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.

Ugh, L. I wanted to love it, but I ... I can't even say I liked it? I didn't DISlike it. But it's a total meh and if it wasn't Whedon I wouldn't even bother watching ep 2. But it is, so I will, but I have re-set my expectations accordingly, which is just so very disappointing. I WANTED TO LOVE THIS SHOW WHEDON WHY WON'T YOU LET ME LOVE YOUR STUFF ANYMORE GODAMMIT??

I was happy with the hour I spent in front of that show instead of Duck Dynasty with the Mr. and The Boy in the other room? So there's that? But I wanted to LOVE IT, YES, JUST AS YOU SAID.

I just like his stuff now, I'm not slavish/slobbering/grabby hands over his things anymore and that makes me SAD.

Aside from the Buffy verse I was never that fannish over his other stuff. I like Firefly a lot and Dollhouse became great in the second season, but I never realy felt to need to discuss it or seek out more than what I was given.

However, this was enjoyable if derivative so I'll keep watching. Plus it took Dollhouse quite a while to become watchable and Buffy didn't become completely awesome until mid second season.

I mostly agree, although I could have probably been fannish about FF had it continued. I did love Mal & River. And Mal/River bc uh, yeah. Dollhouse I loathed with the fiery passion of 10,000 suns but at least it made me feel SOMETHING. This is just. Meh.


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.
