    The point is to make money - and the MCU is doing that in a way that DC isnt even close to.

    As for Marvels TV work, I think SHIELD sucks big time, but Daredevil was excellent and I am very impressed with Jessica Jones thus far.

    Regarding how well the TV shows are intergrated with the movies, the critic has a point here. A0S idea of 'intergration' seems to consist of dropping a name every so often or referring to the fact there was an invasion of New York, and none of the other TV shows have really done any better so far.

I think Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter are bland to the extreme. Flash and Arrow are way better than both. But the Netflix shows Daredevil and Jessica Jones are better than the DC stuff partly because they can be violent, have sexual content and cursing.

Marvel should just cancel Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter and concentrate on the Netflix shows.

    What I would say is that its early days for he Marvel TV stuff, alsi Civil War may prove to be the watershed opportunity for intergrating the casts of both mediums.

    On a personal note, I dont really want the likes of Daredevil to be tied to tightly to the MCU because ~Daredevil has always been better written when he was somewhat detached from the wider Marvel Universe.
