A review of the Agents of SHIELD Season 1 Blu-ray. Blu-ray.com reviews the first season, the Blu-ray video and audio quality and the extras on the discs as well.

That's a fair review. Going in last year I told my family the season would probably be like Buffy: Season 2/Angel: Season 1. Starts out rough and episodic as the writers work out the kinks and the actors find their characters' voices. Then towards the end of the season they bring together all the characters and elements that worked and put them in a serialized arc that sets the groundwork for the rest of the series.

I'm really looking foward to this season. I loved Maurissa and Jed's work on Dollhouse (Epitaph One, Belonging and The Attic) and can't wait to see what they'll do now that the show's found its voice. On a semi-related note, since Agent Carter and Daredevil are going to be serialized from the very beginning I'm kind of hoping they debut fully developed like Firefly did. Either way I'm excited for them too.

It's hard to believe that ten years ago I was still mourning the loss of Angel and wondering if Mutant Enemy would even exist anymore after Serenity. Now we have three Mutant Enemy shows on the air for the first time since Firefly AND a $200 million summer blockbuster by Joss to look foward to. Even if (worst case scenario) come next year none of these projects lived up to Buffy, Angel and Firefly I'm really happy that Joss & co are having this level of attention and success. They've certainly earned it.
Those 2 shows arent mutant enemy productions.

Yeah, Mutant Enemy has nothing to do either Agent Carter and Daredevil.

I thought the review was fair as well, though I think shows should always make more of an effort on the extras so it's disappointing when there isn't enough planning built in for extras to be above and beyond. At this point, DVD and blu-ray releases aren't an afterthought anymore.

I think the rapid decline in dvd sales has taken the wind out of the sails of dvd extra's for the foreseeable future.
