You think CBS will allow a show on their network to mention a show on ABC?
Right. I think that BBT mostly references DC Comics properties, not Marvel.
We know Sheldon won't have good things to say about it. [/sarcasm]
CBS couldn't possibly stop them from discussing it. It is too nerdy.
Yes. That is what I was thinking of when the car took off. So, BTTF had a flying car in it. So did the Jetsons.
This was honest to the original SHIELD. Doesn't matter if it was done in another movie since. It is part of the story, you do it.
In other words, radio.
I chose to look at is as an homage, not a ripoff.
The one who was amazing on Dollhouse was the guy who played Victor. That dude was a fricken chameleon. I'm also a huge Amy Acker fan. Surely, Joss could have found a spot for one of them on this show ...
Overall, I enjoyed the pilot. It didn't suck me in the way Firefly did, but it was a fun ride. Not digging the Wonder Twins at all. Love Ming Na's character! The Eliza Dushku chick is hot!
Acker was promoted to regular on Person of Interest this season so I'm going to guess her availability is limited.
I don't watch that show, but good for her!
I enjoyed the episode. It was, perhaps, not as strong as I was hoping for, but still very enjoyable. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it will improve (though even if it doesn't, I'll still watch).
Felicia Day then.
Being a regular on a show on another network didn't prevent them from getting Cobie Smulders to appear in the pilot.
Dichen Lachman needs to be in this
The dialogue made me smile - it really was the only reason I ever watch Whedon shows.
Loved the response from Skye on the cosplay comment: What???! I would ... it was just one time.
But Cobie Smulders already has a well-established role in the Marvel/SHIELD universe, which I'm sure Marvel could leverage somewhat, especially since her show on that other network is ending. Acker does not.
Plus she is planned on for the future Marvel movies.
That makes it more likely that ABC would want Cobie to appear in the show but it wouldn't have much bearing on CBS letting her appear on another network. Where her leverage with CBS existed is that they needed the cast to sign another contract for the final season of HIMYM and she probably stipulated that she wouldn't reup without the ability to guest star on SHIELD.
And this way they didn't have to pay Samuel L. Jackson.
I doubt CBS had any ability to stop her, as long as her SHIELD work didn't interfere with her HIMYM work. And since her appearance here could easily have been shot on a Sunday morning, I doubt there was ever an issue.
I'd love to see Cobie join the cast permanently once HIMYM is over. She's pretty smokin' in that SHIELD uniform!
I said limited availability as opposed to no availability.
While we don't know how often Smulders will appear in SHIELD (or if she has any scenes for the rest of the season), logistically, it's probably a lot easier for her to slip away for a morning or afternoon from a 30 minute show shot on the Fox lot over to (I'm guessing) the Disney Studios in Burbank then it would be for Acker to have a long enough break to fly in from New York where the 60 minute Person of Interest is shot.
