Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Yesterday's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was better than most Joss Whedon pilots, which means the show that follows could be even more amazing than Firefly, Dollhouse, or maybe even Buffy or Angel. Time will tell.

As Agent Grant Ward noted in yesterday's episode, "Someone really wanted our initials to spell S.H.I.E.L.D." In the show, the initials stand for Strategic Homeland Intervention, Espionage and Logistics Division. That's pretty tortured. Surely the writers could have come up with something smoother, like...

Super Hot Insanely Erotic Living Dolls
Shadow Hegemony In Extremis Living Dominion
Special Hazard Ignition Explosive Lethal Demolitions
Silly Hippies In Extremely Ludicrous Denial
Soldiers, Hunks, Ingenues Evade Lethal Danger
Sacrificed! He Is Exact Life-Model Decoy

And of course...
Spider-Man, Human Torch, Iceman Excluded Licence Disney
