    Lol at the rename. Guess they thought calling it Yo-Yo sounded silly.

    because yo-yo was her REAL name in the comics ... but that was too stupid for television, so they renamed her elena and used yo yo as a codename

    I was not excepting this to happen. Some more stuff like would be nice at times down the road.

    If this was an hour-long thing, I would have waited for another time to watch. If it was a half hour thing, I would watch it.

    Being 3-6 minutes? I’m good with that. I doesn’t feel like enough time to tell a story like that, but I can’t wait to see what comes out of it.

    And looking at the app, I think I can see why they might have gone that way. Most of its reviews are either 1 or 5 stars. :lol 

    Except this is being made by Marvel, who has done a great job with there stuff right now (compared to DC's attempts). If Marvel was letting Machinima make this, then there would be cause for concern.

    Agreed. I taught this'd be fun initially but the 3 -6 minutes an ep runtime is a killer. Vixen was dreadful simply because it had no time to tell a story.

    You know even if this isn't that great, at least it was nice to see a character like this headline their own series. Now if only somebody could give something like this to Hawkeye or Black Widow.

    Plus, I think we should look at this like one of those One-Shots split into smaller parts that work to make a whole. And considering the 6 episodes could have 6 minutes each, this could be a 36 minute episode. Enough time to possibly tell a story in that amount of time, and anything left unanswered could be addressed in SHIELD if need be.

    Ya know I've re-thought it, and while it certainly won't be anything amazing, this could be fun. Unlike Vixen, Slingshot is a character we've already been introduced to and has been developed. And from the look of things, the supporting cast of this will just be characters from S.H.I.E.L.D. instead of new characters. Thus, the show won't have to try to introduce and develop a new cast and storyline, but just give us a fun little adventure with ones we already know.

    It's a fun short series that made me like Yo Yo even more. :)  Hope we can get more web series like this for the other characters of the MCU.

    I watched the first episode while I was on break at work. I could barely hear half the episode because I was trying to keep the volume down.

    I think the Present Day stuff in the first episode has to be after Winter Finale since Daisy seems to be back with SHIELD here. Her mission does make sense since we that never got taken care of.

    Say what? Oh well, I guess I downloaded the ABC app for nothing then. I'll hold on to it anyways and just watch this from there in the future.

    Hawkeye next please. And maybe make the episodes a bit longer for a guy like him?
