  1. Not technically as good as those youtube videos (and I so want to add some rum/vodka to that hot cocoa and thanks for posting them, btw) but this article was posted today about Disney buying up all of FOX Entertainment:
  2. It's also airing during the Holiday season. IMO, it would've been better if this show aired after the Holiday season (like in previously planned January airing) but apparently, they wanted to premiere the show on literally the first Friday of Dec. Also, I guess ratings don't matter IF Disney is forcing ABC to not even consider to cancel this show. So, I say big deal.
  3. The date on that article (or at least the one that I could find) says it was published on 9/22/2017 and Inhumans is already aire several episodes since then.
  4. That would be really depressing IF that did happen. I mean right now The Orville is better Trek than Star Trek Discovery.
  5. Or simply whoever took them didn't want Fitz and/or Fitz escapes from them before they go up to space.
  6. I would say that Game of Thrones is one of those shows where they can literally get away with dragons.
  7. This to me just speaks of what they wanted it both ways. I doubt that Victoria Hand really cared if Fitz went missing and/or dead, back in THE HUB, BUT the show just kept on insisting that Fitz is some kind of special engineer since the time of Howard and Tony Stark. Also, that TWS tie-in (the one about Fury using one of Fitz's devices) always grates at me for some reason. I don't know but I feel like that was so shoehorn (and yes that had to be after the fact that the movie came out and I could swear that Fury said that there were multiple people that invented it and/or never bothered to mention who made it. BUT the show wanted Fitz to be the sole inventor of it, which was stated on the show). Yes, I do know that it is very subjected in nature and that in any transition to any media there are going to be changes. But in Robbie's case, it felt like they took the character and just totally rewrote him. He really had nothing to share with the Robbie Reyes from the comics but only in name, he drove a classic car and his family. Hell, in the comics his Uncle is really a fucked up evil person but in this version, it's implied that Eli got corrupted by the Darkhold and that was why he was evil. As with wanting it both ways- yeah they have been like this since Season 1, IMO. Overall, I feel like it's just lazy writing and/or poor setup that is causing this. Like how you pointed out that Gonzalez's character and also Mace. And I think that they totally wanted us to not trust Mace, and to have all the main characters go, "yeah that guy I don't trust" BUT why? ANd then later not only do they trust Mace it turns out that he seemed to be more eagar to rescue/help people than the main characters (all they really cared about were themselves). Yeah, Fitz and Simmons never struck me as people who were deeply in romantic love. I got the friendship part and even the brother and sister part but never the romantic part. I guess people just started to ship them to a point where the showrunners were like, "oh okay we will give them a Will They/Won't They storyline and fill it with angst". Like they didn't know how to hook them up but wanted to because of the shippers (and honestly since when do shows ever listen to shippers? Coming from the Star Trek community that thing was never to be fulfilled by any showrunners- no matter how loud and angry the shippers got- because they will always come back to watch the show in the end). It just feels so loop sided because it's like Fitz has gotten everything he ever wanted- Simmons. While Simmons had to deal with Trip's and Will's death and any concerns she had about dating Fitz was just swept under the rug. Yeah, I would file this under as another thing that the show mishandled and could've done better. Also, I believe that Coulson and May are headed in the same direction. Personally, if they were going to put them together I would've just done it in Season 1 and be done with it. As with the whole ", they are a family" thing kinds of pops up from time to time so that isn't really dead and it is kind of gross when you think about it (which just points as to why they should've never have been paired up in the first place). Also, the angst- way too much angst for a couple that is supposedly a) madly in love and b) soul mates/true lovers (which I think that they are not totally in love with each other but the writers are just forcing them together for the shippers). I have never heard about that but I would like to see a link. It's not that I don't believe you but I just want to see it myself.
  8. On one hand, the cast of characters, that was being featured in an episode, was getting too high and I felt like the writing was having a hard time cramming everyone in. BUT I do agree that Spy's Goodbye shouldn't have even been written and that both Bobbi and Hunter shouldn't have left (and that writing them off to do a pilot episode that was still a toss-up by any means was, in my opinion, wrong and I am glad that Palicki found another acting gig quickly and hey she plays the female lead on The Orville) BUT I do want what is written and shown, on this show, to have some kind of meaning. Spy's Goodbye (for better or for worse) was one of those moments on the show that actually had feeling, in my opinion, and now they are going to ruin it by having Hunter come back onto the show. Personally, they are doing this probably because of fan pressure (like ratings even matter anymore for this show since it's been reported that Disney is protected it from cancellation) and I am just kind of bummed that they would totally rewrite just about anything to get fan reaction.
  9. I don't know. I am not really feeling that much hurt over this ending. I am sad that it is over but I am not really hurting that much. Too much crap happened that made the show just plain bad and it seemed like the writers just didn't have any of their "long-term" plots really thought out. LIke the Royals or even Blackclaw. It always seems like they had ideas but not really any thought out long-term plans for those groups.
  10. Okay, I get that "The Doctor" (being an evil version of Fitz) was part of Hydra (a full fledged member) but just don't buy that having Fitz's father around would've totally changed him. In my opinion, its always there with Fitz- right under the surface waiting to be released.
  11. In a way, I am happy that I don't have to deal with the show's bullshit. Especially over Nick's rape and him raising their rape baby. Also, no more Julliett does feel good but I do miss the Wesen of the week storylines. Even in the later seasons they, for me, were the best part of the show because it exposed more and more of the Wesen world without it being all about Blackclaw and the Royals.
  12. 1. The writing is, in my opinion, weird because at one moment they would try to work really hard and do something like introducing an actual genetics working on mutating transforming other people into Inhumans but then they would do this shit of showing SHIELD's resident engineer doing experiments with DNA samples and/or actual living people. It's like they just don't really care and wanted something that looked cool and/or it sounded cool to them. Overall it just seems that the writers just write out stuff either as a means to see "what sticks" and/or just doesn't care and would want to have things both ways. Like how in Season 1 Coulson's team was supposed to be the team of misfits but instead they had two highly skilled agents- not to mentioned the two supposedly best scientists SHIELD has ever seen, since Howard and Tony Stark. Or that Simmons and Fitz are supposed to be totally out of place when in the filed but they seem like the totally capable person- to the point where somehow Fitz learned how to handle his own in street fighting this season. Overall, to me, it's just the writers wanting it both ways. Which, in my opinion, shows that the writers really don't give a damn about what they write and would write things to please a small core fanbase. I mean as a comic book fan I hate how they would totally change like everything about comic book characters (because to me that says that they really don't like the source material where these characters/concepts come from) and also that they are trying to make us not only like the main characters but to have them be not only the best at SHIELD but like in the whole MCU. 2. We actually had about 3 1/2 (roughly) angsty seasons with Fitz and Simmons. It all started in Season 1 where Fitz didn't have enough courage to tell Simmons he was in love with her BUT he had enough courage to talk to Skye-Daisy (my name for the character because she just has so many names attached to her. And she was introduced to us as Skye and was going by that name as well in Season 1) who was a total stranger to him (aside from the fact that his team just caught her hacking into SHIELD's system and had vowed to "bring them down" through her Raising Tide while also living in a van), at the time, BUT Simmons was like his closets (if not only) friend he ever had for like 10 years by then. Also, I never heard about ABC forcing the showrunners into rushing their relationship? I always thought that it was the online shippers' demands and the fact that they totally screwed up by not only introducing Will but then totally screwed up handling the Will story as well.
  13. But still "The Doctor" was more Dr. Who than Dr. Mengele. Although, I totally agree that they were trying to go Hydra=Nazi with political undertones BUT still "The Doctor" had to be a small wink/nod to Dr. Who.
  14. It could be, but I could swear they were trying for a Dr. Who reference (and also I always assumed that The Master was always the evil version of The Doctor).
  15. I would say only for a free marketing for their more profitable and bigger MCU films. Sadly this show isn't even hit any cultural milestones that other shows- like Firefly and/or Lost has received and the story of them being kept alive because of a parent corporation doesn't sound very well, either, in my opinion.
