Week three, and what started as a recap/review series is turning into an inquest. Why isn't this show working, and can the cast and creators turn it around?
This was the first episode to introduce an established comics character to the Marvel movieverse, and it felt like a slight improvement, but I said that last week as well. The show is improving by such tiny increments that (a) it'll take forever to get to where it needs to be to sustain interest, and (b) it may not be improving at all -- I may just be acclimating.
I expect I wasn't alone in my disappointment among long-time Marvel readers when the cast and characters for ABC's Marvel Universe-set TV show Agents of SHIELD were revealed and there was no Clay Quatermain, no Jimmy Woo, no Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine. Was this show going to use any Marvel characters to build its world?
The synopsis for the third episode of the show finally confirms that it will. 'The Asset' features the first alter ego of an established character, and hints at his transformation into his super-villainous self.
