What is so amazing about the women in Agents of SHIELD is how real their skills in their respective fields feel. The three women of Agents SHIELD don’t have skill in place of character: they have skill as an inextricable part of character. Skye, the hacker, learned her skill out of a desire to discover the truth of her past. Jemma Simmons, the scientist, not only speaks candidly about the isolation of pursuing advanced education in science, but has the tics and social awkwardness to show for it. And Agent May, the pilot and combat specialist, pursues the honing of her skills with a dedication that has a real human cost and a profound effect on the way she interacts with others. These are characters who worked hard to gain their skills, and who had to make very real sacrifices to make it to the tops of their respective fields.

Just as importantly, all three are women. I know it seems like an obvious thing to say, but their being women is about much more than just their gender. All three women are undeniably attractive, but all three also steer well clear of the impossibly beautiful supergenius trope that plagues intelligent women on screen. Each has a distinct personal style, just like real women do, from Skye’s slightly grungy casual, to Simmons’ buttoned-up preppiness, to May’s no-nonsense black combat gear. Better still, though there’s not a push-up bra or a high-heeled shoe in sight, none of the three women deny their femininity in the way they present themselves, either. Skye curls her hair and wears eye makeup. Simmons wears clothes that are practical for a lab, but that are coordinated and full of appealing feminine details. Even May, who could easily hide her body under androgynous combat fatigues, wears clothing that contours to her shape. She doesn’t flaunt her body, certainly; but she doesn’t deny it either.

But the very best thing about the women of Agents of SHIELD? The fact that they are women at the very top of traditionally male-dominated fields isn’t even remarked upon. Should we celebrate when women make strides in fields historically closed to them? Of course. But the mark of real progress in equality in those fields is when women can succeed in them because of course they can. That’s what makes the women of Agents of SHIELD so downright remarkable.

“The Gas Leak Year”

Dan Harmon continually being a whiny bitch about the year he wasn’t in charge.

The show that actually wasn’t worse without him.

The TV audience suckling at his Kool-Aid teats and mindlessly agreeing with his assessment.

In this person’s…

Haha! The gas leak year, while still better than most things on tv, cannot compare to the episodes we’ve seen in season 5. Britta is a real person again, Annie & Troy have become adults, & Abed is growing as well. Troy’s farewell was beautiful & you could feel the love.

I think Dan Harmon is one of the best things to happen to recent tv. Like Moffat he raises the bar for intelligent shows.

End rant.

This doesn’t sound like a rant to me. 

Britta’s dumbification started happening long before Harmon left. He fixing his own mistakes, if anything. And frankly, we’ve seen nothing of Britta this year that compares to her brilliance in Season 4 Thanksgiving episode “Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations”. 

Troy’s sendoff was heartwarming. Don’t let it be said that I think Harmon isn’t brilliant. I just think he’s overrated. He’s a genius, not a god.

But, Pierce’s inquiry and Troy’s goodbye aside, this season is doing nothing but showing that the series is growing stale. If Harmon wants to prove his muster, he needs to stop investing all his energy in reclaiming the series as his own. That’s what brought on all the criticism in Season 4: the writers tried to replicate Harmon’s thumbprint. 

Instead, Harmon ought to be diving headfirst exploring all the big changes:

  • Pierce’s death.
  • Troy’s departure.
  • Jeff’s new job.
  • Buzz Hickey as his own individual, not as a replacement Pierce.
  • Prof. Duncan as a full-time character.
  • Chang’s next story arc.
  • Shirley’s business dreams
  • Annie’s forensic science dreams
  • Britta’s psychology dreams
  • Abed’s film dreams and his life with Troy
  • Dean Pelton’s isolation from the group and protecting Greendale from litigation

Obviously he’s not a god. Who is?

& yes Britta’s decline started long ago but I feel that Troy’s goodbye gave her a chance to be the sane one for a change.

This season isn’t perfect but it isn’t shit either. Yes it has a way to go to get back to peak performance but I wouldn’t call it stale. The episodes thus far only give me hope that the series will continue to work on growing & changing the way only Greendale can.

End rant 2: electric boogaloo

In this person’s defense, the rest of their Tumblr contains a lot of useful recipes, first aid tips and inspiring essays about the nature and value of the human spirit.
