Why Agents of SHIELD Isn't Working

We'll get back to our positivity-fest shortly, but I wanted to talk a little bit about Agents of SHIELD, and why it's not working. I know it has fans out there, but its viewership has steadily dropped since its admittedly wildly successful debut episode. I, personally, had expected to like the show a lot more than I have. However, it's not really working for me nearly as well as a TV show about SHIELD should be, and that is, I think, the whole reason it's not working: it's not a show about SHIELD, it's mostly just a generic genre show.

What DC Does Right

About a week back, I talked about what Marvel does right, and now it's time to talk about the other of the Big Two. DC gets a lot of flak, some of it deserved, some of it not so much. Viewed over the length of their publishing history, I think it would be difficult to argue that they haven't had an enormous net positive impact on comic books, and that continues to be the case today. Beyond that, they continue to make smart business decisions, and to do so in a generally pretty agile manner. So what does DC do right?

New Domain

Hey folks! While the site is still on, I've gone ahead and snagged, so you should be able to go to instead of having to type out the longer address. The old address will still work, but it'll redirect you to the new domain. One unfortunate side effect of this is that the older comments have been lost, but everything else seems to be in working order. I'll be getting back to posting with "What DC Does Right" later this week, but for now, welcome!
