I was surprised at how skeeved out Coulson made me at start of 3.02 but I'm loving almost everyone else.

Favorite storylines? Storylines/characters you don't like anymore?

I must confess, I have not watched any of the new season and am struggling to muster the motivation to do so.

Fitzsimmons, Bobbi doing science, and Skye seeking team keep me watching, but Ward and Coulson make it hard. I hear good things about May in episode 2 as well, which makes me want to wade back in.

I think I'm having difficulty with they aren't really building up to any story lines. It's just the drama of the season, sprinkled with shoe-horned movie tie-ins that only affect the TV show to make people want to go see the movies when they come out.

It made sense in season one, but last season was difficult to watch.

AOS is my canon hangout in MCU, not my fandom, and I saw movies really afterward. I admit I tracked and enjoyed the AOS storylines, like Bobbi and Hunter and Mack, the Inhumans and family and identity for Skye, the Ward/Kara relationship and vengeance thing, and definitely bringing accountability to SHIELD, though the failure on that front disappoints me.

I see movie breadcrumbs but they don't dent much because most of my movie experience is just osmosis, not actually viewing.

DA I loved the original Fitzsimmons dynamic but can't stand the will-they-or-won't-they angle (I think it would've worked a lot better if they'd been siblings), Bobbi is....okay I guess but I can't stand Hunter, I hated Ward from the get-go and I feel like Skye and Coulson have both turned into different people. I think I might just drift away for a while and see if I want to watch it later, I don't want to get more bitter about it. That last has been a problem for me with MCU lately and I'm trying to do better.

I'm not a fan of Hunter either, though I can stand him now. But not sure if you know, they've moved past will they to yes, they will in season 2 finale. Dramatic rescue in season 3.

I love AOS. It hasn't had a dud episode in ages. I only hope that the Hunter in HYDRA plot doesn't mean that he goes grim and serious. I need his snark.

I love it too. I do have issues currently with Coulson, but I love so many of the storylines.

I wonder if missing season 1 is part of why I LOVE Skye/Daisy so much? I don't have a problem with her development at all. As someone who's also had a complicated split with my parents and always used sarcasm as a defense mechanism, I really relate to her in so many ways.

Re: Agents of SHIELD Discussion

I watched all of it and I adore her, so I don't know. I never hated her like so many others did. I think people don't give her credit for how young she is and then get annoyed at her when she acts a bit immature (which happened more in Season 1). She was hamstrung with some poor writing in Season 1 and people decided she was a terrible actress and Skye was a terrible character. When the writing improved and Skye was given more depth and Chloe had better stuff to work with, it's like people stuck their head in the ground and pretended that it didn't happen. I love how she's grown and has accepted responsibility without losing her essential urge to make the world better.

That doesn't include the people who decided that she's the worst for not forgiving Ward.

He continually proves more and more why she should not ever forgive him or give him slack.

I also love the way she carries this legacy of the good things her parents were trying to do in protecting Inhumans while not making the same choices at all. I look forward to the rest of this season so much. /squishes Skye

any good noncanonical stuff that just seems so real in context of the show?

e.g. after Fitz's admiration, I really can't see Mack as straight any more.

Skye Johnson: On Daisy’s name change from the perspective of a trans fan.
http://archiveofourown.org/works/4973641

Excerpt:

A name change, a first name change, is a right of passage in the trans community. Not all trans people go through it, that’s true. Just like not all people go to their highschool graduation or to prom, have a bar mitzvah or a sweet 16. But it’s just as important and affirming as any other coming of age event. Perhaps, even more so. It is one of the most concrete ways to affirm an identity. In someways it seems almost sacred.



Any thoughts on this, nonnies? The more I wander about AOS commentary, the more I wander into people saying season 2 Skye is Daisy, etc. and other things that have me realizing the name change is a bigger deal to most fans than I realized.

I loved pretty much everything except the Daisy/Lincoln, because Lincoln is annoying and they are chemically inert. Coulson continues to be shady as fuck, but I'm interested in where they're going with Shadowy Government Agency.

May and Hunter infiltrating Hydra Fight Club is the best.

I'm not fond of Daisy/Lincoln either. I like him, but not paired up with her.

AoS adds Powers Boothe in a recurring role as Gideon Malick. He previously played a world Security council member in The Avengers.

Looks like he might be another villain.

So what did you think of this week's episode, nonnies? I will be so pissed if Andrew is actually dead. So will May. Though I do also wonder if Andrew is Lash, Y/N?

SO HAPPY that we are going to get more of Simmons on the alien planet! Yay!

They really need to get Bobbi back in the field, ASAP. I like that they're trying to show consequences, but I'm tired of her being sidelined.

Re: Agents of SHIELD Discussion - The Devil You Know

I loved it!

I'm definitely on board with more Simmons on the alien world, and really want to know what happened to her. I'm continuing to love Fitz, too, and slowly coming round to FitzSimmons.

I like the continuing development of Daisy and her friendship with Mack. That scene in the ER stood out to me, with Mack immediately taking the sling off his injured arm. A separated shoulder is not something to fool around with, so I'm starting to wonder if he's enhanced, too, and if so, if that isn't playing into his wariness of enhanced people in general.

I don't think Andrew is Lash. I could see him becoming an Inhuman. I just can't see him going on a murder spree without some sort of major split personality and amnesia going on. Or maybe mind control.

I'm hoping he's not dead, but fear that he is. And I also noticed that Werner von Strucker seemed really upset afterwards. Like maybe it's finally hitting home what being in HYDRA and working for a man like Grant Ward really means. It also raises the possibility of a face-heel turn later on.

Bobbi in the field would be nice, and so would Hunter and May coming back.

I'm looking forward to next week's ep and how this is all going to fit into the run-up to Civil War. I'm also curious as to how the behind-the-scenes stuff at Marvel will affect that.

The ep was a little dull for me but I liked the interactions between different characters. Like Bobbi & FitzSimmons, or Coulson & May. The Mack/Daisy friendship continues to be a joy for me.

I think Andrew's death is a red herring but we'll see what next week gives us. Andrew could be Lash...but it strikes me as...problematic (lack a better if they were to do that.

Love that Lance's vendetta plot against Ward was dealt with quickly, as was the Strucker Junior joined Andrew's class to spy on him stuff. Hunter is back on May's shitlist no matter if Andrew lives or dies.

Shallow but I love May dressed in that punk look. Ming-Na is a beautiful woman but that outfit in these last two eps...does a lot more for her, imo.

Am very interested in seeing Simmons's time on that planet. It'll probably break my heart but in a good way.

Coulson...ok, I know a lot of people are justifiably upset with Coulson. But I still feel a little bad for him. He's trying to do his best running SHIELD, dealing with an Inhuman epidemic, & Ward's vengeance. I'm not saying he's making good choices but I feel for the dude.

I liked Lab!Bobbi but seeing her in the field again would be amazing.

I don't watch AoS but sometimes I read episode summaries or watch the trailers and so recently I noticed Von Strucker's name appearing in connection to the Inhumans. That's the guy who "made" Wanda and Pietro in AoU right?

So to make the long question short, does that mean that they too are Inhumans in this universe?

Re: Agents of SHIELD Discussion - question

(Anonymous) 2015-11-09 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
No, it's his son. And no, Wanda and Pietro are not Inhumans. They got their powers from the Mind Stone.

Re: Agents of SHIELD Discussion - question

Ah, thanks for the answer!


IMO they should've hired someone older to play AoU Von Strucker then.
