Well the actors are almost all unknowns, except for The Clark Gregg.
There's also a change for famous guest spots.
It is the same universe as the avengers and spiderman so...

Miss me?

I collected Marvel comics for years but, Meh! I liked the agent Coulson character but he died :cry: and in true Marvel fashion he appears to be alive and well :clap:

I'm sure it is already destined for reruns on the SyFy network.

We'll see how this turns out..

It's a cool concept, and I love the Marvel cinematic universe. It's one of the most incredible pursuits in entertainment history.

How well would a television show do set in this universe? I suppose the only answer is to wait and see.

I only just noticed this was a Joss Whedon thing. Anticipation levels have just increased 23%

I can't see this getting tossed early :)

I'm hoping it doesn't pull a Firefly.

So do I, but let's put some perspective on it - when I first watched Firefly, I'd just been handed a DVD set of the already canceled show. I've never even heard of it before then. Though I did manage to watch Serenity at the cinema. There was zero publicity behind the launch (not where I live, at least).

In contrast, this new series had been fully saturated in media and build up. Only an utterly abysmal start will destroy this show, and I have the faith in Whedon to be able to construct a show that can hook people from the second or third episode (I never include the Pilot, rarely does a Pilot have the strength to hook an entire audience - Firefly's first episode was not the greatest TV I'd ever seen, but by the end of "The Train Job" I was officially a fan).

I trust Whedon when it comes to television shows.

Hopefully the attention this has received will give it a proper run.

..."posted the best numbers for a new drama in almost four years."...
..."attracting just under 12 million viewers and a big 4.6 rating among viewers in the 18- to 49-year-old age group".

I caught the premier Tuesday night and really liked it. I'm usually not free to watch live tv so I'll be keeping up via VOD.

I missed it unfortunately. I don't watch a lot of television; I caught the season premier of South Park last night by chance.

I'll have to see if the pilot episode of S.H.I.E.L.D is on demand.

If it is I'll watch it and post about it.

I really enjoyed the first episode! Can't wait to see where they take it! I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Not bad. I hope the first ep isn't representative of the formula they're going with though, 'cus I'm getting a really strong "Alphas" vibe.
