Phil Coulson: Who is that woman?
Me: It's Quinn from UnReal! You should totally watch that. It was great.

Bobbi: She's only alone when she drinks her coffee on the train.
Me: HEY, you're not allowed to drink coffee on the DC metro trains! IT'S A TRAP!

(That really looked like a DC metro train, BTW. The establishing shots definitely were, and the car/map inside looked pretty convincing.)

The special effects are looking great this year.

Solid premiere. I like that they're not superhero-lite anymore, but I really don't want them to get into too much Flash style superhero CG battles, though. Daisy and Lincoln shooting projectiles at Lash was the low point of the episode. This show has really gotten to excel at the hand-to-hand fight choreography and spy stuff, and it should really be more of that kind of show.

For some reason, I find it kinda funny, kinda neat that they bring in William Sadler whenever they can to do a few seconds of Presidential speeches.

It feels like Chad Lindberg has made a career out of being "that IT/computer guy" on television.

Also, I love Spencer Treat Clark, especially the hair part of him, and I'm happy to have him as a recurring character.

Felt a bit frustrated with how this show settled into formula (the last 3 episodes are all but indistinguishable from each other)... But this last.

Not only did they toss out an actual science fiction story, they did it well. It might not have been the freshest concept or direction, but that episode was far and away the best episode of comic book tv I've seen this year

The episode itself was very well done (I even forgive that it's unreasonable to expect the actors to gradually lose weight), but it's a really lacking answer to the mystery of her ordeal. Simmons' traumatized and paranoid behavior doesn't really line up with the reveal that she was not alone for 5/6th of her time there (which she explicitly argued she was with Dr. Hot Psychiatrist in a previous episode) and had a cozy sex bunker away from what's hunting her, to boot. Why did she feel the need to keep Hunky Matt Damon a secret from everyone anyway? To protect Fitz's feelings? That seems really petty.

Please please please let the secret cult that sent the astronauts be Wolfram & Hart.

This season the show fully recognizes the strength of Fitz/Simmom (both the performances and their characters' storyline), and really leans into it. Quite manipulative, but damn it still totally got me.

There's a hole in my world since I caught up on this show. Watched Agent Carter to ease the withdrawal... but nothing will suffice. I need it back in my life. I need more of Coulson's raspy exposition... his superhuman ability to always Do the Right Thing... more star-crossed Fitz/Simmons drama... need more!

Damn the midseason break.

New year, new (half) season, new thread. Simple. People might get confused if the only new thread for a currently airing show is in the forum for last year.

"I don't hate you quite as much."

May is really the Ron Swanson of the team.

Sad to see them leave, but can't say I'm too excited about a whole show dedicated to Hunter and Bobbi. This show works as an ensemble, they work as a part of that ensemble. Oh well. That "spy's goodbye" scene was hilariously over the top/dramatic, though, particularly Coulson's uber serious toast.

I WAS SO AFRAID THEY WERE GONNA DIE. Are they getting a spin off? I thought that wasn't gonna happen.

Looks like ABC hasn't made a final decision on it yet, so we'll see. I'm guessing it will happen though.

Brett Dalton is killing it.

And he was SO DULL the first season. Born to be a villain, that one.

Peng

Chloe Bennet shines more and more the past two seasons as well, when she has meatier material to play. The scene when she almost chokes Fitz is such an intense mix of various emotions that it's a bit unsettling for me.

Milky Joe

Pretty outstanding finale.

Peng
05-18-2016, 03:19 PM
So good. Best finale so far. Last season's was really good too but pacing was off; this one is so focused and involving. And want to say again how Bennet has grown into the role. She has to carry a large part of these episodes and nails it.

That last conversation in space makes me favorably think of AoU's Vision/Ultron one in the forest. Great send-off for Ward/Hive/the actor.

Very sneaky out at the end with the introduction of LMDs. It allows them to not only possibly keep Brett Dalton, but hey, how about Hayley Atwell in the modern day?

can't wait for inevitable "coulson's dead!" cliffhanger followed by finding out it was an lmd

Oh shit! When the portal blew up, I thought that was it. But Fitz saved her that mother f@@ker. He done did it.

So is it just me, or are the fight scenes in this show much better and much more frequent than any of the Netflix Marvel shows?

Ming-Na Wen and Chloe Bennet kill it. Are these CGIed student doubles?

number8
12-19-2017, 03:37 PM
I feel like I mention that frequently in the Netflix show threads. I know I did in the Iron Fist thread. I think people who don't watch just don't believe it or something. Hell, many of the shootouts are way better staged than any of the gun fights in Punisher.

This show has much better production values in general than any other comic book show. Better acting, too.

Dukefrukem
12-19-2017, 03:38 PM
Dunno about the acting. It can get super campy sometimes in AoS. Especially with a lot of the 2nd tier characters.

number8
12-19-2017, 03:49 PM
The writing can be campy, but that just means the actors have more to play with and are able to show more range than the tortured stuff they give the Netflix peeps.

Iain de Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge are terrific. You're watching the season where I think they did some of their best work.

Dukefrukem
12-19-2017, 03:57 PM
Yeh those two have been my favorite dynamic through the 2+ seasons I've seen so far. And they just pulled Simmons out of that portal so she's showing some range here like we haven't seen before.

Most of the camp recently came from Ruth Negga. I was happy to see her go.
