Stunt Granny Conversation: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. A Few Episodes Later

my-god-has-a-hammer

Last week Kevin and I started chatting about Agents of Shield and it ended as soon as it began. See neither of us were that up for talking about this show. Can you blame us? It has been a gigantic disappointment so far.

Jeremy:  Shield convo next Wednesday. You will watch again. For some reason.

Kevin:  Hot damn, another episode. Really?

Jeremy:  I keep waiting for it to get better.

Kevin:  I wanted to wait until we did the review but it’s not a big point. It seemed like it moved in the right direction episodes 4, 5 & 6 but that one this week was a disaster

Jeremy:  Yeah. Woof. They need to focus on Coulson. Then bring in back stories for others.

Kevin:  How about just concentrating at all?

Jeremy:  Well yeah. He is the only character the audience knows and are already invested. Delve in to him and through that you can bring the other people in. They are doing that with May.

Kevin:  They have given a feature episode to each team member but I still barely know them. Fits & Simmons (giggle, giggle) went to college together yet he isn’t banging her hot ass.

Jeremy:  They are trying to make Skye the down to earth character but she is annoying and can’t act. As I put on Facebook, she needs to be in her underwear at all times until she improves or they kill her. I will say, I liked that Fitz wasn’t a pussy in the field. It actually added to his character. He is a Shield agent after all and nit some bumbling nerd.

This is where we left things on Friday afternoon. Fast forward to Wednesday the 20th and we start talking about last night’s episode and tying in the previous conversation.

Jeremy:  So after last night’s show how you feeling about Shield?

Stunt Granny Conversation: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Skye, Leo Fitz, Agent Coulson, Melinda May

Skye, Jemma Simmons, Leo Fitz, Agent Coulson, Melinda May and Grant Ward

Jeremy:  So caught up in agents of shield. Um it better improve. Having a hard time giving a shit about it.

Kevin:  Yeah, watched episode 3 last night. They’ve got 3 episodes to hook me or else it’s getting the axe. Just terrible.

Jeremy:  Was that the rookie spy one? Everything is too neat and clean. The two scientist kids are worthless.

Kevin: Hacker girl got sent into the party in Malta in that episode. Only positive part of the show was her running after her dress had gotten wet.
Jeremy:  Yeah. Best part was her tits bouncing all over in her wet dress.
Kevin:  Ha ha ha
Jeremy:  Ha. This should have been our convo! But her subplot makes no sense. Of course there is a romance blah blah. I was expecting it to be straight forward at first then get in to things. This weeks makes no sense so far. But only ten minutes in.
Kevin:  We can still make it a convo. Now I feel the need to look up her name. Her name is Skye just so we can keep things straight.

Jeremy: I am giving this week a chance. I don’t count the pilot episode. The show did receive a full season order so maybe they can start writing for longer arcs. At the least clean up the logic.
Kevin: They need to clean up the characters first. They’re all so one dimensional. Fighting guy, hacker girl, wacky scientists, woman “dragged” back into the fight and head guy who was last dead in the Avengers movie.
Jeremy: Coulson is the only interesting character. Mainly because he is the only sheet of paper with writing on it.

I know his name and Fitz and Simmons. Get it? It sounds like one name. I have no idea which one is which.
Kevin: Oh my lord, I didn’t get it. That is so stupid. They don’t understand that the wacky scientist needs to be partially human rather than just super smart.
Jeremy: Yes it is poor writing. One dimension. Well wait; they have accents. My bad.
Kevin: Accents make it all better! We’re an international team now. Look, we’ve got an Asian woman who flies the plane. Get it because Asian people don’t know how to drive.
Jeremy: The stoic Asian. Good call. The hunky loner struggling with a team but is so dreamy the outsider falls for him.
Kevin:  Always need to have a woman hard ass these days so, oh my lord, her name is Melinda May? Could you make it sound any more white?
May as well make her name Yu Wang so that they can make door jokes.
Jeremy: So should we expect there to be the sassy black chick or angry black guy? Or do we get a comedic relief black person? Seemed to be one of the only stereotypes left . “Damn that science is whack yo.”
