    These could be awesome or terrible. I would love to see them work and they cant be worse than SHIELD which is just a huge disappointment in every way.

    Yeah, so many things wrong with SHIELD. Magnified even more by the promotion and people behind it coming off the huge success of Avengers. Such a wasted opportunity here.

    I will remain optimistic about this pairing with Netflix though as they will actually use characters with rich histories and interesting backstories.

    The way Marvel is kicking ass on the big screen, I guess its only fair for DC to have the better TV show.

    Lets not get ahead of ourselves. They previously worked on an Aquaman and Blue Beetle show that never happened. Flash could have the same fate. Of course I want that to happen, it would be better than just about every other show that is currently on CW.

    I haven't watched any SHIELD but I heard the 5th and 6th episodes were great improvements. I think you really need to give a show a full season before you call it a bust.

    Ive watched all but this weeks. I hear the same thing but I'm skeptical. And honestly no one will give a show a full season these days. You have 3 to 4 episodes to get people interested. If you fail at that most shows won't make it. Especially expensive ones.

    Shield has had great ratings and has already been picked up for the season.

    I don't know what any of you are talking about--I've really enjoyed it.

    Yup, it is not the avengers but is watchable.

    Has almost a firefly feel to it with the plane and all.

    Its watchable sure, its not anywhere near as good as Firefly. Its much more comparable to the mess that was Dollhouse. If you want to look at other Whedon ensemble shows.

    Is it a success for the network? Well, its ratings are good but not great. Its definitely not become the hit show that could carry the night for ABC. And they need the DVR ratings to boost it. People are not turning in and sticking around the way ABC thought they would.

    This article covers it for me.

    To bring this back to the topic of the shows that Netflix is planning and the plan they are laying out. It looks promising. It appears they are planning on doing these individual shows then leading up to a team up miniseries. Which is obviously what they did with the movies leading up to the Avengers. Plus, actual super heroes. Daredevil could be easily as gritty and dark as Arrow, perhaps darker on Netflix. Luke Cage and Iron Fist as Heroes for Hire could be an interesting twist on the genre. And withe Jessica Jones they have the chance to get a female lead superhero lead actually succeed. That seems to be a tough sell but given that Netflix has already committed to her and the miniseries she may get a shot.
