Notes on S.H.I.E.L.D.

image

1. If that’s the roster for Season 2 above, have at it. Three ladies to two fellas, and one of the fellas is Agent Triplet.

2. There has never been a more welcome return than Patton “Billy Koenig” Oswalt. H/T to the A/V: I hope they kill him every week.

3. There has never been a more welcome blowing-up-of-a-dude than Bill “Crazy Eyes” Paxton.

4. It was an episode light on feels, but don’t get me started about when Fury called Coulson an Avenger. Oh shit here I go again

5. Suck it, haters, I think Skye’s the best character on the show and Chloe Bennett’s the best actress. That said, I won’t turn down a lot of Hermione/Trip action next season.

6. One presumes Agent Carter may now preoccupy itself entirely with the early, idealistic foundation of S.H.I.E.L.D. - “protection” - while Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. deals with Protection 2.0. (Did I mention I am really looking forward to Agent Carter.)

7. “You were never on top.”

8. “I know what it does.”

Well how about that. Getting it done, internet.

Let it go, Loki.

The Toys, 2013

Once a year I look at my favourite toys from the preceding year. When I stopped buying a bunch of toys annually, and kept it to a relative handful (no wait: an actual handful!), this started getting less of a “top ___ list” and more of a “here’s what I did” list. Still, I’ve ranked them in order of awesomeness, because toys are awesome. There’s even a bit of psychological justification below, for those of you shaking your heads and wondering what my mother did wrong.

#1: Hot Toys MMS 188 The Dark Knight Rises Selina Kyle

It’s kind of a pick-‘ems in the top slots here but I think Catwoman edges out Loki by a nose. (She has a lovely one.) This must be the only instance of rooted hair in my whole collection, which is (admittedly) a bit funky and will probably only become funkier over time. But Selina is blessed by the presence of her fancy eyewear and goggles, which do a good job of keeping those runaway locks clamped down; and the Anne Hathaway sculpt is fucking phenomenal. The only real problem is the price point, which is becoming Hot Toys’ major problem anyway. I think I paid $240 here? For a figure with a single accessory (Bat-pod not included)? That’s way on the high side. For comparison, the identically-equipped Black Widow from Iron Man 2 ran $140, just three years ago.

The natural expectation was that it would be Marvel vs. DC for control of the comic book movie universe; but with DC shitting the bed so spectacularly in the matter of setting up any non-Bat franchises, it’s actually gonna be Marvel vs. Fox - fought entirely with Marvel characters. Suits me fine; competition makes for a healthy marketplace. Here’s hoping Marvel never folds the Fox properties back under their umbrella.
