    So we move along on what Skye's motivation is. Interesting.

    And we get to see Extremis and experimentation with same again.

    Hopefully this series is hitting it's stride. Hopefully.

    I liked this episode and last weeks. I hope they can keep it up.

    The actors are starting to mesh better and the stories are getting better. First seasons can be tough even for good shows....case in point Star Trek The Next Generation, I can not watch most of the first season anymore.

    Definitely has gotten better. Poor Scorch....

    I wonder if her BF will be an issue later on. he has a beard so he could be evil.

    Is that the whole deal with Skye? if so, is the Coulson thing the only outstanding mystery?

    I thought the repeated references to the floral dresses worn by Evil Manipulating Woman were anvils to the viewer... though what that means, I ain't sure...

    Floral dresses are a sign of a soulless *****? The Floral patterns emit some sexual lure that renders men helpless and malleable? (Hell, most guys are extremely malleable and compliant when an attractive woman pays attention to them..)

    Did you miss the part where her parents identities are so top secret that they were redacted by Shield?

    Also, Melinda May's backstory needs to be told.

    I'm calling it now: Skye's parents, Coulson and May.

    As a parent, the post-sex scene with Skye and her boyfriend was very disappointing to me. It was completely gratuitous, not to mention the acting during that scene was horrendous. I was hoping this series would be safe to watch with young teens/tweens. Guess maybe not. Not sure how this episode rated TV-PG. I guess nearly naked women are just the norm these days.

    That aside, I think this was the weakest episode so far. Not sure why but it just didn't keep my attention like the other episodes did. Maybe it was the acting as a whole - didn't think the Scorch guy was very good and the villains were not very interesting.

    I was angry at the scene of Skye in her underwear, because the local affiliate covered it up with a lower-thirds promo for their third-place 11 o'clock news.

    I guess it's a good thing for your kids that there's no beach in Omaha.

    It's not just the scant clothing. It's the sexual context in a 7:00 show targeted at family viewers. So why wasn't the program rated TV14? Why does the TV14 rating even exist?

    And by the way, Skye is not really even hot enough to pull off that clothing.

    I spent far too much time (okay, a few seconds) trying to figure out the WWII/Normandy Invasion reference before I thought to check where Loach is from.

    Personally, I'd be more worried about kids watching the scene of the doctor being engulfed in flames than anything else in this episode, although this probably isn't a good place for that debate.

    Did I see correctly that the boyfriend uploaded a file with an .mp4 extension into the Austin traffic light system?

    I really thought they were about to give us Sunfire, that would have been an interesting dip into the Marvel well, and I'm kind of disappointed they didn't go that way.

    They probably can't...he's an X-Men character, and thus outside Marvel's control for movies/TV.

    Yup, I noticed that, too. And just now I noticed that it is "Playable" as well. :D Also notice that it has nice context checking to see if the power grid is up before it executes, and if the power grid is down, it cleverly powers up the grid first. :cool:

    BTW, Coulson should have jumped out of his car and chased the guy on foot. If there was really gridlock, it should not be that hard.

    He's only ancillarily an X-men character, isn't he? Sure he was with the team briefly, but he was in Sub-Mariner and Iron Man, too.

    How broadly is the license to Sony written? Anybody who was ever an X-man is licensed away?

    He's a mutant, he was created in the X-Men comic, he was a member of the team, and he has been associated with them for over 40 years despite the occasional guest appearances elsewhere. So I'd guess he wouldn't even be considered a borderline case.

    If I'm not mistaken, EVERYBODY in the Marvel Universe is a mutant now. Bruce Banner became the Hulk because the gamma radiation reacted with his mutation. Spider-Man became Spider-man because the radioactive spider reacted with his mutation.

    I get your bigger point, though. I guess I just never really associated him with X-men that strongly, but I do know that Roy Thomas created him in the X-Men. Wolverine was created in the Hulk, though. ;)
