Yay?
Indy - 11/21/2013, 3:35 PM
ugh I didn't like him.
Buu - 11/21/2013, 3:35 PM
Sounds good to me. The last episode was awesome!

"Tahiti. It's a magical place."

Indy - 11/21/2013, 3:37 PM
Tahiti. It's a magical place. what hell does that mean.
MiracleMe - 11/21/2013, 3:40 PM
I didn't mind the guy so much. Hopefully he'll be better written this time around.

And they better not screw up with this Coulson/Tahiti/resurrection thing! That'll be a nail in the coffin for the show.
DrDoom - 11/21/2013, 3:41 PM
I'm ok with this.
JoeMomma29 - 11/21/2013, 3:41 PM
Wow sounds exciting!
WYLEEJAY - 11/21/2013, 3:47 PM
Ya know, I can't help but wonder if he is going to change his name to Luke Cage. The character in the comics changed his name to Luke Cage. Their definitely not the same but it could be a modernization of the character. Does he still have his powers now that the centipede has been removed? The night night gun shouldn't have penetrated his skin if in fact he is gonna change his identity.
Rokyn - 11/21/2013, 3:51 PM
He was awesome in the first episode! Probably one of the characters that grabbed me in and he was extremely retable. Great actor too and he had that fantastic monologue in the first episode. Surprised to see some of you dislike him...I was wishing he stayed as the superpowered member of the team, the powerhouse if you will.
Cles - 11/21/2013, 3:52 PM
@Wylee I doubt it. With the Cage show going to Netflix, I just don't see Richards as someone who can carry a show.
CherryBomb - 11/21/2013, 3:54 PM
Don't care for his character at all.
It's great to hear that Ruth Negga is appearing though! Definitely want to learn more about Raina!

They really need to introduce more comic characters, desperately, to liven things up. Arrow is slaying them right now.

ForMeToPoopOn - 11/21/2013, 3:54 PM
Are we finally getting a crossover with the FX crime drama?! YES!!! Is that the Mexican detective guy, or the odd kinda-bangable white chick?

CherryBomb - 11/21/2013, 3:55 PM
I've noticed they've been hinting a lot at magic with the last episode and the possibility that it could in fact, exist.

Perhaps as a way of hinting at Scarlet Witch having magical powers perhaps ?
antoineflemming - 11/21/2013, 3:55 PM
Um, what "war"?
Rokyn - 11/21/2013, 3:55 PM
@Pasto it's "they're". They aren't owning something with "their" but rather they are doing something, "they-are shortened to they're". "There" states a place or a point of view you point at from a distance. "Look at that bird over there"
...
..
It's okay I guess, it's just that everyone does that nowadays on the internet -_-
CherryBomb - 11/21/2013, 3:57 PM
I hope they reveal Coulson's secret in the mid season finale.
It's kinda ridiculous how they have to blatantly mention it every since episode, kinda shoving it in our faces. It's bearable now but I hope it doesn't last all 22 episodes.
fortycals - 11/21/2013, 4:01 PM
Hell yeah. Knew this would happen.
Rokyn - 11/21/2013, 4:04 PM
@all
Why don't you guys/gals care for Mike Peterson? He was really relatable to me, I myself being a single-parent African American father and experiencing his issues every day. The moment where he tells his son, "remember what I told you we're a team", I got teary eye yo lol. His whole being a superhero thing was a bit over the top but ultimately his monologue at the end really sold it for me. J played him well as a self-conflicted single father trying to make a living. Interested on your thoughts.
Spidey91 - 11/21/2013, 4:04 PM
I think they should keep him in the team: you got the tough guy (Ward), the geeks (Fitz and Simmons), the outsider (Skye), the quiet but badass one (May), the leader tormented by his past (Coulson), just add the super-human and you're done.
npamusic - 11/21/2013, 4:05 PM
This is gonna be awesome.
Indy - 11/21/2013, 4:17 PM
Didn't he murder his boss that no superhero.
DrDoom - 11/21/2013, 4:24 PM
I say keep him on the team
ThePowerCosmic - 11/21/2013, 4:24 PM
SlaveMaster

Why do you keep trolling on Marvel articles? If you hate them so much just stick to the DC articles where you always have something so kind to say. And please don't give a list of Marvel films you approve of, you already proved your a troll.
dinkinflicka - 11/21/2013, 4:27 PM
I only care about them bringing back Graviton. This shows needs a central villain and more ties to the comics.
Lemons - 11/21/2013, 4:31 PM
No...it's an origin story!!!
ThePowerCosmic - 11/21/2013, 4:32 PM
Slave

You just said the show sucks...how does that say its growing on you?
Rokyn - 11/21/2013, 4:34 PM
@ThePowerCosmic
Why do you think he's a DC fanboy? What if he is a MCU fanboy but just doesn't enjoy the show? You people throw out the most crazy assumptions. And don't say I'm trolling, I love the show bro, no need to pull one out on me either. Okay? Lay down your weapon kind sir, I'm not here to troll. Like man, everything has to be either black or white on this site...
GliderMan - 11/21/2013, 4:38 PM
Hopefully Graviton will be teased in the midsession finale.
Rokyn - 11/21/2013, 4:40 PM
@Indy
Dude was fed up bro, guy was giving him issues. That guy was not all "innocent" in a sense he was a dick but you don't kill people for that reason. So I agree with you on that part but it's a character flaw and they purposely put that there. We are supposed to be opposed to him on that end but you can also tell the guy had a rough past. That's when he released his anger. Don't you feel like you wanna punch your boss at the face a couple times if you could? And did that guy die? I haven't seen the episode in a while. But hey Joss Whedon wrote that and he writes golden material ;D
InfiniteMonkey - 11/21/2013, 4:46 PM
I hope the son isn't involved. He was annoying and he couldn't even drink beer. Uhhhh!
ThePowerCosmic - 11/21/2013, 4:46 PM
Rokyn

Whoa...teaming up on me? Slave is an adult and can defend himself just fine. I just get annoyed when I go to Marvel articles and i see the same 3 people making the same negative comments everytime. I get voicing your opinion, but damn I cant take these flame war comments from Desrow, SlaveMaster and Mr.Fridaynight all the time on every Marvel article, its just pathetic.

I come here to discuss the films and shows I like, I dont expect everyone to like the same stuff, but if you dont why not comment on the stuff you do like or give sound reasons for not liking it instead of "this show sucks" type comments. This site just gets so freaking immature sometimes.
ThePowerCosmic - 11/21/2013, 4:51 PM
Slave

Ok sorry...I know that was low, Friday night is way worse. Saying Thor should have made 600m by now instead 500m by now and that it FAILED...Seriously?
Rokyn - 11/21/2013, 4:55 PM
Actually I'm not teaming up against you, I'm calling you out on your bullshit. Let them troll all they want, why do you care what they say? If you truly love the show, then others opinions wouldn't bother you because you love it regardless. Though IF you're defending the show, that's another topic but you can't just call someone a troll and not defend the show. Ask them why do you hate it and if you can, try to defend it with reasons instead of calling people off as trolls. BUT I agree that if you don't like the show/movie why even click on the article? Then again you do that sometimes too on DC/MOS stuff so it's a double standard dude. Nothing against you, just pointing stuff out. Anyways can't wait for next episode of AOS.
AlSimmons - 11/21/2013, 4:57 PM
Coulson went to Valhalla, duhhhh.
Rokyn - 11/21/2013, 5:01 PM
And Slave is not innocent either, no need to keep saying the show sucks on most AOS when we heard you the first time around. Then again, if you have "reasonable" reasons to justify your hate, explain yourself and be prepared to defend your points. Don't just go around troll for no reason.
ThePowerCosmic - 11/21/2013, 5:03 PM
Rokyn

Actually I have a lot of issues with the show, I just get sick of the same complaints against Marvel stuff...its so damn damn nitpicky...but you know what...youre right I shouldnt care. I think I will just stick to reading the articles and not the comments....it just sucks because some people on this site do a great job of discussing these shows respectfully.

I never said people cant like and dislike stuff, but I do not go to every MoS article and DC article and bash it, and I always say it is my opinion, I do not state it like a fact.
Rokyn - 11/21/2013, 5:04 PM
And the people praising Thor 2's box office also critized MOS box office which also was 600+mil. Double standard heh? Regardless, Thor TDW and MOS both deserved those numbers for being pretty awesome and kickass films.
ColonelKilgore - 11/21/2013, 5:06 PM
This show went downhill fast. Limping along with Coulson and Tahiti, Skye and Hopes of super powered people from the actual comics.
Rokyn - 11/21/2013, 5:08 PM
@ThePowerCosmic
I actually see where you are coming from. Keep commenting bro but just don't feed the trolls ;) your input is well appreciated. And yeah I know they always say it's either too much humor, annoying characters, not a masterpiece, or not enough seriousness...I'm like WTF? Those aren't criticisms those are nitpicks. Some people are just assholes..
Gerave95 - 11/21/2013, 5:10 PM
This the first time Im gonna troll in my life so here I go
Arrow and AoS suck
In fact every tv show suck
Except Mad men, Breaking Bad
