    I really want to watch this one. It has Clark Greg, who has been fantastic in the Marvel movies. Good stuff.

    All white cast…This doesn’t surprise me.

    @Lena Ming-Na is oriental.

    I thought the upfronts won’t start until May 13??

    OMIGOD! The periods have gone missing! ;)

    In all seriousness, does anyone know if the “Marvel’s” or the “Agents of” or the periods are officially still there?

    and there was MUCH rejoicing!

    Darn, I thought this was going to be a period piece.

    Great another show that ABC will cancel before it’s even allowed to survive a first season. I am not even going to invest 1 minute of my time on a network that has such little regard for male viewers. ABC is a feminized network and they’re only interested in female viewers.

    I watched V (Only to see it cancelled just as it was getting interesting), Detroit 1-8-7 (Too gritty)”The River” and finally “Last Resort”(Horrible time slot”. ABC just isn’t committed to developing action and male oriented shows and why it keeps renewing crap like the “Bachelorette”.

    It was good thing “Lost” was on the air a couple of years ago as it wouldn’t have ever lived to see the day for a 3rd or let alone even a 2nd season.
