    I’m excited to see some sneak peaks, but I am just getting annoyed with these long breaks! Are there any more breaks after this or no?

    • Director E says

    I think Marvel is take some unnecessary risk breaking the AoS ‘momentum’ with this special. UNLESS , AoS was always considered a ‘experimental serie’ for all this kind of things and even an eventual serie failure was a calculated fact .

    Well , good luck for Marvel , and i wish all the best to ‘Agents of shield’ .

    • Director E says

      The schedule IS aggravating, but all network TV shows have the same issues. Mostly because there are roughly 35 weeks in the “season” but only 22-24 episodes of the show per season. They don’t see it as experimental – at least not in the sense you mean – ABC has said the show will be around a long time.

        Well, the Olimpcs may cause some damage on schedule that’s is something we should take in consideration . So , if ABC has said the show will be around for a long time , i admit the probability AoS first season will got 24 episodes and finish in may .
