Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Premiere

Ok. I feel I have to chime in a bit. I JUST watched the premiere of “Agents” and while I thought it was a solid first episode I do feel the need to chime in a couple of things I noticed. 

Ok. He’s back. They faked his death or whatever. I figured that out when I saw the promos. But this whole “he never should find out” thing. Lame. The show would be ok without it. 

Agent Grant Ward
Or, more specifically the actor that plays him, Brett Dalton. Horrible actor. Ugh. Hope he gets some acting lessons before he goes and ruins the show. 

References to every movie Marvel has made…like ever!!
Ok kids. Let’s count. Tell me if I missed anything. Ahem
New York
Stark tower 
The Chitauri
Super soldier serum
Agent Romanoff
The Spider-Man esque way buddy climbed the building 
Mention of Thor’s arms
Mention of Loki
And even used the train station the final scenes is the same station that gets a new sunroof thanks to Cyclops’ laser vision  in the very first Xmen movie. I’m sure there was more. This is just off the top of my head. 

Yes. We get it Joss. This series is set firmly in the Marvel universe. No need to ram it down our throats. 

All that said. I’ll be watching. For sure
