The show has been excellent this year.  I was hopeful after the second half of last season, but I wasn't expecting it to be this good.  The show is doing everything well - character development, overarching story, action.  I also love how they
Spoiler for Hiden:
went full-on villain with Ward.  Too many shows do silly things to redeem their villains in order to keep a popular actor on the show *cough*Buffy*cough* so it's nice to see them avoid this.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Yeah he is so much better as a "villain."  So much sexier too, it's like he had a complete personality makeover.  Still, I think they may still try to redeem him as he could just be faking things to get in with Hydra.  I don't think he really killed his family but that would be cool if he did.

Up until the reveal earlier this season, I had held out hope that Skye's father was Howard the Duck.   crybaby

I almost slept through it again but woke up and ran to the TV long enough to get my Hayley Atwell fix. The Weghted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you.

I think at some point if I can watch the whole Season 1 and so-far Season 2 in one fell swoop, maybe I'll get back into it. For now I'm probably returning to ignoring it until Agent Carter premieres Jan. 6 as the mid-winter fill in.  icon_smile

You can safely ignore the first two thirds of season 1.  It was pretty awful.  But after that it just takes off like a rocket.  Most improvement in a show I've seen in ages.

Show is back, for better or worse!

I didn't realize it's pretty much been revealed who Skye is and what her powers are, though her origin has been altered.  Will be interesting to see if she crosses over at all with the Age of Ultron and/or Inhumans movies.

Anyone else still watching?  Last night's episode detailing how May became the Cavalry was really good.

The show as a whole I'm having mixed feelings.  While part of me is happy they've finally embraced powers/gifts (or whatever you want to call them), another part of me is wondering if they've already jumped the shark.  I mean, already there's a guy who can teleport it seems with no limitations on distance, a woman who is more or less immortal (?), and then Skye who can create earthquakes and all manner of shock waves, etc.  These are powers at least on the Avengers level.  Not quite Thor level, but certainly more than Captain America or Black Widow or Hawkeye.  It seems like they are falling straight into the trap they originally planned to avoid, where many characters seem obsolete relative to the powered folk.

It'll be okay, the core team is doesn't have powers, right now the arc is dealing with powered people, and prepping for the Inhuman movie way down the line. Plus there's the two shields storyline going at the same time.

I am going to fall back on the same feelings for the printed comic book media.  IF the non-powered get overshadowed, its because of the writing/story lines.  To take the DC example, Batman is horribly out powered in the Justice League, even the Outsiders, yet the stories are usually good or better for his inclusion.

The DC shows have to be wary of the same trap.  Arrow started out with no powers, to stay "grounded in reality" (I don't think that is possible for these shows), and have introduced super soldiers (Meraclu -whatever), non- existent super tech, and actual meta humans. Yet the show holds its own.
