In short, no.

In length, I haven't watched because I've had about 90 billion other things that have needed to get done and those things have occupied most of my time. One biggie has been hoping against hope, logic, reason and recent history that either the Toronto Maple Leafs or for the New Jersey Devils to go all the way this year. That and watching the games has occupied a goodly portion of my evenings.

All this is to say that I've heard literally NOTHING but good things about the show. There's a tremendous amount of interest in it and it's clearer than it ever has been that Marvel understands how to market their product. What better way to sustain interest in the Cinematic Marvel Universe between films than a TV show? It's actually dispiriting watching WB/DCE flounder without a Kevin Feige figure to lead the way with their comic book material.

In fact, there's a kinda fucked up sense in which DC properties and Marvel properties are being managed in external media the same way that the companies were managed for decades. Marvel had an editor in chief from way back he guided the overall company and tried to keep the various titles as consistent with one another as possible. Jim Shooter made fuckloads of enemies doing this very thing.

Meanwhile, DC has always been more decentralized, with each book or family of books all operating as a fairly autonomous fiefdom. Yeah, they'd come together for the odd crossover and whatnot but fundamentally DC historically lacked the central planning structure of Marvel.

It's kinda funny and maybe fitting that their external media exhibit a lot of those same characteristics.

I watched the Pilot episode & haven't watched one since. Didn't I like it? Loved it! So why ain't I watching it? The reason is a 4-letter word: WORK. Flip-flopped on shifts the last little while but back on 2nd. Incidentally the Pilot was right before I went back to my shift. I've since meant to watch the missed eps on Time-Warner's 'On Demand' but I've yet to do it. Working a lot of over-time & then when I'm not, trying to be online so yeah, I've neglected it. I'm like 5 eps behind or something. Better get caught up before I simply have to buy the DVD set. But the same thing happened with SUPERNATURAL Season 8 so I guess 'Agents' is in good company.

I watched the first 3 episodes, but it didn't "hook" me enough to keep watching. Not a bad show at all, just not what I'm inclined to watch on a weekly basis.

I'll probably catch it On Demand some time down the line.
