The smart thing would be to have cameo's from those associated with the movie franchise. It's about the surest way to guarantee to keep your show on the air longer than normal. Yes, you're gonna have to have a quality product, but having cameo's will bring in eyes that normally wouldn't want to watch this.

Pilot




Big fan of Joss Whedon and everything he has done up till now. But my expectations for this one was tempered because no matter how hard you try, no matter how great the writing is, this is going to be a steep, up hill battle without any 'name' superheroes and actors to play them. What made The Avengers such a joy to watch was the culmination of all the stand alone films coming together and merging all the A-List Actors in one film. It was unique and exciting. You see how big that climb is now?

Loved the dialogue in the Pilot. Classic Whedon. But the episode itself took too long to get off the ground. I get that we have to go through the explanation of how Coulson "survived" and all that other stuff. The episode was just okay for me. Nothing spectacular. Even though Joss won't be writing or directing anymore episodes for the series (for now), I am still going to give this a few more episodes to see if they can come up with some decent Superheroes that can carry the series. It was kinda cool to see some Whedon vets in this one: J. August Richards and Ron Glass.

This isn't the show that I signed up for when it was first announced. So, we are two episodes in and all we have to show for it is one half-baked "superhero". This episode was lame. A team that consist entirely of bratty, petulant kids that like to do nothing but whine. I get that this is more or less a team-building episode to see how they can come together and work out of dicey situation. It doesn't cover up the fact that this was a very underwhelming episode about and 'alien' artifact. The only interesting thing was the final shot where SHIELD may have just allowed a mole inside their organization. I will give the show one more episode to right itself, otherwise I'm bailing.

I mean, I know I would, but surprised you might.

It's just not doing anything for me at all and it was the one thing I was worried about before its debut. Think about it, how many legit. big name marvel characters are going to be featured on the show? If it's a name character, they will want to have them in a big movie with potential crossover appeal. That means they will want a 'name' actor to play it and having them make their debut on a TV series kind of lessen their impact. I could be totally wrong here, but that's how I see it. I think the bulk of the 'superheroes' that will eventually pop up on the series are going to be created specifically for the show and not have any ties to the Marvel Universe. And I think the heroes will be lame, watered down versions of popular characters at that.

Prove me wrong ABC!!

The Asset



The Asset as a superhero episode is a failure. Really not surprised at all that yet again, no superheroes to be found here. But as an espionage episode, it's pretty decent. It's not the best, but it's entertaining enough to keep me engage, even if the objective is basically to retrieve technology from the Big Bad Villain. I will give this another episode to see what it can do. If I can just reset my mind about what this series really is, I think it could be good. But the knowledge of who and what populates the Marvel Universe, it's hard not to expect to see characters like Hulk and Captain America....or some of the lesser tier characters. But to be fair, they did set up a Supervillain with the birth of Graviton when Franklin Hall is engulf by the tech that SHIELD was after. So, there is definitely hope on the horizon for the series.

Eye Spy




This episode felt more like a Joss Whedon episode than the actual Pilot episode that he wrote and directed (minus the witty dialogue). Even though this one has nothing in common with Dollhouse, it kinda felt like it could have come directly from that series and that is a good thing. Whenever you put a character in a life or death situation, especially with a kill switch in someone's head as Agent Akela Amador (Pascale Armand). Nice little twist at the end where even I was expecting to find out who the handler was. Turns out....he himself was just another pawn and promptly had his kill switch activated. This is by far the best episode yet for the series and if they can continue more along this path, I will stay on board with the show.
