    This is what I was thinking. There was a lot of buzz about the show and now that it aired, we'll see if the ratings stick. I'm predicting a rather sizable drop off. I think it will wind up doing okay in the ratings, and get renewed, but I will be surprised if it remains a mega hit (by today's standards anyway).

    Me thinks Peter was referring to the comments here rather than a more scientific method.

    Same for me. I don't follow the comics, so I don't want to have a show that depends on knowledge from them, or feels like a comic. If I wanted that, I'd read the comics in the first place!

    I think his point is a lot of people tuned in for the Avengers connection, but didn't like it very much.

    I suspect he's wrong, but we'll see how the ratings hold up!

    Well, FTR, I loved it. Way wittier than anything else on network TV right now. Thanks, Joss!

    I also remember an episode where a Hulk hand was used as a prop.

    On one of the episodes last night, they were talking about Doc Ock inhabiting SpiderMan's body while in the comic book store. I couldn't find anything but DC visible in the set, however.

    They are still Marvel characters. The point being that not all Marvel movies are in the same universe. Just the Avengers ones.

    I understand that. The Avengers movie is the head of the snake, so when I say the "Avengers Universe", the rest of the movies are implied.

    Also - the re-airing of the premiere has been in my guide data since at least the day after the first airing.

    My point is that because Sony and FOX own the movie rights to a subset of Marvel characters, and they use those characters as they see fit, not as Marvel Studios sees fit.

    I was a bit unsure as to liking this show until the last scene.
    the flying vette sold me.

    It seemed like a blatant rip-off of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, to me.

    Actually, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang ripped off SHIELD (which I can say, because apparently it doesn't matter which came first). :D

    Love that...

    I'm a huge fan of Joss, but from what I've read, he will only be involved with the pilot, so I don't have any idea how it's going to be going forward.

    Still, sp setup.

    His brother is the showrunner. I'm sure Joss will be influencing it all season, just not on set all of the time.
