    Man, I loved that arc. I had all of Vol. 2 up till the Midnight Sons crossover. Then stopped since priorities in life changed.

    I'd want Ketch or Blaze as well, but maybe Marvel's saving them? Personal bias would say they'd be more marketable down the line maybe?

    No, they could have used Jonny Blaze if the wanted, but felt Robbie Reyes would work better for the story they wanted to tell and that they could change him as needed, with out the baggage that comes with a 40+ year old superhero. 'Agents of SHIELD' Ghost Rider Could Have Been Johnny Blaze

    Which is fine with me as it still allows either Netflix or the movie division to utilize either Johnny or Dan later. Considering they're all possessed by different spirits there's nothing stopping this.

    Figured it was because of Ghost Rider which is not surprising if that was the case.

    Ahhh.. yeah, that does make sense, tho it wouldn't have bothered me to have a 40ish character at all.

    I liked the GR bits and thought they were CG'd pretty well, really loved the flaming skull, and Daisy looking for him was fine, not to enthused about the rest, but did like the ending with May and Colson. Creepy. :)

    I think the middling ratings article was a day after and only took into account those who watched it when it aired. The second report seems to be more recent and takes streaming and DVRing into account as it takes longer to gather that info as I understand it.

    Was kidding a bit... the 'topics' are slightly different, just get tired of all the click bait, which really doesn't matter, either we liked it or we didn't... we know the so called critics/reviewers rarely agree with many 'fans' anyway.

    True enough. I tend to ignore the critics/reviewers myself just from the point of why would I care if an article writer for a magazine/website didn't like something i liked. If I liked it I liked it and I'll keep watching it. Sometimes I think the critics deliberately try to be negative so to speak just to stir the pot. Especially the internet reviewers.

    I meant 40+ years of storyline baggage and fan expectations, not the character's actual age, unlike the CW shows, AoS doesn't have problems hiring people over 40 in lead roles.

    Aha... I was thinking along the lines of a Nicolas Gage type. :)

    Saw the season premiere.

    Definitely unimpressed with it.

    I think including Ghost Rider seems kind of stupid and I don't feel it meshes well with the show. I just don't. I also worry that they'll blow their entire budget on his special effects and the rest of the show will suffer.
    I'm alright with Skye/Daisy/Quake going rogue and I think they can go somewhere with this, but Coulson no longer being the director is a bad move. I think the changes to the crew and it's hierarchy is a bad move as well.
    I know they need to shake things up to keep it fresh, but this just doesn't feel right to me and I really don't like it.

    I found the pilot fantastic, the first season plodding and boring, but necessary. I found season 2 to be solid, if not great. Season 3 was more of the same of season 2, but this season? I'm not having a lot of hope for it, honestly. Not a big fan of it so far. I'm worried the season will be more of the same of the premiere. *sighs*

    I know, it's a kneejerk reaction, but the premiere sucked. Flat out, it sucked for me.

    Well, at least the team didn't take too long to by into the supernatural.

    The new director definitely seems like he's wound awfully tight.

    What does Daisy want from Robbie???

    So that's what Daisy's trying to do. And now she's pissed him off.

    So it's a whole group of vengeful ghosts. But who could they be after?

    The new director, Jeffery, seems more like a businessman to me.

    Man, I just can't tell with these ghosts.
