Agent S.H.E.I.L.D. (no spoilers)

So I liked it. I just don't love it. And I think it's because Joss is still in love with the exact same type of characters, and keeps putting them in everything he does. It just doesn't feel new. Firefly at least felt like he swapped people around, and the actors in Dollhouse (specifically Enver Gjokaj, and WHY isn't that guy working all the damn time? He has seriously amazing range.) made that feel like something new - and the premise was really interesting, too.

=/ I was all excited to maybe add it to the recaps at HDJM, but I'm not in love with it, and it's a LOT of work to recap a show, which is why I have that whole rule about "only if you love it" for the writers.

Don't get me wrong, I'm going to keep watching because it's really entertaining - I mean, the man isn't capable of writing a show I won't enjoy - it's just not the Second Coming of Whedonverse.

I'm hungry, flist. I want all the grilled cheeses that exist. ALL OF THEM.

Executive producers have their tics and if you get tired of them, it can get miserable (see me and anything Moffat's working on).

I hit my Whedon limit at about Firefly (I couldn't get through Dollhouse), so I'm probably going to give this a pass.

(By contrast, I'm still not sick of Bryan Fuller shows, but I am rather fond of aggressive quirkiness.)

Miserable is overstating it but I didn't get around to sleeping last night and I can't word anymore.

Joss used to be the innovator, though. He's just recycling his personal character file, I feel, and putting them in a new setting. I'm still a fan of his types of characters, but I want it to feel like there are some new ideas there, too. *shrug*

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
