Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Fall TV is in swing! I want to like Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Really I do. I've even sat down with my two boys who are into all such actiony stuff. Lost the three year old almost immediately, as he kept looking for Iron Man or Thor or Hulk... The eight year old made it two episodes in, and seemed to like the action... and then missed last night's episode. I've been teetering. I'm watching for Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg). Love the mystery surrounding the how and why of his return, and he's a likable (better drawn?) character than the rest thus far. Last night saw the eensiest bit of character development for Skye and Ward and some of the others... as well as some cool effects when a scientist starts playing with gravity. Action and a cool universe will invite me along for the ride. But if you can't engage me with the characters, the ride may be a short one. Staying tuned a bit longer.
