    Maybe because he actually watched Dollhouse and saw what a limited range Dushku has.

    I enjoyed it very much. I will definitely follow it thru season one and hope for a season two.

    Duh of course. I even specifically recognized him from Angel, spaced on it when posting.

    He was looking older than I expected, but that may have partly been the makeup to show the distress his body was in because of the "centipede"

    I thought she looked like Eliza too but the one thing I didn't want from this series was more of the Joss Whedon Welfare Project where he keeps employing the same people over and over. Oh, well. Looks like I'll just have to deal with it.

    I wasn't a comic book guy when I was growing up so I don't know anything about S.H.I.E.L.D. I liked it and look forward to the next episode.

    What's the back story on Melinda May? Is she supposed to be a badass? Feel free to spoilerize. Somebody is sure to complain.

    I laughed when Skye was in her van, broadcasting how bad she was, then the door opens and it's the S.H.I.E.L.D. people. And that will be the last time I ever spell SHIELD with all the periods.

    You know as much as we do. She's original to the TV show.

    The Goliath Serum's only cure was a gunshot through the head as well. :)

    There are probably a hundred different explanations they could use that would warrant the "He can never know" reference.

    It'd be cool if they used the alien technology to heal Coulson, but because of that he becomes the Big Bad for the season. Or whatever the reason, I think Coulson would make a good Big Bad.

    Well it wasn't a gunshot so much as an "antidote delivery" right?

    Save the cheerleader, save the world?

    So, not being versed in this mythology, are the agents good or bad? Does everyone in the organization have powers that will be revealed as we go along?

    SHIELD are the good guys.
    I don't believe anyone will have powers. That's the whole point of the series.

    They are the good guys and, no, not all of SHIELD has powers.

    They might as well have super powers with all the technology they are sporting.

    I mean, Iron Man doesn't have super powers either. Just an awesome suit.

    Haven't seen this yet, but S.H.I.E.L.D is not intrinsically a super-hero organization. It's mostly made up from normal humans.

    I find it interesting that although this show was developed and the pilot shot before the whole NSA thing blew up, it very much reflects that reality.

    Which means either Joss Whedon can see the future, or the whole NSA thing didn't happen in a vacuum. U decide!

    Yeah, I was good until the very end. What, they couldn't come up with something original and had to resort to stealing a scene from BTTF? :rolleyes:

    Overall, I liked it and will continue to watch, but that ending scene was a little over the top for me.

    I liked it. Hopefully now that the pilot is out of the way where they have to introduce every character the story writing will hold its own.

    The two science nerds on the team reminded me of the Wonder Twins. :)

    I see Union Station on screen fairly often. There was an extended sequence there in the premier episode of season 2 of Ray Donovan.

    And that airplane. Looks like a C-17 with an extra wing and 2 more engines on the back. Could that really fly?
    I'm sure aerodynamic reality isn't all that important in comic books. :p
