Bertone: I’m home from work early. You know what might be a fun last minute thing? A live blog of the SHIELD series premiere. Spoilers under the cut.
9:00: Well done for a first episode. I still think it needs to grow though. What are your thoughts gents?
9:00: “Back To The Future” called. They want their ending back.
8:58: Good job. I really thought they were going to take the easy way out. Sometimes the heroes need to win. Especially in this age.
8:55: Action sequences are boss! Keep it up Marvel Studios.
8:54: It will be very easy to go for the dark ending here. I hope they don’t.
8:52: Nice to say Clark Gregg stepping in and taking control.
8:46: Comixology is missing a key opportunity by not having classic SHIELD comics for sale today.
8:45: Wow, bringing in some mythology from Iron Man 3.
8:42: “This is a disaster”. “No, it’s an origin story”.
8:42: INTERESTING! Great reveal. Glad the show could keep me guessing in it’s first episode.
8:37: Lots of promos for ABC shows that nobody watches.
8:34: Seems like we’re looking at a super villain origin story!
8:33: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOook…..Coulson has unusual methods!
8:31: Lots of info dump but I’m starting to get intrigued. Still getting a “Smallville” vibe.
8:31: “Cosplay girls strutting around Stark Tower”.
8:28: Favorite new character so far….Skye. I like a good female antagonist with a sense of humor.
8:22: Smug Coulson is fun.
8:20: “Journey Into Mystery”. Pandering Easter Egg…but I loved it.
8:17: Almost got a Spidey quote.
8:15: Lots of new characters being thrown at me. Not sure what to make of them yet.
8:12: By the way, Cobie has great comedic timing. The banter is great. I hope she becomes a regular once her stint on “How I Met Your Mother” is over.
8:10: INTERESTING! There may be more to Coulson’s revival than meets the eye. Could he be an LMD unaware he’s not human?
8:08: I still have big problems with Coulson surviving. It’s a cheat and it makes the Avengers motivation a lie.
8:07: “Sorry that corner was really dark and I couldn’t help myself”. I still think him being alive is a cop out but I like that line.
8:05: Jack Kirby credit!!!! Awesome! Seeing Agent Hill is interesting one day after the “How I Met Your Mother” season premiere.
8:05: Opera music playing over a battle is cliche. Stop it. It’s getting old. I GET IT! It’s ironic!
8:05: So far I feel like it’s a cross between James Bond, Heroes and Smallville.
8:03: I’m getting SMALLVILLE flashbacks.
8:01: Seeing the Marvel logo was something special. So is this father a SHIELD agent? OH!!! Nevermind! Guess he’s got powers…..
7:59: I was actually worried about getting everything booted up in time. I had this idea less than 10 minutes ago.
