41182 Hi, J.B. Welcome to the group. I think you hit the nail on the head with the characters in most TV/books. I've noticed that some seem like your regular card-board types too, rather than complex, deep characters that have many layers to them.
41182 I think my favourite Fitz line from the entire series has been "Science beotch". the delivery was just brilliant.

41182 Their DVR ratings are good, and they're winning in the key demographics too. I think ABC and Disney execs are also a bit more lenient with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. because it's a Marvel property that's tied into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, provided the ratings don't fall down a steep hill, it should be okay.
41182 I still like Melinda May (and Coulson, of course). But all the characters have some sort of appeal in one way or another. Totally agree, Skye has grown quite nicely over the last two seasons, and definitely Ward totally deserved what he got (and thensome).

41182 James Spader was the perfect choice for Ultron, IMO. Spine-tingling and chilling in parts. His work on The Blacklist is creepy enough, with Ultron he really kicks things up a notch. I can't wait to see the film.

41182 I have a general rule not to judge the series by the pilot episode (as well as the first few episodes after) unless the series is THAT bad, which is rare. The thing there is there's usually changed between the pilot episode and the episodes that follow (sometimes significant changes, like cast/characters), and the cast and crew are still new to the characters and the whole show so they're still finding their feet, so have to allow for that here. I first watched a couple of episodes, then stopped watching (got too busy), then binge-watched the first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in its entirety over the break, and yeah. They couldn't mention a lot of stuff in earlier episodes because of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but once that was released, the show has really kicked it into high gear. I hope it sticks around for a good few more years.

41182 Hi! Welcome to the group. :-)
Very much looking forward to what Joss Whedon does next.

41182 I've finished reading it a bit ago. It's one of my book club's selections for October. Great read. The author has interviewed a lot of people who worked/work with joss as well. There's a few new things for even the die hard fans. Reading the biography made me like joss Whedon even more (didn't think that was possible).

41182 Hi Michael! Welcome to the group! Whedon's dialogue is part of his charm and style, indeed.

Have you had a chance to get and read Joss Whedon's biography yet?

41182 I think the point of it was to be a fannish love story of sorts. I wonder if they're going to come out with a second one.

41182 This is a discussion thread about Joss Whedon: The Biography

Releasing August 1st, although Amazon says the book is already available.

The synopsis is: From the cult favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which netted four million viewers per episode, to the summer blockbuster The Avengers, which amassed a box office of $1.5 billion, Joss Whedon has made a name for himself in Hollywood for his penchant for telling meaningful, personal tales about love, death, and redemption even against the most dramatic and larger-than-life backdrops. This biography follows his development from a creative child and teenager who spent years away from his family at an elite English public school, through his early successes—which often turned into frustrating heartbreak in both television (Roseanne) and film (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)—to his breakout turn as the creator, writer, and director of the Buffy television series. Extensive, original interviews with Whedon’s family, friends, collaborators, and stars—and with the man himself—offer candid, behind-the-scenes accounts of the making of groundbreaking series such as Buffy, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse, as well as new stories about his work with Pixar writers and animators during the creation of Toy Story. Most importantly, however, these conversations present an intimate and revealing portrait of a man whose creativity and storytelling ability have manifested themselves in comics, online media, television, and film.
41182 Yeah. I kept going with different friends who haven't seen it yet at that point. And sometimes I went alone. Because I needed to. Lol. It was my happy place. Watched it and focused on different elements each time, like music, different characters, camera work, etc. I don't usually frequent cinema that much, especially for the same movie.
41182 I got the BluRay the moment it was released, specifically for the Joss Whedon commentary. I've watched the movie in cinema alone and with different friends 16 times when it first came out, and I don't normally do that with movies. Need to watch the movie again soon, it's been awhile...

I wish they would've done an official novelisation of the film though.

41182 Gosh, I really need to do a Buffy marathon, soon.
41182 Haha. I see what you did there. We can always discuss all the characters from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. then. :-)

41182 Mal & Jayne for the men. Zoe for the women. Not that the other characters are any worse. Each of them have something unique/interesting about them. Would've loved to see what was up with Shepherd Book (although there is a graphic novel
Serenity The Shepherd's Tale (Serenity, #3) by Joss Whedon
that looks into his backstory.
