I wanted to like this show, and I had the highest hopes for it. I loved The Avengers, even though we knew none of stars of it would be on this show. Samuel “I won’t turn down a role” L. Jackson did make a cameo last week. But whatever, I didn’t finish that episode because I quit the show earlier in the viewing. I am also somewhat of a Joss Whedon fan, although I didn’t watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Firefly and I didn’t care for that Dr. Horrible Sing Song thing that NPH did. I suppose with all that being said, I guess I am not really a Joss Whedon fan. Plus, his name is Joss. There is only one Joss, and she fucks for tracks.
Here is my issue with AoS: just about everything. The acting, the writing, cinematography, and even the sound are terrible. The only thing worse than those four is the casting. Clark Gregg’s casting only makes sense. Everyone else? JEE-sus Christ. Cobie Smulders made a cameo in the pilot reprising her character from The Avengers. I don’t watch HIMYM, so I have no fucks to give about her. In every scene, Ming-Na looks like she would rather be anywhere else. I get that her character is reluctant to be back in the field or whatever, but bitch looks BORED. Everyone else in the show seems to have been cast because they have a particular look. The two tech nerds on the show, Frick & Frack (I couldn’t be bothered to retain, much less look up their names), look just like that. Nerds. They are both typically quirky and blah blah blah. Of course there was the requisite scene where the badass/young stud/I work alone-type asked the nerds a question, and they reply in techno-babble to which he responds with, “In English!” I. Fucking. Hate. That. Even worse, the boy nerd says something like, “Do you mean it’s nuclear?” To which Clark Gregg says, “No. [dramatic pause] He means it’s something worse.” Really? Get the fuck out of here. “Take your NADS.” The idea of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: B+. The execution: F.
UPDATE: It turns out ABC is into bestiality scat play, because this horseshit just got a full season pick-up. Do you know who is absolutely thrilled by this news? This bitch:
This is really sad to hear. I still have to give it a shot (you two sometimes judge a little harshlies) but hopefully it turns it over like Eureka did. Started out schlock, but turned that schlock into silver. Never gold, but definitely silver.
I’m the opposite. I thought Eureka started good, then turned to shit. We watched the first 3 or 4 seasons then quit it. Same goes for Psych.
Never did psych, but AoS falls into that crap Stargate: SG1 category for me. I’ll prolly keep watching (by which I mean listening while playing Candy Crush).
