Skye mentions The Dude from the Big Lebowski (1998) who is played by Jeff Bridges. Jeff Bridges also played Obadiah Stane/Iron Monger in Iron Man (2008) which is part of the same universe as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. See more »


After examining a fried brain, Simmons says it's been hit by 2,000 mega Joules of electricity, and notes that is almost double the power of a lightning bolt. Albeit there is no real minimum or maximum power for a lightning bolt. All lightning bolts vary wildly in power so the concept of double the power of a lightning bolt makes no sense. See more »

I wanted to like this show.
17 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

I tried to like this show, I really did and I gave it 6 episodes to convince me it was worth my time, but the sad truth hit me with this episode. FZZT. I read the other user reviews on this episode *before* I dived in to watch it, as I was debating already whether to continue watching or not. There were 3 user reviews and they were all glowing with positivity! "9/10 This is the episode we've been waiting for" touted one and I thought, alright, I'll give it one more chance to bring the goods.

The sad truth is that this show is boring, the characters are trite and the plots are riddled with holes and cheap McGuffins to push things forward. The two science nerd clichés really grate my nerves every episode so far and Ep 6 is no exception to this or the other criticisms that I have made. The opening sequence is supposed to be scary and at least it tries to set itself up a little like an episode of the X files, but it just falls flat. It doesn't get better after the opening sequence. It's a yawn festival.

I am done with this show as I see no reason to devote more of my time to it, when there are so many shows of far higher quality available.
