Most people have been complaining about the series dragging, but then again, they've been expecting mini-movies and not a SERIES. Joss Whedon's direction and this fabulous casts' acting showcase a story with surprising twists, all sorts of odd and unexpected connections between the characters and an over-arcing story that leaves you wondering what's going to happen next. As a writer myself, I have to applaud Whedon and the writers on this show for their ability to leave you wondering "what the hell did I just see?" almost every other episode. The actors are gelling into a fine ensemble, and Clark Gregg leads them through a maze of plot complications all tied into the movies that are part of the universe as well., Fine job, folks, fine job.
I did buy season 1 on bluray and love the show immensely. Season 2 was just as good as the first. I do have two issues though. First is price. Most television shows can be purchased on bluray for $40 - $45. This is a ridiculous price. I realize this is not Amazon as they offer products at the best price they can based upon distributors pricing. Second is the lack of a digital copy as almost all movies and TV on bluray come with a digital copy. I am not certain who is responsible for these inflated prices and shortcomings but my suspicions are that it is Disney since they own the Marvel brand. Probably an attempt to get customers to purchase a second time from a digital retailer. For this reason I have decided to purchase no more of these products until these practices are changed and would urge other customers to do the same. If sales decline Disney will get the message.
So many people today are saying "yeah, season 1 was bad, but the show gets better. You should watch it." But what was really so bad about season one?
People who never watched the show complain that they just casually brought back Coulson from his death in the film "The Avengers" with no explanation. I take that back, perhaps they saw the first episode. How Coulson was brought back to life is one of the show's subplots early in the season - we are told what happened gradually (just as such a thing would be puzzled out in real life) , and eventually entire episodes are dedicated to just this part of the story. There's nothing casual about it.
Perhaps people didn't like the show because it didn't live up to their expectations. Maybe they figured it would be as good or better than Firefly, since Joss Whedon is involved with the show. Well, that's simply impossible. Firefly is and forever more shall be the best gorram show in all of existence, so,...
