The Kitchen Sink: Initials & My Initial Response

My weekly place to share enjoyable randomness...

"with great power comes a ton of weird crap you are not prepared to deal with..."
Joss Whedon is back on TV with Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - and in addition to continuing his (commendable) policy of employing actors from previous shows (hi, Shepherd Book! howdy, Charles Gunn!), the pilot shows a lot of promise.

not #1
CBS may be #1 in producing shows with initials in the title (CSI, NCIS, etc.), but they are certainly not #1 when it comes to producing useful viewing apps for the iPad. Heck, even the CW manages to get full episodes up for me to watch (hey, I like Arrow... and my summer reality TV guilty pleasure is Capture) - but CBS can't be bothered to do that for their shows that I watch. Boo, hiss...

in the queue
I'm working on a review of Geoff & Sydney Englestein's Space Cadets: Dice Duel. After one play, I'm prepared to say the following three things:
  1. I like it!
  2. Not everybody will like it.
  3. The game could fit in a smaller box.

One of the people I follow on Twitter - cuz he's laugh out loud funny - is Matthew Baldwin. Some examples:
Twitter is like one of those brainstorm sessions where they say there are "no dumb ideas" and are immediately proved wrong. 
Two of my coworkers are chronic interrupters. Hearing them converse is like scanning the radio dial.  
If you see a parent who appears well rested, call 911 because she's kidnapping those children.

Extra points this week for identifying the source of the title of this section of the Sink.

I enjoyed the SHIELD pilot. It had a good blend of quirky character interaction and cartoon drama. I loved the teaser line about Colson.
