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.

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 !
