i'm going with no he won't destroy them all. maybe 1 death
Luminus - 3/7/2014, 5:27 AM
Ensign Suder is going to kill them all for killing those innocent solders last episode and violating the Geneva Convention by threatening that prisoner.
Dev7 - 3/7/2014, 5:28 AM
This show pulls in TONS more ratings that Arrow yet it doesn't have a cameo or recurring role of a well-known comic book character like Arrow does every week. Hmmmm
ProfessorX - 3/7/2014, 5:28 AM
@Netman: Are you serious? The last 4-5 episodes have been epic!
McNyagano - 3/7/2014, 5:36 AM
Luminus - 3/7/2014, 5:41 AM
So, is Chucky going to kill the agents?
ProfessorX - 3/7/2014, 5:41 AM
@Netman: How many episodes have you actually watched, out of interest?
jimoakley666 - 3/7/2014, 5:44 AM
It's not restarted on British telly yet so I've not seen any eps since before Christmas. Is Deathlok looking, y'know, like Deathlok?
Luminus - 3/7/2014, 5:46 AM
Doopie - 3/7/2014, 5:49 AM

I'm in the UK too but I watch online
KeefNCookies - 3/7/2014, 5:51 AM
I've seen all episodes so far. There has literally been ZERO things that have brought me any excitement or joy. I agree with Netman's assessment wholeheartidly. One of the worst shows I've ever wasted my time on (and stupidly, a part of me still wants to believe it'll be worth keeping up with the MCU... freakin idiot >_<).
ProfessorX - 3/7/2014, 5:56 AM
@jimoakley666: He's only been in one episode (T.R.A.C.K.S) as Deathlok, which is when he got the robot leg. I guess his look will gradually evolve throughout the rest of the season.
kevberg - 3/7/2014, 5:58 AM

How about you go back and suck ass of teh the 5 o'clock shadow bridage and the boring ass Suicide squad on Arrow. Almost everything there was done better and FIRST by Smallville Jerky.

Yeah, AOS had avengers ..thats because Warner Bros cant get their shit together.

Arrow F@ckheads.
Pedrito - 3/7/2014, 5:58 AM
Netman's "assessment"?
Hahaha.. Some people are easily convinced by trollish quips.
kevberg - 3/7/2014, 6:02 AM
See, the Arrowheads , can't just enjoy the show, they have to Sh@tbomb the AOS stuff because they gotta have their little flame war.

ANYONE with half a brain and teaspoon of honesty can see AOS has progressively getting better.
Growup - 3/7/2014, 6:05 AM
I am hype Garret, Trip, Blake, Sitwell, Hand and Deathlok :D ( Harley Quinn is ("nearly") confirmed by the actress. )
Bekss - 3/7/2014, 6:08 AM
Bobby Roth has directed the best episode (Tahiti) and Paul has writer good episodes too (FZZT and The Magical Place)
PeterDarker121 - 3/7/2014, 6:09 AM
Agent Sitwell is one of the SHIELD hostages on the ship Batroc and his men hijack in the latest Winter Soldier clip...maybe that happens offscreen within the next few episodes of AOS...
TelaVizion - 3/7/2014, 6:10 AM
They should somehow start H.A.M.M.E.R..... I just dont know who they should put in charge of it, since they cant use Norman Osborn.
PeterDarker121 - 3/7/2014, 6:11 AM
@Bekss 'FZZT' is my favorite written episode of the series so far so I'm looking forward to this one...
TheVirgin - 3/7/2014, 6:12 AM
The show gets better and better! Deathlok gonna own!
AntMan - 3/7/2014, 6:16 AM
The last episode was decent, but the show still needs a lot of improvement.
Pheezmatic - 3/7/2014, 6:18 AM
I have no doubt the rest of this season is going to be awesome. Just like the rest of Arrows season will be sick too. But the reason arrow gets all these guest stars every week is because so far it is a show that writes is own continuity and universe while Aos follows the lead of the movies. Cry me a River, build me a bridge... But really... get over it. They're both turning out awesome at what they do. Both are very different though. Give it a rest.
JoeMomma29 - 3/7/2014, 6:19 AM
Yes please do not group Netman with the rest of us he trolls everything on this site!
JoeMomma29 - 3/7/2014, 6:20 AM
@ Pheezmatic

Well said!
jimoakley666 - 3/7/2014, 6:21 AM
@ProfessorX, @MrMartinMarvel - Cheers. So, if he's just got a robotic leg, how is he Deathlok? Has he been brainwashed or something? Or is head dead and reanimated?

@Doopie - I was going to do that, but I like sitting on the sofa on a Friday evening to tune in with my missus. I don't actually watch that much TV so she likes the "us time".
ProfessorX - 3/7/2014, 6:21 AM
I guess 'Thomas Nash' will have some connection to the Clairvoyant. Brad Dourif is a great actor, btw.

charlie2094 - 3/7/2014, 6:23 AM
The last few episodes have been decent...still far from being a great show and needs a lot of improving, but not so bad anymore which is good!

Hopefully we do see more Deathlok soon, great to see that play out...imagine the Clairvoyant's identity won't be revealed until the very end, probably same with Coulsons death...
Pheezmatic - 3/7/2014, 6:26 AM
@Joe Thanks man :)

@professorX could it be that he is M.O.D.O.K.??
Lol oddly i can see it.
ProfessorX - 3/7/2014, 6:27 AM
@jimoakley666: Well, inside the robotic leg (when they zoomed in) it said "Project: Deathlok" - although he hasn't actually been called that yet. Re his consciousness, he is still Mike Peterson, but he is being given commands through the technology in his eye (and in return the Clairvoyant has implied he will get to see his son again).
MrSotoMan - 3/7/2014, 6:41 AM
It's getting a little better, but I kinda understand if they don't come up with Season 2.
KeefNCookies - 3/7/2014, 6:56 AM
It's simple wordplay, dont strain your brain too hard looking for deeper connections or you might hurt yourself!
ROBBEATZZZ - 3/7/2014, 6:56 AM
jimoakley666 - 3/7/2014, 7:09 AM
@ProfessorX - Ah, the eye like the computer guy and female ex-SHIELD agent had? Cool.
GeekyCheekyChic - 3/7/2014, 7:15 AM
its gotten much better episode by episode and its connected to whatever will go down in Cap 2 and Age of Ultron so it has my week to week interest.
Its hard waiting months and months for the next Marvel movie- this show is like the soup and salad before you get your steak and potatoes.

Arrow is a great show but the fact that it isn't connected to the DC cinematic universe bothers me because they are rolling out great characters that now either won't be used in movies or there will be two versions.
I want 1 Flash Barry Allen
I want to see Deathstroke vs Batfleck in a film
I want Green Arrow to join the JL on screen
Of course what I want doesn't really matter so....
GeekyCheekyChic - 3/7/2014, 7:17 AM
As for the topic- SHIELD...
Now the episodes feel like they actually MATTER. Like there is something to look forward to when April 4th rolls around for Cap 2 and possibly in GOTG we will find out who the hell the blue alien was in the that the episodes have meaning and purpose....HUGE IMPROVEMENT
ProfessorX - 3/7/2014, 7:25 AM
I have a theory that this (from Ep 4) is Kree writing:

...and Fury must have been lying about Thor being the first extraterrestrial known to SHIELD. I think SHIELD have known about aliens for decades (maybe since Star-Lord's mother was killed by one in the 80's).
Dinotron - 3/7/2014, 7:27 AM
AoS has definitely improved and it continuously is. There are just people who dont ralize that a TV series has to start from somewhere. Once they build everything up and things start rolling then everything spices up.
Pedrito - 3/7/2014, 7:29 AM
Gotcha. I'll shut off my brain when reading your comments.
ProfessorX - 3/7/2014, 7:31 AM
Also I think Skye is an Inhuman, which is why her body accepted the GH-235 made from the Kree (because Inhumans are Kree-engineered).
