After watching several MCU movies (particularly CA2) in preparation for Age of Ultron, I wanted more source material and ended up mainlining this despite being completely meh about it when it first aired. I'm still unconvinced that the writers think SHIELD is as sketchy as I do, which is frustrating, because they keep toeing the line of "SHIELD is untrustworthy" and then hastily backpedaling and reassuring us that Coulson is great and trustworthy, and therefore by extension, so is SHIELD.

On the plus side, the second season added some much more interesting new characters and threw a few wrenches in the "happy team yay" vibe from the first few episodes.

As previously noted on Twitter, I did not hate this! I actually liked it? And I actually liked Tony Stark??? WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE WORLD??!!

It took me about three tries to finally watch this past the point Thor starts to realize he might be stuck on Earth.

Spoilers for Thor and Avengers )

I rewatched this to try and catch more bits of Black Widow characterization, and wow, now I remember why I was so very hesitant when going in to watch Captain America last year.

So yeah. Despite overflow happy hearts from The Avengers, still hate Tony and Iron Man here, am appalled by how he treats Pepper, hate the objectification of all the women, really hate how Tony's statement about solving world peace in the very beginning is never really dissected, and overall am left with very bad taste in my mouth.

ETA: Further notes, with spoilers for both movies )

Possibly I watched Avengers again yesterday! The action scenes are much less thrilling the second time around, but I had a lot of fun looking more closely at the characters.

Not plot spoiler, but just in case )

Anyone have good gen team recs? I really want ones that are post-movie and explore the movie dynamics. Doesn't have to be the whole team, but I basically want stuff in which the friendships or alliances or teambonding is focused on more than romance and/or sex.

I think I've seen a Black Widow prequel movie confirmed in one place, but I don't know how official that is?

Spoilers for the comics (I think... at least what I could figure out via Wiki) and for the movie.

My ideal movie )

Oh Hollywood. Make more things for me, please?
