I like the show a lot. Hayley Atwell is great, and the show handles the period reasonably well. I do think they made a mistake by not starting off with her creating SHIELD, but this is only the first story arc, so I forgive them.

Unless it causes the show to be cancelled. Then I do not forgive them.

I suspect the show will do very well on DVD and Netflix/Amazon, because it's clearly designed as an 8-episode arc. If you haven't already, give it some love.

If anyone from ABC/Marvel is reading this: add a hunky black guy to the cast. My suggestion is a private eye who had been in the army. No, people who know less about race than they think they do, that would not be inappropriate. There's a strong argument that Sam Spade was inspired by a black PI: Finding Marlowe: Did this man inspire two of noir's iconic fictional detectives?
