Agents of SHIELD Showrunners Respond to Criticism, Blame Unrealistic Fan Expectations

Last time Agents of SHIELD showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen took to the internet to defend their show, a lot of you, our readers, didn’t buy what they had to say. Others of you defended Agents of SHIELD, pointing out that Whedon shows often start out slow and get exponentially better as time goes on. Now, with season one about to come out of its (third? fourth?) mini-hiatus and sink its teeth into the good stuff, Whedon and Tancharoen have responded to their critics yet again, this time in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Do you agree with them this time?

Eliza Dushku Kicks Butt In Machinima’s New Sci-Fi Short, The Gable 5

From director Kevin Tancharoen, of Mortal Kombat: Legacy fame (not to mention brother of SHIELD’s Maurissa Tancharoen) comes another Machinima original. It’s definitely got a sci-fi bent, I got a slight Portal vibe, but Tancharoen calls it, “a sci-fi, futuristic version of The Truman Show.” Besides Eliza Dushku doing what she does best, it also features a few other familiar faces.

Agents of SHIELD Creators Talk Sif and May

After a month’s hiatus, Marvel’s Agent’s of SHIELD will return to screens tonight with “T.A.H.I.T.I.” and soon with “Yes Men,” a highly anticipated episode (by me, at least) featuring Jamie Alexander as Lady Sif of Asgard. What’s it like to borrow a cape character straight out of Marvel’s movie universe? On the occasion of the end of their long break, show creators Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon answered some questions for Comic Book Resources and touched on the female characters close to our hearts.

Agents of SHIELD Bosses Respond to All The Bad Things You’ve Been Saying About Their Show

It’s hard to think of a recent show that was more highly anticipated than Agents of SHIELD. Marvel! Coulson! He lives! Full disclosure: I don’t watch the show. But, being the in the profession I’m in, cultural osmosis has given me what I think is an accurate impression of the general reaction to the show: It’s generic. It’s slow. Coulson’s the only interesting character. There’s potential, but it doesn’t live up to it. Did I come close?

Showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen have heard your complaints, and in an interview with Comic Book Resources they responded to them.
