In this episode of the podcast, we find out the backstory for one of our favorite Agents of SHIELD, Melinda May! We also get a lot of discussion about God? And forgiveness? In a superhero action show?
Join Ben and Daniel as they talk about:
* Canadians love Agents of SHIELD! How do we know? Well, from Crave Online's article: “Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Is Canada's Number One Program”
* Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is Tuesday's #1 TV show this season with Adults 18-49 based on original telecasts, beating NBC's The Voice by 4% (4.9 rating vs. 4.7 rating). From Futon Critic's article: “Live + 7 Day Ratings: ABC's “S.H.I.E.L.D.” Soars 73%, Hitting a New High in TV Playback for the 2nd Straight Week”
* A discussion of the episode titles so far, and the breadth of meaning for some of them.
* The themes of the story can all be wrapped up in a single word: REPAIRS!
* Would this episode have been a better tie-in to Thor: The Dark World?
* The big problem: is Hannah a telekinetic? Or is Hannah haunted? Some talk about Hannah, her problem, her crisis of faith, and the actor portraying her.
* This is an action show, but there is a lot of talk about religion, the nature of God, forgiveness.
* Skye! The voice or reason? The heart of the team?
* Melinda May has things she needs to deal with. We've known it for a long time, but now we find out what it is.
* Fitz and Simmons and their PRANKS!
* May & Ward! What's going on here?
Not a lot of feedback this episode, but it is AWESOME. From theories about how Melinda may might be a guest star in the Jessica Jones Netflix series to insight on Joss Whedon's style of TV, we have some awesome listeners!
