Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD

A promo for the new TV show Agents of SHIELD was recently released on YouTube.  The TV show, which will air on ABC, follows the exploits of the SHIELD group from the Avengers movie.  The preview labels the show as being “from director Joss Whedon”.  Whether that’s just an acknowledgement that he made the movie the TV show is based on, or whether that’s saying he’s actually going to be directing the TV show, I’m not sure.

Either way, from the preview, it looks like it should be quite enjoyable.  It looks to be full of action and it looks like it will probably have a different, self-contained story every week.  As long as it doesn’t go the incredibly slow soap opera route of Once Upon a Time it should be quite enjoyable.  If Joss Whedon actually is directing it, that will bring even more to the table.

This seems to be an up-coming TV show to watch for.

New YouTube Layout

Just for the record, the new YouTube layout is absolute poop.  It doesn’t even have all the features and functionality of the old YouTube layout.

In old YouTube, if you set it to only show your subscriptions when you went to the front page, it would remember that when you went back to the front page again later.  In new YouTube, it doesn’t.

In old YouTube, if you removed a video from your subscription feed because you’d already watched it or weren’t interested in it, it would remember that.  In new YouTube, it doesn’t.

In old YouTube, you could sort search results by most recent.  In new YouTube, you can only sort by date blocks, not by most recent.

I find myself wishing there was a viable alternative to YouTube.
