AGENTS OF SHIELD continues to disappoint.

It isn't actively BAD, but the only reason I keep watching is out of some sort of sense of loyalty, to Marvel, or Whedon, or SOMETHING. Lis walked out halfway through this episode, realizing that she'd rather play cards on the computer than keep watching. Not like she was AGAINST watching it; it's just that there were more exciting things to do, like play online Rummikub.

There was ALMOST an interesting moment where it looked like Agent Ward was going to have to seduce a big, burly Belarusan guy, but they didn't go with it, so, meh. On the other hand, this was the first episode where there WASN'T a woman using her womanly wiles to control a man.

Also, yay black people as combination villain/victims! Not only are Black people dangerous criminals, but they don't even have agency, since they're just manipulated by more powerful white criminal organizations!
