically demanding their job is

2. Have characters from the comics as the main characters such as Dum Dum Dugan( Jr in this case), Victoria Hand( Who would be revealed to be a double agent down the road), Marc Spector( Who would go on to be Moon Knight down the road as well), Jessica Drew, Clay Quatermainn, Marcus Johnson( Without the stupid Nick Fury Jr. crap by the way), Misty Knight, Jimmy Woo, Elektra Natchios( Another double agent who would be working for the Hand), Wyatt Wingfoot, Jack Munroe, Dominic Fortune, Daisy Johnson and so on.

3. Have villains like Scorpio, Max Fury, Taskmaster, Ultimatum, Slaymaster, Zarran, Superia, the Serpent Society, Sin, the Yellow Claw, HAMMER, Ulik the Troll, etc appear to highlight how many great villains Marvel has to offer on the show.

4. Make each season show how vast the SHIELD organization is by showing different units and characters as it shouldn't just focus on just the few ones we've seen so far. The way I see it this could show how much influence and resources SHIELD has in the country and even the world-heck we could even bring in Abigail Brand and SWORD at some point.

5. Have other organizations like Damage Control, Heroes For Hire, MI6, the Hand and even mention characters like Blade, Daredevil, Ghost Rider, Dr. Strange and Punisher show up or be mentioned.

These are just some ideas as to how I would make the show more appealing seeing as how some of the reactions have been lukewarm thus far. Will think up more if I get the chance.


Your ideas are, for the most part, ridiculous and unfeasible in a TV show. So there's that.

1) SHIELD was NEVER Marvel's version of GI JOE. Nick Fury and SHIELD are far more like
James Bond and MI6.

2) Some of these name are nonsense pandering to basement dwelling fanboys. Some are, like Marc Spector, silly: why would they slot Moon Knight into a tv show, thereby cutting off the possibility of a MOVIE? But about the biggest pile of ridiculousness you spouted here was "Marcus Johnson, but without that Nick Fury nonsense". Yes, by all means, let's bring in a character who ONLY EXISTS TO MAKE IT SO "NICK FURY" LOOKS LIKE SAM JACKSON, and make it so he has nothing to do with Fury. Do you not see how retarded that is? You're left with a generic bland character at that point. So why use the name? To annoy the two Johnson fans out there? Give your non-Marcus-Johnson bland character a new name. I suggest "Ward".

3) SHIELD is not the Avengers. Please (and this isn't directed solely at you, Draco) stop demanding Big Name Supervillains that a) the show wont be able to do in a non-shitty CGI way, and b) SHIELD couldn't really handle anyway. "Serpent Society? Fuck that, we can't deal with that. Get Rogers on the phone. Has anyone taught him to use a phone yet?"

4) Pretty sure this one wasn't an idea of it's own, it was just an excuse to try to make suggestion 2 work when you realized no network show can support a cast of 45 agents.

5) Again, characters who appear on the show mean characters who aren't starring in movies. So, no. But I like the idea of mentioning more groups and characters. I really like an idea I heard somewhere of a Damage Control tv show. But direct appearances? Not likely.

6) For the record, don't pad your lists by listing villains twice. Scorpio IS Max Fury. :)

Strict, didn't you famously refuse to watch the Star Trek remake while still discussing it? Maybe I'm thinking of someone else.

So he has not watched the show, all the more reason for people to correct any misconceptions he may have developed my seeing any of the promo spots seen on TV.

Draco the fact that you're on the internet right now tells me that you have access to some kind of multi-media device. Even if it is your phone. These devices allow streaming of video media from several different sites. You could easily go to ABC.com and watch the show if you liked and then you'd hopefully save us from your inane coma inducing posts on how to improve a show you've never watched with ideas that would only appeal to 7 year olds.
