Goofs

The license plate on the Corvette, California "681PCE" is yellow characters on a black background. It should be yellow characters on a blue background, as the color scheme was changed in 1969 when California was running out of AAA000 numbers and started to produce plates in the 000AAA number range.

Quotes

Skye: You seem nervous Agent Ward.
Grant Ward: I'm calling to mind my training. There's no way I'm gonna reveal classified secrets to a girl who's hell-bent on taking us down.
Skye: Have you ever killed anyone?
Grant Ward: Yes, a few. High-risk targets. But they were terrible people who were trying to murder nice people. And I didn't feel good afterwards.
Skye: And does your grandmother know about these things?
Grant Ward: [voice breaking] Gramzy?

Another Whedon masterpiece...
25 September 2013 | by (France) – See all my reviews

So it will be cancel pretty soon ! :(

You take away Marvel, Whedon, and the expectations, and you have one of the best pilot for a large public TV show in the last 5-6 years.

It begins "Alias" like, with the story reuniting with the marvel movies ! Character introduction is OK, and I agree that the pilot could have been 80mn. Many of the actors are OK too, with one way over the other, and another one a little above.

But as always, it's the mix of convention with smart-ass jokes, and the background of a geekie fantasy, that got me. This is really easy and nice to watch. Maybe not the best TV show of the last 3 years, but an anticipated future guilty pleasure !
