It is a Marvel TV show... the alone will get the high rating on the pilot. The problem is that the pilot did not deliver. I have not watch the 2nd episode, but so far everyone in this thread said the 2nd episode is better? If it is really the case, someone messed up. They need to put the best episode in the pilot to hook people in! Oh well.It's not like the ratings were terrible. Yes they dropped from the first episode but that first episode was the highest rated new drama premiere in 4 years.

I bet Thor make a cameo in a week or so, right before the movie comes out. I was really hoping this would be a good show but it, so far, just looks like a big commercial for marvel films that came out this year.I have a feeling that if they don't come up with some real superheroes to spark some stories with action that this show will end up like I predicted originally. Boring side stories based on secondary characters from the original Avengers movies won't cut it. They need some big talent to keep people hooked.
I think your theory is absolutely bonkers. If they thought it wouldn't last, they wouldn't have green lit the series. There's no way they release a series that they think will tank and damage a multibillion dollar brand/franchise to provide a lead in to a movie that will crush the box office regardless of said prelude.I think that maybe they didn't really expect the show to last and they were indeed, just capitalizing on the other Marvel movies that came out this last summer and are using it as a prelude to the THOR movie come November.
I noticed Coulson saying that too! I'm wondering what he/they are hinting at! I really like the show it's fun & interesting I'll be sticking with it."Tahiti. It's a magical place." Coulson said pretty much the exact same thing in the Pilot. Hmmm...
Rising Tide / Skye storyline got interesting there at the end. And a nice solution to the "this Tech can't be trusted to be controlled by (fill in the blank)." I had to shuffle my timers as I lost the last 20-50 seconds of the episode on my ViP 211. I thought I fixed it after last week (as a result, I missed out on Lola's talents) but I was wrong. Third time's the charm!
Popular theory is he is a LMD - Life Model Decoy. - I guess you could call him an android . Made popular in the SHIELD comic books. They have been in use since the 1st issue . My theory is the one who got killed in the AVENGERS movie was the LMD and they had to do something to the "real" Coulson to make him believe he died. My fiance believes this one is the LMD He keeps coming up with clues of why that is the case.Is Coulson a real person or a robot/android? I may have missed it but from some of the comments it seems like he did die and he was brought back by some other means like cloning or is a robot. It was a process that took a few months and he does not know, he thinks he went to Tahiti on vacation during the missing months. The only reason I think robot is a comment Nick Fury made about him being being changed into some other machine if he failed (too lazy to fire up the DVR and find the exact quote)...
