Killing the Fishtank- S.H.I.E.L.D. "0-8-4"
Episode 2 was a grand improvement, with the help of Angel alum writer/producer Jeffery Bell. Yay!
It's nice to know the writers were aware that the first episode was a bit of a clusterfuck and addressed it head-on immediately. And finishing it with a weird hissy-fit from Director Fury was kind of awesome.
Also, two thoughts on Coulson:
1) I think he's actually a robot.
2) I sort of feel like he's being written as a non-villain version of the Mayor from BtVS.
Final note: this is basically the only new show I'm bothering to follow at this point this year. TV time is very rare for me at the moment.
