Sorry not sorry

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is really bad. Not "Sharknado" bad (because that's so bad it's good) but commits the worse crime of being boring. Of being unimaginative. There is nothing new to say, nothing new to do, nothing new they're going to explore. I said last night on Twitter that it would have been an amazing show in 1986. It would have felt like Indiana Jones on TV.

But in 2013? No. And I'm SAD about that. (And I seriously do not get what has errbody fanning themselves over Coulson. He looks like a tax adjuster.)

ION, I needed a break from writing OMH (because I'm stuck on bad parts of my life and how to tell that without it sucking) so I switched over to writing fanfic (Sterek). And I wanted it to be short but I don't know how it's going to be shorter than 25K. WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE.

Someone make Sally Derg stop being an idiot when the bus pulls up with the kids, please. OMG SHUT UP DOGGIE STAHP.

Exactly! The show is unimaginative and looks like something from TV decades ago. I think ABC Studios also made Alias, which started 2002, and that looked so much better! Then again, Bad Robot might have had something to do with that.

I'm willing to give the show a few more episodes, since 1) shows can start out bad, 2) I'm trapped into watching it with my family, and 3) one of my favorite current actresses, Ruth Negga, is making her US TV debut in episode 4.

Then again, I liked Iain de Caestecker (the male part of the overtalking science duo) on BBC's The Fades, because he surprised me in making a lead character that would usually annoy me into someone I actually liked watching. But his and other characters in SHIELD are just given banter and message!of!the!week! so I'm just shaking my head at lost potential. My favorite may be Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), not just for the cool factor, but because she has no time for much of the wannabe quirk. The lead guy is so boring and my judgment is hanging over the hacker character and whether its the writing or her actress who's weaker.

more random speculation:
hey, Zack Whedon also worked on Dr. Horrible! He did some decent episodes for Fringe as well, and wrote two of my favorite episodes of Southland season 5. If they're going the nepotism route, I wonder if SHIELD would have turned out differently with Zack instead of Jed and Mo, or if there are other factors involved. or if Zack wanted to stay far away...


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.
