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.

Phil Coulson: Hey. Did you hear the one about the guy who's afraid of flying?
Grant Ward: [Absolute seriousness] I've done a night jump into a drop zone under heavy fire sir. I can handle it.
Phil Coulson: That was a... joke. The first part of a... I'm not gonna tell it now.

Meh could be so much more but fun I suppose?
25 September 2013 | by winzentweenSee all my reviews

OK so like you I am a big super hero fan and that means Marvel as well as DC and that means avengers and ironman and Thor and all the rest. It also means the excellent ARROW and the good no ordinary family RIP. Also Buffy was a super hero and I loved her and angel who was a anti hero monster lol Do i love AGENTS OF SHIELD AVENGERS GODS AND MONSTERS UNIVERSE HEROES SUPER CHA CHING FRANCHISE America FOR EVER etc. show? It is OK so far.

Sadly OK is not OK for a pilot especially of this pedigree so lets talk HEROES. Is this better than HEROES? NO no in any way is it better in the pilot than any episode in season 1 or maybe 2 or 3. Is it better than ARROW pilot? NO WAY 100% or Smallville? Nope.... So what is it like in quality then???? It is like No Ordinary Family but without a strong cast.

We have a very wooden Jock type and some very bad UK types who resemble jar jar lol and some generic cliché kung fu Chinese lady (who is a goo actress from other shows wasted here) and then we have some hot teen babe who is just annoying but hot so meh and then we have the parents.

Agent C and Coby from that comedy show and they rock as they are film stars so Im wondering why the show is not just about them...and maybe the hot new girl? who could become less annoying???

Time will tell but it is no ARROW and no HEROES but then that is OK if it becomes its own show but currently it HAD NOTHING IN IT which was new or unique or even cool over cheesy.

No villain was established worth any thing to mention and the heroes were mediocre and I never felt that they were a team or the real heroes just less super which I thought the show would be more about.

To soon to call but it currently lacks identity and with this director and writer and franchise...........well all it has is FRIKEN CHARACTER!!!! so for them to lose or drain it or distil it to appeal to everyone (much like CPT America) they have lost something in the process which all good MARVEL and super hero and shows need to survive to season 2.

Arrow has it in spades (amazing show, so much more than this so far). Actually you know what this show reminded me of? THE CAPE LOL as its campy and kind of funny and fun and cheesy but not cool and not clever.

To early to call but will need so much more to be worthy of its legacy. All they need to do is kill off everyone but Agent C and Coby and we have a hot show :D
