    Wasn't sure what to expect, but didn't think much of it. I'm surprised by the positive reactions I've read elsewhere. Loved Avengers, but haven't see Whedon's other TV shows, so I'm wondering if what we saw in the pilot is consistent with his "style".

    Relatively close. Somewhat watered down, since I suspect he's got many, many more corporate overlords than he had in previous TV gigs.

    watched the first 3 episodes today...

    I didn't have high expectations, so......

    The Pilot was mediocre but enjoyable..
    It was nice seeing Clark Gregg as Agent Poulson in a leading role...
    As for the Hacktivist, Chloe Wang/Bennet (as Skye) - I instantly liked her, not only for obvious eyecandy reasons :D
    She was the most interesting character....

    Episode 2 was..well.. quite bad... The actors and their characters were bland and one-dimensional.. But at least the ending was hilarious :lol:

    Episode 3, that's when things started to really go up, qualitywise.. Great episode and hopefully the characters and show will grow on that...

    Poulson and Skye are the ones who really carry the show, at least for me... So I'll keep watching


    Every television show which involves Whedon will forever be compared to Buffy and having a hard time reaching up to its heights... It's way too early to say anything, but the first two episodes were miles away... Episode 3 showed quite potential :)

    Anyone still watching this? Still not a knockout for me, but enjoyable enough.

    ABC just ordered a full 22 episodes.

    I do, yeah it's enjoyable enough and having a live-action show browsing through the marvel universe is nice...... storywise the highpoint was clearly Graviton's origin story..

    however, I much prefer what CW is doing with Star(ling) City's Hero :slayer:

    I've been enjoying the show. Not great, but cute and quirky. And I have a crush on Simmons.

    I got to say, this seasons been real good.

    If yall haven't been watching, watch season 1 in one sitting (works much better as a whole) and then catch up on season 2.
