It makes the angels cry that I can only apply a single 'like' to that previous post...

I would like to note that though the reference to "Skye Running" was very vague, not a man who saw that episode had any doubt what scene was being referred to. :^)

It finally dawned on me what this show really is, so I made a pic of it:

I loved that Coulson stood in the same way when he blew the door open. Arms crossed; unphased by anything.

I've been stunned that despite (I assume) having more creative creative control than ever this seems to be the most one dimensional Whedon series ever however the last three eps seem to have started a bigger arc that may lead somewhere.

Whedon's shows (With the exception of Firefly) always seem to need a few episodes or even a season to start finding their teeth. I've only seen the first few episodes of Buffy, and if I were to judge it based on that, I'd say it wasn't all that great. But I've also seen one or two of the later episodes, so I know it got there eventually. The fact that this is Marvel and that comes with a built-in audience means Joss will have the time to develop this into something awesome. I see little seeds beginning to grow. I haven't given up on it yet, and I'm enjoying it, even in these early stages...

Didn't mention it before, but I like Marvel's new '3D' logo at the start of the show.

Loved the little nod to 'Dollhouse' in the first couple lines of dialog in Coulson's dream at the end. ;D

I had to look up on the internet to see what the initials meant and what kind of thing that was............I do not read comics.

Don't know the characters name, but at least I know what that thing gives off.....the good and the bad of it.

Thanks Google!

If you are referring to the tube (vague enough so hopefully that isn't considered a spoiler), they've already named one fairly well-known character, I believe that what you're referring to was supposed to be a 'test' for the process (or someone mid-way through the process).  The character they named was:

EDIT: added an additional paragraph at the end, inside the spoiler (marked).

In addition to what Pak wrote, this isn't a JOSS Whedon show.  Yes, he's 'leading the second wave' for Marvel films and helped design and create this, but this is very much a JED Whedon/Maurissa Tancharoen show.  [If it was a Joss show, he would have written and directed the premiere episode, and would do so for any 'major plot point' episodes (e.g. the 'Coulson finds out' episode).  He has neither written nor directed any of them thus far.]  Jed and Maurissa likely have bull sessions with him, throwing out ideas and the three tweaking them, but I doubt he's scouring the scripts for detail (there's not been a single 'Joss-ism' [phrasing/joke] that I can recall in all 14 episodes thus far).

So this series will continue to be far more comparable to Dollhouse than Firefly, Buffy, or Angel.  Dollhouse, as Pak said about 'pure' Joss shows, also took a while (til the end of the first season, actually) to get enough groundwork set to actually get into anything of serious depth (unfortunately for Dollhouse, most people had bailed on it by that point).  At this point, Agents is getting deeper (into emotional depth, as well as Marvel history/characters) than ever as it goes on.  By the end of this season I have no doubt there will be some serious - and seriously deep - shit hitting the fan. ;D
