    Third episode was great now they just need to keep going with their own trend instead of relying on the Avengers for plot lines.

    For the longest, I couldn't find the word to describe this show. It's like a TV version of Spy Kids really. It's painfully enjoyable to watch. You know it's SHIELD and somewhere in this universe are other heroes like The Avengers so you want to watch it, but my goodness. Arrow and Supernatural are still the best in my book. Sleepy Hollow is shaping up nicely too.

    I only watched the first episode so far and wasn't that impressed. I didn't care for the main characters much, thought the lead male actor was kinda lame, and the female actress who plays the hacker character to be kinda annoying. I hope the 2nd & 3rd episodes are better.

    So far I am somewhat pleased with the show. I like the characters and their interaction with each other but the storyline so far has been subpar. I hope that they can bring it all together.

    i don't hate it too much but I don't love it either, I hope things get more interesting, but I mean this is a disney owned franchise, what can you except from a studio that caters to kids

    the name doesn't give one hope nor does the drama since there isn't any. It's all campy with Tech.
    Besides that I like the characters however it needs to be like 24 or BSG in quality. I watched the second and third episode and they were good, just hope it gets better, if not then it's a loss cause. It might end up like Firefly- one season.

    Disney should get real writers or get the same writers from the marvel animation series from Disney XD, like Spiderman, hulk the agents of smash, or the avengers assemble. Or get the same guys who did the films.

    And it sucked. Badly.
    Seriously, I can't believe they would try to justify bad episodes by having SLJ in one episode for 5 minutes..
