  • Inspired/based on the Green Arrow comic books

Some things mentioned along the way:

Bevan jumps in & asks a question:

The Arrow of The Comic books is very political & heavily leaning liberal, social, racialist, knowing that Smallville’s version of the character had no political affiliations, How is the CW’s version presented? Do they make him Political?

& reminds Roberto of:

Question for Bevan:

Does this TV story remind you of any other comic books?

The part where Bob gives the group a choice between sharing another great show to watch or talking about a brand new mediocre show. Their baser human instincts kick in & they attack the weak:

  • Agents Of S.H.E.I.L.D. – ABC – 1 season/2013 – IMDB: 7.2 – 27 600 users

Each member of the group goes through their reasons for why the show should be great & why they ‘really, really want to like it”

He adds that Netflix is developing 4 new Marvel Universe Adult oriented series in 2014

Then Stephanie takes it further by questioning the shows formula? It has all the individual elements to make a great show but it reads like a:

  • Charlie’s Angels – ABC – 5 seasons – IMDB: 6.4 – 3772 users

The part where Bob & J-Dean agree & add a lack of chemistry in the ensemble cast:

Then J-Dean throws everyone & the show under the bus – his bottom line – please give him a reason to go back.

Then Bob segues into a much better written & imagined show about similar bigger picture ideas:

  • Crossing Lines – Rai 2/NBC – 1 season – 2nd/2014 – IMDB: 7.0 – 3119 users

QFL:
Are we mistaken about Agents Of S.H.E.I.L.D.? Send us your Opinion!

Maybe it’s our expectations from the Whedonverse , The Marvel Universe or the S.H.E.I.L.D. Universe

Bob interjects Crazy TV Talk exists because of shows like this:

  • ‘If you only have 3 hours of TV watching why waste it on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. when you can enjoy The Almighty Johnson’s or Arrow”
