not the best first episode
in fact it was pretty bad

I did like the comic booky feel of the special effects, and I have hopes that it can get better, but overall I really don't like any of the characters

yup

Other than Coulson, who was trying too hard sometimes, the cast is forgettable. Hopefully they never invade any of the movies, not that I really care that much.

I enjoyed it. It wasn't the epic premiere that I was hoping for but it's got me wanting to watch a few more episodes.

The techno gal reminded me of Jennifer Garner though, think it may be the lips :smt102

I don't get why Skye felt the need to go all 'flirty' showing her cleavage whilst the other dude was on truth serum, that seemed to just be added in there :S

I'm going to give it a C+ 8)

The cleavage bit was to grab back the attention of a large slice of the target demographic after their collection minds had started to wander from the first half of the show. I didn't even find her interesting enough to have bothered considering whether she was attractive or not at that point, and it worked. As much as I hate to admit it, I literally felt my attention re-focus for a split second.

That trick is tried and true. :oops:

When I saw the jet all I could think was, "that would make a great action figure playset as long as the red car fit in the back."

I thought the flying car looked Bedknobs'n'Broomsticks-level in terms of the effects....I guess it's excusable on a network show...

Thats the thing.. I dont know if it is excusable. I have seen better effects than that on Once Upon A Time and thats an ABC show too!

Its a minor nitpick for me though.

Here's something I don't understand.
Angry Michael was in the train station tossing the gang-bangers around like ragdolls when one of them comes up behind him and smashes a metal pole/club/whateveer directly down on Michael's head which obviously does nothing to Michael ass he is (near?) invulnerable.
Yet a minute later the male SHIELD agent kicks Michael in the back of his leg forcing him to his knees. Then gets Michael in a headlock which somehow subdues him. How would any of that affect an invulnerable man ? Why didn't Michael just reach up and rip off the agents arms ?

Am I incorrectly remembering this, or did I miss a scene or some prior dialogue explaining how this would work ? :smt017

It wasn’t a great first episode but I liked it. It had some fun moments, really liked Coulson popping out of the shadow. :-D

I'm just spitballing here, but I suppose that even nigh-invulnerable needs blood to the brain, and as for kicking the back of the leg, that's just mechanical. Anyone could fall for that.

And then of course generic looking Shield guy gets his ass kicked.

I liked this enough to check out episode two. That's about all. I have many of the same problems with it that everyone else seems to.

But...I think it would be nice to include some of the lesser Marvel heroes/villains in the series. Maybe Snipes needs money enough after his little vacation to reprise his role as Blade for this...

And I can't help thinking that a heavily altered version of Elektra: Assassin might be pretty good for this, sans Garner, considering it was all about Elektra messing with Shield.

Hell, maybe Daredevil could show up, again sans Batfleck, now that they've got the rights back, or the Punisher.

What? OUAT has some of the worst effects ever. Didn't they once add a CGI deer to an episode for no reason? :lol:

So in the rest of the season, we better see a flying suit and a needle gun. This will make it truly a SHIELD series.

I wonder how long until we see a Kree Sentry.

Or any of the Super Agents.
