As much as I am enjoying this show and still holding out hope it will step up its game, there is a discernible difference between this show and DC's Arrow - which is in Arrow's favor. SHIELD has far more superior production value and is directly tied to a movie, but they are failing to utilize the MASSIVE collection of characters Marvel has at its disposal. I understand Downy and Johansson won't make an appearance on a tv show, so no Iron Man or Widow, but why not throw in Silver Sable, "Dum Dum" Dugan or at least a decent villain like Absorbing Man. The build up to real villains is too slow and is now hurting them in ratings. Cheaper Arrow on the other hand is going BALLISTIC with DC heroes and villains, plus the Flash soon to appear, and the positive rating show people are happy with this. Marvel - step up your game!!
