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

Grant Ward: Director Fury faked your death - to motivate the Avengers.
Maria Hill: Well, the death of a common ally is a particulary team builder.
Phil Coulson: Plus, it wasn't much of a stretch. I stopped breathing for about 40 seconds.
Maria Hill: Eight. It gets longer every time you tell it.

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 !
