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

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is the first TV show I've watched as it aired (as opposed to waiting for the DVD) since Babylon 5.

It's fun, and not terribly sexist, and I especially enjoy the moments where it takes tropes and subverts them, and I like the character of Coulson a lot.

But I'm a bit sad that it's so predictable that after only 3 episodes it's possible to create a drinking game out of it.

Feel free to add to it.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Drinking Game
Version 1.0 after 3 episodes

Take a drink every time:
  • Fitz and Simmons are being comic relief
  • Fitz and Simmons are using technobabble
    • Bonus drink: someone tells them to use English
  • May whines about being in combat
  • Ward has a problem with authority
  • Ward argues with Coulson about Skye
  • Skye and Ward are frenemies
  • It's telegraphed that Skye and Ward have sexual tension2
  • We wonder about Skye's true loyalties
    • Bonus drink: Skye's political beliefs shift mid-sentence2
  • Too much cleavage, or boob references
  • Ward beats someone up
  • Coulson beats someone up
  • Someone makes a reference to Coulson having died
  • The bad guy or the bad guy's henchmen are people of colour.2
Finish your drink:
  • If the phrase "It's a magical place" is said in reference to Tahiti.1
  • When Lola flies, because that doesn't happen nearly enough.2
