The Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Director SP, Agent Lauren, Agent Haley and Agent Michelle discuss the ABC television series Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode “A Trout In The Milk.” The Agents debrief you on the amazing feat the team performed shooting down the Insight Satellite during launch, the incorrect Agent Haley’s meaning of “A Trout In The Milk” as well as the other television episode named “A Trout In The Milk,” the amazing 70’s style television introduction coupled with Agent Lauren’s on-air hair flip injury (the Agents told you she was injury prone), how Agent May’s emotion powers are still evolving, a discussion if Yo-Yo could have actually left the Zephyr before the jump and what would that have looked like, Agent Lauren’s Scott Pilgrim theory of Jemma’s glowing neck dots, why the Agents have given up trying to figure out the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. time travel rules, how Deke took care of a lingering timeline correction, that Enoch FINALLY received the greeting he deserved, a lengthy discussion on how the password Swordfish was sparred the pain of early 2000’s mobile phone texting, the great cameo appearances by Patrick Warburton and Patrick’s Warburton’s mustache, the names on the Insight Threat list, the time appropriate blue S.H.I.E.L.D. jumpsuits, a little men-out-of-time bonding between Sousa and Deke, and where does the season go from here? Stay tuned after the credits for nearly 12 minutes of post credit scenes and outtakes including some “Pod-Cats” updates (Get it? “Podcast Cats” or “Pod-Cats.”) for you to enjoy!

FEEDBACK [40:28]


Dr. Gnome to you
Seemed to bring up more questions than anything. Especially with the fourth dimensional thinking and the analogy of bumping lemons.


This spectacular community of cohosts, are so good at communicating the enthusiasm of their content, I started watching, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,"
Loved the show & this podcast. Can't say enough positive comments about these podcasting AGENTS.


1:14 PM (1 hour ago)
Welp, that all happened.
I feel like all the setup of the last episode really paid off here.  Souza is adapting the best that he can, but there's only so much a person can take before they start to lose it like he did on Simmons and Deke.  There's some really fresh-out-of-the-ice-Steve-Rogers vibes he's putting off.  I did like the on-screen chemistry between him and Daisy, though.  Her showing him that not all tech is bad was a nice moment.
Is LMD Simmons still a thing?? I was sure this was the episode where she would reveal it at the end and then lead us into a Fitzsimmons flashback extravaganza next week, but alas, no such luck.  Still, they're pushing the idea pretty hard with her and Enoch's conversation, despite the fact that she apparently wasn't affected by the EMP in episodes 3 and 4 like Coulson was.
It's clear from the writing that they're paying attention to themselves.  They're acknowledging mostly everything that reviews and podcasts have questioned so far, including Simmons' confusion with the random timer, the Malick chronology from season 3, and of course May and Yoyo's inconsistencies in the early episodes.  That impresses me considering this has been in the can for over a year.
Finally, I'm hoping not to hear too much Mack hate this week.  In his position, I can't say I would have flooded that base with my parents inside, even if I was the director of SHIELD preventing a Hydra attack.  At least he had a semi-effective Plan B that hopefully won't have too many consequences next week (although I'm sure the consequences will lead to some fun action.) 
Until next time!

Clark Gregg has been aching to narrate some noire and it shows.  The style of the episode was absolutely perfect.  Between the lack of faces shown, the title "Out of the past," and clips I've seen of Sousa in later-era clothing, I think we all saw the team's decision to take him with them a mile away, but the idea is so exciting to me that I don't care.  As always, I'm curious as to whether their machinations were simply a way to emulate what actually happened in their past without dams, or if this is just the way that it always was.  But again, it's so fun that I don't really care, and I think that's their aim for this season: look at our time travel logic any way that you want, but just have fun doing it.  And I think it's working.
Chronology notes:
According to the timecard in the amazing episode Paradise Lost, Malick died in 1970.  If they decide to bring him back as an elderly man post 1973 (when No More Mr Nice Guy was released), either the Chronicoms faked his death like Souza's or it's some sloppy chronology.  I myself wouldn't mind seeing the actor who played young Gideon back because I remember he was excellent in the role.

What else did I like?
-The status quo conversation with Yoyo and Deke
-The menacing actor they got for Malick.  Totally selling it as the guy who would have raised Gideon.
-Sousa's balance of falling for some things vs not falling for others.  He might be a SHIELD legend and a great character, but he's no Peggy Carter, and he shouldn't be written as infallible.
-May's trip to the other world turning her into a super empath.  I love the idea of where we can go with that.
-Bartender Enoch was everything.
Until next time!
