Bumping Fitz Up The Death Watch List: He’s got an endearing thing for monkeys and a certain kind of sandwich. That puts him in enough danger as it is.

But then there’s this. Whedon won’t allow this sort of adorable nonsense to continue.

He Is…The Least Interesting Man In The World: So we got a Simmons-centric episode two weeks ago and it was great. But this Grant episode falls flat. Why? Because he’s extremely shapely cardboard that’s why.

Not even a haunting backstory can animate him.

Putting The Ass In Asgard: The episode did feature the amazing Peter MacNicol as a stealth Asgardian. You know I could listen to MacNicol talk about gods all day.

The Most Compelling Thing Grant Has Done: He may be shapely cardboard, but at least he’s shapely cardboard with good taste.

If this is how they fight, imagine how they do other things.

COULSON IS A DOLL?!: A friend of mine called this a few weeks ago. I don’t think it’s actually the case but the Whedons couldn’t help themselves and slipped in this sly Dollhouse reference.

All in all a fairly disappointing episode, especially with the hyped and alleged connection to Thor: The Dark World. They couldn’t even muster Samuel L. Jackson? A trashed University of Greenwich was the best we could do. Badly done, show. Very badly done.
