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.

Fran Kranz was the Dollhouse actor that made the show for me. Not that Enver Gjokaj wasn't both easy on the eyes and versatile to boot, but Kranz made me care for Topher, made me believe he achieved a moral code. That's amazing.

I have such a crush on Phil Coulson, that I will watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. even if I don't particularly care for the others much. Although Ming-Na looks like she's going to be BADASS!

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.
