Is anyone else watching “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”? Joss Whedon is one of the executive producer/co-creators and his involvement is plainly visible. This show exemplifies those things Joss is good at – engaging scenarios, believable backdrops, likeable characters and snappy dialogue. Another delightful feature of the show is the occasional crossover reference to the extended Marvel franchise universe. It has been rumored there will be a tie-in on the April 8th episode to the “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” movie coming out on the 4th.

Admittedly, the show has another trademark attribute of a Joss Whedon show – a certain level of cheesiness that has the ability to make you cringe. Season 1, episode 15, was an example of that – “Yes Men”, tells the story of an Asgardian warrior come to Earth to capture an escaped prisoner able to bend the will of men with her voice. The escapee’s name – Lorelei (Teutonic Mythical Reference, please pick up the house phone). This episode had cringe-worthy moments aplenty as Lorelei takes over various male teammates. But hey, I’m okay with that, a bit of cheese is a small price to pay for an enjoyable show where the main characters aren’t being eaten by zombies every other episode.

  1. I feel sorry for poor Fitz 🙁

    Nice twist though. However, I don’t buy that Simmons would just walk out; am I forgetting something from last season?

  3. I thought they said she left because she thought it would be better for him without her there.

  4. Forlath Grey 6 years ago

    Again, I don’t buy it. Why would she possibly think that? My point being there has been nothing in previous episodes that would justify what at this point seems such uncharacteristic behavior. I suspect contract renegotiations.

  5. Hey, I’m just saying what I thought I heard one of the characters mention in the show. If she truly cared for him, I should think she wouldn’t leave, especially under the circumstances.
    It does make for an interesting look into how the mind works. He apparently needs her, thus his brain refuses to accept she is no longer there? (keeping her still a part of the series, as well)
    It’s a shame they can’t somehow recreate the GH 325 serum from Coulson’s or Skye’s blood? Maybe it would help Fitz?
