1:32 ComingSoon.net: If they are going to screen the pilot, you won’t hear from Blake for a while 🙂

2:00 Comment From Jacob B. What is the story to Coulson’s miraculous recovery?
2:00 Blake Wright: They are going to show the pilot!!!
2:00 EDouglasCS: I’m guessing they won’t reveal that immediately… or maybe the show is a prequel.
2:00 EDouglasCS: The whole pilot? Wowzers? Guess we won’t hear from you for a bit Blake? 🙂
2:00 Blake Wright: People just went nuts!
2:01 ComingSoon.net: Have fun Blake! Stay tuned readers…
2:01 Blake Wright: Here is comes!
2:01 Blake Wright: Making me shut down. Bye!
2:01 Comment From Fanamir Will any plot elements from the one-shots, such as Jasper Sitwell, the duo from Item 47, or the Zodiac key set to appear in Agent Carter?
2:02 EDouglasCS: I have to imagine they will try to include some of that stuff… but I get the impression Agent Carter might be in the past if Dominic Cooper is in that One Shot
2:02 EDouglasCS: Like maybe the early days of SHIELD
2:02 Comment From Hythlodeus a running commentary for the pilot? pretty please?
2:03 EDouglasCS: They have to shut down electronics whenever they show footage including laptops so Blake may be offline for the next 45 minutes. Hopefully he’ll have some things to say.
2:07 EDouglasCS: If it’s a 90 minute pilot then it’s probably 70 minutes of footage although the panel only goes until 3 Pacific so maybe they won’t show the whole pilot.
2:09 Comment From Aerialgreen Will you please consider a non-spoiler review SHH? really, I want SO much to know what happens on the pilot but I’d hate myself if I don’t watch it properly come Sept 24
2:09 EDouglasCS: I’ve asked Blake to post a couple thoughts here but post something longer on SHH… not sure what kind of spoilers they’ll show
2:14 Spencer Perry-SHH: So anybody know any good jokes?
2:15 EDouglasCS: Nope
2:15 Spencer Perry-SHH: I’ve got one!
2:15 Spencer Perry-SHH: Where does Napoleon keep his armies?
2:15 Spencer Perry-SHH: In his sleevies!
2:16 Comment From AgentPhil “Why won’t Marvel say how Coulson survived?” “They want to keep it Loki.”
2:16 Spencer Perry-SHH: That’s the spirit!
2:17 Comment From Sam H when does the panel start?
2:17 Spencer Perry-SHH: It’s already begun but they’re screening the pilot for those in attendance, and they’re not allowed to blog during the screening.
2:18 Comment From Jamie I don’t want to link off the site, but there is a live blog of the pilot going on right now over at Marvel’s site.
2:19 EDouglasCS: Jamie we’re not linking to Marvel’s site. We’ll have our own write-up one it’s done which will be more than just bits of quotes.
2:19 Spencer Perry-SHH: and context!
2:38 Comment From Roku Does agents of shield connect to avengers 2 or is it its own thing?
2:38 Spencer Perry-SHH: Its set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but as far as direct connections we’ll just have to wait and see.
2:38 EDouglasCS: I don’t think it connects to Avengers but you’ll probably see people with powers in it.
2:39 EDouglasCS: Not sure about Samuel L Jackson either… he’s pretty firmly in the Cinematic universe
2:39 Spencer Perry-SHH: Maybe Level 7 is above Fury’s paygrade
2:40 EDouglasCS: What is this Level 7 thing?
2:40 Comment From TheDarkNut is it a 1/2 hour show or an hour long show?
2:40 EDouglasCS: I believe an hour long.
2:42 EDouglasCS: Marvel’s Agent M was just asked to shut off his computer too
2:42 EDouglasCS: Ha ha
2:42 EDouglasCS: Oh I see re: Level 7… I thought that refererred to the level of superheroes/villains they’d go after
2:42 Spencer Perry-SHH: I can’t imagine it’s going to be much longer, panel is supposed to end at 3
2:42 Comment From TV-Watcher Do you think there’s going to be the same press issue as there was with Dollhouse and ‘things will pickup from episode 6’ – ‘the network want’s standalone and not continuing storylines? For comic fans you’ve got to be worried they might dumb it down to be more accessible for channel hoppers.
2:43 EDouglasCS: Probably more standalone I’d guess… that generally works better on television.
2:43 Spencer Perry-SHH: I’m sure there will be an arc for the season though
2:44 Spencer Perry-SHH: Blake is currently watching the pilot and should be back with us momentarily
2:44 EDouglasCS: Silas has just started live blogging Game of Thrones if you need something to do while waiting for Blake’s thoughts on the pilot
