  • Better than last week

    This episode was not great but better than last week, so there's still hope!
  • good

    bad ratings?

    how much did these people get paid to give bad critics?

    this was an awesome episode.
  • The Asset

    Skye is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters on TV and although she has been a major part of every episode thus far, this installment really focused on her learning and getting in the thick of things, and it was smart to have that kind of episode early on.

    Some funny lines surprisingly as well, but a lot of action and a good episode of SHIELD.
  • This episode was good... Finally...

    Well, I wasn't expecting it, but this episode was actually good. There were some moments that the show really wanted to pass something to you, didn't do it in the best way, but still...

    Acting and writing were improved but still far from satisfying (me). This thing where the "heroes" are popping out of nowhere and neutralize the "bad ones" need to stop, for example. And someone should be wounded to make the mission realistic. And the male nerd needs to stop talking about monkeys and become the adorable nerd he was on the first two episodes. Oh, and more guards for the bad guys, please.

    Aside from that, the episode was good. And with a nice and unexpected plot twist. Waiting for the next episode...moreless
  • I liked it

    Maybe I have a really, really positive attitude about the show, because I'm a fan, but I did like it xD 2013/10/13/rewatch-a-second-time-and-re-reading-this-marvels-agents-of-s-h-i-e-l-d-3/

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Grant: And the attackers?
      Coulson: Invisible.
      Skye: Wait, invisible? Cool. (Grant glares) But terrible.

    • Coulson: Excuse me.
      Todd Chesterfield: Who the hell are you?
      Coulson: A concerned citizen who happens to be a member of a gigantic bureaucratic organization that is tracking your every move.

    • Ian Quinn: I'm now a naturalized citizen of this fair country. Stunning beaches, beautiful tax laws, and a deep-seated hatred of outside forces telling them what to do.
      Dr. Hall: Sounds like your dating profile.

    • Grant: I need a new strategy.
      Coulson: Try no strategy. Stop thinking like an operative, start thinking like a person. Maybe Skye will let that person help her.
      Grant: Help her what?
      Coulson: Think like an operative.

    • Coulson: Dr. Hall? Agent Coulson. We have an exit strategy.
      Dr. Hall: S.H.I.E.L.D.?
      Coulson: Yes, sir. Let's get you out of here.
      Dr. Hall: I'm sorry, Mr. Coulson. I'm right where I'm supposed to be.
      Coulson: I'll be honest. Our strategy did not take into consideration you taking that.

    • Main Guard: Kid's got balls.
      Skye: Thanks, but... yuck.
