    • “black-ish,”
    • “Dancing with the Stars,”
    • “Fresh Off the Boat,”
    • “The Goldbergs,”

    The S.H.I.E.L.D super hero show with no real SHIELD agents or super heroes on it.

    The show reminds me of watching the Spurs when Popovich rests Duncan, Parker, and Ginobli.

    That's the thing. People expected to see The Hulk or Hawkeye every week. The show is about what happens "behind the scenes". They're spies for chrissakes.

    The show sucked the first season, but they have done a complete 180 IMO. Now we got the Inhumans, Mr. Hyde, all that good shit.

    When was this - I bailed early last season when she cut her hair and they couldn't even get Maria Hill on the show?? It seemed much ado about nothing - when it came to the MCU.

    Do they use actual hero names like Rage, Night Thrasher etc?? They can't seem to clear the rights to use any substantial Marvel heroes. I just ran out of patience on all levels.

    What's "Secrete' Warriors" in their universe - some French stealth hero sect? I HOPE I'm wrong, and it's improved but for two seasons - I had alot of trouble getting through a single episode with all their rights hamstrings Marvel blocked them from using.

    The thing is, Marvel WANTS you to think Cap or Iron Man might show up because - that's the underpinnings. It keeps people tuning in - just in case.

    INHUMANS -- how did they portray Black Bolt or Gorgon or Triton?? Do they use the comic designs??? I can't see them going all out on that with a TV budget.

    I love Mr. Hyde - how did THAT come out?? I wish they used him in a Masters of Evil for the Avengers films - but they went with tedious solo Ultron.

    I get that it's supposed to be about the agency itself. But an occasional appearance from an actual super hero would be cool too. Not too much, just here and there. In the first season Samuel L Jackson had a cameo and I think it left viewers with the expectation there would be more of that going forward. But it hasn't worked out that way.

    Wow, that's bizarre characters to throw together. Deathlok is white-guilted into a black guy now too??? Blacklok or Deathblack.

    Those characters never did anything for me - there was only so many comics you could read, and you had to draw the line.

    I know the WHITE Deathlok-Michael Collins, Speedball was in New Warriors, and Quake is sort of new, but the others are a mystery to me.

    Silly black bolt and the Royal family won't show up until the inhumans movie comes out in phase 4. This show is setting up that whole movie and it's back story

    OOoohh I agree! Joss Whedon fucking runs that show techically and there's no reason you can't get the occasional Steve Rogers or Clint Barton or Bucky Barnes or Sam Wilson cameo - just to FEEL like an on oging Marvel Universe.

    What's the big fucking deal - movie star vanity and ego???

    I can't see "Modern Family" lasting beyond next season, the kids have outgrown the premise and it's getting more labored all the time to keep them in the picture.
