If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I see potential in it, for a pilot, it was actually good, for a pilot. May give it up to five episodes before deciding.
Watch it. No one was really expecting a superhero show, and it is not. It's spies and agents in a superhero world...and it's both good, serious, fun and PHIL MUTHAFUCKIN' COULSON is awesome in it.
You do have a point, especially with long-time characters like Quartermain not on-board...but then again, there will NEVER be a Dum-Dum Duggan because there is no anti-aging formula in this universe (and again, you can blame the Ultimate garbage-verse for that). And to be honest, this version is based HEAVILY on the Ultimates universe, in which nearly no one from that list exists anymore.
As for the team...well, Coulson was a character created in the first Iron Man film FOR the film, so in a way it makes sense to have a fresh team of new characters for him to work with that we can learn about. I would like to see more of the old-school characters show up, and yes I do want a few superheroes and villains too. I liked the pilot enough to say let's see what the season has to offer.
It's pretty much X-files meets Heroes
