Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D: “O-8-4”

Agents of SHIELD logoHello boys and girls.  Welcome to this week’s very special episode.  This week, Agent Ward learns a little something about the importance of working together.  That’s right, this week’s theme is…teamwork!

I thought this week’s episode, “0-8-4” was great fun, despite it’s utter lack of subtlety.  Did it change the way I think about the world?  Nope.  did it give me great insights into the human condition?  Nope.  Was there an Incan temple in the rainforest?  Uh – yeah!  Good times, people, good times.

Here’s the highlights of the week:

Say it with me, y’all:  Coulson has a girl-friend, Coulson has a girl-friend!  A super unconvincing girlfriend who is obviously up to no good!  Technically she’s an ex-girlfriend.  By the end of this episode the break-up is no longer amiable.  This surprises no one.

What I imagine Coulson's married life would be like:  Hi honey.  Could you pick up my shirt from the drycleaners?  and see if they got those bloodstains out?  Thanks a mill.

What I imagine Coulson’s married life would be like: “Hi honey. Could you pick up my shirt from the drycleaners? And see if they got those bloodstains out and that big gaping tear repaired? Thanks a mill.”

Words that are deeply inspiring in light of the fact that our elected officials can’t agree on how to pay their bills:

Couslon:  Ward, you can speak six languages.  Simmons, you have PhD’s in fields I can’t pronounce.  And Fitz – you ARE a rocket scientist!  Work it out!

Skye:  I’m good at stuff, too!

It’s the plaintive tone in her voice that sells it.

Behind the scenes - so cute!

Behind the scenes – so cute!

A few moments of hilarious physical comedy – everyone backs away from the highly dangerous alien explosive, and I spend several minutes screaming at the cast to stop leaning on the raft.  Jesus, you guys.

And my favorite line,

From the Ex:  “I’m not even going to mention the Corvette!”

Coulson:  Her name is Lola:

The Ex:  Of course it is.

“You’re having a midlife crisis!”
“Afterlife crisis, actually…”

Hands down the best moment comes from the very end of the episode.  By now two whole days have passed since the episode aired and yet I still can’t bring myself to screw this moment up for those of you who haven’t seen the episode yet.  just watch to the end, OK?

See you next week!
