Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Season 1, Episode 2: “0-8-4”

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 0-8-4

I guess I missed it last episode but how cute is it that those little gadgets are called The Dwarfs and each one is named after one of the Seven Dwarfs?

When I saw the way Coulson and Camilla moved together in the gun fight, I was pretty sure they’d slept together.  I was also suspicious of her from the start.  Too bad I was right.

I liked the scene where Ward suddenly notices that no one is drinking and at the same time Coulson is telling Camilla that Ward will have figured out what’s going on.

This was the kind of situation the team needed to actually make them a team.  They all worked together to come up with a solution to the problem rather than bickering and fighting over who’s idea was the best.  It also says a lot about the character of the team (and Ward in particular) that they were trying to save the bad guys and keep them from being sucked out of the hole in the plane.

Please don’t make Skye a baddie!  It seemed that she reluctantly replied to the message from Rising Tide.  I’m hoping that it will turn out that she’s staying in touch with them to help the team stay one step ahead.  I figure that her being a double agent is something Coulson has already anticipated though.  I think that may even be why he brought her on board.

Fury!  So cool that Samuel L. Jackson made a cameo in this episode.  I know that, in order to be successful, the show will need to distance itself a bit from The Avengers but I really hope that some of the others pop in.  Iron Man would be easy.  Anybody could be inside the suit so it wouldn’t necessarily require Robert Downey, Jr.  Since The Hulk is CGI, he wouldn’t be hard either.

Once again, Coulson gets the best lines.

Favorite Lines:

  • “Your frown will be on record.” — Coulson
  • “Ish” — Coulson
  • “If I need a gun, I’ll take one.” — May
  • “Yeah, we’re gonna have to kill the fish tank.” — Coulson
