The info given about San Juan, Puerto Rico is accurate. Even the legend regarding the "Garita del Diablo" is correct. Still today, no one dares to get inside of it although it's closed to the public anyway. Also the place marks exactly one of the corners of the Bermuda Triangle. See more »
Colonel Talbot's rank insignia (colonel's eagles) are worn diagonally on his shoulder boards. They are properly worn vertically, with the eagles' beaks pointing straight down. See more »
What does S.H.I.E.L.D. stand for, Agent Ward?
Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.
And what does that mean to you?
It means someone really wanted our initials to spell out "S.H.I.E.L.D." It means we're the line between the world and the much weirder world. We protect people from news they aren't ready to hear. And when we can't do that, we keep them safe.

I'm not sure why some of the reviewers have already dismissed this show. I wonder what people expect from a pilot but I think there are too many expectations based on The Avengers (and other superhero films). It's a TV show so there's going to be a lot of differences with respect to pace, storytelling and character build-up. Don't expect an hour packed full of action like a film.
In my opinion the pilot was a really strong start to what looks like will be a really good TV show. It's obvious a lot of money has been spent on the show because the special effects are better than the majority of films. The cast has been well selected as the acting was strong and no characters looked out of place. Even from the first episode you can start to warm and empathize with most of the characters. Visually it looks great. For fans of the superhero genre this is a sure winner (if you leave your expectations at the door). I watched it with three friends and we're all really looking forward to the next installment.
Nice work Joss, keep it coming!
