Around The Web

    i will be honest that series is so lame an boring . I stopped watching it after 2 episode….

    • bookon

      The last few episodes were very good.

    • Arthur Dent

      Then you have been missing what has turned into a pretty solid series.

  • Outland196

    Funny how much certain Collider writers likes to bash the show, yet it is still one of the highest rated shows of the night and only a few episodes in….granted there is room for improvement but the episodes seem to get better every time and bring in some wholesome and stupid fun and that’s been missing from television since shows like the A-team and Night Rider. Not every series out there has to be full of drug laden sexually explicit brain twisting plot lines…. frankly, that stuff is getting too heavy and tiring to watch. I’ll take a good night of silly marvel action any day!

    • Me

      A-Team and Night Rider were wholesome? I might as well make bones about the amount of viollence in an average episode of the Waltons or Little House on the Prairie..

    • Lance

      The show still has to do better, though, otherwise it’ll get cancelled after the first season. If it hadn’t gotten the full season order early on, everyone on the show would be sweating bullets right now.

    • Strong Enough

      you’re an idiot

      • Arthur Dent

        Those kinds of comments make you sound like an absolute genius.


        AoS is getting better with each episode. The last few have been pretty darn good.

      • Strong Enough

        thank you. i am a genius

    • dangeer

      It’s definitely a show that gets better with every episode. Not every series starts off great.

  • Stuntman Mike

    I tuned in to S.H.I.E.L.D. with high hopes on the season premiere and found it unwatchable. Guess I’m not alone.

  • The Flobbit

    Excuse me while I dance around the room. Marvel is NOT undefeatable!
