Hmmm. Yo-Yo is probably my least favourite character in the show. I'll still watch it though as it's only 6 episodes and the other characters will be in it too.

To he honest I'd much rather have had the spinoff with Bobby and Hunter. I liked their characters.
These are the mini episodes that came out last year, aren't they?

Dunno. My mate sent me a link so I assumed it was something new.

Wouldn't shed a tear if it got cancelled, the Ghost Rider story was total crap and just as the evil AIDA storyline was getting interesting they switch to the framework, which is just another boring "evil parallel universe" storyline. I just don't understand the american obsession with stories like that, they're always a narrative dead end.

Nice little moments in this week's show. Ramping up to a decent finale now.

They certainly are embracing the whole "Matrix" vibe.

The opening to this week in particular with May's slo-mo guns-blazing "flip" & the baddie crashing through the glass window...

Definitely it's raised its game even more with the Agents of Hydra storyline...

I agree. The last few episodes have gone from strength to strength.

Set up very nicely now. The actress who plays Aida is very good.

Yup, the last half of this season has been excellent.

Some rather boring ones mid season but they did set things up nicely.

Aaarrghhh! ... Every time I see this thread update, I fear it's a "Cancellation" announcement.

Don't you dare, ABC! ... Yes, the ratings are **** but that's only because your average US telly viewer are too busy watching the latest Chicago CSI Law & Anatomy procedural show...

Happy to see its renewed as it still has potential but some changes need to be made.

#1 The Fitz/Simmons relationship needs to end; too much will they or won't they ****. For me as soon as this starts up the episode slows right down. We already have a similar situation with Coulson and May and for the most part is done with more humor and believably. Fitz/Simmons comes over as quite pathetic and after 4 seasons enough is enough.

#2 Sick of the Hydra stuff, we had a good run with this but its getting tired and no more Brett Dalton guys dead leave it alone and don't dare try to bring him back into the real world with
just don't you dare.

#3 Need more a few more new inhumans on the team but less of being whiny about having powers I'd like to meet some who actually embraces them and want to help

#4 Enough with SHIELD being easily made the bad guys, done this twice now and that was once more than needed. We need a big event to bring SHIELD back into everyone's good books. Could be something that happens when the Avengers are fighting Thanos leaving the earth unprotected. No reason why the series cannot get in-front of the movies once and a while. It will have to be big though Tagline - Who will save the Earth when its heroes are gone? . It'll have to be up to SHIELD and possibly a few decent villains to save the rest of us.

#5 This should be the last season as is, its time for a major shakeup at the end; and that means all the main cast should be killed saving the Earth from the Villains they recruited.

#6 Nick Fury needs to come back and either kick ass or get killed and stay dead.

#7 Lots to pack in this season so go to 2-hr episodes over a shorter run and absolutely "NO FILLER" episodes this time.

#8 In the final act of the final episode have whats left of the avengers return and see the destruction left behind - Cameos from the actual actors (would cost a bit) but finally ties the series off with the movies.
