When Maximus shaved Medusa's hair, there was no guard on the clippers, which should've taken her hair down to the skin. Yet her hair was half an inch long. It was also uniformly shaved, which it would be doubtful that he would've taken the time to do so. See more »
Eventually, the universe will grow darker until black holes dominate the cosmos, and everyone, everything you've ever known will be sucked into the vast nothingness. No one will be left to observe this, no one left to care.
This is why nobody invites you to do their birthday toasts.

As far as pilots go, I found this lukewarm at best. The few familiar faces in the ensemble cast (Swan, Leung, Rheon) didn't do much to elevate this episode much above the pedestrian, unfortunately.
Action? Nothing much to speak of. Plot/intrigue? Rudimentary. Writing/dialogue? A catalogue of "You-should-have-been-mine" and "How-very-dare-you" clichés. CGI/FX? Embarrassing. Queen Medusa's hair looks like it was copied and pasted from Jessica in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?", Gorgon's hooves look like he picked up some theater prop hairy pants at the dollar store, Iwan Rheon stars as Ramsay Bolton starring as Maximus and proceeds to "Reek" the entire population of Attilan, and our parting impression of the mighty Black Bolt is essentially as a mute in a suit, and a hapless one at that. Lockjaw is the Royal Family's teleporter, but serves mainly as comic relief.
Being a fan of Marvel doesn't save this from being dead in the water. It feels like various studio execs are simply milking Marvel for all it's worth, adapting any team or hero possible to the screen in order to turn a profit, with scant regard for their craft. I'll slog through this season, but with exceedingly low expectations, and am unsurprised to learn that it never made it to a Season 2.
