I hate cliff-hangers. I'm not good at waiting. Still, no choice on this.

SO stoked to have a very Whedon 1/2 season cliff-hanger. Looking forward to January!

I've been watching, and as much as I enjoy each character on their own, I'm not feeling the team together. I guess neither are they yet, but it's building onscreen so hopefully it will build in me too.

I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.

I must confess, I haven't seen a single one of the Avengers movies - not any of the Ironmans, not Thor or any of the Hulks or even Captain America. It wasn't intentional; I MEANT to go see them. But it's difficult for me to commit to that much time in one block (not only factoring the running time of the movie but also the time getting there, the time leaving... blah blah blah). However, I love Joss and had an idea about Coulson's background, so I checked out "Agents of Shield", and I enjoyed it. I didn't LOVE it - I'm not finding myself caring about any of the characters other than Coulson and May (played by the always awesome Ming-Na Wen, who can just STAND with attitude!). But that just may take time. I like the mystery they've developed around Coulson and how he's changed since he 'died'.

I am loving it, I have enjoyed Coulson's character since his first appearance in Marvel movies. Joss keeps the great dry/funny edge. I also stay about a week behind on my DVR.
Looking forward to finding out what happened but I like the development of all the team.

Are y'all seeing the excitement about the crossover episode during sweeps week with Thor? I haven't actually read the articles yet, but they look shiny!

We're enjoying the show at my house too! I love the campy vibe and my husband says the hacker reminds him of Eliza Dushku. We also keep seeing moments where the female scientist looks uncannily like Jennifer Garner in Alias - and then the camera will shift angles and we'll wonder how we thought that. Ming-Na Wen is always wonderful (and believable in her stunt work). I'm sure they'll delay the Coulson bit for more exposition of the chactacters. I feel like the show is only now beginning to hit a stride (i think they began to hit it in the episode with the camera in the eye - kind of espionage-ish and perfectly suited for the non-super-hero, heros.) I'm enjoying it!

I kind of hope they will delay the Coulson answer. Suspense is really good and I love the way they are spending time building each team member's back story and character.

I have some friends that are not interested in the other characters. All they want is information related to the Avengers movie - Coulson's story and "Why aren't there any super heroes?" type stuff. They just don't get that Coulson's team is super as an aggregate of folks that are special but not magical. Although Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May/The Cavalry is almost super.

And Ron Glass as a doctor/scientist was shiny! I look forward to seeing more of him.

Thanks to SlingBox I am able to watch it from here. I am thoroughly enjoying it. I can totally see the humor and seriousness that Joss Whedon brings to his shows in this one.

Plus I am really hoping that we find out what happened to Agent Coulson! They keep hinting at something in every episode. Eventually we will get around to it, but I really hope that it is sooner rather than later.

Any of y'all following Agents of Shield? I record it and am usually a week or two behind when it is broadcast. I am thoroughly enjoying it.
