I am pretty happy with this series. I'm not a huge MARVEL fan and I've never seen the Avengers or other themed movies, but it's been pretty fun to watch.

I find it pretty amusing to read some of the talk going around with the people who really dive deep into MARVEL who offer less than favorable reviews on the show as it doesn't follow the particular direction I assume most MARVEL-y things do.

You're missing out on some references by missing the movies, particularly The Avengers, but it's kind of interesting to see someone who watches the show without knowing anything else. I'd love to know what else you think about it.

And it's weird to think that people who like Marvel stuff wouldn't like the show, particularly since it's been run by the same guy who directed The Avengers, which got a lot of praise.

As a big fan of Marvel, I am enjoying this show a lot. Coulson is my favorite character, followed by Skye. I like getting little hints each week about what happened to him since the events of The Avengers. I do find FitzSimmons to be very annoying, and they were over the top annoying in last week's episode. Needless to say I consider it the worst episode of the season so far. My favorite so far is episode 3, "The Asset".

I'm hoping that there is some kind of connection or at least a nod in the next episode to what happened in Thor: The Dark World. Not gonna spoil anything for those who haven't seen it, but with all the references to the movies that the show makes I would be surprised if there isn't something.

Between last week's episode and the one that aired last night, I think Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is finally hitting its stride. While most episodes improved on the one before, there was always a feeling of disconnect in my opinion. Last night's episode really showed the aftermath of last week's developments between the characters and gave a better sense of connection. While at the same time furthering more character development and forming a mutual respect between Fitz and Ward. Plus the mystery surrounding Coulson and Skye's parents took some small steps forward.

I'm pretty excited for next week's episode as it deals with the aftermath of Thor: The Dark World.

^ I was gonna say a lot of that myself.

It does really feel like it's hitting its stride now. The only thing that would slow it down for me is if they unnecessarily delayed revealing some of these secrets about Coulson and Skye. They could easily give us more before the end of the season and still have more mysteries pop up as a result. Plus I expect by 5 or 6 more episodes we'll have firmly gotten into a much more dramatic story arc.
