    I can't remember the woman's accent, but the guy's was Scottish.

    I guess I figured the opening, with the meeting on the city-sized flying headquarters where the boss says she's setting up a small, compartmentalized team would have covered that... :D

    I thought that this was pretty boring. It didn't grab me at all, although it had some good scenes. If Whedon's name wasn't attached to this, I would be tempted to drop the SP right now, but since it is Whedon, I will try to stick with it and see if it improves.

    Same here. It was boring. I didn't care really about any of the characters. I hope they come up with a more compelling arc story soon. If it is just super villian of the week as the main crux of the show, it won't hold my interest. The cast doesn't seem like a good choice except for Colson.

    That's my concern. I think this show has potential, but I can easily see it becoming another "freak super villain of the week" show.

    This just in: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is crushing ratings records — so much so, in fact, that ABC has decided to air the premiere episode again!

    When the Joss Whedon superhero series premiered on Tuesday, September 24, it Hulk-smashed the competition to become both TV’s highest-rated drama debut of fall 2013 so far and the most successful new drama in four years, TV Line reports.

    Even if you weren’t one of the 11.9 million people who tuned in Tuesday night, ABC still wants to make sure you have a chance to see the show. On September 25, the network announced that it will re-air the first episode on Thursday, September 26, at 8 p.m.

    This means you should probably clear your schedule for tomorrow night, stat. Because even though Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) was killed off in the Avengers movie, he’s somehow managed to come back to life. And you have to watch if you want to find out how. Though, don’t expect everything to be revealed in the premiere episode, “Pilot.”

    It'll be interesting to see what the ratings will be for episode 2. It seems that it is getting a fairly lukewarm reception.

    If there is one thing we know about Joss Whedon, it's that his shows always have compelling story arcs. This is one thing I'm not worried about at all.

    Movies. Since Iron Man in 2008 the Marvel films have all been part of the same universe including:

    Iron Man
    Incredible Hulk
    Iron Man 2
    Captain America: The First Avenger
    The Avengers
    Iron Man 3

    and upcoming films:
    Thor: The Dark World
    Captain America: The Winter Solider
    Guardians of the Galaxy
    The Avengers: Age of Ultron
    Two untitled films set for 2016 and 2017 release

    Also don't forget the short films Marvel One-Shots.

    Sony, not Marvel, owns movie rights to Spider-Man.

    20th Century Fox owns Wolverine.

    I agree. I'll watch at least one more more but it didn't do much for me.

    They definitely talk(ed) about Battlestar Galactica, and that was on SciFi/Syfy. (not sure if it had made the lame transition then)

    Woah, major spoiler there... Root a regular character? just kidding.. (Hmm, was Dr. Claire Saunders the one Dushku always asked "did I fall asleep?"? rhetorical question)

    I never really read anything about the show, but that's what I always guessed it would be..

    BBT has only ever featured DC Comics properties on the show. Probably not at all coincidentally, DC Comics is owned by Big Bang Theory producer Warner Brothers Entertainment. There's not a chance they'd reference a Marvel property on the show.

    Care to make a wager?


    I also seem to recall Sheldon stealing Howard's Iron Man helmet, as well as references to X-men and Fantastic Four.

    You just slipped up and gave away that you're a time traveler from the future.
