Guardians of the Galaxy plot synopsis:

Quote
"A U.S. pilot who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone wants."

I'm going to assume you're all thinkin' who I'm thinkin'.

Which would really be something -- a superhero movie with a female lead.

So there's a One Shot on the Avengers bonus features that may be worth a purchase alone. Rest of the bonus features are eh. The original intro and end were interesting if only to be different.

Peter Quill is Star-Lord and was an astronaut. Pretty sure they're still going to use him.

Can't find a scan of the page where Thor agrees to join the Ultimates only after Bush agrees to increase the foreign aid budget, and Fury deadpans, "And to think I voted for Nader."

Watching the new Avengers Assemble cartoon.
It's superbly awful.  Every line is either a punchline or its set-up. The voices are off and animation is a bit stiff but the writing is just god damn terrible.

Why are people praising this?

All I've seen is the pilot.  It didn't do much for me but it didn't seem bad, either.  I'll see how I feel when I've watched more, but I still haven't finished the last few eps of EMH, so.

I actually watched pretty much all of EMH and was tickled absolutely retarded by it. Then that other thing that came after it was just... what the fuck ever. Thanks for reminding me that cartoons are stupid baby shit for stupid babies.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: because Torchwood didn't have enough Whedon quips.

On the plus side, this one doesn't seem to be written by a 13-year-old. It also has levity, which makes it a fun show compared to most of what's out there. It shows promise, and once they get past the pilot and establishing episodes, maybe things will really open up and we can see what they have in mind. And maybe, just maybe, the next episode will have actual elements of the Marvel universe in it.

It needs fewer generic sexy young, inexplicably talented people and more Agent Coulson. And characters like Agent Coulson.

Also, wow, they really played the hell up out of the Luke Cage bait-and-switch.

My favorite part of the show was that Jack Kirby got a creator credit right upfront.

My least favorite was the overwhelming sense that we're supposed to be rooting for Big Brother.

So fucking sick of that trope.  I loved The Authority around, oh, say, 1999-2001, but Jesus Christ, it's as played as Watchmen and Dark Knight Returns at this point.

The show had a few good moments of whimsy.  It, and the entire fucking genre, needs more.

I got what I was hoping for from The Agent Phil Coulson Show Starring Clark Gregg. All those other characters who were there for some reason were pretty good for a pilot as well.

Yeah, it really feels like someone sat down and went, "Wow, people love Coulson, let's make a show about Coulson!" without any thought as to why Coulson is popular.  Not a bad show but it could have been a lot more too.  Or maybe will be.  Pilots are always kind of weak.

Or possibly Coulson's inclusion was an afterthought and they started putting the show together before Gregg was onboard.

But given that this is a Whedon/Whedon/Tancharoen show, I think "network meddled with original pitch" is probably a pretty safe bet.

(You know, I never did get around to watching the original Dollhouse pilot...)

Course, I'd be happy to see it go full Steranko (who also got a credit!) and play up all the James Bond shit with some psychedelia thrown in.  Course, that's up there with "Fantastic Four movie set in 1962" on my list of awesome Marvel adaptations that will never actually happen.
