An Actual Post Post  
So, Agents of SHIELD....

I'm enjoying it, though I was certain it couldn't live up to the hype, and it hasn't, but still, a solid start with a whole lot of potential.

Coulson, well, it's Coulson :D

Melinda May!! Might I say, it's terrific having a woman the same age as I am as a kick ass strong female on a TV show.

Skye, meh. She's a little too 'Faith' from BtVS for me, and I was never much of a Faith fan.

Fitz and Simmons are as cute as buttons.

Ward, he's okay, but the character doesn't really grab me.

The tag, with Nick Fury, was total awesomeness.

The consultants line totally cracked me up from a my fic angle.

Mostly, this show is breeding plot bunnies. I now have a whole mental outline of a mission to the Isla de Muerta, pirate treasure that contains Asgardian artifacts, and said artifacts leading to an appearance by Loki. Yeah, it's kinda been eating my brain since the middle of the night. We'll see if I actually write it.

I figured I would love Grant Ward before the show even started, and he's definitely my favorite character. I didn't think I had very high expectations for it, but I may have. Whether I did or not, I did enjoy the second episode more than the first. I'm not sure how I feel about most of the rest of the characters. I want to like Melinda May because of who she's played by, and Coulson because of his being brought back for the show, but I haven't clicked with either of them as strongly as Grant. Course I also was sure before it even started that I wasn't going to like Skye, and I don't. Life is full of trade offs.

Write it! I triple dog dare you! (And for some reason I first typed that as "I trope dog dare you". Hmmm....)

Yes! Someone else who sees Skye as a Faith! People kept saying Summer Glau but I was all, Eliza Dushku peeps, not Summer Glau!

I agree that Ward needs a lot more character development to make him likeable. Currently, I like Skye more than him.

I've been enjoying it quite a bit as well - Lots of potential, hope it doesn't get wasted.

I find myself wanting more of Melinda May's story...

I've noticed a trend with Joss Whedon shows, they tend to take a few episodes to really get going before they become full blown fannish addictions. So I still have hope that SHIELD will eventually live up to it's hype. I'd say give it until after episode 6 before you decide it's not as good as it could be.

That fic idea sounds extremely interesting and needs to be written. ;)

I'm not sure I like Grant Ward any. He's too... blank? I guess? Love Melinda May, even tho she feels a bit too Natasha Romanova. FitzSimmons FTW, and I'm undecided about Skye. And Coulson is Coulson!

Its great that you are extending your literary world to include the rest of SHIELD.

Regarding Melinda May, I feel somewhat the same about Owen Granger (Miguel Ferrer) on NCIS: LA even though he is younger than me. Heh, even Capt Roy Montgomery is younger than me. As is Mr Finch. This is too strange.

Anyway, keep writing. We like it.
