According to Comic Book Movie on Jan. 31, with a ratings declining for ABC's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", it turns out that Clark Gregg has his own opinion for those fans who have stopped watching the show. In fact, he had declared such individuals as losers for not having realized that the past 12 episodes were connected to each other. It appears the show is building up to something, but the "fans" seem to lack the patience to stick around and find out.

"Those aren't geeks. Those are losers. You start to have people like Deathlok showing up; You start to understand that a bunch of these different episodes were connected. A lot of the geeks that I respect most...are very excited about where we’re going. So I’m going to choose to work for them".

Such a situation could be analogous or even their fanfare questionable, much like when someone's football team is doing poorly they jump off the bandwagon. Gregg did back peddle a bit after the previous statement. He had an epiphany finding out that they aren't really losers at all, but simply frustrated that they had to wait so long during the 12-episode "discovery period".

"I guess I don’t mean to say that people who have been frustrated by that discovery period are necessarily losers. I just think they should be, perhaps, a little more patient".

Such patience is to be rewarded because some time ago, it had been discovered that "Weird Science's" and "Twister's" Bill Paxton is to appear on the show as Agent Garrett and has a historical connection to Agent Ward. Nick Fury had trained both Garrett and Paxton, but it appears they have different methods in conflict resolution which could bode to be problematic as this could ensue conflict between the two of them.

That being said, it appears Gregg is going to stick around for the show which will continue to move forward with its next episode this upcoming Tuesday on ABC's Marvel's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." at 8 p.m. EST. Also, special guest Stan Lee will be making an appearance which is something Marvel fans would look forward to watching. So perhaps when the prodigal fans return to view the show, perhaps all will be forgotten.
