[Spoilers for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are blowing stuff up herein.]

Okay, I know several Shakers will red-face explode if we don't immediately discuss the premiere of ABC's new Marvel series Agents of SHIELD (fuck all those periods), so here we go!

What did you think? I thought it was pretty good! Holy moly the production values! That Avengers money bought a very nice-looking TV show! The establishing story was okay—although, if I'm honest, I was a little confused about the raison d'ĂȘtre for SHIELD, despite the amusingly sarcastic exposition provided by Chiseled White Hero. Iain, however, did not find it confusing, but he reads way more Marvel comic books than I do, so.

I definitely didn't feel like I wanted to root for them, though! They seemed ethically ambiguous at best!

Anyway. I won't belabor it, because we can talk about ALL THE THINGS in comments.

In summation: Ming-Na Wen!
