Are you serious? They're off for weeks, they put out ONE new episode, and then they're off again until next month?? They're not just shooting themselves in the foot, they're cutting that foot OFF! With the slow start that they got, and shedding viewers along the way, you'd think they'd put more thought into building viewership momentum.

I have to agree with whoever said that it seems like DC and Marvel agreed that one gets the TV market, and the other gets the movie market. Marvel does great films, but they need a far-better TV strategy.

It's probably not Marvel making that decision, but the networks wanting to save the episodes for Sweeps week and/or avoid broadcasting new stuff during the Olympics when viewership will be fragmented.

Helps a tad leaving a bit of a cliffhanger.  It was a quite good episode for once.  Simmons throwing herself on a grenade for one.  Splitting Team Action from Team Geek.  May was AWESOME.  Don't let the lady get mad.  You thought Hulk gets testy.

I liked the Abomination reference this week, too.

Yeah, a lot of it is down to the olympics followed on closely by sweeps week. that's the same reason NBC rushed Leno out the door 6 months before the official end of his contract, to book end the tonight show handover around the olympics and then sweeps.

Glad I'm not the only one who caught that...

Since they knew when the Olympics would be starting, you'd think they could have arranged things so that they would show more than one stinkin' new episode before the break. I can see their wanting to stop on the cliffhanger, but still....

Poor Clark Gregg. I wonder how many people say "Tahiti" to him, out of the blue, just to see if he'll say, "It's a magical place."

Well, at least I feel a little better after looking around on the internet knowing that I'm not the only one trying to figure out what Coulson saw in the Guest House.

Not a bad episode tonight.

I am thinking
Spoiler for Hidden:
Deathlook
needs a better look though.

I saw it quite clearly, you saw correct.

Not a bad episode tonight.

I'm wondering if the name of Sif's old lover matched the name of the warrior who was double a Thor from back in an old "Tales of Asgard" story.

I've always liked Clark Gregg's acting as Coulson, but his reactions to all of this serum stuff strikes me as odd, out of character or just bad acting or writing.

In T.A.H.I.T.I. when storming the Guest House the agents shot two guards, one of them named Bob... could that have been a nod towards Hydra?

I think the actress who plays Skye confirmed it was a Kree.

Also they've signed Amy Acker to play Phil's "cellist" for an episode.  High five Phil!

:rant mode engaged:

Okay, the folks at Marvel need a lesson in terminology, since Hand, in tonight's episode, made the same mistake that Fury made, in talking to Captain America, in "The Avengers".

Before a mission, when you give the mission team the information that you have, and tell them what you think they can expect, that is a BRIEFING. A DEBRIEFING only happens AFTER the mission, when the mission team tell you how the mission actually went, what they saw, etc. It's so that you can figure out how good your intel is.

I'm thoroughly tired of hearing supposedly-professional characters call the PRE-mission meeting a "debriefing" or "debrief". Come on, Hollywood - LEARN SOMETHING about what you're portraying. Learning's really not that scary.

Carry on.

Tonight's episode wasn't too bad.

Though I think the best part of it was the kid-version of the Captain America Trailer. :D
