Ah. Well, admittedly, I've been switching between this and NCIS, because I can't really get enough of cheap CGI explosions. So there may have been things I've missed.

It was a particularly silly line from SHIELD last night when tough guy SHIELD agent Fitch Abercrombie (I dunno his character's name still at this point, so..) got all dramatic with Skye about his "defining moment".

Did you age 50 years since you've been gone? :P

Why do you watch NCIS?

That moment being his "defining moment" explains a lot about the character. :P

It didn't really make sense because his defining moment was "learning to protect himself and brother because his other brother would beat their asses over a birthday cake," but presumably that took a lot longer than a moment.

I thought the moment he meant was the exact moment he could taste the mix of birthday and blood in his own mouth after his brother punched him.

None of that explains why it was his defining moment as an agent... :smt017

Ward is such a terrible, terrible character played by an actor who has more in common with a cardboard box than a live person! :x

I started watching it at work. There are long stretches of time when it's just mind-numbingly dull, and the boss literally doesn't care if I turn on the TV. After watching it for a while, I realized two things: Cote de Pablo is hot, and Michael Weatherly is that dude from Dark Angel who fucked Jessica Alba back when she had enough booty to make it a worthwhile endeavor.

But since Cote de Pablo left the show, it's just not calling to me anymore. It remains to be seen if they hire a new chick who is hot enough to keep me watching.

I dunno if he's a terrible character. The writing for the character may be terrible, or at least lackluster, but I think just about any character can be saved or damned in the writing, you know? I like the concept of James Bond Jr., but so far the execution hasn't been interesting.

I think the problem with this show is the lack of a truly credible threat of a recurring antagonist...needs a villain who isn't just another guy with generic goons and could be perceived as capable of kicking the teams asses....in other words the show needs its own Boba Fett.

Off the top of my head the Taskmaster seems doable in that regard. Seriously doubt we'll be seeing him in movies any time soon and cool enough to gain a cult following.

Welcome to my way of thinking since episode 1 of the show. :P

How often do shows have that right from the beginning though? A lot of shows, including Whedon's best show, Buffy, do the villain of the week thing for like the whole first season. Person of Interest did this too. Over time, they build big villains.
