Episode 2 titled "0-8-4" aired this past Tuesday.  In the episode the team must hit the field in Peru to recover an unknown artifact before it falls into the wrong hands.

For myself what a difference an episode makes.  If there's anything to take away from this episode is that they know the team is a work in progress and they're trying to gel together.  This chemistry was missing in the first episode which was natural.  Also another step up is more action even though if it's of the fisticuffs and guns blazing kind.


What I wasn't crazy about in this episode is trying to make Phil Coulson a stud similar to what James T. Kirk was in the Star Trek series.  Hopefully this is a one off thing and not a recurring pattern with an old flame each episode.


What I did like was the continue Marvel movie references and of course at the end of the episode... Nick Fury!  The little cameo is hilarious as he rants on about "Don't talk to me about authority!"  I am hoping for a Scarlett Johansson appearance next as the Black Widow.  Black Widow as a sometimes S.H.I.E.L.D. agent would fit in quite nicely!
