Mini-Review by Medinnus
It was a dark and stormy night...
I can't ever not like seeing my old boss animated (Editor's Note: MAA guest-reviewer Medinnus used to work for Marvel Productions!) - even if he doesn't really sound like him - except for the comment about him using 15 words where one will do. It's true.
Other than that, I wish there would be some consistency in the quality. We've had so many good episodes lately, but this one... stilted dialogue. MJ and Harry badly written. Coulson being the principal and the school being retrofitted as a S.H.I.E.L.D. sub-rosa facility is one of the big mistakes of the premise of the show, and a weak story point - unfortunately, many of the weak spots of this episode proceeded from that premise.
I suppose unless they rebooted the series, their initial mistakes will periodically come back to haunt them.
