Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Alien
He's not just any alien. The Dec. 2 episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will finally reveal that its mysterious blue man from outer space — the one whose rejuvenating blood saved the life of Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) — is a member of the humanoid Kree race. Yes, that's the same alien species that gave us Lee Pace's character, Ronan the Accuser, in the Marvel movie blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy. But all this means bupkis to Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team.
Break out the big guns and warm up your vocal chords because ABC has finally announced premiere dates for Marvel's Agent Carter and Galavant, as well as spring return dates for some of its most popular dramas.

Ming-Na Wen and Clark Gregg, insert: Robert Downey Jr.
Avengers star and generally awesome person Robert Downey, Jr. participated in a reddit AMA Tuesday afternoon to promote his new film The Judge with Robert Duvall.
The actor answered a myriad of questions, including "How is it that your facial hair is always on point" (thank Pedro at Shave of Beverly Hills) and "If you were a pizza, what kind of toppings would you have" (garlic, extra cheese, onions, spinach, pepperoni). But the biggest news to come out of the question and answer session is that Downey, who has played popular Marvel character Tony Stark since the first Iron Man film in 2008, said he would be willing to guest-star on the Marvel TV series, ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
After Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. revealed Ward was actually working for HYDRA, we hoped our experience with double agents was done. But in this exclusive sneak preview of Tuesday'sS.H.I.E.L.D., Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) is very clearly working in one of HYDRA's labs now.

What's in a name? A lot when it comes to show titles. Naming a show isn't easy. You want to be brief but convey what the show is about, catchy but not cliché, original but not too out-there, inviting but not alienating. The last one sounds like a no-brainer, but tell that to ABC. For a network nicknamed the Alphabet, it has been the worst title offender in recent years. (But hey, they are into irony.)

When Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered last fall, the drama failed to live up to the hype. This is because even though S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered in September, the series had to wait until Captain America was released in April to reveal HYDRA had infiltrated the organization, completely changing the direction of the show. That means they spent nearly eight months simply biding time! But once S.H.I.E.L.D. was shut down and clean-cut Agent Ward (Brett Dalton) was revealed to be a sleeper HYDRA agent, the tide began to turn in the show's favor. But was it too little too late?
Executive producer Jeff Bell talked to TVGuide.com about the show's negative reception, what's in store for Season 2 and why fans should give it a second chance.
