Good! Now they have plenty of time to get Ron Glass in on some of the action.

Now, they just need to work out the kinks so that the two characters above aren't the only ones with actual character...

No more running. I aim to misbehave.


No surprise there. Too good not to get a full season.

I've watched and enjoyed every episode, so glad it will get to run a full season. I have to agree with STORYMARK that the two characters, Phil Coulson and Melinda May, tend to be more interesting and realistic but they are more seasoned actors so maybe the others will break out into more deep stories as they gain experience.

I would like to see more of Ron Glass as the doctor with a lot of secrets. Maybe they will write him into one of their missions, where he has a few surprising skills.

I like Sleepy Hollow too, so hope FOX doesn't do a Firefly on it.

It's a great show, www.tvbythenumbers.com is reporting that "Sleepy Hollow" has been renewed.

agreed...I don't even know the character names of the science nerds...but the "girl" is impossible to understand, even with my big surround sound system on...her voice is muffled and her line deliveries...well... I can only assume she is supposed to be saying things that are somewhat humorous, but I'm not getting ANY of it...there's a lot of older fans out there (I'm 57) who have come to expect some really great casting out of a Whedon project....time for Joss to kill a couple off and trade up.

The show seems to be improving quite nicely IMO. The episode last night was pretty good. The could still do much better if they start breaking these characters out of their roles of like boyscout, science nerd, etc. Hopefully that will be coming.


Last night's episode spoilers:

Select to view spoiler:


I really wish they had let Simmons die. I like her as eye candy and all, but she's not really pulling her weight on the show. It would be especially good if she sacrificed herself and the team had to deal with that especially seeing that their cure worked and she didn't need to jump. It would be good to see the team deal with failure and would give Fitz a reason for his character to grow and become interesting.

After a couple strong episodes, I found this one to be a step back. Spoilers for the rest:

Select to view spoiler:


I also think Either Fitz or Simmons should die, as they're just too calculatedly cute, and redundant as characters. But I didn't figure they'd have the guts to do it, and was correct.

The second she jumped from the plane, my friend gasped, totally buying it. I said "Wait, I bet you 5 bucks Ward runs in, grabs a parachute and dives after her." Made 5 bucks.

Also, as that scene played out, another friend asks - "Why didn't he just use the flying car he ran right past...?"

Good question.



Next week's ep - a Thor 2 tie-in (with no cameos) directed by Jonathan Frakes.

"Don't touch Lola."

I'm guessing that Lola takes some time to get into flight mode or the altitude and speed they already at might of been outside of Lola's flight stats.

Can't have it be realistic, y'know.

Eh, it's still sloppy writing. What did happen was entirely impossible anyway.

Fully agree with you, that's why the >snork< was in there.
I really was thinking the ending was going to be different.

I like this show, but it really hasn't really grabbed me yet.
I am glad it got a full season.

Select to view spoiler:


I do wish that they had a scene at the end where Coulson asks Ward "Why didn't you use Lola?"
and he says "You told us not to touch her."

I am rethinking my opionion that Coulson is an LMD, you'd figure that would show up in a physical.
Alien tech, perhaps?

That's good. It still doesn't feel like a Joss show to me. The first episode did, but some of the characters are far too generic right now. I'm hoping in time they'll develop.

The main 'forehead' guy is too much like David boreanaz that it's distracting me.
The pilot woman is just too wooden. I don't get that kind of character.
The tech guys need work. These kinds of characters are all over TV shows presently and they're annoying; they spout babble and then flick a switch and everything is OK. Very Annoying when TV does this.
Skye is OK. I like that she has something 'else' going on but still she could easily just be eye candy, which I hope they move away from.

Coulson is the stand out character. Always interesting when he's on screen.

I'm finding the plots so so for the most part but again as with Buffy it needed some time before it was really outstanding so I hold out hope.

America loves a winner!



Fitz as a field agent ... pretty weak episode. All around, too, I hate to say. Skye's nagging Coulson about her parents, as 2 members of her team are in peril, that there'd be NO extraction for such a mission like this... and oh yeah, nothing happens to Simmons as she tries to hack a secure panel in a section she's not suppose to be in, and then... well, it seems a bit too much for my likes.

Word is the show will be undergoing a serious re-tooling either at mid-season, or for season 2 at the very latest. Ratings have continued to drop every single episode, rather than leveling off as they had hoped.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


I hope the retooling comes sooner than that...like with the next episode which is supposed to follow up on the happenings in Thor: The Dark World.

It needs it. The throw away missions are getting really old. This last episode killed all the moment they were getting from some of the stronger episodes leading into it. Even the moments that were supposed to be emotional fell flat to me.

That would have been shot weeks ago, though. Its most likely to happen for the "back 9" episodes, after the initial 13 episodes that were originally ordered, and most likely already planned out, have been made.

I hope the viewership picks up - though I think they need to move Agents to a night with less competition. Aka not Monday or Tuesday. Not sure what the break even on viewers is but, I'm sure they need more than 2.5 million viewers!

You are right about the time slot being pretty busy, but I use my TIVO to watch the show later. I wonder if they do not get viewer credit if you use a DVR to watch the show?

Networks are looking more at DVR numbers these days, with "Live + Same Day" that interests them more, with "Live + 3" also considered. From what I've read it "Live + 7" is ignored. So if you're gonna watch it delayed, make that delay as short a time as possible.

However, while Tivo might share data, it is the all-powerful (and antiquated) Nielsen system that still makes the rules. They only count DVR usage from their own subscribers.

So, anyone still watching? Last episode I saw was when they revealed how Coulson came back.
Is it worth picking back up?

I've seen all the episodes, not because I am totally captivated by it, but because I feel they should be given the benefit of the doubt and I want to at least see how they end this first season. It's a vast universe they're working in, and they've been hampered by not being able to include the major players from the movies. The first Thor tie-in episode was weak, but the last one that featured Sif was pretty good.

Three things they need to do before the season ends: explain why Skye is an 0-8-4, bring back Mike Peterson as Deathlok, and reveal the identity of The Clairvoyant (my guess is it's Victoria Hand).

I think the show has been getting better. I still really wish they'd work on finding ways to make the audience relate with the main characters. They just don't seem like people yet. Give them families, friends, goals, and dreams. You know...people stuff. Right now we have tough guy, tough girl, smart guy, smart girl, bratty girl, revived leader guy. Gotta do better than that.

There was another crossover ep that had Sif? Cool.
I knew Bill Paxton is appearing in few episodes, I guess I will try and catch up with it.

Once I found Serenity


Well they did get a second season. There is also with the internet a chance to catch an audience they would not have caught just a few years back. That is how they got me.

Serenity can only be achieved in the wilderness.
