Another appetite wheter has made an appearance for Agents of SHIELD, and let me tell you, it’s very “Joss Whedon-y”. Consider this bit of dialog from the promo (embeded below):
“What does SHIELD” stand for Agent Ward?”
“Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division.”
“And what does that mean to you?”
“It means someone really wanted our intials to spell out SHIELD.”
That is Joss Whedon dialog if I’ve ever heard it, and that makes me very happy. Many people may not quite get the whole Buffy and Angel phenomenon, but that type of writing is why we loved those shows so much (oh, and don’t forget Firefly too, there may not have been much of it, but the writing for that show was also top notch).
This is why I’m excited for this show. Whedon may be busy, and he may not be the every day show runner the way he was for Buffy/Angel/Firefly, but he’s putting his stamp on it early and he’s going to be around. I’m looking forward to this show a lot!
