Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Premiere

To quote my friend, Toga, EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!  Pretty much my feelings exactly.

Whedon!  So great to have Joss back on TV.  It’s been great seeing his success on the big screen but this is where he shines.

Coulson!  He’s alive!  There’s a mystery there.  I don’t think he was really in Tahiti.  The way he kept saying “It’s a magical place.” seems like something that was planted in his mind.  What can he never know?

Gunn and Book!  So great to see J. August Richards and Ron Glass, Whedonverse alums.  I was hoping Mike would stick around but I understand this show isn’t about the “superheroes.”

Fitz-Simmons are my favorite characters (after Coulson) so far.  They’re like twins with their own language.  They talked so fast, I couldn’t catch most of their dialogue but it all sounded like it should be in my favorite lines.

I’m undecided about Ward.  He was much more enjoyable when he was under the truth serum.  Melinda May is badass.  I want to know what happened to make her not want to be in the field anymore.  Right now, I could take or leave Skye.

Lola flies!!!

This was a pretty kick-ass pilot.  Set up all the characters.  A storyline that showed off the team’s strengths.  Cool gadgets.  Great dialogue.  Left some mystery to bring me back for more.

I squee’d when I saw the Mutant Enemy logo at the end but the stupid announcer was talking over the Grr! Arrgh!

 

Favorite Line:

  • “Sorry.  That corner was really dark and I couldn’t help myself.” — Coulson
  • “This is where they make the red tape, isn’t it?” — Coulson
  • “Gramzy?” — Ward
