As others have said, this show has taken a massive upturn in quality over the last few eps, with the latest Cap2 tie-in being absolutely awesome.

I was seriously close to dropping from episode 2 through to about episode 11 or 12, but really glad I stuck with it.

I could see that twist coming a mile off its shame they have


The show has definitely improved the last few episodes but that might just be down to having Bill Paxton in them who is all sort of awesome

Ep 19 was pretty good too, and my personal favourite, which may OR may not be due to the guest star (with the cello)... sigh!



Splooosh!

not a great episode... felt the main bad guy was a little under-used, and far too easily dispatched of. the momentum is still there though... i liked the tease for next weeks episode.

I started watching this again from the Captain America tie-in after giving up after episode 3 at the start, and whilst it has been mildly entertaining I think it still has a lot of flaws and the writing just isn't very tight.

Logic seems to go out the window without even an after thought.

They're flying around in a giant airplane, and are on the most wanted list with zero real resources on hand anymore and yet they are never troubled by by the American Airforce? Who is fueling the plane? How are they landing somewhere in LA and then are able to leave it completely unattended and go to a diner in town and no one bats an eyelid?

I could just about buy it when they had the whole of SHIELD resources behind them, but they are meant to be outlaws and on the most wanted list.

It completely takes me out of the show.

You should have your answers over the next two weeks (US pace)

It's improved a lot since the CA2 events and episode 20 was probably the best of the season. Only 2 left now and if the rumoured guest stars are true, they should hopefully be good as well.

I think the network should really run with shorter more tightly written seasons rather than string out something over 22 episodes. If the cable channels can run successful shorter seasons of shows, so can the networks. I think this show really suffered from starting all the way back in September and bumbling along until CA2 happened.

Its definitely got better the last few weeks (US Pace) and I'm glad I stuck with it but it does seems to be borrowing from previous Whedon Shows which is possibly no bad thing

If it continues at a level that it's been at over the last half-dozen+ episodes, then that is good news indeed!

I think I'll give the second season a miss after coming back for the last 4-5 episodes this season.

It's mildly entertaining, but that's about it. Without Shield behind them, this is just a bit silly.

I thought that Hydra was dealt a near fatal blow in Captain America, but it appears that they are continuing to operate with impunity and with no Shield they are doing whatever they want. How the hell is a small Scooby gang meant to confront that?

They need to make another dramatic change to in show universe for this to have any credibility. Perhaps the guest star in the final can direct things down a more interesting path.

This week's (US transmission) episode was worth it alone for the great "Watch out for the incoming large file upload" gag.
