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?

old gods do new jobs

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.

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

A Lesson in Humility

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.

And So It Begins

EW reports that S.H.I.E.L.D. has gotten underway, and with that bit of news we have our first trio of photos from the set. They're about like that Ender's Game set photo that was just part of a wall.

There’s Much Ado About Joss Whedon’s 2013 Schedule: S.H.I.E.L.D., Dr. Horrible, Avengers


The Avengers sequel may not be in theaters until 2015 but that doesn't mean Joss Whedon isn't already working on it.

How does he plan to do it all?

Vital Information for Your Everyday Life

Last night marked the television debut of Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible, and while I think it's safe to say that the majority of its target audience had already seen it once or five times, it airing on TV is still pretty cool. Not as cool, though, as the fact that stars Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day, as well as writers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, livetweeted the West coast viewing. (Where were you, Neil Patrick Harris?!) Fillion fans, please note: He doesn't like it when you yell "The hammer is my penis" at him in the street. Check out the Tweets under the jump.
